The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on Laparoscopic gastric plication for the treatment of morbid obesity
Laparoscopic gastric plication reduces the size of the stomach to limit food intake. It is carried out using keyhole surgery through several (usually 5 or 6) small cuts in the abdomen (belly). It involves folding the stomach in on itself and stitching it together to reduce its volume by about 70%. None of the stomach is removed and the procedure is potentially reversible.
