Derivación biliopancreática (BPD)

Las operaciones para tratar la absorción insuficiente, como la derivación biliopancreática (DBP), restringen tanto la ingesta de alimentos como la cantidad de calorías y nutrientes que el cuerpo absorbe.

En un procedimiento de derivación biliopancreática, se extirpan porciones del estómago y la pequeña bolsa remanente se conecta directamente al segmento final del intestino delgado, evitando completamente el paso a través de la parte superior de los intestinos. Allí permanece un canal común en el cual se mezclan la bilis y los jugos digestivos pancreáticos antes de entrar al colon. La pérdida de peso se presenta debido a que la mayoría de las calorías y nutrientes son dirigidos al colon donde no son absorbidos.
