Abstract:
Although substantial weight loss is the primary outcome following bariatric surgery, changes in obesity-related morbidity and quality of life (QoL) are equally important. This study reports on weight loss, QoL and health outcomes following laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB).; Bariatric analysis and reporting outcome system questionnaire survey was carried out on patients who had LAGB. Patients' body weight, body mass index, QoL and co-morbidities were recorded.; Twenty-three of 26 patients answered the questionnaire (response rate of 92%). Fifteen patients (60%) achieved over 50% excess weight loss. Twenty-two patients (84.6%) reported improvement in QoL. Co-morbidities in 18 patients (75%) resolved or improved. One patient had postoperative aspiration pneumonia and no other morbidity was recorded.; Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is a safe and feasible method of bariatric surgery. It can achieve satisfactory weight loss with significant improvement in QoL and co-morbidity provided patients undergo thorough preoperative preparation and rigorous postoperative follow-up.
