Comment on: Outcomes of same-day discharge sleeve gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Published:October 13, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.soard.2022.10.011
      Once believed unattainable, same-day-discharge (SDD) surgery for sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is now a reality. The capabilities to perform such operations on an outpatient basis have improved access to care in certain environments when healthcare systems may be strapped for resources. The challenges posed during the first 2 years of the COVID-19 pandemic have hastened the utilization of this strategy as outpatient surgical centers have often been the only option when hospital beds have been scarce [

      ]. At present, studies evaluating the feasibility and safety of SDD have become very important to guide the practice of metabolic and bariatric surgery (MBS). The authors of this review and meta-analysis should be congratulated for this very well-written article and for the sound methodology and highly refined statistical work [

          Length of stay after bariatric surgery has progressively shortened. Same-day discharge (SDD) has been reported for the 2 most common bariatric procedures, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG). The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and success of SDD following SG and RYGB. Systematic literature search on SDD after bariatric surgery was conducted in Medline, Cochrane library, Google Scholar, and Embase. SDD was defined as discharging the patient during the day of the bariatric operation, without an overnight stay.
