ESG (Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty) is an innovative and non-invasive endoscopic technique that reduces the volume of the stomach by 70-80% of the size of a normal stomach. The concept of this procedure sought to mimic that of a surgical gastric sleeve in creating a tubular-shaped stomach. However, with ESG, instead of removing a portion of the stomach, it is pulled inward with sutures instead.
During the procedure, an endoscopic suturing device is attached to the end of the endoscope and inserted into the stomach. Then sutures are placed in the stomach to create a smaller, tubular configuration. The ESG leads to weight loss by the reduced capacity of food intake due to smaller stomach, early satiety, and delayed motility, so food sits in the stomach longer. Just as with surgical intervention, the patient works closely with a nutrition team to create healthy dietary habits and lifestyle changes.
