Objective:To evaluate the effect of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on growth in children younger than 14 years in a matched control study. Background:Debatable concerns result in denying young children access to bariatric surgery. Methods:Our multidisciplinary program database was used to extract data of young nonsyndromic children (age ⩽14 years) who underwent LSG. Patients were age, sex, and height z-score matched with those on nonsurgical weight management, and their results were… Expand

LSG is a safe therapeutic option that can be performed in adolescents without mortality and all future efforts should now be focused on the evaluation of the long-term outcomes of LSG in the pediatric population. Expand
Outcomes of Bariatric Surgery in Older Versus Younger Adolescents
TLDR
