Indications for BariClip

BariClip is an innovative technique that reduces the capacity of the stomach without requiring invasive surgery. BariClip is intended for individuals suffering from moderate obesity, with a BMI between 30 and 40, who have not succeeded in losing weight with conventional methods. BariClip is also suitable for individuals who have contraindications or high risks associated with traditional bariatric surgery.


Mechanism of Action of a BariClip Operation

The BariClip procedure involves placing a clip around the stomach using an endoscope, without any incision or staples. The clip creates a smaller gastric pouch, which limits the amount of food the patient can consume. The clip also modifies the hormonal signals that regulate appetite and satiety, thereby promoting sustainable weight loss.


Results of BariClip

BariClip allows for an average weight loss of 20 to 30% of excess weight in 6 months, and up to 50% in a year. BariClip also improves the patient's quality of life by reducing obesity-related comorbidities, such as diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, or sleep apnea.



What are the risks of bariatric surgery?

Some of the risks of bariatric surgery include:


  • Oral supplementation of vitamins and trace elements is essential.


  • Bleeding


  • Leaks, infections


  • Mortality associated with respiratory failure, blood clots, or complications from the bypass procedure


  • Pulmonary embolism.


BariClip is a less invasive and less risky technique than traditional bariatric surgery. Complications are rare and generally minor, such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or infections. BariClip is also reversible, meaning that the clip can be removed if necessary without altering the stomach's anatomy.


In addition to the surgery itself, your physical condition and health status affect the risk. About 10 to 20% of patients who have undergone weight-loss surgery may require additional operations. Discuss the potential risks of the procedure with your surgeon.


Hospitalization for BariClip

The hospitalization duration for a BariClip operation is 2 to 3 days, under general anesthesia.


The patient must follow an adapted diet after the procedure, adhering to the doctor's and nutritionist's instructions. The patient must also engage in regular physical activity to optimize the results of the BariClip.
