INTRODUCTION: The laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB) can be revised to sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) for various reasons. Data are limited on the safety and efficacy of single-stage removal of LAGB and creation of LSG.
METHODS: A retrospective review of cases was performed from 2010 to 2013. From the primary LSG group, a control group was matched in a 2:1 ratio.
RESULTS: Thirty-two patients underwent single-stage revision from LAGB to LSG, with a control group of 64. The most common indication for revision was insufficient weight loss (62.5 %). Operative time for revision and control groups was 134 and 92 min, respectively (p < 0.0001). Hospital stay was 3.22 and 2.59 days, respectively (p = 0.02). Overall, the 30-day complication rate for revision and control patients was 14.71 and 6.25 %, respectively (p = 0.20). There were no leaks, one stricture (3.13 %) in the revision group, and one reoperation for bleeding in the control group (1.56 %). For patients with BMI >30 at surgery, change in BMI at 12 months for revision and control was 8.77 and 11.58, respectively (p = 0.02).
CONCLUSION: Single-stage revision can be performed safely, with minimal increases in hospital stay and 30-day complications. Weight loss is greater in those who undergo primary LSG compared to those who undergo LSG as revision.
