Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a validated procedure for the surgical treatment of morbid obesity. The aim of this study was to evaluate the morbidity related to sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) performed in obese and cirrhotic patients compared to obese and non-cirrhotic patients. The study included all patients with cirrhosis who underwent LSG to treat associated morbid obesity in the period from January 2010 to January 2019 of the CNPQ Research Group linked to the Federal University of Maranhão. It had approximately 200 patients divided into the groups LSG Cirrhosis positive (+) and LSG Cirrhosis negative (-). The present study had as a result that the etiology of cirrhosis was related to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis in 100% of the cases, besides comparisons of the two groups in question. It was concluded which cases can be performed LSG, but also its perioperative risks in the situations of the patient presenting or not cirrhosis related to steatohepatitis.
