Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding Versus Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

2014-08-27 03:40:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

- The investigators aim to determine the clinical and metabolic outcomes of two available bariatric restrictive procedures: laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAP-BAND) and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy for the treatment of morbid obesity (BMI > 35 with comorbidities or BMI > 40) in VETERANS.

- The investigators hypothesize that the short and long term outcomes between laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAP-BAND) and sleeve gastrectomy are similar in VETERANS.

Description

This is a bariatric surgery Phase 3 prospective trial.

First Case of Laparoscopic Mini-Gastric Bypass for the Treatment of Morbid Obesity in Severe Haemophilia A.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.

Surgical procedure in which the STOMACH is transected high on the body. The resulting small proximal gastric pouch is joined to any parts of the SMALL INTESTINE by an end-to-side SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS, depending on the amounts of intestinal surface being bypasses. This procedure is used frequently in the treatment of MORBID OBESITY by limiting the size of functional STOMACH, food intake, and food absorption.

A procedure consisting of the SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS of the proximal part of the JEJUNUM to the distal portion of the ILEUM, so as to bypass the nutrient-absorptive segment of the SMALL INTESTINE. Due to the severe malnutrition and life-threatening metabolic complications, this method is no longer used to treat MORBID OBESITY.

A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).

Surgical procedures aimed at producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.
