Gastroparesis

  • Stomatch Disorder

  • Caused as a consequence of diabetes type 1

  • It happens when the thevagus nerve stops working.

  • Causes Bacterial Overgrowth due to fermentation of remains.

  • Can be treated with Enterra a Neurostimulator by Medtronic.

  • Stimulates de Nerve with electrical impulses.

  • It’s a treatment not a solution for gastroparesis.

Enterraby Medtronics

  • The neurostimulatorsends mild electrical pulses through the leads to stimulate the nerves and smooth muscles of the lower stomach

  • After the device is implanted, the doctor uses a handheld, external programmer to adjust the neurostimulator and customize the stimulation for each patient

Epilepsy

Epilepsy

  • Epilepsy is caused by abnormalities in brain electrical activity.

  • The brain in unable to stop or inhibit electrical impulses between neurons.

  • When the electrical discarded happens the epileptic attack happens.

  • Treatment for this disorder is VNS Pulse Therapy by Cybertronics.


Vns pulse therapy

VNS Pulse Therapy

  • VNS therapy can improve the sense of control in patients with epilepsy to live more normal lives.

  • The therapy includes a pacemaker-like device.

  • Placed on the chest and neck just under the skin.

  • The device works continually by sending small electrical impulses to the vagus nerve in the neck.
