Introduction: Mini-Gastric Bypass (MGB) originated in 1997 as a simple, rapid and mainly malabsorptive bariatric operation; it is now increasing rapidly. Methods: History, technique, variations and world literature are reviewed. Results: Reports now find the MGB to be a superior operation with respect to safety, short learning curve, resolution of co-morbidities (especially diabetes), durable weight loss and ease of revision or reversal. Conclusion: The authors regard MGB as a very favorable operation and present a review.
