Laparoscopic Gastric Plication
The procedure is performed laparoscopic. The greater curvature of the stomach is separated from the greater omentum using a harmonic scalpel starting approximately 3-5 cm from the pylorus and ending at the angle of His. As needed, adhesions to the posterior surface of the stomach may be transected. At least two rows stitches will be placed laparoscopically about the greater curvature of the stomach starting at or near the angle of His and ending in the antrum. A calibration tube or endoscope will be used to maintain a lumen during the procedure, ensuring one exists after the procedure.
