Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass in Pakistan

The Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB), also known as the One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass (OAGB), is a relatively simpler weight loss procedure. It involves two main steps: making a gastric pouch by dividing the stomach and connecting the gastric pouch to the small intestine using a new surgical connection. This procedure bypasses a significant portion of the stomach and about a quarter to one-third of the small intestine. This means that they no longer play a role in the digestion or absorption of the food you eat. Compared to the RYGB or Roux-Y Gastric Bypass procedure, the. Mini Gastric Bypass has a single connection compared to the two connections in an RYGB making the procedure quicker and easier to perform.

The one common connection for acid and food may expose the smaller gastric pouch to the gastric acid and liver bile that may lead to gastric pouch inflammation and sores at the connecting margin called marginal ulcers. However, the goals for both surgeries are the same, and they show similar results in terms of weight loss and recovery.

Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass Procedure

This procedure combines aspects of both restrictive and malabsorptive surgeries. It is performed using minimally invasive techniques, which offer several advantages over traditional open surgery. During the procedure, small incisions, typically ranging from 0.5 to 1.5 centimeters in size, are made in the abdomen. Specialized instruments called trocars are then inserted through these incisions.

The first step involves dividing the stomach to create a gastric pouch, but no part of the stomach is removed. This smaller stomach restricts the amount of food that can be consumed, leading to early satiety.

This smaller stomach restricts the amount of food that can be consumed, leading to early satiety. The gastric pouch in MGB is slightly longer than an RYGB pouch to help reduce the reflux of gastric acid into the pouch.

From the end of this pouch, a measurement of approximately 150 centimeters is taken along the small intestine, in a downstream direction. At this measured point, the surgeon performs the anastomosis, connecting the gastric pouch to the small intestine. By bypassing a segment of the small intestine, the procedure reduces the surface area available for nutrient absorption, contributing to weight loss. Once all connections are secured and free of leaks, the incisions are closed using sutures or surgical staples. Following the procedure, patients typically stay in the hospital for a night or two for monitoring.
