The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of left gastric artery embolization(bariatric arterial embolization) for morbid obesity. When the target vessel is blocked, some of the body's signals for feeling hungry will be suppressed and lead to weight loss.
Although there are many ways to treat morbid obesity, surgery is currently the only effective method to be confirmed. But surgical treatment is likely to carry a high risk of treatment-related complications, such as fistula or intestinal obstruction, etc. This study is designed to help treat obesity using a method of transvascular interventional therapy, which is minimally invasive and non-surgical.

- Weight Loss [ Time Frame: Baseline, post-op 1 month, 3 months, 6 months,9 months,12 months ]Unit of Measure: Percentage of excess weight loss [%EWL]. The body weight will be measured within 2-4h after breakfast.
- Blood pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline, post-op 1 month, 3 months, 6 months,9 months,12 months ]The brachial artery blood pressure will be measured in the early hours of the morning and under the quiet situation. Unit of Measure: mmHg.
- Lipid Profile [ Time Frame: Baseline, post-op 1 month, 3 months, 6 months,9 months,12 months ]Blood cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels and lipoprotein levels will be detected. Unit of Measure: mmol/L.
- Number of Patients with Adverse Events [ Time Frame: post-op 30 days ]Surgical complications and adverse events such as massive hemorrhage, femoral artery pseudoaneurysm, gastric mucosal ischemia and necrosis and gastric perforation, etc., will be documented.
- Ghrelin levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, post-op 1 month, 3 months, 6 months,9 months,12 months ]Unit of Measure: pg/mL. Detection of serum Ghrelin levels will be obtained using fasting blood in the morning.
- Abdominal fat content [ Time Frame: Baseline, post-op 1 month,6 months,12 months ]Abdominal fat content detected by MRI.
- Leptin levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, post-op 1 month, 3 months, 6 months,9 months,12 months ]Detection of serum Leptin levels will be obtained using fasting blood in the morning. Unit of Measure: pg/mL.
- Results of Gastroendoscopic Examination [ Time Frame: Baseline, post-op 1 week, post-op 1 month, 3 months, 6 months,9 months,12 months ]Photos and clinical reports will be analyzed.
- Quality of Life Parameters Survey [ Time Frame: 12 months ]N/A Utilizing SF-36/ pre and post procedure to determine the changes of quality in life; everyday activities.
