AbstractBackground: Duodenal switch (BPD/DS) is gaining popularity as a secondary procedure for inadequate weight loss after an initial operation. Objectives: We aimed to generate expert consensus points on the appropriate use of BPD/DS in the revisional bariatric surgical setting. Setting: Data were gathered at an international conference with attendees from a variety of different institutions and settings. Methods: Sixteen lines of questioning regarding revisional BPD/DS were presented to an expert panel of 29 bariatric surgeons. Current available literature was reviewed extensively for each topic and proposed to the panel before polling. Responses were collected and topics defined as achieving consensus (>= 70% agreement) or no consensus (<70% agreement). Results: Consensus was present in 10 of 16 lines of questioning, with several key points most prominent. Conclusions: As a second-stage procedure, BPD/DS is most appropriate after sleeve gastrectomy (SG) for the treatment of super morbid obesity (96.7% agree) or as a subsequent operation for a reliable patient with insufficient weight loss after SG (88.5%). In a patient with weight regain and reflux and/or enlarged fundus after SG, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is preferable and BPD/DS should be avoided (90%). BPD/DS should not be used prophylactically in patients with a history of jejunoileal bypass who are otherwise doing well (80.8%). Applicability of BPD/DS is limited by technical difficulty; 86.2% of experts would routinely recommend or consider the procedure if it were more technically feasible after failed bypass. No consensus was found on approaches to revision of BPD/DS for protein malnutrition. (C) 2019 American Society for Bariatric Surgery. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
