INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is one of the most frequently done procedures for morbid obesity. In most reported cases, the band itself is the cause of complications. There are only a few reports of morbidities caused by the connecting tube. This presentation describes a case of acute abdomen due to small bowel herniation between the connecting tube and the abdominal wall. This case report aims to remind clinicians of possible complications caused by the connecting tube of a gastric band...

AIMS: To achieve additional weight loss or to resolve band-related problems, a laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) can be converted to a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). There is limited data on the feasibility and safety of routinely performing a single-step conversion. We assessed the efficacy of this revisional approach in a large cohort of patients operated in a high-volume bariatric institution. METHODS: Between October 2004 and December 2015, a total of 885 patients who underwent LAGB removal with RYGB were identified from a prospectively collected database...

Obesity is one of the most important public health conditions worldwide. Bariatric surgery for severe obesity is an effective treatment that results in the improvement and remission of many obesity-related comorbidities, as well as providing sustained weight loss and improvement in quality of life. Contemporary bariatric operations include Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, adjustable gastric band and the duodenal switch. The vast majority of these procedures are now performed using laparoscopic technique, the main advantages of which include rapid recovery, the reduction of postoperative pain and the reduction of wound-related complications, compared with open surgery...

INTRODUCTION: We present a rare case of jejunal obstruction due to the migration of a laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB) that occurred 10 years after surgery and was successfully treated by laparoscopy. This report is compliant with the SCARE guidelines. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 42-year-old woman who underwent LAGB for morbid obesity 10 years ago was admitted with a small bowel obstruction due to the migration of a LAGB in the proximal small bowel. An attempt to endoscopic removal was unsuccessful and resulted in a laparoscopic extraction of the band...

BACKGROUND: Although considered a common bariatric procedure, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is associated with high rates of weight loss failure and long-term complications. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to re-assess the safety and outcome of conversion of failed LAGB to laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred and nine patients underwent conversion from LAGB to LSG (78 females, mean age 43 ± 11...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a safe procedure with variable outcomes and large standard deviations. LAGB with gastric plication (LAGBP) is a new restrictive procedure that combines the lap band with gastric plication. This procedure, with its mechanism being below the band anatomically, should augment the weaknesses of the lap band: slips and inadequate weight loss. OBJECTIVE: Compare the weight loss results and complication rates between the LAGB and LAGBP...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate readmissions following laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). BACKGROUND: Few studies have evaluated national readmission rates for primary bariatric surgery with national, bariatric-specific data. METHODS: Patients undergoing primary LAGB, LSG, or LRYGB from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014, at 698 centers were identified based upon Current Procedural Terminology codes...

Obesity alone is a known risk factor for nephrolithiasis, and bariatric surgery has been linked to a higher incidence of post-operative new-onset nephrolithiasis. The mean interval from bariatric surgery to diagnosis of nephrolithiasis, ranges from 1.5 to 3.6 years. The stone risk is greatest for purely malabsorptive procedures, intermediate for Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and lowest for purely restrictive procedures (laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy) where it approaches or is reduced below that of non-operative obese controls...

Bariatric surgery is considered to be the most effective treatment modality in maintaining long-term weight reduction and improving obesity-related conditions in morbidly obese patients. In Korea, surgery for morbid obesity was laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy first performed in 2003. Since 2003, the annual number of bariatric surgeries has markedly increased, including adjustable gastric banding (AGB), Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, mini-gastric bypass, and others. In Korea, AGB is much more common than in others countries...

BACKGROUND: Patient-reported outcomes and perceptions are critical to the overall efficacy and acceptability of a surgical procedure. Outcomes, such as patient satisfaction and perceived success of the surgery and adverse symptoms, have not been described in detail following bariatric surgery. The associations and predictors of patient satisfaction have not been defined. This study aimed to examine long-term outcomes and perceptions after laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB)...

There are several described pulmonary complications due to laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. We report a rare case of a 32-year-old male who presented with pulmonary symptoms and a solitary lung mass 12 years after laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. A bronchoscopic lung biopsy showed organizing pneumonia that was induced by aspiration pneumonia. The atypical radiological appearance of the aspiration pneumonia may pose a diagnostic challenge, and clinicians' awareness regarding such an entity is needed to avoid unnecessary intervention...

Despite the decreasing popularity of gastric banding, a large number of patients still have a band in situ. Although immediate postoperative complications are relatively rare, long-term complications of gastric banding are more common but are not reported to occur after band removal. We report a case of gastric volvulus and subsequent ischaemic perforation in a patient shortly after band removal, resulting in emergency laparotomy and total gastrectomy. Severe continuing pain persisting after band deflation and even gastric band removal should be treated as an emergency and urgent investigation should not be delayed...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is the third most popular bariatric procedure worldwide. Various authors present ambivalent long-term follow up results. METHODS: We revised records of the patients who underwent LAGB between 2003 and 2006 along with history of additional check-ins. Patients with outdated details were tracked with the national health insurance database and social media (Facebook). An online survey was sent. The patients who did not have their band removed were included in this study...

One of the most effective methods to tackle obesity and its related comorbidities is bariatric surgery. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometrial hyperplasia (EH), which are associated with increased risk of endometrial carcinoma, have been identified as potentially new indications for bariatric surgery. PCOS is the most common endocrine disorder in women in the reproductive age and is associated with several components of the metabolic syndrome such as obesity, insulin resistance and hypertension. EH is a pre-cancerous condition which arises in the presence of chronic exposure to estrogen unopposed by progesterone such as both in PCOS and obesity...

BACKGROUND: Conversion of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) to other operations is commonly done for significant weight recidivism and complications. METHODS: This is a consecutive series of LAGB converted to RYGB done at the Bariatric and Metabolic Institute (BMI) Abu Dhabi from 2009 to 2013 for weight recidivism. Our preferred approach is to convert LAGB to LRYGB in one stage. All patients undergo upper endoscopy (EGD) and upper gastrointestinal series and are started on clears liquids 2 h after surgery without performing UGI studies...

BACKGROUND: Various types of adjustable gastric bands are used during LAGB, but there is insufficient data comparing different bands in the long term. We carried out a prospective randomized study to compare two different bands. METHODS: Between January 1, 2009 and January 31, 2010, 103 morbidly obese patients were randomized between SAGB and MiniMizer Extra adjustable gastric bands. The SAGB was used in 49 and MiniMizer Extra in 54 patients. Weight loss, comorbidities, long-term complications, and quality of life were evaluated after 5 years...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a chronic disease that requires procedures to enable to maintain good long-term results. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) studies with a long-term follow-up are limited and have often given conflicting results. We report our results in terms of banding life span and weight loss in a cohort of 301 patients operated on LAGB with a minimum follow-up of 10 years. METHODS: All patients who underwent LAGB at our university hospital between 1998 and 2004 were included in this study...
