Peer assessment of operative videos with sleeve gastrectomy to determine optimal operative technique.
Global assessments of technical skill have been associated with surgical outcomes. More detailed understanding of which specific aspects of technique combine to make the "optimal" sleeve gastrectomy are necessary to help surgeons improve their practice. In this article, the investigators described their study in which the review of de-identified videos of practicing bariatric surgeons was conducted by a minimum of 10 peer surgeons. The videos were assessed on the technical quality of 9 operative maneuvers (ie mobilization of the fundus, stapler location, and sleeve width).
