In gastric sleeve operation, eighty percent of the stomach is removed and that is the most common operation in the world. The operation is performed by the closed method called the laparoscopic method. After the stomach is taken at this rate, the remaining twenty percent is directly connected to the continuation of the duodenum as its natural extension.
In this way, theoretically, the volume of the stomach was reduced. In this way, the size of the stomach becomes smaller and the person continues to eat in the volume of his stomach. Since the stomach is small, meals are also small. The person who starts to eat less starts to lose weight with weight control as the capacity of eating decreases and the portions
In this method, both volume limiting and absorption disrupting mechanisms are used together. First, a gastric pouch with a volume of approximately 40-50 ml is created and the foods reaching the small stomach through some intestinal anastomoses bypass a certain intestine section and jump to a part of the intestine closer to the large intestine, and some of it is excreted without being absorbed. Of course, in this surgery, 90% of the stomach part is completely disabled as a blind stomach.
