Surgery of obesity has constantly grown over the past twenty years. Several surgical approaches are proposed, including the Sleeve Gastrectomy. It is technically simple, does not involve anastomoses and it is becoming popular. However, it is still subject to controversy. We intend, through a review of the litterature, to study the technical particularities and the results of the Sleeve Gastrectomy to clarify its role and its place in bariatric surgery.
