Abstract

It has come to our attention that the 2019 article 'Long-term follow-up after sleeve gastrectomy (LGS) versus Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) versus one-anastomosis gastric bypass: A prospective randomized comparative study of weight loss and remission of comorbidities' by Ruiz-Tovar et al was retracted in March 2021 due to identified errors in their data transcription [1]. This study was one of five randomized controlled trials included in our systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating five-year weight loss outcomes after these procedures, which was published in SLEPT in 2020 [2]. Given that it represents 40.8% of the total number of patients in our analysis (LVSG=200/520; LRYGB=200/508) we felt it prudent to reassess our results and conclusions in view of the retraction.
