>ADJUSTABLE GASTRIC RING

Minimizer Regular

 

The MiniMizer Regular adjustable gastric band system with a variable 2-phase-closure is induced for weigth loss in obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 kg/m2 or more.

 

 

The design of the gastric band eases the laparoscopic placement around the stomach allowing the formation of a small gastric pouch and stoma. No resection or stapling of the stomach is required as well as no by-passing of stomach or intestines.

 

Two-stage fastening

1. phase: 31 mm inner diameter, band length 10.5 cm

2. phase: 26 mm inner diameter with a band length of 9.75 cm

 

The gastric band is made of silicon elastomer which has been chosen for its biocompatibility. The inner surface of the gastric band is inflatable. The silicon tubing is used to connect the inflatable section to the access port.
