THE ADJUSTABLE GASTRIC BAND, LAPAROSCOPIC




INDICATIONS



Listen




A surgeon may select the use of a gastric band to restrict the gastric size. The same selection criteria used for the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass apply.




PREOPERATIVE PREPARATION



Listen




Preoperative preparation and anesthetic considerations are similar to the gastric bypass.




OPERATIVE PREPARATION



Listen




Prophylactic antibiotics and venous thromboembolism prophylaxis are employed. A Foley catheter is not inserted into the bladder because of the short duration of the procedure.
