  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to compare plicated laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (PLAGB) to standard laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (SLAGB) in a prospective randomized clinical trial. We hypothesize the plicated procedure will provide greater short- and long-term excess weight loss than the standard procedure. There exists little prospective randomized data regarding this topic and the recent position statement from the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) encourages this type of study. Further information on background and design of this study are provided in the detailed description.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Weight Loss [ Time Frame: 36 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 36 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quantitative Change in Hypertension [ Time Frame: 36 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Systolic and Diastolic Blood Pressure will be measured over the scheduled visits and the change in preoperative and postoperative blood pressure will be determined. We will also assess the need for medications to treat hypertension before and after surgery.

  • Quantitative Change in Diabetes [ Time Frame: 36 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Blood Sugar will be measured over the scheduled visits and the change in preoperative and postoperative glucose levels will be determined. We will also assess the need for medications to treat diabetes before and after surgery.

  • Quantitative Change in Hyperlipidemia [ Time Frame: 36 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Lipid levels will be measured annually for 3 years and the change in preoperative and postoperative levels will be determined. We will also assess the need for medications to treat hyperlipidemia before and after surgery.

  • Quantitative Change in Hypertriglyceridemia [ Time Frame: 36 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Triglyceride levels will be measured annually for 3 years and the change in preoperative and postoperative levels will be determined. We will also assess the need for medications to treat hypertriglyceridemia before and after surgery.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Standard-LAGB
Subjects will be blinded and randomly assigned to the Standard Laparoscopic Gastric Banding(SLAGB)arm of the study. These subjects will receive the standard of care or standard laparoscopic gastric banding surgery.Subjects will be followed for a period of approximately 36 months.
Device: Standard-LAGB
The laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) procedure is a safe, effective, and durable treatment option for refractory morbid obesity and its related health consequences.5 This minimally invasive technique is now a popular approach for bariatric surgery, and it offers obvious advantages such as decreased operating time, shorter hospital stay (often same day surgery), and favorable complication rates as compared with other bariatric procedures.
Other Name: Standard Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding Surgery
Experimental: Plicated-LAGB
Subjects will be blinded and randomly assigned to the Plicated Laparoscopic Gastric Banding(PLAGB)arm of the study. These subjects will receive the plicated laparoscopic gastric banding surgery with involves the placement of plication sutures to "anchor" the redundant stomach around the newly placed device. Subjects will be followed for a period of approximately 36 months.
Device: Plicated-LAGB
At the time of LAGB placement, plication sutures can be placed along the body & greater curvature of the stomach to "tighten" and "cinch up" the stomach in a sleeve-like orientation. It was recently reported that this modified technique of plicated LAGB could result in lower band slippage complication rates and faster, early weight loss.
