TEUBER S, Cristóbal; VIDAL A, Hugo; OYANEDEL Q, Roberto  and  O´BRIEN S, Andrés. ROLE OF ABDOMINAL COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY IN THE EVALUATION OF LAPAROSCOPIC SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY TECHNIQUE AND ITS COMPLICATIONS. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.2, pp.70-74. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082010000200006.

Bariatric surgery has developed considerably over recent years due to the progressive increase in obesity worldwide. The laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a new restrictive technique, with promising initial outcomes. CT images play an important role in postoperative evaluation as well as in complication management in patients undergoing this surgical technique. Here we review the role of abdominal computed tomography in the study of potential complications.

Keywords : Bariatric surgery; Complications; Obesity; Sleeve gastrectomy.
