Abstract

More attention has been paid to bariatric surgery due to an increase in the obese population in Korea. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is the most popular procedure for weight-loss but the complication rate may increase with time. Revision surgery is needed if there are complications or the weight is regained after LAGB, and a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy could be performed in the case of band failure. Successful band removal and sleeve gastrectomy wereperformed simultaneously without complications.
