Background. The aim of this study was to investigate patient outcomes and nutritional deficiencies following sleeve gastrectomy (SG) during a follow-up of two years. Methods. Over a period of 56 months, all consecutive patients who underwent SG were documented in this prospective, single-center, observational study. The study endpoints included operative time, complication rates, nutritional deficiencies and percentage of excess weight loss (%EWL). Results. From September 26, 2005 to May 28…

Long-term nutritional deficiencies following sleeve gastrectomy: a 6-year single-centre retrospective study
It is shown that laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy had a considerable effect on specific nutritional deficiencies in patients at 6 years post-surgery, and knowledge of micronutrient deficiencies is beneficial for both prevention and management of nutritional complications associated with SG with the administration of oral nutritional supplementation according to the patient’s needs.
Preoperative and Postoperative Assessments of Biochemical Parameters in Patients with Severe Obesity Undergoing Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Abnormal serum biochemistries indicative of micronutrient deficiencies were prevalent before laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy; reduced abnormal values were observed after surgery, likely due to an increased use of multivitamins.
Nutrient Deficiencies Before and After Sleeve Gastrectomy
One year after surgery, micronutrient deficiencies persisted or were found de novo in a considerable amount of patients, despite significant weight loss and supplementation, and significant reductions were seen only for folate and vitamin D.
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in severely obese adolescents: effects on metabolic profile.
LSG proved to be a safe and effective procedure and seems to be the new hope for the obesity epidemic.
Comparison of Nutritional Status During the First Year After Sleeve Gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
During the first year after surgery, in patients with the same WL and following the same strategy of vitamin supplementation, global nutritional status was only slightly impaired after SG and GBP, however, some nutritional parameters were specifically altered after GBP.
Evaluation of Vitamin and Trace Element Requirements after Sleeve Gastrectomy at Long Term
Vitamin D deficiency is the most prevalent long-term nutritional deficiency after sleeve gastrectomy, and about half of patients show some micronutrient deficiency at medium long term, despite supplementation.
Cross-sectional long-term micronutrient deficiencies after sleeve gastrectomy versus Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: a pilot study.
Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy as a Treatment Option for Adults with Diabetes Mellitus.
Obesity is a major factor in the worldwide rise in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus and sleeve gastrectomy has a major role in inducing significant weight loss and weight loss is maintained for at least 10 years.
Bariatric surgery in severely obese adolescents: a single-centre experience
The surgical option should continue to be exercised with extreme caution only in severely obese adolescents and done so in appropriate case results in positive outcomes, according to recent systematic reviews and meta-analyses.


Long-term Results of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy for Obesity
It appears that after 6+ years the mean excess weight loss exceeds 50%.
Third International Summit: Current status of sleeve gastrectomy.
Results of Sleeve Gastrectomy—Data from a Nationwide Survey on Bariatric Surgery in Germany
The complication rate during the first 2 years after SG in Germany is similar to that published in the literature, and an evaluation of data from a German multicenter trial is necessary to evaluate the position of SG in the bariatric algorithm.
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy as an initial weight-loss procedure for high-risk patients with morbid obesity
The staging concept of LSG followed by LRYGBP is a safe and effective surgical approach for high-risk patients seeking bariatric surgery.
Laparoscopic Reoperative Sleeve Gastrectomy for Poor Weight Loss after Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch
A repeat laparoscopic gastric sleeve resection was performed for inadequate weight loss after BPD/DS, and resulted in further weight reduction.
[Operative techniques and outcomes in metabolic surgery: sleeve gastrectomy].
In conclusion, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has now proven to be as effective as the RYGB for weight loss over a three-year period and should be accepted as one of the effective standard procedures for surgical treatment of morbid obesity.
The Magenstrasse and Mill Operation for Morbid Obesity
The Magenstrasse and Mill procedure is the simplest and most physiological gastroplasty yet described, safe, has few side-effects and leads to major and durable weight losses, similar to those produced by other types of gastro Plasty.
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) In Morbid Obesity: Review
The short-term results are very encouraging but long term results are still awaited to give this newly adopted technique its true grading in the field of bariatric surgery.
