Gastric Band Placement
This series of illustrations shows: the placement of laparoscopic instruments in the upper left quadrant of the abdomen, placement of the gastric band in the upper part of the stomach, leaving only a small pouch above the gastric band, and securing the band in place by placing stitches in the muscular wall of the stomach above and below the band and bringing this together above the band.
