Title (EN) TRANSESOPHAGEAL GASTRIC REDUCTION METHOD AND DEVICE FOR REDUCING THE SIZE OF A PREVIOUSLY FORMED GASTRIC REDUCTION POUCH
(FR) MÉTHODE TRANSŒSOPHAGIENNE DE RÉDUCTION GASTRIQUE ET APPAREIL POUR RÉDUIRE LA TAILLE D'UNE POCHE DE RÉDUCTION GASTRIQUE PRÉCÉDEMMENT FORMÉE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A gastric reduction pouch of a stomach is formed by gathering stomach tissue circumferentially from within the stomach to form a reduced diameter stomach section. A plurality of fasteners are deployed within the gathered stomach tissue to maintain the reduced diameter stomach portion. The gathering step may include folding the stomach tissue to produce a plurality of stomach tissue folds. A device is disclosed that is particularly adapted to permit such gastric reduction of a previously formed gastric reduction pouch..
(FR)L'invention concerne une poche de réduction gastrique d'un estomac formée par rassemblement circonférentiel du tissu gastrique de l'intérieur de l'estomac visant à former une partie d'estomac de diamètre réduit. Une pluralité d'agrafes est déployée dans le tissu gastrique rassemblé afin de maintenir la partie d'estomac de diamètre réduite. L'étape de rassemblement peut inclure le pliage du tissu de l'estomac visant à produire une pluralité de plis de tissu d'estomac. On décrit un appareil spécialement conçu pour permettre une telle réduction gastrique d'une poche de réduction gastrique précédemment formée.
