Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) are the foremost commonly performed bariatric procedure worldwide. This study suggests that LSG is an alternative to LRYGB.

The study aimed to compare the short- and mid-term outcome of both procedures. It was published in the Indian Journal of Surgery.

An observational prospective study includes 100 patients with obesity undergoing LRYGB (n = 50) and LSG (n = 50). Patients had their regular follow-up at 1, 3, 6, 12, and 18 months. They evaluated operative time, length of hospital stay, early and late complications, weight loss, and comorbidity resolution.

--There was a significant difference between LRYGB and LSG in operative time.

--There were no significant differences in length of hospital stay, complications, and reoperation.

--No conversion and no mortality were reported. Patient compliance was 100% at 18 months.

--No significant differences were found in excess weight loss percentage and resolution of comorbidities up to 18 months between both groups.

Conclusively, in the short- and mid-term results, LSG is comparable to LRYGB in terms of safety and efficacy, so LSG is an alternative to LRYGB.
