Ileal transposition (IT) is a surgical procedure to investigate the role of the distal small intestine in metabolic improvements induced by bariatric/metabolic surgery, which has been applied to some human cases. We performed IT in diet-induced obese rats to investigate the effect of IT on glucose metabolism and β cell senescence.


Sprague-Dawley rats were fed high-fat diet (60% of total calories from fat) for 12 weeks and randomized into either IT or sham surgery. In the IT group, the distal ileal segment located between 5 and 15 cm proximal to the ileocecal valve was transposed 10 cm distal to the Treitz ligament isoperistaltically. In the sham surgery group, 3 corresponding transections of the intestine were made at the same locations as in IT and reattached in situ. β cell senescence was examined by the expression of two markers in vivo, p53BP1 and p16.


IT did not have a significant effect on body weight and insulin sensitivity, but postprandial insulin secretion was significantly increased. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and peptide YY secretion were also increased after IT. The histology of the transposed ileum showed distinct hypertrophy with increased GLP-1 positive enteroendocrine cells. Pancreatic β cell area was significantly increased in the IT group. The percentage of p16 or p53BP1 positive senescent β cells was significantly lower in the IT group versus the sham group.


IT improved glucose tolerance in diet-induced obese rats mainly through augmented insulin secretion. This improvement was associated with attenuated β cell senescence.
