Background Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is one of the most performed bariatric surgeries, although its safety as a 1-day surgery is not yet approved. Patients and methods An analysis of a prospectively collected bariatric surgery data, in Menoufia University Hospitals was conducted between February 2016 and August 2017. There were120 patients who underwent LSG; 96 (80%) patients were operated as a 1-day surgery (hospital stay<12 h). Results All procedures were primary LSG performed on 82 women and 14 men, with a mean age (±SD) of 29.2±13.5 years. Mean±SD preoperative BMI was 45.4±3.8 kg/m2. Operative time was 49.8±9.6 min (mean±SD). There were no deaths. All patients were discharged home on the same day of the surgery. There were one (1.04%) case of gastric staple line leak, three (3.12%) of intra-abdominal bleeding, and one (1.04%) case of gastric stenosis. All patients went well. Conclusion LSG can be performed as a 1-day surgery in selected patients, with no complications.
