Most anesthesiologists use an OG tube to decompress the stomach prior to surgery. Depending on the anatomy of the patient, these can be challenging to land inside of the stomach because the OG tube has a propensity to loop back on itself. The large diameter, and blunt tip of the ViSiGi 3D® allow for confident placement and rapid decompression. Since there is no OG tube present for the procedure, there is no risk of stapling the OG tube in place.
