New paper published describing 12 year experience of 800 Gastric Plication surgery cases

11th September 2012

The most comprehensive evaluation of outcomes from Gastric Imbrication (or Gastric Plication) has been published by inventor of the technique, Dr Mohammad Talebpour, and coworkers.

The authors found a mean % excess weight loss of 55% after 5 years using this low cost bariatric surgery technique which requires no implant nor any removal of tissue. The technique continues to evolve, and EndoFLIP has recently been used in “Band over Imbrication” cases. In this extension to the gastric imbrication technique, still considered investigational, a LapBand is placed proximal to the imbricated sleeve, providing a means to adjust the restriction provided by the imbricated sleeve which otherwise would be reduced as the sleeve distends over time.
