Magnetic Sphincter Implant surgery ???

Leave a comment

The operation augments the Anti-reflux mechanism (lower esophageal sphincter) by placing a magnetic ring around the lower end of the esophagus.

 

The ring consists of magnetized titanium beads. At rest the magnetic attraction closes the ring around the esophagus and prevents reflux. During eating the swallow induced forces open the ring and allow the passage of food. Thus the magnetic ring works as magnetic sphincter. In addition, the ring generates a magnetic field, which is known to inhibit inflammation and pain (anti-inflammatory effect of the magnetic field).

 

Trials are being conducted into feasibility for use in Anal incontinence, Kind of like a Heart Valve only a … Fart Valve……

 

Magnets are truly Great !
