Malabsorption plays a major role in the effects of the biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch on energy metabolism in rats.

BACKGROUND The mechanisms underlying the metabolic benefits of the biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD/DS) have not been clarified. The objective of this study was to investigate the metabolic roles of sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and duodenal switch (DS) as main surgical components of BPD/DS. METHODS BPD/DS, SG, and DS surgeries were performed… CONTINUE READING
