Obesity has reached epidemic proportions worldwide. India ranks 3rd after the United States and China. The health consequences range from increased risk of premature death due to serious chronic illness like hypertension and diabetes mellitus (DM) which reduces the overall quality of life. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) produces long-lasting control of obesity as well as associated comorbidities.
Materials and methods
A prospective cohort study was conducted between the period of January 2015 and March 2016. The criteria for selection were Body mass index (BMI). 40 kg/m2 or BMI. ≥35 kg/m2 with comorbidities. All the patients were screened by a multidisciplinary team. All the patients were operated by the same surgeon to avoid any procedural biasness. Follow-up visit as per our study protocol were evaluated.
Out of 60 patients operated for morbid obesity, the weight loss is substantial and statistically significant. Excess weight loss (EWL) (in %) were 4.31, 8.14, 16.28, and 30.61% at subsequent visits at 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 12th week respectively. Except for a few minor complications which were managed conservatively, the procedure was uneventful.
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is simple, effective, and reproducible surgical method to treat morbid obesity.
