Laparoscopic duodeno-jejunal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy (DJB-SG) has been introduced as a novel metabolic surgery from Asia recently. It provides benefits of avoiding the risk of remnant gastric cancer, minimization of malnutrition from duodenal switch. Here, we introduce the technique of single-loop anastomosis duodeno-jejunal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy (SADJB-SG) and compare with other gastric bypass surgeries. Fifty morbid obese patients underwent our novel procedure, laparoscopic SADJB-S from 2011 to 2013. Operative complication, weight loss, and diabetes remission were followed. All procedures were completed laparoscopically. The mean operative time was 181.7 ± 38.4 min, and the mean hospital stay was 3.8 days. Three minor early complications (6 %) were encountered but no major complication was noted. There was no significant difference in perioperative parameters between the SADJB-SG and gastric bypass except a longer operation time. The mean BMI decreased from 38.4 to 25.4 at 1 year after surgery with a mean weight loss of 32.7 % which is higher than gastric bypass. Laparoscopic SADJB-SG appears to be an ideal metabolic/bariatric surgery, whereas the efficacy is non-inferior to gastric bypass.
