Abstract : The laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy treatment has become the most prevalent method for treating obesity in the United States and around the globe. Those with morbid obesity might expect a better quality of life as well as a lower risk of illness and death as a result of this treatment method. In patients undergoing sleeve gastrectomy, we hope to find a link between excess weight loss and the patient's preoperative BMI. As well as their relationship: From January 1, 2016, to December 31, 2018, we enrolled 80 patients who had laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in the surgical department of AL Imamian AL Kadimian Medical City. Pre- and post-operative BMI measurements with excess weight loss calculations, as well as information on the patient's family history of obesity, are all collected through the use of questionnaires. Patients are divided into two categories based on their BMIs (more than 45 and less than 45). 80-person sample, 69 (86.3%) of them were female. Males made up the majority, with 11 (13.8 percent) ranging in age from 18 to 65, with the most common range being 20-40 years (79.2 percent). At 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery, the mean weight of patients was (86.9817.208SD) compared to the mean weight of patients before surgery (128.13 25.65SD). It was also discovered that the mean body mass index before and after surgery were (48.488.515SD) and (336.318SD). (28.80+3.653SD) in patients with a BMI 45 and (34.33+4.667SD) in patients with a BMI > 45, there was a significant correlation (p=0.001). In patients with a BMI of less than 45, the mean excess body weight loss percentage (EBWL percent) than doubled (69.51+SD 8.809), with a significant correlation (p=0.001). Patients who undergo sleeve gastrectomy are more likely to lose weight if their preoperative BMI is higher than their postoperative BMI. Sleeve-gastrectomy patients' excess weight loss and preoperative body mass index are examined in this study.
