The author discusses the use of the duodenal-jejunal bypass sleeve technology to be used as a method of inducing weight loss especially in the case of obese patients with type 2 diabetes. Levels of excess weight loss are encouraging and suggest that the device may be useful in effectively inducing pre-operative weight loss; however, several complications were also encountered. The use of the EndoBarrier in reversing type II diabetes mellitus independently of weight loss needs further study.
