Stomach is not removed in this surgery. So there is ‘at risk gastric remnant’. If you develop ulcer or cancer in remnant stomach, it is not possible to monitor by upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. It is not possible to access common bile duct (pipe below liver) by endoscopy. Since duodenum (1st part of intestine) is bypassed, risk of calcium and iron deficiencies is high. Since pylorus (valve below stomach controlling food output) is bypassed, risk of dumping syndrome (dumping of nutrients into intestine leading to fluctuations in blood glucose) is high. Since it is a loop anastomosis ( attachment between gastric pouch and jejunum), there is risk of bile reflux into gastric pouch. Long term consequences of this bile reflux are unknown. Risk of weight regain and diabetes recurrence are less than that after gastric sleeve or roux en y gastric bypass surgery. If anyone develops weight regain or diabetes recurrence after MGB – OAGB, they may need revision bariatric/ metabolic surgery to induce further hormonal changes necessary for weight loss and diabetes remission. Most of the limitations of MGB-OAGB are addressed by combining sleeve with loop bypass (Sleeve + Bypass).
