What in the hell is the Roux Duodenal Switch.
Plus Cottam is involved, I suspect a badly slanted approach to justify all the SADI-S he’s done even when coding them as a DS.

I know. I loved that - Roux Duodenal Switch.

I didn’t know Cottam did that. :oops: That’s really upsetting

Hmmm … they call this data mining (I call it cherry picking):

Data were used for a retrospective matched cohort from 815 patients who underwent a primary laparoscopic traditional DS or primary laparoscopic SADI-S from September 2011 through November 2019 by four surgeons. Data were obtained by matching DS patients to SADI-S patients of the same age, sex and body mass index. In addition, only patients who were out at least five years and had a minimum five-year follow-up were included in the study. There were 30 patients in each group.

I’m not a data specialist but I do know data can be adjusted to fit the criteria you want to prove.
Agreed

I thought of one improvement

You could always double blind the study. Start with matched pairs, randomly assign each to one procedure or the other, then not tell either the assessor or the patient which procedure they received until the end of the study (5 years)

But,who would agree to that and who would pay?

I know this was how the US endobarrier trials were structured ( here it was either the procedure or a sham, no pairs, just matched cohorts), before the study was terminated early for hepatic infection in some who had the procedure. But, in this case, endobarrier was willing to pay in order to get access to the US market
