Abstract

Bariatric surgery is the most effective intervention for severe obesity, which is one of the most serious health problems. Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is one of the principal techniques. Nonetheless, major complications are frequent, and weight-loss is not always successful. Non-optimal intervention design and general anesthesia are the principal cause of this situation. A novel approach is required, integrating bioengineering and medical competences, aiming to engineering design the procedure, to improve efficacy and safety. Preliminary outcomes have been reported from activities that are under development in the research field of stomach mechanics and bariatric surgery. The results pointed out the potentiality of computational methods for the investigation of stomach functionality and the planning of bariatric surgery procedures and techniques.
