Historical perspectives of bariatric surgery: the jejunoileal bypass and vertical banded gastroplasty

  • Stephen W. TrenknerEmail author


While neither the jejunoileal bypass nor vertical banded gastroplasty are still performed, many patients still possess this anatomy. They periodically have imaging procedures that need to be performed and interpreted appropriately. It is also important to know what has failed in the past to proceed more intelligently in the future.
