INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic greater curvature placation (LGCP) is a new restrictive bariatric procedure with a similar restrictive mechanism as laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), which has no potential risk of leak. Aim of the study was to compare long-term results of LSG and LGCP.
METHODS AND PROCEDURES: Multicenter prospective randomized study enrolled 54 patients with morbid obesity. They were allocated either to LGCP group (n=25) or LSG group (n=27). Main exclusion criteria were: ASA > III, age > 75, BMI>65 kg/m2. There were 40 women and 12 men, mean age was 42,6±6,8 years (range, 35-62). Data on the operation time, complications, hospital stay, body mass index loss (BMIL), percentage of excess weight loss (%EWL), loss of appetite and improvement of comorbidities were collected.
RESULTS: After 4 years postoperatively, mean %EWL was 74,4 ± 15,5 in the LSG group and 24,1 ± 13,7 in the LGCP group (p<0,01). The comorbidities including diabetes, sleep apnea and hypertension, improved in LSG group much more than in LGCP group.
CONCLUSIONS: Long-term results showed that LSG is better than LGCP in terms of weight loss and improvement of comorbidities.
