In this key lecture, Dr. Suter presents the key points for the management of failed gastric band (GB). He defines what a failed bariatric procedure is. He provides a brief strategy to handle insufficient weight loss management, as well as the main goals and treatment options in case of failed GB. He briefly describes the technical aspects of revisional Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) and the main principles for gastric pouch creation. He also presents cases of conversion to RYGBP, referring to the literature, including his experience in Switzerland.
