Between August 2007 and November 2009, four patients benefited from laparoscopic conversion for insufficient weight loss or weight regain, mainly due to a new dietary behaviour such as sweet eating. At the time of RYGB, the mean weight and body mass index (BMI) was 118.5 ± 32.8 kg and 43.2 ± 8 kg/m(2), respectively. The mean interval time between RYGB and conversion to SG was 36.7 ± 15.6 months. At the time of conversion, the mean weight, BMI, % excess weight loss (%EWL) and % excess BMI loss (%EBMIL) was 101.7 ± 24.7 kg, 37.3 ± 6.6 kg/m(2), 27.5 ± 11.8% and 26.5 ± 12%, respectively. The procedure involved the dismantling of both anastomosis, performance of SG before restoration of gastric continuity, and new small bowel anastomosis.
