- Well-controlled studies are needed to support the current limited evidence on weight loss in the short term. They should document patient selection, all complications (while the device is in place and after its removal) and technical problems associated with placing and removing the device.
- Any explanatory notes
- Current evidence on the safety and efficacy of implantation of a duodenal–jejunal bypass sleeve (DJBS) for managing obesity is limited in quality and quantity. Therefore, this procedure should only be used in the context of research.
