Biliopancreatic treatment is the removal of the different part of the stomach leaving the pylorus intact. The pylorus is the valve that controls the food drainage from the stomach. The biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch combines sleeve gastrectomy with a duodenal switch to achieve maximum weight loss. Super obese patient benefits the greatest from this procedure as it produces a higher mean excess weight loss. The weight loss procedure is a surgical technique to attain maximum benefit and minimal morbidity. Since the body does not absorb many nutrients, the patient is exposed to higher risk of health problems, and that is why the treatment is considered more complicated than Duodenal Switch Surgery.
Duodenal Switch (BPD – DS) is a surgical procedure that can be performed by mini-invasive surgery. The procedure affects the food intake in the body and reduces the absorption of nutrients from the intestinal tract. The absorption of the nutrients is reduced as a larger part of the intestines is bypassed and is no longer in use. The volume of the stomach after BPD - DS is somewhat between 150 and 250 ml - out of which only 75 cm and 100 cm long is the intestinal tract that is active. Duodenal Switch Surgery reduces the size of the stomach through surgical vertical stapling, and is the best option for people with metabolic disease processes such as Diabetes, PCOS, Hypertension, Hypertriglyceridemia and Cardiovascular Disease.
Gastric ballooning surgery is the process of creating a feeling of fullness in the abdomen by placing a blown off inflatable. The intra gastric swelling is done to insert a soft silicone balloon that is inserted in the abdominal for about six months to create a non-stop feeling of fullness. The treatment is considered as a weight loss option for obese people and is done by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or by re- routing the small intestines to a small stomach pouch. The success of the surgery depends a lot on the behaviour of the patient after the treatment. Obesity comes with a lot of problems like Diabetes, Hypertension and Sleep Apnoea; and if a healthy lifestyle is not followed the risk of such diseases increases for the patient. Thus, following a nutritional diet and a healthy lifestyle can contribute to the better recovery of the patient.
Gastric banding or “Lap Band’ is the procedure that involves placing an implant - a soft silicone ring -with an expandable balloon in the centre at the top part of the stomach. This creates a two compartment stomach with a very small part on the top of the band. The food passes through the small opening in the band and then reaches to the remaining part of the stomach. The lap band does not disturb the digestion and the digestion stays normal even after it.
This is a first stage procedure wherein patients who have very high body mass index (BMI) or severe heart or lung disease usually get relief from minor operations like the sleeve gastrectomy. Complications may occur if the patient has excessively large liver or extensive scar tissue to the intestines which make the gastric bypass impossible. In such cases, sleeve gastrectomy - a restrictive procedure – is followed, since it reduces the size of the stomach and limits your food intakes. During sleeve Gastrectomy, about 75% of the stomach is removed, leaving just a narrow tube (sleeve). The treatment is done by making five or six small incisions in the abdomen and is helpful for patients with severe heart or lung diseases.
