Description
Introduction : The number of patients who undergo laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has been increasing. Department of Surgery, Tokushima University performed the first LSG in 2013. The aim of this study was to report the results of the initial ten cases who underwent a LSG. Patients and methods : Ten obese patients : five males and five females ; age range from thirty-three years to fifty-six years (mean age 42.2 years) ; mean body mass index (BMI) 50.3 ; five with diabetes ; nine with hypertension (HT) ; four with hyperlipidemia (HL) ; eight with sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) who underwent LSG were enrolled in this study. The data was analyzed retrospectively and included short- and long-term outcomes. Results : There were no post-operative complications in this study. The %EWL at three and six months and one year post-operative were 44.2%, 50.2% and 48.6% respectively. In three months post-operative the non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) had improved transaminase (AST/ALT), liver to spleen ratio in plain CT value. Improvements were also evident in the obesity-related diseases : diabetes 80% (4/5) ; HT 67% (6/9) ; HL 75% (3/4) ; and SAS 88% (7/8). Conclusion : LSG is a promising option for the treatment of morbid obesity and obesity-related diseases.
