Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of the most important co-morbid conditions related with morbid obesity. Bariatric procedures are associated with significant improvement in OSA. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the effect of bariatric surgery on daytime sleepiness and quality of sleep in patients that had undergone laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
