Details: No laparotomy necessary Minimally-invasive Cost-effective solution The simple way to remove eroded gastric bands Gastric banding is a common form of treatment for morbid obesity. However, studies have shown that anywhere between 2% and 9% of the implanted bands eventually migrate into the stomach and require subsequent explantation. The A.M.I. Gastric Band Cutter System is a cost-efficient solution designed to enable the fast, easy removal of such bands via gastroscope. This minimally-invasive technique requires no incisions or stomach dissection, thereby limiting the formation of more adhesions which may hamper further surgery. Use of the A.M.I. Gastric Band Cutter System has been proven both safe and effective*, and represents an attractive alternative to open or laparoscopic removal. * Gastric Band Erosion in 63 Cases: Endoscopic Removal and Rebanding Evaluated Chisolm et al., Obes Surg. 2011 Nov;21(11):1676-81
