Final Patient Enrolled In Large Data Registry of Incisionless Gastric Pouch and Stoma Reduction Procedure
Date:9/17/2008

LEXINGTON, Ky., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Bluegrass Bariatric Surgical Associates announced today that the final patient has been enrolled in a large, multi-institution registry designed to evaluate the results of an innovative Incisionless gastric pouch and stoma reduction procedure, known as ROSE (Revision Obesity Surgery, Endolumenal). The ROSE procedure reduces the size of a gastric bypass patient's stomach pouch and stoma to approximate the original post-gastric bypass proportions to help them back onto the path of weight loss.

Gastric bypass surgery offers a very effective means to lose weight. It is not, however, always a permanent fix. Up to 44 percent of patients who undergo gastric bypass begin to regain weight -- and the serious co-morbidities associated with it -- a few years after their initial operation.

Bluegrass Bariatrics surgeons G. Derek Weiss, MD, FACS, FASMBS and John Oldham, Jr., MD, FASMBS are participants in the 116-patient, nine-site registry. All the patients entered in the registry will be followed for two years.

"Traditionally, patients who regained weight after gastric bypass had few options to reverse that weight gain because their original surgery make an 'open' revision far too dangerous," said Dr. Weiss, who, along with Dr. Oldham, performed ROSE on 26 of the registry patients. "The ROSE procedure helps overcome the past safety issues of open surgery with very short recovery times and minimal side effects. Our first patient lost 25 pounds in the first month following ROSE. We look forward to following all of our patients to determine the long term results of the procedure which we believe has the potential to dramatically impact bariatric surgery."

To perform ROSE, surgeons use a small, flexible endoscope and a new EndoSurgical Operating System(TM) (EOS) developed by USGI Medical Inc. The EOS is inserted through the mouth and into the stomach pouch. The EOS tools are then used to grasp tissue and dep
