What are Bariatric Devices?
Bariatric science is the related to the treatment of people having extreme obesity and methods for its prevention. This is done by performing a surgery on the stomach or intestines of the patient to help him lose and control weight. Bariatric surgery is an option for people who have a body mass index (BMI) more than normal usually above 40. They are of two basic types’ i.e. restrictive surgeries and mal-absorptive or restrictive surgeries. Restrictive surgeries work by physically restricting the size of the stomach and slowing down digestion. Mal-absorptive/restrictive surgeries involves physical removal of parts of the digestive path using bariatric instruments, in addition to restriction of the stomach size, the surgery interferes with absorption of calories.
There are various instruments and device which surgeons have to take into use while performing these highly sophisticated operations those are called Bariatric Devices. They include various types of equipment such as knives, synthetic bands that are used, needles, etc. which all are used for treatment in Bariatric surgeries.
Market Research and Market Trends of Bariatric Devices Ecosystem
Gastric bypass uses a technique that combines both restrictive and mal absorptive approaches. The proximal portion of the stomach is used to create an egg-sized pouch that is connected to the intestine in a location that bypasses about 2 feet of normal intestine. The food intake capacity is limited by the size of the pouch and the size of the opening between the pouch and the intestine. In U.S. markets, it is the most popular and consists about 80% of all weight loss surgeries.
The Transoral Gastroplasty (TOGA) is a latest technique which has led to significant improvement in minimally-invasive bariatric surgery. Instead of making incisions in the abdominal wall, it offers incision-less option by combining two flexible endoscopic staplers passed through the mouth that are used to create a small restrictive pouch in the stomach.
Several noninvasive procedures and devices are under development which offer alternative solutions for patients who are hesitant to pursue standard surgical approaches. These procedures may be used for primary treatment of obesity, early intervention for patients approaching morbid obesity, temporary management prior to bariatric surgery, or revision of bypass surgery associated with weight regain.
More than 225,000 Americans who are 100 pounds overweight and unable to lose weight through improvement or changes in their dieting habits and hence are expected to undergo bariatric surgery. It has been observed that the people undergoing bariatric procedure are able to lose more than 60% of their excess weight. A majority experience resolution of their diabetes and high blood pressure and a reduction in their cholesterol. This indicates strong demand for bariatric devices in near future.
