By the term "biliopancreatic diversion" is meant that the digestive secretions of bile (bilis) and pancreas (pancreas) are fed to the diet porridge only in the lower part of the small intestine. As a result, the breakdown of nutrients is hindered and they are absorbed only in significantly smaller amount from the small intestine into the blood.
Biliopancreatic diversion usually leads to a particularly significant weight reduction in patients with obesity. Internationally, biliopancreatic division is the standard procedure, but has barely gained acceptance in Germany.
The principle of action is based primarily on malabsorption intentionally caused by the operation - the technical term for poor uptake of nutrients from the intestine. Normally, in the duodenum, the chyme that is coming from the stomach mixes with the digestive enzymes from the pancreas and gallbladder. The nutrients are thereby split and can now be absorbed by the intestinal mucosa and passed into the bloodstream.
However, biliopancreatic diversion first introduces them much further down the small intestine. Only from here mix so food porridge and digestive juices. Thus, only a short section of the intestine and much less time are available for the breakdown and absorption of food - a large part of the nutrients migrates undigested in the large intestine and is excreted in the stool.
However, the weight reduction does not just result from malabsorption alone. The second principle of action is the so-called restriction: In biliopancreatic division, among other things, the stomach is significantly reduced. Due to the reduced stomach volume (restriction) one is much faster fed and therefore eats less.
