Background: Few studies have been published on histopathological findings in patients who underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). However, no study has been published from Jordan, addressing the main histopathological findings for patients who underwent this procedure. Objective: This study aims to identify the patterns of gastric pathology among patients underwent laproscopic sleeve gastrectomy in Jordan. Materials and Methods: A retrospective review of histopathological results was performed for 150 patients who underwent LSG at Jordan University Hospital from 2008 to 2012, performed by a single surgeon. All the specimens were examined at the Pathology Department of Jordan University Hospital. Results: The average age of patients was 34.6 years and mean body mass index (BMI) was 45.1. Females represented 79.3% of all patients. Chronic gastritis was found in140 patients (93.3%), and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) was found in 51.3% of patients. Conclusion: In Jordan, chronic gastritis is most common in obese patients who underwent LSG. This finding supports previously published papers that focus on the importance of examining specimens postoperatively, also addressing a possible relation to the geographical area.
