The article relates the use of single access transumbilical laparoscopic gastric banding in 8 patients with peripheral obesity. Results revealed that 7 out of 8 attempted procedures were successfully performed using the technique with one patient requiring the insertion of an additional trocar. Mean operative time is 105 minutes while no mortality nor post surgery complications were noted. It suggests that single access transumbilical laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is a safe and feasible evolving approach to selected patients.
