The integrated GST system
What is an integrated GST system?
GST is the latest bariatric surgery technology in the world and in Egypt. It is an integrated American system that provides the obese patient with the highest safety rates in bariatric surgery.
The name GST is an abbreviation for the term Gripping Suface Technology which is a characteristic gripping force of stomach tissue, And it is distinguished by the staples of THE GST, where it grippes the stomach tissue strongly and automatically to prevent it completely from slipping or moving inside the stapler, which ensures strong stapling and completely prevents the possibility of leakage.
The GST system is not just a stapler:
Dr. Osama Khalil emphasizes that the integrated GST system is not just a staple, but also includes the stapler battery, its spare parts and the technology with which the stapler works.
10 features you will only find in the GST system:
1- Ensures the highest safety rates in bariatric surgery and reduces human error.
2- Provides the ability to hold stomach tissue firmily inside the stapler and prevent it from slipping or moving during stapling.
3- Reduces the likelihood of bariatric surgery complications to approach zero, mainly the possibility of leakage.
4- Reduces the likelihood of damage to stomach tissue as a result of its movement during stapling.
5- Automatic and not manual staple force.
6- Stapler is suitable for holding various types of stomach tissue, no matter how thick.
7- GST stapler has the ability to extend a pin line in an electronic and harmonious form without any openings allowing the leak to occur.
8- THE GST SYSTEM includes the presence of easy bending surgical pins to facilitate stapling in stomach tissue without any leak.
9- The power of GST staples is the same in all staple areas to avoid the leak problem as a result of more or less pressure than required.
10- Stapler has the ability to move in all directions, safely and easily to reach all the tissues of the stomach even the difficult ones.
Why is GST the safest system in the world?
The GST has become the safest American system in bariatric surgeries in the world. This is because the leak has become a ghost that attacks anyone who intends to perform bariatric surgery. The GST system protects against this problem as we mentioned earlier.
