Background: Prevalence of obesity in the world, in both developed and developing countries, is growing rapidly. Bariatric surgery is now accepted as the treatment for morbid obesity.

Objective: This study compares laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy's effectiveness (LSG) with the most common bariatric surgery, laparoscopic Roux-en-Y (LRYGB) gastric bypass.

  Methods: A systematic review was performed using relevant search data bases, including Cochrane library, PubMed, Magi ran, Iranmedex, SID and Trip database, with no time limit. Data bases were searched until July 2014 for randomized control trials. The studied population included people aged between 18–60 years, with BMI≥35 and at least one obesity-related disease, or people with BMI≥40. BMI change, as the research outcome, was investigated at least in one-year follow-up period. Cochrane criteria were used to assess quality of studies. The results were extracted from the articles.

  Results: In total, 384 articles were obtained in the search; six RCTs were included in this study. There was no significant difference between the two laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedures in BMI, and both groups were similar in weight loss CI [-.1.31, 0.43], p=0.32.

  Conclusion: The two procedures of bariatric surgery are effective and reliable treatments. Performing more trial studies with greater sample size and longer follow-up period for making final decision in selecting a certain surgical procedure is essential.
