Bariatric surgery has been shown to improve fertility in women. In recent years, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, a restrictive procedure, has become the most frequently utilized bariatric procedure. However, current recommendations regarding the care of pregnant women after bariatric surgery are based on studies with patients who underwent laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. Therefore, the authors of the present study performed a review of pregnancies among patients who underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and related maternal and perinatal outcomes.
