Sleeve Gastrectomy (tube stomach surgery) is a widely used restrictive surgery in obesity surgery.
With Sleeve Gastrectomy, patients who had Tube Stomach Surgery do not experience the problem of absorption of nutrients and therefore routine vitamin and mineral supplementation is not necessary.
In Tube Stomach Surgery, the large side of stomach is cut vertically by a laparoscopic method to form a new stomach in the shape of a tube with a volume of 150-200 cc.
Reduction of the stomach volume may lead to restriction of food intake, and the satiety caused by the removal of the part of the fundus that secretes Ghrelin Hormone, also known as the fasting hormone, leads to a decrease in appetite, which in turn contributes to weight loss.
After tube stomach surgery, 60-70% of excess weight is lost
Since it is a fook intake-limiting method, the effect may be reduced in those who eats liquid and high calorie foods.
The long-term weight gain rate is 10-20% and the rate of MORBID OBESITY is around 2%. In such cases, procedures such as Gastric Bypass or Duodenal Switch can be used.
