Duodenal–jejunal bypass liner

Dr Daniel J Bell et al.

A duodenal–jejunal bypass liner (DJBL), also known as a duodenal–jejunal bypass sleeve device or EndoBarrier™ is being trialled as a new technique, as an alternative to more 'traditional' gastric bypass surgeries 1,2. The basic principle is that the sleeve is endoscopically-inserted into the duodenum with an impervious liner preventing absorption of the chyme by the duodenum or the proximal jejunum.
