6436 CONSECUTIVE MINI-GASTRIC BYPASSES: 16 YEARS LATER Robert RUTLEDGE11Director, Surgery, Center For Laparoscopic Obesity Surgery, United States of America
Introduction• Presented at the First International Consensus Conference on the• Mini-Bypass /• One Anastomosis Bypass• (MGB)• Paris Oct 2012.
Introduction• In spite of initial skepticism;• There is growing evidence that MGB is a• Safe and effective procedure with• Many of the features of an ideal bariatric surgery.
Methods:• Review of 6,436 MGBs 1997 to 2013• First International Consensus Conference on the Mini-Bypass / One Anastomosis Bypass, Paris 2012 October 18-19.
Results• Mean preop weight (+/- Standard Deviation) was 151 +/- 31 kg, BMI 46 +/- 7. &• 79% were female. Mean operative time was 43 + 11 minutes and median length of stay was 1 day.• Three deaths occurred within 30 days of surgery, (0.05%).• None in the last 10 years.
Results• Early complications occurred in 4.9%.• 44 (0.7%) patients had anastomotic leaks.• Three (0.05%) patients presented with dypepsia/bile reflux not responsive to medical therapy and were successfully treated by Braun side-to-side jejuno- jejunostomy• Gastritis/dyspepsia/marginal ulcer was the most serious long term complication; routinely treated medically (4.9%).
Results• Excessive weight loss occurred in 1% of patients; treated by take down of the bypass.• Mean % excess weight loss (EWL) of 78%.• 10 year weight regain 4.9%.• >50% EWL was achieved for 95% of patients at 18 months and for 92% at 60 months.• 6% of patient had inadequate weight loss or significant weight regain were treated by revision, (addition of ~2 meters to the bypass).

MINI-GASTRIC BYPASSBASED SOUND SURGICAL PRACTICE• Billroth II Performed over 100 years• 16,000 Billroth II’s USA in 2007• Operation of choice: Trauma, Ulcers, Cancer Stomach etc.
Conclusions:• This study confirms reports presented first over 10 years ago and now supported by dozens of other surgeons from 29 countries from around the world,• MGB is an short, simple, effective, low- risk, and durable bariatric procedure.• In addition, it can be easily revised, converted, or reversed.
