A new potential treatment option for weight regain after bariatric surgery is endoscopic suturing with the OverStitch system. The aim of this study was to analyze the weight regain after this procedure in patients who underwent bariatric surgery. There was a significant mean reduction in weight and BMI. There was progressively an increase of Total Body Weight Loss percentage. No complications were observed during or after the procedure.
