Background: Less invasive and complex procedures have been developed to treat obesity. The successful use of Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty using OverStitch(r) (Apollo Endosurgery, Austin, Texas, USA) has been reported in the literature. Aim: Present technical details of the procedure and its surgical/ endoscopic preliminary outcome. Method: The device was used to perform plications along the greater curvature of the stomach, creating a tubulization similar to a sleeve gastrectomy...

Background and study aims: Gastric reflux into the remnant esophagus after subtotal or partial esophagectomy is associated with impairment in patient quality of life. We evaluated the feasibility, safety, and potential effectiveness of a novel procedure using a new endoscopic suturing device to create an anti-reflux valve (funnel) in pigs after esophagectomy with gastric tube reconstruction. Methods: The endoscopic procedure was performed in four pigs using a semi-full-thickness endoscopic suturing system (OverStitch; Apollo Endosurgery, Austin, Texas, USA)...

Dumping syndrome is a long-term postoperative complication of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedures. Morphologically, dumping syndrome usually correlates with a dilatation of the gastroenterostomy with accelerated pouch emptying. Conservative therapy includes diet changes, complementary pharmacotherapy and, if symptoms persist, surgical revision. Surgical options include endoscopic, endoluminal surgery to constrict the gastrojejunostomy using a novel endoscopic suturing device (OverStitch(TM), Apollo). In our study, we aimed to assess the viability, safety and efficacy of this procedure in patients with late dumping; 14 patients who had developed late dumping syndrome underwent surgery using an endoscopic suturing technique (OverStitch(TM), Apollo)...

Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) has emerged as one of the most exciting areas in the field of minimally invasive surgery during the last decade. NOTES comprises a wide spectrum of procedures from various natural accesses such as transgastric or transvaginal routes, and different direct-target or distant-target organs. Since polypectomy was first performed in 1955, major advances in technology and refinement of endoscopic technique have allowed endoscopic surgeons to perform complex endoscopic interventions such as endoscopic submucosal dissection...

A new paradigm in the treatment of obesity and metabolic disease is developing. The global obesity epidemic continues to expand despite the availability of diet and lifestyle counseling, pharmacologic therapy, and weight loss surgery. Endoscopic procedures have the potential to bridge the gap between medical therapy and surgery. Current primary endoscopic bariatric therapies can be classified as restrictive, bypass, space-occupying, or aspiration therapy. Restrictive procedures include the USGI Primary Obesity Surgery Endolumenal procedure, endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty using Apollo OverStitch, TransOral GAstroplasty, gastric volume reduction using the ACE stapler, and insertion of the TERIS restrictive device...

Endoscopic suturing had previously been considered an experimental procedure only performed in a few centers and often by surgeons. Now, however, endoscopic suturing has evolved sufficiently to be easily implemented during procedures and is more commonly used by gastroenterologists. We have employed the Apollo OverStitch suturing device in a variety of ways including closure of perforations, closure of full thickness defects in the gastrointestinal wall created during endoscopic full thickness resection, closure of mucosotomies during peroral endoscopic myotomy, stent fixation, fistula closure, post endoscopic submucosal dissection, endoscopic mucosal resection and Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery defect closures, post-bariatric surgery gastrojejunal anastomosis revision and primary sleeve gastroplasty...

GOALS: To describe a multicenter experience using an endoscopic suturing device for management of gastrointestinal (GI) defects and stent anchorage. BACKGROUND: Endoscopic closure of GI defects including perforations, fistulas, and anastomotic leaks as well as stent anchorage has improved with technological advances. An endoscopic suturing device (OverStitch; Apollo Endosurgery Inc.) has been used. STUDY: Retrospective study of consecutive patients who underwent endoscopic suturing for management of GI defects and/or stent anchorage were enrolled between March 2012 and January 2014 at multiple academic medical centers...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of perforations and complications related to gastrointestinal (GI) surgery and interventional flexible endoscopy is increasingly performed endoscopically. New devices enabling secure full-thickness GI tract closures through flexible endoscopic platforms have been recently developed. AIM: To assess feasibility of endoscopic closure of a large gastrotomy using a tip-mounted flexible endoscopic suturing device. METHODS: Six pigs were involved in this study...

BACKGROUND: Weight gain after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass occurs in approximately 25 % of cases, and this may contribute to recurrence of comorbid conditions. Currently, adequate treatment strategies for this group of patients are limited. Endoscopic narrowing of the gastrojejunal anastomosis may result in a low-risk, minimally invasive treatment alternative compared to standard surgical revision. We assessed short-term outcomes in patients undergoing endoscopic gastrojejunal revisions (EGJR) using an endoluminal suturing device...

BACKGROUND: Overstitch endoscopic suturing system (Apollo Endosurgery. Austin, Texas) was created for NOTES procedures.As it demonstrated to be feasible, secure and effective in this field, further studies have evaluated its use in common gastrointestinal disorders in which current therapeutic tools, endoscopic or not, are not efficient or safe enough. Published results are promising. We present our initial experience with this system in the management of pathologies we usually face in our clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Gastric submucosal tumors are often treated by laparoscopic wedge resection. This study aimed to examine the feasibility of gastric full-thickness resection through a totally endoscopic approach using the master and slave transluminal endoscopic robot (MASTER), and closure of the luminal defect with an endoscopic suturing device. METHODS: The operation was performed in two live porcine models under general anesthesia. First, the anterior wall of the stomach was slung to the abdominal wall using a percutaneous suturing device...

BACKGROUND: Per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) requires advanced flexible endoscopic skills, especially in the management of complications. METHODS: We present a full-thickness esophagotomy while performing POEM and repair using an endoscopic suturing device. STANDARD OPERATIVE TECHNIQUE: An anterior esophageal 2 cm mucosectomy is created 7-10 cm proximal to the gastroesophageal junction after a submucosal wheal is raised. A submucosal tunnel is created and extended to 2 cm on the gastric cardia...

BACKGROUND: Despite advances in many areas of therapeutic endoscopy, the development of an effective endoscopic suturing device has been elusive. The purpose of this trial was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a suturing device to place and secure sutures within normal, in vivo human colonic tissue prior to surgical resection. METHODS: Patients undergoing elective colectomy were enrolled in this treat-and-resect model. The Overstitch endoscopic suturing device (Apollo Endosurgery, Austin, TX) was used to place sutures in healthy colonic tissue during a 15-minute, time-limited period...
