Clinical evaluation of the Endoscopic Duodenal-Jejunal Bypass Liner for management of type 2 diabetes and obesity

Global overweight has more than doubled. In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Overweight is almost always accompanied by additional comorbidities. Up to now, bariatric surgery (gastrointestinal surgery) has proven its effectiveness. There is great interest in new, safe, simple, non-surgical procedures for weight loss. The Duodenal-Jejunal Bypass Liner is such an endoscopic device. The DJBL consists of a 60 cm long impermeable fluoropolymer sleeve with a nitinol anchor, which is used to place the device reversibly on the wall of the duodenum. Once in place, the DJBL prevents contact between food and proximal jejunum. In this thesis we examined the effect of this endoscopic bariatric technique on overweight, type 2 diabetes and the management of complications. We can state that DJBL is an interesting endoscopic device, but there are still enough questions to be answered. There is enough room for further research.
