Single-anastomosis duodenoileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy is a simplified 1-loop duodenal switch with a 200-250 common channel. Our objective was to analyze the weight loss and metabolic results of the technique on a series of 100 consecutively operated patients at a tertiary center university hospital.


A total of 100 patients consecutively underwent surgery. The criteria of inclusion were morbid obesity or metabolic disease. In the first 50 cases, the common/efferent limb measured 200 cm. The length was changed to 250 cm to reduce the hypoproteinemia rate.


No mortality and no severe complications developed. The mean excess weight loss was >95% maintained during the follow-up period. More than 90% of the patients experimented complete remission of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Two conversions to a standard duodenal switch with a longer alimentary channel were required because of recurrent hypoproteinemia. Hypertension was controlled in 98% of the patients, with a 58% remission rate. The mean number of bowel movements was 2.5/d.


Single-anastomosis duodenoileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy is a simplified duodenal switch procedure that is safe and quicker to perform and offers good results for the treatment of both morbid obesity and its metabolic complications.
