Description:

The paper discusses the causes behind the condition of obesity and looks at the literature on bariatric surgery and its procedures. This paper outlines a study that aims to create a rat model of adjustable gastric banding. The paper discusses its results and concludes that future research along the lines of obesity and comorbid related diseases will show great promise using rodent models to code the genetic and chemical component of obesity. This paper contains figures.

From the Paper:

"There is an explosion of bariatric surgery clients. It may be necessary that psychologist or psychotherapists may need to evaluate more fully the eating patterns of these patients prior to surgery. A great deal of the current research suggests that if the psychological matrix of eating disorder can be recognized prior to bariatric surgery, the patient will have a greater chance of long term success. (Toth and Schwartz 2006) However, some complications can occur with blockage of the band and unfortunately the reservoir implanted beneath the skin doesn't last forever. Consequently, weight regain with this method can also occur. In general gastric banding is no more successful than vertical-banded gastroplasty, and it too can result in iron and vitamin B12 deficiency. (Mcgowan and Chopra 2004)
"Just as with vertical-banded gastroplasty, blockage of the band can be problematic, and unfortunately the reservoir implanted beneath the skin doesn't last forever. Consequently, weight regain with this method can also occur. In general gastric banding is no more successful than vertical-banded gastroplasty, and it too can result in iron and vitamin B12 deficiency. (Mcgowan and Chopra 2004:21)"
