Abstract

To determine the effect of the Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB) on gastric emptying, radionuclide solid and liquid gastric emptying in 12 obese patients prior to insertion of the GEGB was studied. Four were restudied at one and seven days and ten patients were restudied at twelve weeks with the GEGB in place. There were no significant differences in liquid gastric emptying at one and seven days nor in solid and liquid gastric emptying at twelve weeks. Solid gastric emptying was significantly decreased from a mean of 63% to 31% after one day (P <0.05) and returned to preplacement baseline by seven days. These results indicate that gastric emptying is not significantly changed after twelve weeks with the GEGB in place. Therefore, the mechanism of action for weight reduction with the GEGB is not likely to be mediated by an effect on gastric empyting. However, the solid food-induced dyspeptic symptoms commonly noted 1-3 days after placement of the GEGB, which resolve within seven days, are probably explained by transiently delayed solid gastric emptying.
