Bariatric Arterial Embolization for Morbid Obesity

2016-05-31 15:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of left gastric artery embolization(bariatric arterial embolization) for morbid obesity. When the target vessel is blocked, some of the body's signals for feeling hungry will be suppressed and lead to weight loss.

Although there are many ways to treat morbid obesity, surgery is currently the only effective method to be confirmed. But surgical treatment is likely to carry a high risk of treatment-related complications, such as fistula or intestinal obstruction, etc. This study is designed to help treat obesity using a method of transvascular interventional therapy, which is minimally invasive and non-surgical.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.

The arterial trunk that arises from the abdominal aorta and after a short course divides into the left gastric, common hepatic and splenic arteries.

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.

Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.

An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.
