Abstract

A 40 + 5 cm jejunoileal bypass was created as a means of treating a case of morbid obesity. Clinical, functional and morphological examinations were carried out prior to surgery and at various times for the following year. An initially rapid loss of weight was followed by an early halt around the 7th month and a subsequently steady state. While metabolic and cardiorespiratory benefits were obtained, considerable and progressive hyperchlorhydria and lithiasic cholecystitis were noted, along with minor, reversible complications.
