Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty, also known as gastric endoscopic gastroplasty, is a minimally invasive, incision-free procedure that offers several advantages over other bariatric surgery techniques [1].

This procedure is becoming increasingly popular due to its simplicity and encouraging results in terms of weight loss and improved quality of life [2].

This article examines the latest data on endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and its impact on patients' quality of life, based on an in-depth review of the scientific literature.

For this analysis, we consulted scientific databases such as PubMed, Scopus, and Google Scholar to identify recent articles and studies on endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and its effects on quality of life.

The selected articles were analyzed to determine the effectiveness of endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and its impact on patients' health and quality of life.


Weight loss and improvement of comorbidities:

Several studies have shown that endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty leads to significant weight loss and improvement in obesity-related comorbidities, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea[3][4][5].

These improvements contribute to a better quality of life for patients.

Complications and management

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty has a low complication rate, including fistulas, which must be managed quickly to avoid sepsis [6].

Endoscopic management of these complications allows for faster recovery and improved quality of life for patients [7].

Follow-up and multidisciplinary management

The management of patients before and after endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty should be carried out by multidisciplinary teams in collaboration with primary care physicians[8][9].

Regular follow-up and personalized care contribute to ensuring the success of the intervention and improving patients' quality of life [10].

Psychological impact and quality of life

Patients who have undergone endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty report significant improvements in their quality of life and psychological state, particularly in terms of self-confidence, social relationships, behaviour and body satisfaction.


The latest data on endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty show that it is an effective option for weight loss and improving the quality of life of obese patients.

The low complication rates, multidisciplinary follow-up, and personalized care contribute to positive and lasting outcomes for these patients.

It is essential to continue studying this procedure to optimize its results and further improve patients' quality of life.
