How it works: the procedure involves five small incisions and takes about an hour. A small pouch of about 120cc in size is made in the stomach by using stapling devices. the remaining stomach is removed while the gastrointestinal tract is kept unaltered. A leak test is done before completing the operation. Thus, the stomach size is dramatically reduced. Results: no use of silicone implants, great appetite suppression, lower risk of ulcer, no dumping, no vitamin or drugs malabsoration. It does not impair patient’s dietary habits, better weight loss than gastric banding and no complications
Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass
How it works: this procedure involves creating a small stomach pouch, so less food is consumed. the intestine is connected to the pouch and rerouted. Food bypasses the lower stomach, the first segment of the small intestine (duodenum) and part of the second (jejunum).a direct connection is created from the stomach to the lower segment of the small intestine, literally bypassing portions of the digestive tract that absorb calories and nutrients. This is considered a combined restrictive and malabsorptive procedure. Results: on an average 77% of excess body weight is lost in one year after surgery. Studies show that after 10 to 14 years, patients have maintained 60% of excess body weight loss. Study of 500 patients showed that 96% of certain associated health conditions were improved or resolved, including back pain, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and depression. In most cases patients report an early sense of fullness, combined with a sense of satisfaction that reduces the desire to eat.
Mini Gastric Bypass
How it works: In the first part of mini gastric bypass surgery the stomach is divided and a small tube of stomach created with becomes the pouch. This is the restrictive part of the procedure and means that only a very small amount of food can be taken at any one time.
Next, the surgeon brings up a loop of bowel (about 200-300cm long) and joins this to the lower part of the stomach pouch.(the joining of bowel to bowel or stomach to bowel is called an “anastomosis”).this means that food passes from the small pouch into the small bowel where it meets the digestive juices which have moved downwards from the main part of the stomach. In effect therefore, about 2-3m of small bowel has been bypassed before absorption of mood (and calories) can take place. Fewer calories absorbed means weight loss.
The mini gastric bypass(MGBP) works both by restricting the amount of food that can be eaten at any one time, and by causing malabsorption and also by altering gut hormones involved in appetite control.
