A1. Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy or Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve surgery is one of the most popular weight loss surgeries that involves removal of nearly 80 % of the stomach leaving behind a tube shaped part of the stomach, also referred to as sleeve.
This surgery works on the following principles:
• It is a restrictive surgery which means the stomach is reduced to a very small size restricting the amount of food it can hold and thereby reducing the food intake and hence the calories.
• The major part of the stomach which is excised during the surgery, had been responsible for the secretion of a hormone called “Ghrelin” that causes hunger pangs. In the absence of Ghrelin, the person does not experience hunger pangs and it also leads to early satiety.
A2 Both surgeries, as per the studies, have shown to be comparable in effectiveness whether it is speedy and considerable amount of weight loss, its maintenance, the improvement in the associated co morbid conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes.
