Objective: In this study, we aimed to assess the perioperative and postoperative results of the patients who underwent bariatric surgery.
Methods: After obtaining approval, a retrospectively designed observational study was conducted. All adult patients who underwent laparoscopic gastric plication, sleeve gastrectomy, or roux-en-Y anastomosis between January 2011 and May 2013 were included.
Results: A total of 104 patients were included in the study period: 49 (47.1%) underwent laparoscopic roux-en-Y anastomosis, 44 (42.3%) underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, and 11 (10.6%) underwent laparoscopic gastric plication. The present study showed a mortality rate of 1.9% (n = 2, one after Roux-en-Y anastomosis operation, and the other one after gastric plication).
Conclusion: The anesthesia methods and approaches have no association with morbidity and mortality in such procedures of bariatric surgery indicated in the present study.
