SG = sleeve gastrectomy; Group A = normal appearance; Group B = SSA without band migration; SSA = Snake-Skin Appearance of Gastric Mucosa.

Of the 49 patients with a band in situ, 17 (34.7%) underwent follow-up endoscopy at our hospital for a mean 21.1±7.5 months (all showed grossly normal gastric mucosa compressed by band). Other 32 patients were regularly followed for band adjustment using clinico-radiologic studies (esophagograms).
