Sleeve Gastrectomy is a form of bariatric or weight-loss surgery that is aimed at decreasing the volume of the stomach to make the person consume less food than they normally do. It is one of the most popular bariatric surgeries worldwide due to its safety, effectiveness, and fewer complications. The aim of weight-loss surgeries is to reduce obesity-related comorbidities and improve the quality of life.
There are two ways a sleeve gastrectomy can be performed-conventional and banded.
The biggest complication of a conventional sleeve gastrectomy is dilatation of the gastric pouch over time. This results in inefficient weight loss or weight regain after the surgery. Other complications include infection, bleeding and leaks from the anastomotic site.
One of the major complications of banded sleeve gastrectomy is the risk of displacement or slipping of the ring or the banded device. Infection rarely occurs as a complication.
Compared to conventional or non-banded sleeve gastrectomy, the banded procedure takes more time to perform. However, the loss of weight is more significant, and it is kept off more effectively.
The banded sleeve gastrectomy has a higher regurgitation rate than the non-banded type.
Weight loss in the patient is secondary to the fact that the new stomach is much smaller and accommodates less food, so the patient eats less. The part of the stomach removed in this procedure is the site of secretion of the hunger hormone, Ghrelin. The patient, therefore, has a decreased appetite, which further contributes to weight loss.
