GASTRIC CALIBRATION TUBE
- The MIDSOND is a silicone tube with a diameter of 12.5 mm (38 Fr). A balloon is located 6 cm from its distal tip.
- This balloon can be inflated by means of a valve attached to the proximal part of the catheter.
GASTRIC BANDING PROCEDURE WITH THE MIDBAND
- The MIDSOND has been designed and adapted to assist with the insertion of the MIDBAND TM adjustable gastric band.
- The balloon is inflated between the band and the cardia during surgical intervention in order to determine the dimension of the gastric pouch to be created by the MIDBAND TM.
