Gastric Bypass

It consists of altering the process of digestion, preventing the passage of food through the duodenum.

It is a combined procedure, restrictive and malabsorptive, which makes a change in the gastric anatomy reducing the stomachs capacity and modifying the intestinal anatomy.
The procedure consists of dividing the upper portion of the stomach, intestine and cutting in the upper small intestine, leaving a loop of intestine, which is known as biliopancreatic loop, which will not absorb any food,but exclusively carry bile and only pancreatic juice. The intestinal loop will be generated or handle food that is intended only to transport food from the gastric remnant to the common loop, which is where the two bowel loops together, and their absorptive capacity is limited by not having bile or pancreatic juices that are essential for the absorption of food. Once in the common handle, bind bile and pancreatic juices are united to allow complete absorption of food, the intention of this surgery is that the common handle be only five feet, with the consequence of having lesser area of absorption.
