Bariatrics
In brief: Nausea, not pain
Endoluminal plication is only appropriate as part of an investigational study.
Downsides include: ulceration, trapped food, injury to adjacent tissue, inability to offer salvage procedures, non-reversability, and lack of long-term data. There is no evidence that the plication reduces the hunger hormone (ghrelin) which is so important in sleeve, bypass.
