The article discusses a study that evaluated the safety and efficacy of laparoscopic sleeve gasrtrectomy (LSG) for super morbid obesity in patients with minimal body mass index (BMI) of lesser than 50 or greater or equal to 50. Results revealed that patients with greater or equal to 50 BMI obtained good outcomes but weight loss reached a plateau at 9 months post-surgery. Post operative complications included leakage, bleeding, stricture and peritonitis in one patient. The study suggests that sleeve surgery is feasible and safe for super morbid obesity.
