Thank you for giving us the opportunity to reply to the letter by Drs Oefelein and Okerson concerning our study that was published in Archives.1 Regrettably, the message of our study apparently did not come across. We did not condemn laparoscopic adjustable band gastroplasty (LAGB). We wanted to stress the importance of a better follow-up policy.
