Abstract: Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) was once considered to be a safe and effective surgical treatment for morbid obesity. Over the past years, its long-term efficacy and safety came into question by the occurrence of complications such as intragastric band migration. The incidence of intragastric band migration is reported to be between 0.4 and 3.8% [1,2,3,4]. The incidence of gastric perforations is 0.1–0.8% [5,6,7]. Removal of the band in case of migration is always required and often possible via upper endoscopy [2]. Overall, septic complications are rare. However, when they do occur they can be life-threatening.
