The article describes experiences with the standardized fully stapled laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (FS-LRYGB) on 3,145 patients and its influence on the 30-day morbidity and mortality. Patients in the study had mean age of 39.2 years, with mean operative time of 63 minutes and mean hospital stay of 3.35 days. Results revealed that one patient died of pneumonia and 5.8% had post-operative complications. The study suggests that the systematic approach to full standardization of the procedure contributed to low mortality.
