Adjustable laparoscopic gastric banding: Demonstrated on multidetector computed tomography with multiplanar reformation and 3-dimensional imaging

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a widely performed surgical procedure for morbid obesity in Europe and Australia. An upper gastrointestinal examination is usually used to assess for band placement and possible complications. Computed tomography (CT) is not used routinely but may be beneficial to evaluate LAGB and possible complications. Also, LAGB may be incidentally demonstrated on CT. We report 2 patients with LAGB that was well demonstrated on multidetector CT with multiplanar reformation and 3-dimensional imaging.
