Background: Obesity may result in cardiovascular diseases, psychiatric problems and so many other diseases. Obesity surgery is the most effective treatment for obese patients that can have some complications. The aim of this study was to investigate the effective factors of Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) complications as one of the most common methods for obesity surgery.
Methods: This study was conducted in two phases. At first, the effective factors of MGB were extracted by searching previous papers indexed in Pubmed and Scopus. Then, the effective factors were given to surgeons using a questionnaire and they were asked to rank these factors based on the importance. Finally, the answers were analyzed using the mean and frequency.
Results: Some variables like age, weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), some comorbidities, the bilio-pancreatic obstruction, surgery duration, smoking status, open surgery, laboratory tests, endoscopy and sonography results, and intra operative complications were marked as important.
Conclusion: In most of the variables, the surgeon's view was in accordance with the previous studies. Considering the effective factors of MGB complications such as age, weight, BMI, bilio-pancreatic obstruction, surgery duration, smoke, malabsorption, open surgery, obesity, intra-operative complications, comorbidities (DVT, sleep apnea, CVA, pseudotumor cerebri, psychiatric problems, cardio-vascular diseases), laboratory tests (CBC, Ferritin, FBS, HbA1C,  Total Cholesterol, Alb, Vit B12, Vit D3, β-HCG), and sonography and endoscopy before the surgery can result in reducing complications and death, increasing patients’ and surgeons’ satisfaction, and improving health care.
