Six-month Study to Compare the Effects of Volume- and Pressure-Guided Adjustments on Weight Loss and Satiety

2014-08-27 03:19:57 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A banded patient's desirable rate of weight loss (0.5 to 1.0 Kg/week), in the absence of complications (the "right fit"), corresponds to an individual (personal) level of intraband pressure (IBP). Therefore, Swedish Adjustable Gastric Band (SAGB) patients adjusted to an IBP that corresponds to a personal "right fit" will experience improved weight loss and sustained satiety, in comparison to conventional (volumetric-based) adjustments.

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.

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.

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.

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.
