Simplified Gastric Bypass: The Brazilian Technique
- 34 Downloads
Especially after the expansion of laparoscopy approach, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass has become the most common bariatric procedure worldwide and, despite the current growth of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy indications, is still being considered the most traditional technique for the surgical treatment of morbid obesity. Since its original description more than 50 years ago, gastric bypass has undergone an unremitted evolution to improve outcomes and minimize the risk of complications and/or adverse effects. Several technical proposals were published over this period. The simplified gastric bypass emerged as a simpler, easier systematization in order to make the surgical steps less complex, shortening the learning curve and facilitating both overall reproducibility and teaching-and-learning process.
