Study Design

Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
laparoscopic vertical gastroplasty
The Magenstrasse and Mill procedure is a conservative vertical gastroplasty described in 1987 through a laparotomy. A tubular gastric pouch is created by a vertical stapling extending from the antrum to the angle of Hiss. In this study, we evaluate the laparoscopic technique of the procedure.

Primary Outcomes

time frame: 1 month
Effect of the procedure on weight loss
time frame: 1 year

Secondary Outcomes

Reflux disease
time frame: 1 year
Effect of procedure on obesity associated co-morbidities
time frame: 1 year

Official title Laparoscopic Non Banded Vertical (Magenstrasse and Mill) Gastroplasty In Bariatric Surgery. Morbidity and Results on Weight Loss and Associated Co-morbidities
Principal investigator Arnaud De Roover, MD
Description The laparoscopy is performed under general anesthesia with a 5 ports access under 14mm Hg pressure. After opening of the gastrocolic ligament and division of any adhesions between stomach and pancreas a circular opening is performed at the junction of corpus and antrum of the stomach with a circular stapler. A tubular gastric pouch is then created along a calibration tube at the lesser curvature by a vertical stapling starting from the circular opening to the angle of Hiss.
