All patients were evaluated preoperatively by the multidisciplinary team. Mean age was 40. Sex ratio was 83 % female 17 % male and mean preoperative BMI was 47,13 kg/m2.
Results: All patients underwent laparoscopic treatment. The average hospital stay was 24 hours. Operative time average was 40 minutes. The average post-operative % EWL at one, five and 10 years was 39.7 %, 56.9 %, and 34,12 %. Follow up was, 75 % at five years and 70 % at 10 years. Acute complications: one patient had laceration of the liver, and another developed port infection. Late complications were; erosion (0.9%), slippeage (1,3%).
