CONTRERAS P, JUAN EDUARDO et al. Laparoscopic gastric plication, a new bariatric procedure: report of one case. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2011, vol.63, n.4, pp.399-403. ISSN 0718-4026. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262011000400011.
Bariatric surgery is an effective treatment for morbid obesity. Various techniques have been developed with different outcomes and complications. A new technique with promising results recently described in the literature: the gastric plication, which would not have the complications of using mechanical suture and would imply a reduction of costs. We report the first case in Chile under this technique.
