What is Gastric Bypass Surgery or Roux-en Y Bypass?
Gastric bypass surgery refers to a surgical procedure in which the stomach is divided into small upperparts and a much larger lower parts and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both.
Gastric Bypass Surgery or Roux-en Y Bypass Surgery is an example of obesity surgery designed for obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 Kg/m2 or greater in cases of patients with certain comorbidity that are known to improve with weight loss, such as sleep apnea, diabetes, osteoarthritis, GERD, hypertension (high blood pressure), or metabolic syndrome, among others.
How does Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery work?
The gastric bypass pouch is usually formed from the part of the stomach which is least prone to stretching. The pouch (Smaller upper part) of the gastric bypass stretch maybe 15 mL in size, while a normal stomach can stretch up to over 1000 ml. That and its small original size prevents any significant long-term change in pouch volume.
The size of the connection between the stomach and the intestine changes with time, which has the effect of increasing the ability of the small intestine to absorb a larger volume of food.The function of the pouch increases with the passage of time. If this is the case, a weight loss has occurred. The increased capacity should allow a lower weight to be maintained.
