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
