An Overview of the Duodenal Switch ?

The duodenal switch is a surgical procedure similar to stomach banding or gastric bypass surgery. The switch involves modifying the small intestine in such a way that two routes are created and filtered into a similar channel that is normally followed. One routes carries the content and food from the stomach for digestion while the other route carries bile from the liver. The two meet in the common channel and then are digested and moved into the large intestine. The purpose of the combination is to limit the amount of calories and fat that are absorbed into the body and promote weight loss.

Duodenal Switch Bypass Gastric Surgery?

One type of bypass gastric surgery is called biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch. It involves bypassing the duodenum and jejunum by detaching the lleum part of the small intestine from the duodenum and jejunum and reattaching it to the pouch part of the stomach created by resection. During resection, up to 80 percent of the stomach has been removed, hence the stomach can allow only a small portion of food, and the digestive tract can only digest a small portion. Although effective, biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch requires more follow-through regarding nutritional care and is considered a high maintenance procedure.
