A malabsorption syndrome that is associated with a blind loop in the upper SMALL INTESTINE that is characterized by the lack of peristaltic movement, stasis of INTESTINAL CONTENTS, and the overgrowth of bacteria. Such bacterial overgrowth interferes with bile salts action, fatty acids processing, microvilli integrity, and the absorption of nutrients such as VITAMIN B12 and folic acid.
