There are differences in the levels of inflammation mediators, lipids, and formed elements of the blood in morbidly obese patients compared with individuals of normal weight. In the current study, the change in these parameters was determined in patients who achieved weight loss by undergoing laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) by comparing preoperative, and early (3 months) and late (12 months) postoperative values.
