Gastric Sleeve

General Information

Overview

Sleeve gastrectomy: During sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon creates a small, tube-shaped stomach by removing the greater portion of the stomach through keyhole incisions.

Sleeve gastrectomy

The resulting pouch, about the shape and size of a banana, is larger than the pouch created during Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

By removing the outer aspect of the stomach, the majority of the cells that produce the hunger hormone ghrelin are removed and patients feel less hungry. During this procedure, a small stomach pouch or sleeve is created to decrease the amount of food it can hold. This surgery does not involve the small intestine in any way. The procedure, performed under general anesthesia, takes between one and two hours, with an expected hospital stay of two to three days. The average patient will lose 40 – 50 percent of their excess weight in the first two years after the procedure

Sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive procedure. It greatly reduces the size of the stomach and limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. It does not cause decreased absorption of nutrients or bypass the intestines. After this surgery, patients feel full after eating very small amounts of food. Sleeve gastrectomy may also cause a decrease in appetite. In addition to reducing the size of the stomach, the procedure reduces the amount of the “hunger hormone,” ghrelin, produced by the stomach The duration of this effect is not clear yet, but most patients have significantly decreased hunger after the operation.

The benefits of the gastric sleeve surgery

  •  A gastric sleeve surgery will dramatically reduce your calorie intake. You can eat normally but you will want much smaller portions during a meal. It can lead to dramatic weight loss in a relatively short period. In clinical studies, patients lost an average of 66% of their excess weight.
  • By weighing less, patients should also find it much easier to move around and carry out normal everyday activities.
  • As this surgery preserves the pylorus, the valve that regulates emptying of the stomach, it allows food to stay in the stomach for a while, making you feel full while the food trickles out.
  • There is no rearrangement of the bowel with a gastric sleeve surgery therefore dumping, which may occur to gastric bypass patients when their undigested stomach contents are “dumped” into their small intestine too quickly, should not a problem.
  • Also a sleeve gastrectomy doesn’t affect the absorption of food, so nutritional deficiencies are less likely to occur.
  • The part of your stomach that contains cells with an appetite prompting hormone, called ghrelin, has been removed during surgery, therefore, your hunger should be reduced in this procedure more than other weight loss surgical procedures such as gastric banding.
  • Losing weight after a gastric sleeve surgery can also improve many medical conditions you may have. Conditions that may improve are asthma, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnoea, high cholesterol, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

 Getting prepared for your sleeve gastrectomy

• When preparing for any weight loss surgery you have to be able to make a lifelong commitment to major changes in your diet and lifestyle.
• Always tell your bariatric nurse/surgeon what drugs, vitamins, herbs and other supplements you are taking. You may be asked to stop taking them before your surgery.
• Try to start on a healthy lifestyle in the weeks leading up to your operation. This is to get you used to a change in lifestyle and may result in a greater weight loss after surgery.
• Ensure that you have a ready supply of drinks, thin soups and purees for when you come out of hospital.
• Make sure that you have all the medications you will need after surgery in a liquid form if necessary.

 

Am I A Candidate for Gastric Sleeve Surgery?

  • Are between 18 and 60 years old.
  • Have seriously tried to lose weight with no success or only short-term success.
  • Are not candidates for gastric bypass due to certain risk factors.
  • Do not have any other health problems that may be causing excess weight gain.
  • Are ready to make substantial lifestyle modifications including changing their eating habits and cutting down on alcohol consumption.
  • you have health complications such as:
    • Diabetes
    • Cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or significant heart disease
    • Debilitating joint pain
    • Sleep apnea
    • Uncontrolled GERD or acid reflux
    • Pulmonary hypertension

Getting prepared for your surgery

• When preparing for any weight loss surgery you need to make a lifelong commitment to the dietary and lifestyle changes necessary for success.
• Tell your surgeon about any medications you are taking or plan to take throughout recovery. Vitamins, minerals and herbs interact with medications so don’t leave anything out.
• You will need to follow a pre-operation diet to prepare your body for surgery.
• Practice eating slowly, which includes chewing each morsel of food 15 times and putting the fork down between bites.
• You shall ideally quit smoking for at least a week before and after weight loss surgery. Smoking can increase the risk of complications, including potentially fatal blood clots. It can also affect the healing of the incisions and increase the risk of infection.
• Don’t drink alcohol for at least 48 hours before your weight loss surgery.
