After laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), early recognition and treatment of uncommon complications are important. A 36-year-old man who had undergone LAGB presented at our clinic with weight gain of 14 kg during the prior 6 months. During investigation, detachment of the connecting tube from the port and migration of this tube into the jejunal wall were found. The detached port was replaced with a new port, and laparoscopically-assisted jejunorraphy was performed.
