Anterior Slip of an Adjustable Gastric Band

Anterior Slip of an Adjustable Gastric Band

Author(s): Timothy Koch and Timothy Shope

The location of the adjustable gastric band is indicated by the arrow. The orientation of the gastric band is now horizontal, and is no longer positioned at a left to right diagonal, supporting an anterior slip of the gastric band. Contrast that is outlining the left edge of the gastric band raised the question of a potential band erosion, but instead represents contrast in the fundus that is outlining the gastro-gastric plication that had been made with sutures. The absence of an eccentric dilation of the proximal gastric pouch does not exclude an anterior slip.
