Preamble The International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders (IFSO) has played an integral role in educating both the metabolic surgical and the medical communities at large about the role of innovative and new surgical and or endoscopic interventions in treating adiposity-based chronic diseases. The single anastomosis duodenal-ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy/one anastomosis duodenal switch (SADI-S/OADS) is a relatively new procedure that has been proposed as an alternative to the conventional duodenal switch (DS) procedure. The IFSO published a position paper on SADI-S/OADS in 2018 with which concluded that this procedure was likely to be a safe and efficacious treatment for adiposity and its related diseases. However, it noted that there was insufficient long-term data and minimal high-level evidence available. The position statement called for patients to be enrolled in long-term multidisciplinary care encouraged the registration of patients in national registries, and called for more randomized controlled trials (RCT) (Obes Surg 28:1207–16, 2018) involving the procedure. The following position statement is an update of the previous position statement. It is issued by the IFSO SADI-S/OADS task force and has been reviewed and approved by both the IFSO Scientific Committee and Executive Board. This statement is based on current clinical knowledge, expert opinion, and published peer-reviewed scientific evidence. It will be reviewed again in 2 years.
