“Sleeve gastrectomy: high incidence of weight regain and need for revision.”
Long Term follow up after Sleeve Gastrectomy as Primary Bariatric Procedure.
Abeezar I. Sarela , the primary author states :
“My recent publication: Long-term follow-up of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomies for morbid obesity (SOARD). This study reports the longest available follow-up: 8-9 years. 50% of patients have less than 50% excess weight loss. I suspect that the recent popularity of and surge in sleeve gastrectomies will translate into high incidence of weight regain and need for revisional surgery.”
