BackgroundNonalcoholic fatty liver disease is associated with morbid obesity. Liver biopsy is the reference standard for the diagnosis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. It is unclear whether the macroscopic liver appearance correlates with the histopathologic findings. Our objective was to determine the relationship between the intraoperative liver appearance and the histopathologic findings during laparoscopic bariatric surgery at a tertiary medical center.
