Mini Gastric By-Pass

Mini Gastrik By-PassIt is a modification of gastric by-pass which can be practiced more easily. After a long gastric pouch is created, the cranial 2-m segment of small intestine is connected to the gastric pouch. Even though surgery time is shorter and the method is less expensive, it is very effective in managing type 2 diabetes and achieving weight loss. Therefore, it is increasingly getting popular. The most important disadvantage is the risk of cancer in the remaining part of the stomach, since endoscopic follow-up is not possible.
