Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is the reduction of the stomach without incision by entering through the mouth with the help of an endoscope. In this endoscopic method, a special suture apparatus is attached to the end of the endoscopic device and special endoscopic sutures are put into the stomach and the stomach is reduced. As in the laparoscopic method, a sleeve gastrectomy is performed, but in this procedure, the excess part of the stomach is not cut out. Instead, the stomach is folded and stitched.

Since endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is performed without incision, the risk of complications is low and patients can easily return to their daily lives.

To Whom Can Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty Be Applied?

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty can be performed in patients with a body mass index above 35 or in patients with additional diseases such as diabetes and hypertension with a body mass index above 30, and in obesity patients who cannot lose weight with diet and lifestyle changes. However, it is important to evaluate personalized surgical techniques in morbid obesity patients with a body mass index as high as 40-45.
