Mide Enjeksiyon Uygulaması

Gastric Injection

In the endoscopic method, the drug-toxin, which temporarily blocks the nerve conduction of the muscles, is injected into the stomach muscles at the appropriate dose. After the application, the movements of the stomach slow down and the digestion time of solid foods is prolonged. Effects such as early satiety, late hunger and loss of appetite help the patient to acquire healthy eating habits. The application alone does not cause weight loss, but it significantly increases the patient’s following the diet.
How is gastric injection applied?
Application is performed in the endoscopy unit. The procedure is performed under light anesthesia called sedation and is completely painless. After careful examination of the stomach surface endoscopically, drug is injected at 20 different points selected especially in the stomach exit and stomach entrance regions, where stomach muscles are mostly found. The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and does not require hospitalization. The efficiency of the process is fully seen in 7-10 days and continues for about 4-6 months.
What are the advantages of gastric injection?
