Houston, Texas 77030


Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to compare the neoClose abdominal closure to the standard Carter-Thomason closure in a bariatric surgery gastric bypass population.


Study summary:

Both the neoClose abdominal closure to the standard Carter-Thomason closure will be used to close 12 mm camera port sites and 12 mm stapler port sites upon completion of a robotic assisted laparoscopic gastric bypass. The procedure requires a 12 mm port site be placed in the midline approximately 3 cm cephalad to the umbilicus and a second 12mm port site in the right mid abdomen. Port sites will be closed as defined as the inability to palpate a fascial defect and the incision being air tight upon carbon dioxide insufflation.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Morbid obesity (BMI > 35). - Completed multimodality pre operative evaluation (Psychology, Nutrition, Support Groups). - Approved for robotic assisted laparoscopic gastric bypass. Exclusion Criteria: - Previous midline laparotomy or weight loss procedure.
