Statement on Mini Gastric Bypass

BOMSS statement on mini-gastric bypass option

A position statement on mini gastric bypass operations (MGB) has been released by the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society (BOMSS).

In an MGB, the stomach is divided to form a long gastric pouch with subsequent anastomosis of that pouch to the jejunal loop. The narrow tube of gastric pouch affords a restrictive component and the bypassed small bowel contributes the malabsorptive element.
