Prior studies have demonstrated a correlation between surgical skill and complication rates after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. However, the impact of surgical skill on a similar but less technically challenging procedure such as sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is unknown.

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy represents the most performed bariatric procedure in France. Staple line leak is the major short-term complication of the procedure. Patients with persistent fistula af...
A proportion of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy patients experience symptoms of regurgitation and epigastric pain postoperation. The appearance of gastric sleeve contractions has been documented but i...
We aimed to evaluate the effect of pregnancy timing after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on maternal and fetal outcomes.
Dumping syndrome is a well-known side effect of laparoscopic gastric bypass (LRYGB), and it is commonly believed that dumping syndrome is less likely to occur after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LS...
There are many reports on short-term outcomes following sleeve gastrectomy, which demonstrate that it has comparable efficacy to gastric bypass. However, there are very few long-term comparative repor...
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a technically simple popular bariatric operation with acceptable results. Leaks can occur in long staple lines; therefore, variable reinforcement methods...
The incidence of obesity is steadily rising. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is an innovative approach to the surgical management of morbid obesity. We will be discussing the effect...
Laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG) is a common surgery in the surgical trainees. However, there is no assessment system to measuring the surgical skill of surgical trainees. The novel s...
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is one of the most popular bariatric surgery in the world. The most important complication about this surgery that the leakage from the stapler line because...
Prospective randomized clinical trial aiming to compare laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) with primary outcome on excess weight loss, and secondary o...
Excision of the whole (total gastrectomy) or part (subtotal gastrectomy, partial gastrectomy, gastric resection) of the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.
Process of evaluating the health of a patient and determining if they are healthy enough for surgery.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
