quired follow-up surgery.

"In this study, gastric banding proved to be an effective intervention leading to a substantial and durable reduction in obesity and to better health," wrote Dr. Paul E. O'Brien and colleagues at Monash University and the Centre for Adolescent Health, Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne.

They said that teens and parents "must understand the importance of careful adherence to recommended eating behaviors and of seeking early consultation if symptoms of reflux, heartburn or vomiting occur. As importantly, they should be in a setting in which they can maintain contact with health professionals who understand the process of care. This study indicates that, in such a setting, the laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding process can achieve important improvements in weight, health and quality of life in severely obese adolescents," the researchers concluded.

The study appears in the February 10 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
