Aim: The aim of our study was to evaluate the impact of sleeve gastectomy on weight loss 6 months after surgery.
Methodology: This was a prospective study including 30 obese patients undergoing sleeve gastrectomy. Their weight,height, BMI, fat mass index and waist circumfernce, were measured at baseline and 6 months after surgery.
Results: Mean patient age was 36.77±7.82 .80% of the study patients were women. There were significant changes in all anthropometric measurments before and after surgery. Average excess weight and average excess BMI lost at 6 months were respectively 43.53 and 50.37%.There was a significant association between excess weight lost and respectively age,preoperative BMI,preoperative fat mass index and preopeartive waist circumfence.
Conclusion: Our data suggest that sleeve gastrectomy is an effective procedure in morbidly obese patients that leads to an important weight loss.
