Long-limb or Distal Gastric Bypass for Superobesity - Randomized Study
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatments||long-limb gastric bypass, distal gastric bypass|
|Sponsor||University Hospital, Aker|
|Collaborator||The Hospital of Vestfold|
|Start date||February 2011|
|End date||May 2018|
|Trial size||115 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00821197, AT-0910-ST|
The main study objective:
To evaluate long-limb gastric bypass (150 cm alimentary limb) vs. "distal" gastric bypass (common channel 150 cm) in the treatment of superobesity (BMI 50-60 kg/m2).
The main study hypothesis:
Distal bypass accomplish an estimated 10-20 % larger weightloss than long-limb gastric bypass 1 year after surgery. Patients subject to distal bypass have more gastrointestinal side effects and more extensive nutritional deficiences compared to long-limb gastric bypass.
