Abstract: Background: Bariatric surgery, and particularly the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGBP) procedure, has highlighted the central role of the gastrointestinal tract in the regulation of body weight and metabolism. The Roux-limb is the part of the small intestine that has become the food recipient after RYGBP and has generally been very little studied. The thesis explores mucosal adaptation and muscular activity of this intestinal segment after RYGBP. As there is an increasing awareness of post-surgica... more
