Systematic Review of Erosion after Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding.

Summary of "Systematic Review of Erosion after Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding."

Erosion of the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB) into the lumen of the stomach is a recognised complication of this procedure. We undertook a systematic literature review of the incidence, clinical features and management of erosions occurring after LAGB. A systematic search of relevant medical databases for full-text original articles looking for LAGB patients and reported erosions was conducted. We focussed on incidence, aetiology, clinical presentation, treatment, complications and weight loss. Twenty-five studies of LAGB reported 231 erosions in 15,775 patients (overall incidence of 1.46%). The mean number of patients per study was 631 (±486), and the mean follow-up was 3.73 (±2.4) years. In four reports involving less than 100 patients, there were 27 erosions in a total of 270 patients (10%) compared with 180 erosions in 12,978 patients (1.386%) in the remaining 21 reports. Multiple regression analysis showed that erosion rate was significantly predicted by number of patients and number of years of surgeon experience (r (2) = 0.186). Treatment was most commonly by removal of the band, repair of the stomach and later, band replacement. Other options were removal alone or conversion to another procedure. Weight loss was retained after treatment of the erosion with a mean weight loss at final follow-up of 50.34 ± 3.9 percent excess weight loss. Incidence of erosion after gastric banding is relatively low and can be related to surgeon experience. The most common treatment described in the literature is removal of the eroded band with delayed replacement. Replacement of the band is associated with maintenance of weight loss.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.

Multi-step systematic review process used for improving safety by investigation of incidents to find what happened, why it happened, and to determine what can be done to prevent it from happening again.

Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.

Organizations representing designated geographic areas which have contracts under the PRO program to review the medical necessity, appropriateness, quality, and cost-effectiveness of care received by Medicare beneficiaries. Peer Review Improvement Act, PL 97-248, 1982.

Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.
