ROUX-EN-Y GASTRIC BYPASS

 

The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass combines restrictive and malabsorptive procedures and comprises 75 percent of bariatric surgical procedures.

During the procedure, stapling is used to create a small, upper-stomach pouch that restricts the amount of food able to be consumed. A portion of small intestine is bypassed and connects the new stomach pouch with the remainder of the small intestine. This bypassed limb delays food from mixing with digestive juices to avoid complete caloric absorption. The malabsorption obtained after the gastric bypass is not to the extent as after true malabsorption operations (biliopancreatic bypass/duodenal switch). Weight loss is achieved by drastically limiting the amount of food or liquids that a patient can ingest.
