Long-term Follow-up of Jejunoileal Bypass Patients with Preoperative Cirrhosis of the Liver

Long-term Follow-up of Jejunoileal Bypass Patients with Preoperative Cirrhosis of the Liver

Obesity Surgery 4(1): 37-39

Though obesity, alcohol abuse and jejunoileostomy are often a dangerous combination, exceptions do exist. This paper reports on the long-term outcome of 12 patients who had hepatic cirrhosis prior to jejunoileostomy. The six patients who refrained from or significantly restricted alcohol intake following jejunoileostomy all survived a minimum of 2 years following surgery. Four of these patients, now 6 to 25 years post surgery, are still living as of August 1993.
