The OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System enables advanced endoscopic surgery by allowing to place full-thickness sutures through a flexible endoscope Olympus GIF-2T160.
With this new technology, is possible can provide secure approximation of gastric tissue endoscopically.
The OverStitch™ System is enabling a wide range of less invasive solutions for the patients.
The OverStitch™ System is an endoscopic technique that allows for sutures to avoid open surgery. Is the first method designed to perform continuous sutures through the special endoscopic channel, without surgery or incisions.
Is a minimally invasive process which, along with strict and safe medical control with high experience, a balanced diet under nutritional personalized control, the very important psychological treatment before and after (Triple Treatment), next to controlled exercise practice, provides a large weight loss in the initial stages and subsequent follow-up because improves the health of the obese patient, especially those with risks of Diabetes Type 2, Cardiovascular and Osteoarticular Pathology, Hepatic Steatosis (Fatty Liver), and a very important indication of this technique, repairs of the failures of traditional by-pass surgery, in which the patient has regained weight (Reganancia).
The OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System
Through a special endoscope that is introduced by the mouth, under general anaesthesia, sutures are performed on the stomach wall by reducing the capacity of the stomach, which goes a long way to get the feeling of satiety after eating food by achieving a slower passage of the food in the stomach to pylorus, causing a feeling of fullness and, as has been mentioned, delaying the onset of hunger.
