    Aim: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has markedly evolved for the management of morbid obesity; The dissection complications is the main concern. GastrisailTM is a recently released gastric positioning system technology aiming to facilitate better control of potential surgical complications. In this work, we evaluate the GastrisailTM positioning system use, with its impact on the early surgical outcome. Methods: Retrospective comparative study of GastrisailTM Gastric positioning system comparing its use in 20 patients against 20 patients had sleeve gastrectomy without its use with assessment of the effectiveness and impact on the operative and early postoperative outcomes. Results: Patients’ characteristics in (Group A) 16 (80%) were females and 4 (20%) were males, age was (Mean 33.75/ SD 6.48), BMI (Mean 43/ SD 3.97), while in (Group B) 13 (65%) were females, and 7 (35%) were males, age (Mean 37.35/ SD 4.36), BMI (Mean 44.19/ SD 4.06), Mean operative time was 140 Min. and 162.6 Min. Mean gastric dissection in both groups was 24.9 and 37.3Min., mean gastric stapling time was 32.2 and 37.4 Min respectively. Number of ports used was 4 ports in 14 patients (70%) and 5 ports in 6 patients (30%) for (group A), 5 in 18 patients (90%) and 6 in 2 patients (10%) in (Group B), number of needed stapling reloads (60 mm) was 5 in 11patients (55%), 6 in 8 patients (40%), 7 in one patient (5%) (group A), and 5 in 4 patients (20%), 6 r in 13 patients (65%) and 7 in 3 patient (15%) in (group B). Intraoperative bleeding from solid organ injury in 2 cases in (Group A) and 5 cases in (Group B) (P value < 0.01). Conclusion: Despite the added cost of the use of GastrisailTM Gastric positioning system, the early outcomes push the use of such device to ensure safer surgery. However, larger randomized studies are required.
