Caption: Illustration of a gastric bypass, surgical treatment of obesity. The aim of this surgery is to, on the one hand, reduce stomach capacity, and on the other to largely bypass intestinal digestion. The bolus is therefore reduced in volume and only partially digested. The principal of this method is restrictive and malabsorptive.
