One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass-Mini Gastric Bypass (OAGB-MGB) is rapidly gaining popularity and is currently being performed by an increasing number of bariatric surgeons worldwide. However, excessive postoperative weight loss and malnutrition still remain a major concern regarding this procedure. The aim of this observational retrospective study was to investigate whether a tailored biliopancreatic limb (BPL) length relative to small bowel length (SBL) is superior to a fixed BPL length of 200 cm in terms of weight loss results and nutritional deficiencies in morbidly obese patients 1 year following OAGB-MGB.

Abstract

One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass-Mini Gastric Bypass (OAGB-MGB) is rapidly gaining popularity and is currently being performed by an increasing number of bariatric surgeons worldwide. However, excessive postoperative weight loss and malnutrition still remain a major concern regarding this procedure. The aim of this observational retrospective study was to investigate whether a tailored biliopancreatic limb (BPL) length relative to small bowel length (SBL) is superior to a fixed BPL length of 200 cm in terms of weight loss results and nutritional deficiencies in morbidly obese patients 1 year following OAGB-MGB.
