Laparoscopic Greater Curvature Plication

Procedure in detail:

Greater Curvature Plication is a purely restrictive procedure and involves no component of malabsorption, as seen in other Weight Loss Surgery types.  Please refer to the following diagram to visualize the steps of the procedure:

  • The greater curvature of the stomach is separated from the greater omentum.
  • At least two rows of stitches are placed laparoscopically about the greater curvature of the stomach starting at or near the angle of His and ending in the antrum.
  • The stomach is reduced to a small, tubular structure, approximately ¼ the size of the original structure, very much like the sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) except there is no resection of the stomach.
