The Schreiber – Kapp Bariatric Ring Marker from Kapp Surgical, Inc. is a permanent marker of the bypassed stomach which anchors the stomach to the abdominal wall (Pre-Gastrostomy). This provides access to the bypassed stomach for future treatment and diagnostic options. After gastric bypass surgery, the bypassed stomach remains permanently inaccessible for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. It is intended to be used to radiographically (with X-Ray) mark the site of the “gastropexy” performed during gastric bypass surgery, thereby making it accessible for future diagnostic, therapeutic and feeding purposes. It can be used on the remnant stomach for a minimally invasive procedure with the use of an endoscope and an endoscopic grasper. According to the company, the marker is easily accessible without major surgery for:

  • Emergency gastric decompression
  • Gastrostomy tube placement / feeding
  • Diagnostic contrast studies
  • Endoscopic inspection of the bypassed stomach
  • Easy implantation - should be used prophylactically on every bariatric case
