Description

Innovations in Surgery is a monthly, case-based videoconference and CME webcast educational series providing demonstrations and discussions of new and innovative minimally invasive procedures, devices, and techniques. The overall goal of this series is to enhance participants' knowledge, competence, and skills to perform surgical procedures and improve outcomes.

The Savior of Gastric Banding? Banding Plus Plication webcast reviews the most current data on adjustable gastric banding, as well as the addition of plication.

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss current state of adjustable gastric banding.
  2. Discuss addition of plication to adjustable gastric banding (current data, hypothesized mechanisms).
  3. Recognize that the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band is becoming increasingly unpopular.
  4. Describe the rationale behind adding gastric plication to a gastric banding procedure.
  5. Appreciate that there is currently insufficient data to support the plication of a gastric banding procedure.

Target Audience

These activities are directed to practicing surgeons and other health practitioners who care for patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery.
