Restrictive and minimally invasive weight loss surgery that involves placement of an adjustable band around the top part of the stomach in order to create a small stomach pouch that restricts the amount of food one can ingest before feeling full. A small opening between the newly created stomach pouch and rest of the stomach through which the food travels slowly leads to early satiety. The constriction of the band can be adjusted by inflating it with saline(salt solution) injected into it through a small port placed under the skin of the abdomen.
Q1. What does Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding Procedure (LAGB) involve?
A1. Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric band procedure involves placement of an adjustable band around the top part of the stomach which is connected to the food pipe or oesophagus. The constriction of the band can be adjusted by inflating it with saline(salt solution) injected into it through a small port placed under the skin of the abdomen.
This band creates a small stomach pouch and restricts the amount of food one can ingest before feeling full. Moreover, creates a small opening between the newly created stomach pouch and rest of the stomach through which the food travels slowly leading to early satiety. In order to prevent the band from slipping, a small part of the stomach is stitched around it on its both sides.
The surgeon access the surgical site through few key hole incisions in the abdomen and inserts the band through a special hollow tube called canula placed in your abdomen at the time of the surgery. Once reached the top part of the stomach where it is connected to the food pipe the bariatric surgeon passes the band around the stomach creating a small pouch which can hold only 1 to 2 ounces of food. Once in place, the surgeon will secure it firmly by locking it and stitching part of the stomach immediately below the band to the part of the stomach just above the band. This prevents slipping of the band.
Then, one end of the tube is pulled out through the hollow tube referred to as canula and connected to the injection port positioned under the skin.
This surgery does not modify the digestive process. Food ingested, passes through the digestive tract in a normal way. You need to visit the surgeon often to get the band adjusted.
