There are several laparoscopic, ie, minimally invasive techniques that apply today in general surgery for weight loss. These techniques, as well as being less invasive, achieved good results.
One is the mini gastric bypass, mini gastric bypass or gastric bypass of a single anastomosis (joining cellular anatomical elements).
Difference between the mini gastric bypass and conventional bypass
There are two differences mainly between the mini gastric bypass and conventional bypass.
The main one is that the gastric reservoir in this case is much longer. It is practically making a gastric tube with the difference that is cut, without giving continuity. At the foot of the gastric tube made a handle to gut up and spliced without sectioning, which no single anastomosis.
Also, the technique is based on malabsorption. To achieve comparable results to gastric bypass typically you have to do this "joint" above, to be too late mix food with biliary-pancreatic secretions, making further. This implies realize close Bahuin valve, whereby it is generated basically malabsorption.
Results obtained with the technique of mini gastric bypass
The results obtained by the groups that publish and perform this technique regularly are quite satisfactory.
Overall the results are quite flattering. There advocacy groups is equal technique effective in weight loss than the typical bypass with less risk because it requires only the preparation of an anastomosis and a splice.
