Objective To explore the effect of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on obesity and its comorbidities.Method The literatures about LSG in the treatment of obesity and its comorbidities were collected and summarized.Results LSG could not only effectively reduce the weight of patients with obesity, but also obviously alleviate comorbidities related to obesity, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, polycystic ovary syndrome, essential hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and so on.Conclusions LSG has a definite and effective long-term weight loss effect, which is equal to other common weight loss methods. It has been recognized by more and more patients and clinicians because it has advantages of simple operation, safety, high efficiency and fewer complications. However, therapeutic effects of some comorbidities, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, are still controversial and need further tobe studied.
