On April 21 2016, AIS Channel broadcast a live surgery in which Antonio Lacy, Ricard Corcelles and Maria Fernandez-Hevia from the Hospital Clínic in Barcelona used new tools to accomplish the ideal sleeve gastrectomy.
In this live surgery a new bougie with a light that improves exposure and guides dissection was introduced in the stomach. As a result of the evolution in stapling technology, modern cartridges provide enhanced management of thick tissues, combined with reinforced technology resulting in a correct, haemostatic stapler line. Then the gastric tube was tested using indocyanine green to assess vascularization, particularly in such a high-risk zone as the Angle of His.
This was a great procedure which will be soon posted in our Live Surgery section. Please subscribe to our newsletter to keep track of new website contents and future events.
