En el grupo (RI50) se realizaron los pasos descritos para el grupo (SHAM) y una vez expuestas las asas del intestino delgado se midio la distancia entre la flexura duodenoyeyunal (angulo de Treitz) y la papila ileal (valvula ileocecal).

(10,11) The jejunum is divided 25-50 cm distal to the ligament of Treitz, with the distal component brought up and anastomosed to the gastric remnant (the G-J anastomosis), creating the roux limb (also known as the efferent or alimentary limb).
In addition, a nasoduodenal decompression tube was placed in the descending part of the duodenum and a nasojejunal feeding tube was placed at least 10 cm beyond the ligament of Treitz [Figure 1]c].
The jejunum was staple transected 10 cm distal to the ligament of Treitz with an Endo GIA[R] stapling device and mobilised under the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) to the right side.
Localization of the SMA below its normal position, presence of malrotation in the duodenum, short Treitz ligament, cancer leading to rapid weight loss, burns, previous surgical operation or psychiatric disorder and associated loss of mesenteric adipose tissue, aneroxia nervosa or presence of scoliosis may be involved in the etiology of this rare syndrome (3, 4).
