We present a video that illustrates novel approaches to remove the eroded adjustable gastric band. These approaches involve endolumenal and laparoscopic techniques.
Conclusion: Endoscopic removal of eroded laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is safe and effective. It can be used as a first-choice procedure in clinical practice. Laparoscopic assisted techniques can also be utilized in challenging cases where endoscopy alone will not suffice.
