How a Gastric Band can aid weight loss:
Gastric Restrictive Surgeries have evolved over the last decade to assist persons who are obese. The adjustable gastric banding system is designed to reduce food consumption and thus induce loss of weight.
The Gastric Band is an adjustable device which is placed around the upper stomach. On the inner surface of the Gastric Band device, there is an inflatable ring which can be inflated and deflated post-operatively. Above the band, a small gastric pouch is formed capable of holding only a small amount of food and below the band is the main part of the stomach. During a meal the food enters the small gastric pouch and them passes slowly through the channel formed by the Gastric Band into the main stomach - the speed of which is determined by the size of the channel and this is, in turn, dependant on the inflation of the adjustable Gastric Band ring.
