Single-laparoscopic incision transabdominal surgery sleeve gastrectomy.


Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy has recently been added to the list of appropriate weight loss operations presently performed by bariatric surgeons. The sleeve gastrectomy is routinely performed using five and up to seven laparoscopic trocars with enlargement of one of the trocar sites for extraction of the gastric specimen. We describe a case of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy performed through a single laparoscopic incision.
