This video demonstrates a routine case of gastric banding in a patient with a BMI of 36. The surgeon creates a retrogastric window through the pars flaccida and passes a grasper to the angle of His. The band is then positioned and locked into place over a 15cc intragastric balloon. The anterior portion of band is buried with running suture.
