Booth # 1000 The Steinberg Lap-Band® Introducer is designed to simplify the introduction of the Lap-Band® and minimize potential tissue damage. The guide is placed into a 10-mm port, which is then removed. This novel Introducer is then placed onto the guide and slid into the abdomen. Once the Introducer enters the abdomen the guide is removed allowing the Lap Band to be released so that the surgeon can place it around the esophageal junction with the stomach.
