dc.description.abstractComplications of laparoscopic adjustable gastric bands (LAGB) are well documented and may include migration, erosion, slippage, infection, pouch dilatation and, rarely, gastric perforation. We describe a rare case involving three such complications simultaneously, namely, gastric erosion, infection and migration through the pylorus-causing proximal jejunal obstruction. As LAGB is now the commonest performed bariatric procedure for the treatment of morbid obesity, we encourage the practising surgeon to be vigilant of these rare but potentially life-threatening complications.
