The aim of this study is to determinate the feasibility of the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, a bariatric surgery i.e. a surgery as a treatment for obesity, could be proposed as a Day-Case surgery.

Condition Intervention
Procedure: Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Feasibility of Day Case Management by Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy for Obesity: a Pilot Study

Further study details as provided by Centre Hospitalier Universitaire, Amiens:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • unexpected admission rate [ Time Frame: the day following the surgery ]
    the unexpected admission rate corresponds to the number of overnight hospitalization i.e. the number of patients not treated considering a Day-Case Surgery.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • readmission rate [ Time Frame: one year ]
    the readmission rate is defined as the number of readmission with conventional hospitalization

  • unexpected consultation rate [ Time Frame: one year ]
    the unexpected consultation rate corresponds to the number of consultations after the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy because of a postoperative outcome (adverse event, pain...)

  • reoperation rate [ Time Frame: one year ]
  • overall length of stay [ Time Frame: one year ]
    the overall length of stay corresponds to the duration of all hospitalizations i.e. between the surgical procedure and the end of follow up.

  • per operative outcomes [ Time Frame: one year ]
    the per operative outcomes include each event observed during the surgical procedure

  • postoperative outcomes [ Time Frame: one year ]
    the postoperative outcomes include all outcomes reported during the follow-up period

  • efficiency of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy [ Time Frame: six months ]
    the efficiency of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is evaluated with the BAROS questionnaire

Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: May 2011
Study Completion Date: May 2013
Primary Completion Date: May 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Procedure: Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

the operative technique consists in few steps:

  • position of 4 trocars and insertion of a nasogastric tube
  • dissection and mobilization of the greater curvature of the stomach
  • preparation of the stomach for division
  • gastric partition
  • extraction of the gastric remnant
  • postoperative surveillance

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the patients with morbid obesity requiring a surgical approach by Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy could be operated according to a "day-case surgery" modality.

The sequence of this study is the following:

  1. patients consultation for bariatric management: during this consultation, the investigator is looking for exclusion criteria and prescribes laboratory tests.
  2. medical records of each patient are reviewed by an obesity-related staff: Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is proposed.
  3. during a second consultation, the surgeon informed the patient about the proposition of the staff and his potential inclusion in this study
  4. after obtained his consent, the surgical procedure is planned and Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is done in the Day-Case Surgery Unit.
  5. the following day the surgery, a nurse calls the patient to identify a potential postoperative outcome (nausea, vomiting, uncontrolled pain...)
  6. the 8th postoperative day, a consultation is done with laboratory tests and dietary follow-up.
  7. follow-up consultations are scheduled at 3, 6 and 12 months to evaluate the efficiency of the surgery procedure.
