abstract

  • LAGB surgery was associated with 44.4% excess weight loss at 12 months, accompanied by a 33.7% improvement in apnea-hypopnea index as well as a reduction in leptin levels by 31.7% in this group. An association between ghrelin and mean oxygen saturation was seen and deserves further investigation.
