Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy versus Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery for Treatment of Morbid Obesity Regarding Pattern of Postoperative Weight Loss

Muhammad Salah Ahmad, Sameh Abdullah Maaty and Sherif Morad Gerges


Background: In people with morbid obesity and comorbidities, surgical treatment for obesity (bariatric surgery) is the only therapeutic approach linked with clinically substantial and reasonably persistent weight reduction. Aim and objectives: Indications, complications, postoperative weight reduction, and postoperative quality of life were compared and contrasted between laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and laparoscopic mini gastric bypass, two significant surgical methods for treatment of morbid obesity. Conclusion: Both the LSG and the LRYGB have been shown to have comparable short- and medium-term outcomes in terms of the resolution of diabetes and the loss of excess weight. Even though there are not many published data, long-term studies at 5 years and beyond suggest that EBWL is more than 50 %.
