ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study that assessed whether patients were able to maintain their weight after gastric band removal and how they felt about banding. Of 41 patients studied, 10 patients wanted their bands removed, 5 patients maintained their weight while the rest gained weight. The study also revealed that 73% would not agree to gastric banding again. The study concluded that long term outcome following band removal is unsatisfactory for most patients while a minority maintained their weight.
