|biliopancreatic diversion||medical dictionary|
A surgical procedure which diverts pancreatobiliary secretions via the duodenum and the jejunum into the colon, the remaining small intestine being anastomosed to the stomach after antrectomy. The procedure produces less diarrhoea than does jejunoileal bypass.
