Abstract

Patients who have had ileogastrostomy for the treatment of morbid obesity require close, long-term follow-up. From a prospective study of a large number of variables in 12 consecutive patients, and from experience with more than 200 patients who have undergone this procedure since 1982, a protocol has evolved. The authors outline the associated morbid conditions, operative complications and biochemical alterations that are important in the management of these patients.
