CONCLUSION: There is comparable patient tolerability when balloon-retention PRG insertion is performed with or without gastropexy sutures. This study also demonstrated a trend towards fewer complications when gastropexy is utilized. However, further larger trials are required to compare complications of the two approaches for PRG insertion.
