Background: The Band prolapse complications of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) can be treated endoscopically. We present two patients with repeated prolapses after endoscopic treatment that required gastric plication treatments.Methods: From December 2007 to March 2016, 1469 consecutive patients (227 male, 1242 female) underwent LAGB; 56 patients had band prolapses and 16 patients were treated by endoscopy. Among the 16 patients, two cases that showed repeated prolapses could be repaired with gastric plication treatments.Results: The first case was of a 35-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic gastric plication due to repeated band prolapse. The second case was of a 43-year-old woman with a history of three episodes of band prolapse underwent gastric plication treatment. The clinical features are discussed.Conclusions: Gastric plication treatment of recurred band prolapse is an effective and feasible procedure.
