Objective:: To examine the influence of age and gender on the development of proximal gastric pouch distension (PPD) after laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) surgery. Background:: PPD is the most common reason for revision with adjustable gastric banding surgery. Maintaining the anatomical integrity of bariatric surgery is a key to long-term success. It is therefore important to understand risk factors for complications.
