The meta-analysis was planned according to PICO format: the P-population included samples of patients with a mean baseline BMI between 30 and 40 kg/m² and with a minimum follow-up time of 12 months after the endoscopic or surgical intervention; LSG was considered as the I-intervention performed on the population involved and ESG was identified as the C-comparison; the main O-outcome evaluated was the difference between the procedures in terms of efficacy (expressed by the percentage of Excess of Weight Loss (%EWL) at 12 months); the secondary O-outcome was the difference between the procedures in terms of safety (expressed by the rate of peri-procedural major and/or minor adverse events).
