This video shows the retroflexed view of an adjustable gastric band placed for morbid obesity. The patient was asymptomatic, but had evidence of full thickness erosion of a small portion of the band. This video demonstrates the importance of complete inspection of the band in retroflex view, as this finding was not visualized on the initial retroflex assessment.
