Laparoscopic Duodenal Switch
The Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy with the Duodenal Switch procedure, sometimes known as the Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch, combines restriction (eating less because you feel full more quickly) with malabsorption of fat to give you a very powerful bariatric surgery procedure.
This was one of the more difficult surgeries that Touch Surgery has completed and one of the more difficult rigs that was been made by myself.
The flexibility required from all of the internal organs needed to be as close to real as possible, meaning a new automated 3D IK rigging system was written in Python by myself. The focus was on reducing flipping and crossing vectors causing flipping of the rigs. These were also built to be updated at a few clicks for geometry updates.
