Gastric plication is an emerging bariatric procedure with the potential for providing safe and significant weight loss and improvement of metabolic parameters without resection, bypass, or implantable device. Laparoscopic plication consists of infolding the greater gastric curvature to reduce stomach volume using running sutures. As a new procedure in bariatric/metabolic surgery very few clinical studies are available. Herein we present technical notes about and evidence from literature.

Abstract

Gastric plication is an emerging bariatric procedure with the potential for providing safe and significant weight loss and improvement of metabolic parameters without resection, bypass, or implantable device. Laparoscopic plication consists of infolding the greater gastric curvature to reduce stomach volume using running sutures. As a new procedure in bariatric/metabolic surgery very few clinical studies are available. Herein we present technical notes about and evidence from literature.
