Vertical-joined gastroplasty (VBG) was one of the most wellknown prohibitive bariatric strategies during the 1980s and 1990s, with phenomenal short-and medium-term results. Bricklayer portrayed the open VBG (OVBG) without precedent for 1982, comprising of the use of staples from over the gastric crow's foot up to the point of His to make a little pocket (<50 mL), along with the development of a neopylorus with a polypropylene network collar. The method was altered and performed laparoscopically (laparoscopic vertical-grouped gastroplasty).

Regardless of palatable beginning results, issues bit by bit began to show up, essentially with the OVBG. Countless patients had either gastric outlet obstacle unfriendly occasions or weight recapture in light of staple-line dehiscence (gastrogastric fistula) and ensuing gastric pocket growth. This happened in up to 65% of patients in the long haul.

Generally, weight recover after VBG is treated with careful change to Roux-en-Y gastric detour (RYGB). This transformation might be very difficult and tedious (~200 minutes) and has been related with higher early dismalness (anastomotic spillage, intrastomach sore, interior hernia, wound boil and disease, urinary plot contamination, pneumonia) and long haul dreariness (anastomotic stenosis and incisional hernia; up to 39%) than essential RYGB. In any case, as far as anyone is concerned, there has been no distributed report of endoscopic treatment for weight recapture after VBG.

we show the wellbeing, specialized attainability, and viability of another endoscopic method to treat weight recover after OVBG utilizing an endoscopic stitching gadget.

Our patient was a 51-year-elderly person with a background marked by OVBG in 2004 who gave weight recapture. Her pre- OVBG weight was 98 kg, with a postsurgical nadir weight of 58 kg. Her weight at show was 103.3 kg, addressing a recapture of 78.1% of her maximal weight reduction and a weight record of 40.1 kg/m2. She was follower to way of life intercessions lastly attempted a low-carb diet without getting more fit. The patient would not go through transformation of VBG to RYGB; accordingly, she was alluded to the bariatric endoscopy facility. Analytic endoscopy uncovered an enlarged gastric pocket with staple-line dehiscence.

The endoscopic stitching framework depicted in this video comprises of Overstitch Sx (Apollo Endosurgery, Austin, Tex, USA), an over-the-scope single-channel stitching gadget with a catheter-type tissue screw or tissue helix to guarantee successive full-thickness nibbles. This gadget has been utilized for essential endoscopic bariatric treatment, amendment of RYGB, and endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty however as far as anyone is concerned has not yet been accounted for update of VBG.

The system depicted in this video is described as a stitching technique along the staple-line disturbance with an emphasis on reproducing the first gastric pocket. Initial, a full-thickness nibble is taken in the retroflexed situation on the lingering more noteworthy shape of the proximal body, only 3 cm underneath the G-E intersection, along 1 of the 2 boundaries of the proximal staple-line dehiscence; then, at that point, a subsequent chomp is taken on the contrary side of the staple-line dehiscence only 1 cm beneath the past one. Thusly, a running stitch is performed following a hierarchical "Z" design putting 5 lines lastly moving toward the contrary sides of the staple-line interruption with a stitch snap. A second distal stitch with 2 full-thickness nibbles following the past design is performed to support the primary stitch and further diminish the lingering gastric pocket.
