sleeve gastrectomy


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.
Bariatric surgery in which most of the body and all of the gastric fundus is resected, leaving a minimalist sleeve

sleeve gastrectomy

A bariatric surgical treatment in which a large portion of the stomach is removed, leaving a 60–80-ml gastric tube. The greater curvature of the stomach is removed during the procedure. The small residual stomach tube prevents overeating by creating a feeling that the stomach is full after a small meal. (The operation may also affect serum levels of hormones like ghrelin, which influence hunger and satiety.) The operation is purely restrictive and does not produce malabsorption of nutrients. It is relatively easy to perform compared with other forms of bariatric surgery. Complications of the procedure include nausea, vomiting, and gastric leaks. Synonym: laparoscopic vertical gastrectomy

* Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch In this procedure, a sleeve gastrectomy is performed, and a larger section of the small intestine is bypassed than with Roux-en-Y.
Of the 150 patients, I died during the follow-up period leaving 149; 134 completed the 5-year follow-up; 8 patients in the IMT group and 1 patient in the sleeve gastrectomy group never initiated assigned treatment; an additional 6 patients were lost to follow-up.
Single anastomosis duodeno-ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy (SADI-S) (Figure 2d) is an operation in which a sleeve gastrectomy is followed by an end-to-side duodeno-ileal diversion at 250 cm proximal to the cecum.
Here, we investigated the influence of SG on MAFB expression, the regulation of FXR expression by MAFB, and also the downstream regulatory mechanisms, which provided novel insights into the mechanisms underlying the therapeutic effect of sleeve gastrectomy for obese patients with DM.
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is performed worldwide with increasing frequency in morbidly obese patients.1 Reasons to prefer LSG over other bariatric procedures is its easy technique which does not need anastomosis; preserving of the pylorus; avoidance of complications associated with malabsorptive operations such as dumping syndrome and diarrhea; and less need for trace elements and vitamin supplements.
With the guidance of the bougie, a bulldog clamp was placed on the stomach longitudinally, and sleeve gastrectomy was performed over the clamp.
The other patient was lost 2 days after stenting because of leak after sleeve gastrectomy. A medical approach followed by interventional radiological approaches was selected for treating the patient's leak.
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a standard surgical technique used in the treatment of morbid obesity.
* On average, patients lose 70-90 per cent of excess weight within a year after a gastric bypass, and 50-70 per cent of excess weight after a sleeve gastrectomy.
Only 82 of the 122 study participants underwent bariatric surgery: 77 had Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, and 5 had sleeve gastrectomy.
