Apolo EndosurgeryIt is now possible to endoscopically repair gastric bypass interventions that with the passing of the years have failed as the stomach walls have dilated and the stomach has increased its size again. We should not forget that the bypass is a stomach reduction for the patient to face and fight obesity. Being able to “repair” and take the “bypass” to its previous condition without surgery but with endoscopic instrumental is a new option for those in this situation and feel that “they have done everything they could but even so they gained weight”. According to a report published* in the prestigious Bariatric Times, 30% of the patients treated with a gastric bypass start to gain weight two years after, while after 4 years 66% of the patients have increased their weight.
