Randomized Prospective Trial: Single Port Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Versus Conventional Five Port Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

This study has been withdrawn prior to enrollment.

Information provided by (Responsible Party):
St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01401426
First received: July 21, 2011
Last updated: May 18, 2016
Last verified: May 2016
  Purpose
Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy has been shown to significantly reduce weight and has been approved as a treatment of morbid obesity. The standard laparoscopic operation requires five small incisions for the introduction of instruments and the band into the patient's abdomen. The investigators have developed a technique for performing this operation through a single incision at the belly button. This study compares this method to the conventional 5-incision approach.
