Abstract

Background Weight regain following bariatric surgery is not uncommon. Safe, effective weight loss treatment up to 1 year has been reported with the closed-loop gastric electrical stimulation (CLGES) system. Continuous recording of eating and activity behavior by onboard sensors is one of the novel features of this closed-loop electrical stimulation therapy, and may provide improved long-term weight maintenance by enhancing aftercare. Methods Four centers participating in a 12-month prospective multicenter randomized study monitored all implanted partici- pants (n = 47) up to 24 months after laparoscopic implantation of a CLGES system. Weight loss, safety, quality of life (QOL), and cardiac risk factors were analyzed. Results Weight regain was limited in the 35 (74%) participants remaining enrolled at 24 months. Mean percent total body weight loss (%TBWL) changed by only 1.5% between 12 and 24 months, reported at 14.8% (95% CI 12.3 to 17.3) and 13.3% (95% CI 10.7 to 15.8), respectively. The only serious device-/procedure-related adverse events were two elective system replacements due to lead failure in the first 12 months, while improvements in QOL and cardiovascular risk factors were stable thru 24 months. Conclusion During the 24 month follow-up, CLGES was shown to limit weight regain with strong
