Subjects who had the Easyband device implanted laparoscopically.
The Easyband adjustable gastric band device is implanted laparoscopically around the top of the stomach to create a small pouch. Adjustments to increase or decrease the stoma size are made non-invasively by telemetric connection between an internal and external antenna.
- Feasibility and Ease of Implantation [ Time Frame: < 1day ]Percent of subjects whose device implantation was rated by the surgeon as a 1 or 2 on a 5-point scale, where 1 is "very easy" and 5 is "impossible."
- % Excess Weight Loss [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Percent excess weight loss was defined as weight loss divided by excess weight multiplied by 100, where weight loss was equal to baseline weight minus follow-up weight, and excess weight was equal to baseline weight minus ideal weight.
- Change in BMI [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Decrease in body mass index (BMI; measured in kg/m2) from baseline to 12 months
- Change in Weight [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Change in weight (in kilograms) at baseline to 12 months
