Y Purpose Retraction of the left lobe of the liver (LLL) is an important step in bariatric surgical procedures. A good liver retraction will both facilitate the operation and reduce complications. The aim of the study is to identify patients with large LLL with preoperative anthropometric and laboratory data, and to reveal complications due to large LLL.
