Cleveland Clinic performs new procedure for digestive disease
Abu Dhabi - WAM

Physicians at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi have performed the region’s first Per Oral Pyloromytomy, POP, procedure, an innovative technique that can alleviate the debilitating symptoms of gastroparesis, a chronic digestive disease.

The non-surgical technique is based on techniques pioneered in Japan and is now available at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, where four UAE National patients have already undergone the procedure this year.

Gastroparesis, which is also known as delayed gastric emptying or "paralysed stomach", is a disease that prevents a patient’s stomach from digesting food and emptying properly. Sufferers experience a range of debilitating symptoms, such as severe nausea, vomiting, heartburn, extreme weight loss, bloating and acid reflux.

While diabetes is one of the main causes of gastroparesis, other illnesses can also cause the disease, such as chronic pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, kidney disease, Turner’s syndrome and Parkinson’s disease. In some cases, the cause is unknown and can also occur after previous surgical procedures on the stomach.

"Gastroparesis affects millions of people around the world," said Dr. Matthew Kroh, Chief of the Digestive Disease Institute at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi. "In terms of incidence, it is one of the fastest-growing diseases that we are currently treating in the institute and, with more than one million people suffering from diabetes in the UAE, gastroparesis is a looming disease burden in the future."

The POP procedure allows physicians to cut the pylorus – the muscular valve that empties the stomach – without surgery. The procedure is performed through the mouth using advanced endoscopic tools and under high-definition vision, which lessens the risk of complications and eliminates the trauma of open surgery.
