Abstract

Objectives: Sleeve gastrectomy is one of the most popular bariatric procedures today. Following laparoscopic interventions, common complications such as bleeding, organ damage, respiratory problems and emboli development are observed. The objective of this study was to evaluate our experiences with anesthesia and postoperative complications in sleeve gastrectomy operations performed in morbid obesity surgery.
