HELIOGAST HAGA


The synergies between the surgeons and the people in the Helioscopie Research and Development department made it possible to modify this implant so that today it has evolved into the Heliogast HAGA EV3 gastric band.

This band is the only one of its kind to have an adjustable “double balloon” membrane designed to increase the stability of the band and limit the risk of slippage.

It comes with the EV3 adjustment system, the only implantable port in the world that has 360° accessibility and that therefore precludes all complications related to the rotation of traditional adjustment ports.

To date, Helioscopie has marketed more than 60,000 Heliogast® gastric bands in the world.

Characteristics

  • Surgical and minimally-invasive
    Implanted in less than an hour by célioscopy.
    Limited scar size.
  • Safety and comfort
    Low-pressure inflatable band with a completely atraumatic surface.
  • Double balloon band
    Better stability.
  • Easy implantation
    Shape-memory band.
  • Reversible
    Unlocking via celioscopy.
  • Innovative ports

Three unique and patented implantable ports.

Silicone-coated surfaces for the patient’s comfort.
A cylindrical port with 360° accessibility facilitates needle puncture and avoids fixation at the site and rotation risks.

 

Results

  • Efficacy
    68% loss of excess weight after 5 years of treatment with the HELIOGAST® HAGA adjustable gastric band (1).
  • Safety
    Low complication rate after implantation of the HELIOGAST® HAGA adjustable gastric band.
  • Eating habits
    Change in eating habits by learning to eat slowly (passage reduced by the band) and in reasonable amounts.
