Staple-line Reinforcement During Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Using Three Different Techniques: a Randomized Trial
The main drawback of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is the severity of post-operative complications. Staple line reinforcement (SLR) is strongly advocated.

Staple line reinforcement during sleeve gastrectomy
The aim of this study was to prospectively and randomly compare three different techniques of SLR during LSG: oversewing (group A), buttressed transection with a polyglycolide acid and trimethylene carbonate (group B) and staple-line roofing with a gelatin fibrin matrix (group C).
