I believe that the ViSiGi 3D® device is invaluable when performing sleeve gastrectomies. Prior to switching to ViSiGi 3D®, I was using a lighted bougie. However, the time it took to properly insert the orogastric tube, then remove the tube, insert the bougie, remove the bougie and insert an orogastric tube was excessive. The decompression of the stomach achieved with the ViSiGi 3D® is superior to that with an orogastric tube. I believe that delineation of the staple line will help to decrease the chance of staple link leaks. Finally, the distention of the stomach achieved during the leak test is superior. I particularly appreciate the fact the pressure created is standardized and quantifiable.
