Total mesh migration into the gastric lumen after vertical banded gastroplasty: A case report

Title variants
Languages of publication
Vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) is a remote bariatric restrictive procedure, more common in 1980s and initial 1990s. Many patients still possess this anatomy with its inherent complications. The reoperation rate for failure/complications reported in long-term studies is approximately 56 %, sometimes the surgical revision is technical complex and invasiveness. Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has been at first used to revise failed restrictive procedures. This study takes in vision a patient which was operated of VBG 15 years ago. This patient underwent a Roux-n-Y Gastric Bypass because of total intra luminal mesh migration. In this case the mesh migration caused a gastric lumen stenosis, it was necessary a complex revision surgical operation to remove the tight ring.
