Introduction: Obesity is one of the most important health issues in industrialized nations. In the case of morbid obesity (excess weight of more than 40% ideal weight), surgical treatment has shown to be efficacious in the long term. Material and methods: Retrospective study which included 22 patients from January 2006 to January 2009 in the American British Cowdray Medical Center, which had a sleeve gastrectomy performed. The variables age, gender, body mass index, percentage of excess weight loss and morbimortality were documented. Results: 22 patients where operated on during the period established. 27.3% male and 72.7% female. The predominant group of age was between 31 and 40 years of age. The average body mass index was between 34 and 60.18 kg/m2; 2 patients presented associated comorbidities (hypertension and diabetes). The average surgical time was 75 min to 105 min. No mortality was documented. Conclusions: Sleeve gastrectomy is a safe surgical procedure which is effective in the short term, with a low rate of complications and mortality.

Key words: Sleeve gastrectomy, overweight, obesity.
