Abstract

Objective: Today, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has become the most frequently performed bariatric surgical method. One of the complications seen after LSG is trocar site hernia (TSH). There is no clear information about the rate of TSH detected radiologically after LSG. A thick abdominal wall and the failure to adequately expose the fascial defect related to this, as well as mobility limitations due to excessive subcutaneous fatty tissue, are the reasons for increased incidence of TSH.
