|Abstract:||OBJECTIVE: Complications of bleeding, liver abscess and movement have been associated with previous duodeno-jejunal bypass liner (DJBL) applications in the past. A new anchoring system and design of a DJBL is presented as a pilot study. METHOD: A newly designed DJBL device was inserted in 2 pigs and observed over 2 months. RESULTS: The newly designed device was anchored and monitored for 1 month in 1 of 2 pigs, the other being passed early. Effectiveness and safety have been shown. CONCLUSION: The results of this pilot study warrant further investigation of the modified DJBL setup, which may help solve standing issues associated with the clinical use of a DJB liner.|
