We present a case of a 30 year old female with a BMI of 37. She underwent the POSE procedure and had unsuccessful weight loss. She underwent Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) 3 months ago with an initial weight loss of 14 kgs

This video illustrates the procedure and highlights a safe technique for revisional LSG after POSE for patients with unsuccessful weight loss.


– Converting POSE to LSG is feasible

– Good initial weight loss

– Endoscopy is important in aiding with the procedure

– Larger studies with longer follow up required to validate our results and the safety and feasibility of the procedure
