Restrictive procedures as vertical gastroplasty and adjustable gastric banding (AGB) are the most frequently performed operations worldwide in those patients whose BMI is <50, while sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has proved as the best procedure in super obese patients.4 Most of these procedures are performed laparoscopically now a days.
