Abstract

Background

Sleeve gastrectomy is becoming increasingly popular within bariatric surgery. Initially introduced as a component of complex interventions and later as part of a twostage operation in high-risk patients, the procedure is now more common as one-stage operation and subject of avid scientific discussion. However, the concept of longitudinal gastric resection is not new. The procedure was already established in ulcer surgery but soon faded into insignificance. This article aims to trace the historical development of resection of the greater curvature and review the current value of sleeve gastrectomy within the spectrum of bariatric surgical procedures.

Materials and methods

Extensive review of literature of articles published in english language was conducted using the following search engines: Google, Yahoo, Medline, PubMed, Medscape, HighWire press and the SpringerLink library available at the World Laparoscopy Hospital, Gurgaon, India. Articles that matched the criteria were selected for review.

Results

Six reviews and 90 articles were selected and reviewed and analyzed to reach the conclusions.

Conclusion

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a safe and effective weight loss procedure. Resolution of comorbidity, healthrelated quality of life and food tolerance were comparable with that of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass with lower incidence of complications comparable to gastric banding. However, there is need for standardization of the procedure and long-term results are yet to be analyzed.
