Abstract

In the recent past, laparoscopic adjustable gastric bands (LAGBs) have been used extensively in bariatric surgery. Despite questionable long-term efficacy, they are generally safe and reversible. We report a possibly unique presentation of a potential hazard of the insertion technique; a misplaced LAGB encircling the abdominal aorta, which was confirmed radiologically and on operative removal of the gastric band. This is a dramatic complication of LAGB, representing an important anatomical hazard for gastric band insertion.
