SADI and LiVac: Revolutionizing Malabsorption Surgery
Dr. Enochs, MD FASMBS, has successfully performed the SADI Procedure on many patients, helping them achieve weight loss and improved metabolic health. He attributes his success to the use of LiVac during the procedure.
LiVac is a single-use soft silicone device that attaches to regulated suction to create a vacuum, which joins the liver and diaphragm. This attachment is essential in the SADI-S Procedure as it makes the process smoother and more efficient.
In conventional malabsorption surgeries, the liver and diaphragm are separated, making it challenging to access the small intestine. LiVac, with its unique vacuum technology, solves this challenge by creating a space between the liver and diaphragm, making it easier to access the small intestine and perform the SADI Procedure.
What is the SADI Procedure?
The SADI (Single Anastomosis Duodeno-Ileal Bypass with Sleeve Gastrectomy) procedure is a type of malabsorption surgery that involves bypassing a large portion of the small intestine. During the surgery, a new stomach sleeve is sewn to a loop of the small intestine, bypassing most of the bowel. This means that food is routed through only 10 feet of the small intestine, allowing for less time and distance for the body to absorb fat and calories.
The SADI procedure has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its effectiveness in producing significant weight loss and resolving obesity-related health problems. It's often used as an alternative to other types of malabsorption surgeries, such as the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, because it can achieve similar weight loss outcomes with fewer complications.
How LiVac Works
The LiVac Retractor is a soft silicone device that uses regulated suction to create a vacuum between the liver and diaphragm. The device is single-use, making it an excellent option for healthcare professionals who are concerned about infection control.
The device has several benefits over traditional surgical techniques. First, it's easy to use and does not require extensive training or experience to use. Second, it's designed to be gentle on the surrounding tissue, minimizing the risk of damage or complications. Third, it's a single-use device, which eliminates the risk of contamination or infection from reused devices.
During the SADI Procedure, the surgeon inserts the LiVac Retractor through the abdomen and uses suction to create a vacuum between the liver and diaphragm. This vacuum space makes it easier to access the small intestine, where the bypass procedure takes place. The LiVac Retractor is removed once the procedure is complete.
The Benefits of LiVac
LiVac offers numerous benefits to both patients and healthcare professionals. For patients, the use of LiVac during the SADI Procedure leads to improved weight loss and metabolic health outcomes.
For healthcare professionals, LiVac makes the SADI Procedure smoother and more efficient. The device creates a space between the liver and diaphragm, which enables better access to the small intestine, reducing the time taken to complete the procedure.
LiVac also offers a cost-effective solution for healthcare facilities. The device is single-use, eliminating the need for reprocessing and sterilization, saving time and reducing costs.
