Background: Thirty percent of school age teenagers are obese in Chile. Aim: To assess the short and long term results of gastric banding among obese adolescents. Material and methods: Prospective evaluation of gastric banding procedures performed to 21 teenagers aged 13 to 19 years (15 females). Results: Mean body mass index of patients ranged from 31 to 51 kg/m2. Mean operative time and hospital stay were 60 minutes 1.9 days respectively. No patient died. Two bands had to be withdrawn after six months due to displacement. A 54% weight loss was obtained at 12 months of follow up and 90% of complications of obesity improved at 6 months. Conclusions: Gastric banding is a safe and effective surgical treatment for obesity in adolescents
