Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent of Subjects Who Attain Clinically Successful Weight Loss of ≥30% Excess Weight Loss (EWL) at 1 Year Post LAP-BAND Implantation. Percent EWL Was Defined as Weight Loss Divided by Excess Weight Multiplied by 100. [ Time Frame: One year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • % Weight Loss [ Time Frame: Baseline through 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent weight loss was defined as weight loss divided by baseline weight, multiplied by 100. Weight loss was equal to baseline weight minus the follow-up visit weight. Excess weight = baseline weight minus ideal weight, where ideal weight was determined based on a BMI of 25 kg/m2.

  • Change in Comorbid Conditions Related to Obesity [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percent of subjects whose baseline comorbid condition of Type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, and hypertension resolved (i.e., was rated as "none" on a severity scale of none, mild, moderate, or severe) 12 months after implantation.

  • Change in Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline score on the IWQOL-Lite Total Score, where 0 is worst and 100 is best.
