No malabsorption is in question in this technique, and the food is absorbed by the duodenum as well. Since negative hormones secreted from the duodenum are quite effective in the surgical treatment of diabetes, this operation offers effective weight control, but has limited effect on blood sugar control.

Type 2 diabetic patients who cannot achieve blood sugar control despite appropriate treatment or suffering from organ damage should consider this operation.

This is not a standard treatment for patients with low body mass index, and should only be performed in accordance with certain clinic protocols. Two important advantages and one disadvantage about Ileal Transposition Interposition have been reported. First of the advantages is that it can be performed on patients with a broad range of BMI Body Mass Index , and the other one is that with the exception of patients who already need iron, B12 vitamin and D vitamin supplement prior to the surgery, the operation does not necessitate any additional vitamin supplement.

Its disadvantage is that the operation technically quite challenging because it consists of numerous stages and therefore require serious training and technical expertise. Longer operation times than other procedures Reported costs change between 15,, USD. It should not be forgotten that even though this operation can provide miraculous results, it can lead to disastrous outcomes when performed by people who do not have the necessary qualifications.

The Port of Piraeus occupies a huge territory. Since privatisation of the Port of Piraeus Authority [3] passenger facilities have improved greatly. Air conditioned tents have been set up at departure locations around the port and free wi-fi internet access is now available. Sailings arrivals and departures are posted outside the Coast Guard Building at Karaiskaki Square, the main bus terminal for the Piraeus suburbs.

Sailings are also available online for cruise ships [4] or from the Ministry of Merchant Marine [5]. The area can become hectic, especially during the summer period, so allow plenty of time to navigate to the correct departure gate.

Most travellers arriving in Piraeus from central Athens make use of the very convenient Metro [6]. Line 1 terminates at the Port, from there it's a short walk to the Saronic Gulf ferries, hydrofoils and catamarans, or a free shuttle-bus ride to the ships sailing to Crete and the Dodecanses.

Central Cyclades ferries conveniently sail from just across the metro station. Allow 90 minutes for the trip. The Airport is also accessible via the Metro, with a connection at Monastiraki. Other public buses connect Piraeus with its outlying suburbs, the southern coastal zone and with central Athens.

They must be bought in advance generally from kiosks or inside metro stations and validated once on board. During the "summer season", a large number of cruise ships call on the port of Piraeus. Large ships dock about meters farther away near Gate E12, closer to the busy entrance to this harbor.

The two terminals can handle up to 25, passengers per day. Otherwise, you face a minute walk with gates to ferry and freight docks on the shore side, and various commercial and civic buildings on the other side of the very busy Miaoulis Avenue. Stay on the harbor side of the road, and pass several gates all starting with the letter 'E'.

The Metro Station a yellow neoclassical building with white trim is opposite gate E6 and is accessible by the only pedestrian bridge over the busy port road. It was later stolen by the Galactic Alliance Remnant upon completion and turned into their flagship. Some Star Destroyers possessed gravity-well projectors, capable of inhibiting hyperspace travel, such as the Interdictor -class. The 1,meter-long Interdictor -class Star Destroyer comprised several designs of Star Destroyers fitted with gravity well projectors based on the ones from the smaller Immobilizer cruiser.

The high cost of the Nebula -class Star Destroyer meant few ships were built. The Nebula -class, also known as Defender -class, was a class of expensive and powerful warships. They were only 1, meters long, but their firepower was strong enough to dominate any known Star Destroyer class at the time and could take on some Super Star Destroyers as well. While smaller than other Destroyers they were packed with armament, at the expense of crew endurance. Because of their power requirements, they were very expensive and had a relatively small production run.

Despite this, they performed well as core fleets during the Yuuzhan Vong War. Like the Interdictor -class cruiser , Harrower-class dreadnought , Venator -class Star Destroyer and Imperial -class Star Destroyer before it, the Pellaeon -class Star Destroyer was the mainstay capital ship of its era.

It was fielded over years after the destruction of the Death Star. The Pellaeon -class was built over years after the Battle of Endor and the beginning of the downfall of the first Galactic Empire.

It later served as the signature vessel of Darth Krayt 's Empire. The Republic -class had a long design phase, beginning as a new warship project early on in the New Republic but only fielded in limited amounts after Operation Shadow Hand.

Ships were distributed to several task forces at some point before the Black Fleet Crisis. They were 1, meters long and despite being bigger than the Nebula -class, were weaker than them, being less powerful than an Imperial II -class Star Destroyer. Although its size technically qualified it under the Star Cruiser subclass of Star Battlecruiser under length requirements, its comparative lack of heavy armaments and carrier -like qualities had it retain the Star Destroyer classification.

The Sorannan -class was a weapons and engine testbed for the Galactic Empire. Upon learning of the destruction of Byss six years earlier , Camp Pa'aal Squadron scattered, with the newly renamed Rakehell ending up in the Outer Rim , and ultimately being destroyed during the Battle of Anx Minor later that year.

The 1, meter Tector -class was a hangarless design that was built during the Clone Wars, but only widely fielded during the reign of the Galactic Empire. Like the Imperial -class, it saw service for decades. The Venator -class was 1, meters long, and had the dual role of warship and carrier during the Clone Wars.

They served as Jedi flagships during the Wars, and were thus heavily linked to them, leading to their gradual abandonment by the Galactic Empire. Their other weakness was long hangar bay doors, which were vulnerable while opening and closing.

The Victory -class Star Destroyer was a rushed production and subsequently suffered for it in naval plans. They were meters long and were not as well-made as other Star Destroyer designs, despite early successful campaigns like the hunt for the Bulwark Fleet during the Clone Wars.

The Victory -class still managed to serve for many decades and for successive galactic governments despite its flaws. The Victory II -class was made right after the establishment of the Galactic Empire, and was produced in even fewer numbers than the Victory I.

In The Star Wars: Rough Draft , a Stardestroyer is a small, two-man craft. The final film used this term for large capital ships, and all contemporaneous written sources spelled it as two words.

Sounds from the Goodyear blimp were mixed in to create the iconic rumble of a Star Destroyer. Or this might have been just a generalization. The term "Star Destroyer" is used both for different classes of destroyers and as a general term for most dagger-shaped warships in use by the Empire, from smaller frigates like the Demolisher to giant dreadnoughts like the Executor and the Eclipse. This has created some ambiguity, as many sources describe ships only as a "Star Destroyer" or "Imperial Star Destroyer.

In the endnotes for The Essential Guide to Warfare , Jason Fry mentioned that he initially had trouble coming up with a class for the various Star Destroyers, until he eventually settled on making Star Destroyer a ship class, due to it being used synonymously with a big capital ship, which likewise implied a ship class. Lego has released a set featuring the Star Destroyer. Sign In Don't have an account?
