Gastric electrical stimulation for gastroparesis (IPG103)
NICE has reviewed this guidance and is reassessing the procedure. New guidance will be published as a result. Until the new guidance is published the NHS should continue to follow the recommendations in the guidance here.
The Interventional Procedures Advisory Committee (IPAC) will consider this procedure review and NICE will issue an interventional procedures consultation document about its safety and efficacy for 4 weeks’ public consultation. IPAC will then review the consultation document in the light of comments received and produce a final interventional procedures document, which will be considered by NICE before guidance is issued to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
If you wish to be alerted to developments regarding this procedure, including the release of the consultation document, you will first need to log in and you can express an interest here
Gastroparesis happens when the nerve supply to the stomach becomes damaged or stops working. The result is that the stomach does not work normally, and it takes longer than usual for the partially digested food to move into the intestine. The person may feel sick or have long periods of vomiting. It sometimes occurs in patients with diabetes, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease, but may also be because of unknown causes.
For gastroelectrical stimulation, the stomach is connected to a stimulating device that is positioned in a small ‘pocket’ made in the skin of the abdomen. When the stimulating device is turned on, it sends electrical impulses to the stomach. The amount of stimulation can be adjusted to suit the patient.

The NHS Classifications Service of NHS Connecting for Health is the central definitive source for clinical coding guidance and determines the coding standards associated with the classifications (OPCS-4 and ICD-10) to be used across the NHS. The NHS Classifications Service and NICE work collaboratively to ensure the most appropriate classification codes are provided. www.connectingforhealth.co.uk/clinicalcoding
