OBJECTIVE: To evaluate laparoscopic Mini-Gastric Bypass in the treatment of morbid obesity.
METHOD: Three Hundred patients with a mean BMI of 41.84.5 Kg/M2 underwent a laparoscopic Mini-Gastric Bypass between 2011 to 2016. A laparoscopic approach with five trocar incisions was used to create a long narrow gastric tube; this was then anastomosed ante-colically to a loop of jejunum 200 cm. distal to the ligament of Treitz Peri-operative and short-term follow-up results up to May 2016 are reported.
CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic Mini-Gastric Bypass is a easy, safe, and effective procedure in the treatment of morbid obesity in our short term experience.
