Abstract

Purpose of review: Duodenal–jejunal bypass liners (DJBLs) are a novel therapy with potential treating a range of metabolic diseases. This review discusses the weight loss and glycaemic improvements observed following the use of the DJBL.

Recent findings: We summarize the evidence for the clinical application of DJBL to date. Within this, we outline the evidence available on the mechanisms of the observed effects.

Summary: Based on the most recent trials, we cannot fully mimic the clinical or physiological effects of bariatric surgery with this device, but we are getting closer.
