The commonest bariatric procedure worldwide is the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, which was designed to combine a reduction in stomach volume and shorten the small intestine to produce a combination of a restrictive and malabsorptive state. Although it is now known that calorie malabsorption does not occur, the effects of bypass procedures do not correlate with the reduction in stomach volume either. The mechanism of weight loss appears partly due to profound loss of appetite in association with increased satiety gut hormone concentrations
