These images contain important information on Lap Band, Obesity, and Bariatric Surgery for weight loss.

A - The Lap Band

B - Barium as it sits in the dilated or enlarged stomach pouch above the Lap Band.

C - Notice the lip of stomach overhanging the Lap Band.

D - Notice a very small amount of barium sitting below the Lap Band in the main part of the stomach below the Lap Band. The flow is impeded either because the Lap Band is too tight around the stomach or that there is too much stomach coming up above the Lap Band.

Notice the depressed angle of the Lap Band. Normally the Lap Band should be sitting at at 45 degree angle in the direction towards the top right side of the image.
