Gastro-clip gastroplasty: a very long-term complication.

For most surgeons, the gastro-clip gastroplasty is an unfamiliar operation. It was performed during the mid 1980s as an alternative to more complex bariatric operations. However, the device had problems. Because of its rigid nature, it occasionally eroded into the stomach and chest. Many of these devices required removal. However, patients may occasionally present with delayed complications. We present a patient with a Gastro-clip gastroplasty, who presented years after the procedure with a functional gastric outlet obstruction.[1]
