What is Gastric Plication?

It is an innovative, simple and safe technique. The aim is to apply the greater curvature of the stomach, in order to reduce its capacity by 80%. The stomach loses the ability to distension, avoiding excessive intake. When the stomach is full, the stitches betray from the outside, homogeneously, avoiding their progressive release as in the Apollo Method (Endoscopic Gastric Plication). Plication may fail due to repeated and voluntary abuse of the patient.
