Radiology Procedures
Bariatric arterial embolization is an image-guided, minimally invasive procedure that places a biocompatible obstruction (embolic) in the left gastric artery. The obstruction serves to limit blood flow to the area of the stomach where the hormone ghrelin is predominantly produced. As a result of the reduced blood supply, less ghrelin enters the bloodstream. Reduction of ghrelin, the only known appetite-stimulating hormone, is directly associated with weight loss. A recent study conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital found that patients who underwent left gastric artery embolization lost almost 8% of their body weight within three months.
