In 2004, a 57-year-old lady underwent a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) for morbid obesity. After the surgical intervention, she lost 13Kg and she started to regain weight back with a current BMI of 41. During this live procedure, Professor Perretta performs a gastroscopy that shows a normal gastric pouch and a gastrojejunal anastomosis increased in caliber. The operator does an endoscopic resizing of the anastomosis with Argon Plasma Coagulation (APC) followed by the placement of an endoscopic suture with the Apollo OverStitch™ endoscopic suturing system.
