Loop duodeno-enterosomies with sleeve gastrectomy can be safely performed, according to a group of researchers Germany and Poland. The study, ‘Pylorus preserving loop duodeno-enterostomy with sleeve gastrectomy – preliminary results.’ published online in BMC Surgery, concludes that this approach could ‘open new alternatives in bariatric surgery with the possibility for inter-individual adaptation’.
In the paper, the investigators from Silesian Medical University, Katowitz, Poland, the University of Freiburg and University of Schleswig-Holstein, Lübeck, Germany, present their early results of a proximal postpyloric loop duodeno-jejunostomy associated with a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), compared to results of a parallel, but distal LSG with a loop duodeno-ileostomy as a two-step procedure.
