Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. introduces the REALIZE™ Adjustable Gastric Band-C, a new gastric band with a streamlined design that eases placement and has an expanded adjustment range that can accommodate larger patients. The REALIZE Band-C has the same clinically proven high-volume, low-pressure system as the original REALIZE Band, but offers additional features, including:

  • A 14 percent greater stoma adjustment range to accommodate larger patients. 
  • A width of 23 mm which, according to the company, makes it the widest gastric band available and potentially reduces the risk of band slippage.
  • An unlockable/relockable closing mechanism that allows intra-operative repositioning.
  • A removable band extender with a pre-lock position to ease gastric band placement and accommodate multiple locking techniques and provide greater surface area to grasp.
  • Radiopaque band and tubing to enhance visualization under fluoroscopy.
  • Removable 1-way valve to maintain balloon evacuation during gastric band preparation.
  • Patient access to the REALIZE mySUCCESS™ program, a Web-based tool to help facilitate positive long-term outcomes for bariatric patients.
