Recommended Conferences for Adjustable gastric banding

Adjustable gastric banding

Adjustable gastric banding surgery, generally called is a "restrictive" operation. This limits the food intake and do not involve with the normal digestive process. In this method, a silicone band is placed around the upper end of the stomach, creating a small stomach bag. The remaining part of the stomach stays below the band. The two parts of the stomach are connected by a small hole created by the band. The band stops the amount of food one can have at a single moment. Food can pass from the upper to the lower part of the stomach, but it passes through the new opening slowly, so that it will make the person feel full longer times. The method is done laparoscopic ally, by making sutures. About five small skin sutures are done on the stomach. The key aspect of the gastric band is that it can be adjusted after surgery. As the person loses weight, he may feel hungrier and start eating more. That means the band must be readjusted. The inner part of the band is framed with a balloon that can be induced with saline allowing the surgeon to narrow or widen the suture and thus control how much food go through into the lower part of the stomach .This is done by using a fine needle to gain access to a small bag that is fixed well under the skin and fat at the time of surgery. The bag is connected by a thin tube to the saline bag. The reservoir is not visible; it can be felt only when the person makes a push on his abdomen. Laparoscopic ally placed around the upper end of the stomach, the band divides the stomach into a small upper bag above the band and a bigger bag below the band. This small pouch restricts the amount of food that a patient can eat at any one time, and would result in a feeling of fullness after eating a small amount of food.
Regulating the size of the opening between the two parts of the stomach regulates the food passes from the upper to the lower end of the stomach. This hole between the two parts of the stomach can be decreased and increased, by injecting and removing saline from the band. The band is connected by a tube to a reservoir which is placed beneath the skin during the surgery. The surgeon can later control the amount of saline in the band by making an aperture to the reservoir through the skin with a fine needle. The ability to adjust the band is only seen in gastric banding. Because the band is removable and does not permanently alter the anatomy, it will give the patient an option for who will not consider surgery for treatment of their obesity. Some more advantages include a shorter hospital stay and does not show effects on the absorption of nutrients.
 Gastric banding is the finest method of bariatric surgery, with a very less recovery time.
 On an Average weight loss is generally 50 percent of extra body weight which can be maintained for 15 years. This equals roughly 50 to 100 lbs. and this would depend on patient’s actual weight.
 It is the less invasive operation of all the weight loss surgeries performed. As there is no cutting of stomach and intestines, there is no risk of dumping syndrome
 For patients who are done with this gastric band feels less hungry because a less amount of food expands the uppermost part of the stomach, giving a sense of full stomach.
 There is less chances of malabsorption for medication, which means that you absorb every nutrient that you have. This is important in young women who want to get pregnant. Even though gastric band patients do not need any vitamin or mineral supplements, it is recommended a multivitamin once a day.
 The majority of obesity related health issues are gone better or even cured such as diabetes, sleep apnea, and high cholesterol.
 Since the band is an implanted one, its effect can be surely reversed by taking it out.
 The surgery takes nearly one hour to perform and is usually performed as an outpatient. Patients can go back to work in less than five days.
 One must learn how to eat. Therefore, if you eat too fast or too much, or if you don't chew your food enough, you will vomit. Some foods such as steak, white meat chicken, and doughy bread cannot pass through the slit.
 The chances of losing an amount of weight after the gastric band are up to 70 percent. The success depends on his commitment to keeping follow up visits to his surgeon for every four to six weeks for at least the first year and longer, to have the band adjusted. Band adjustments are made in response to the amount of weight lost, appetite, portions, eating habits. This is the finest way to assure long term weight loss.
 Pills taken afterwards should be small as larger pills may not go through the band and may dissolve in esophagus and could cause ulcers. It is advised to change all medications to a liquid, powdered.
 Because the gastric band is an implanted device, it does carry a small risk of slippage. In that case, another laparoscopic surgery would be required to reposition or to remove the band.
 The gastric band will not be a good solution, and it will not result in weight loss if you start eating an excess amount of high-calorie drinks such as ice cream, milk shakes and soda.
 Other technical issues may arise. The tube may twist which may requires another minor surgery. The device may get a leak which will lead to weight gain.

OMICS Group is conducting a conference Global Summit & Medicare Expo on Surgical Weight Loss during July 20-22, 2015 at Brisbane, Australia. The theme of the conference is based on “Scientific perspectives for better fitness and to pioneer innovations in Surgical Obesity treatment”.
OMICS Group was founded in the year 2007 with the point of making the research on Sciences and engineering Open Access. OMICS Group likewise composes 300 International events every year around the globe, where exchange of researches and ideas happens through level headed discussions, round table discourses, publication presentations, workshops, symposia and exhibitions. OMICS International sorts out Science Congress, World Summits, and International science meetings in USA, Australia, India, Dubai, and Europe. OMICS Group Journals energizes unique and good research articles for publication. All the articles sorted for publications are subjected to a peer review. After consolidating the progressions the articles are given to publication. Once sanction for publication, these articles stay chronicled for all time in their separate archives. OMICS Group Journals will follow tracking system where the authors can track its status now and again.
