BACKGROUND Nowadays, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is one of the most widely performed bariatric procedures. Different techniques have been described to reduce the rate of complications associated with the staple line, but no consensus has been reached. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of surgical complications after LSG with three different approaches to the staple line. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective matched analysis was performed, comparing three groups of 10...

The management of morbidly obese patients with a concomitant ventral hernia (VH) is a great challenge for surgeons. There is controversy over the optimal strategy to tackle both health problems, requiring an individualized approach. Obese patients have a higher recurrence rate after hernia repair, and bariatric surgery in the presence of a VH can be difficult. As morbid obesity is related with severe comorbidities, including increased cardiovascular and anesthetic risks, some advocate for a sing...

OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of sleeve gastrectomy (SG) in super-obese patients. The secondary aim was to identify patient characteristics associated with worse SG outcomes in this group. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was carried out of our electronic prospective bariatric surgery patient database, including all patients who underwent SG between January 2007 and January 2017. The sample was divided according to the initial body mass index (BMI) (>...

Background: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is now one of the most common surgical procedures worldwide. It was initially defined for staged procedures in super or super-super obese, or in very complex patients. The primary objective of the study was to assess the safety of LSG for morbid-obese (MO, body mass index [BMI] >40 kg/m(2)) and super-morbid-obese (SMO, BMI >50 kg/m(2)) patients in terms of operative and postoperative complication rate. Methods: This study involves a retrospective...

An important percentage of the patient, undergoing primary or revisional bariatric surgery after sleeve gastrectomy, presents symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). When and how surgical reinforcement of the lower esophageal sphincter should be performed to prevent acid reflux is still controversial. Here, we describe laparoscopic ligamentum teres cardiopexy, a surgical technique that reinforces the lower esophageal sphincter and restores its competence with a new valve, in patients...

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a complicated soft tissue infection frequently associated with severe sepsis if an early medical and surgical treatment is not performed. We report two postoperative cases of severe NF after oophorectomy and colorectal resection. Because of the similarity with more benign skin infections at the early steps, clinical suspicion is crucial. Surgical exploration and resection will provide both the diagnosis confirming necrotizing infection of the fascia with vessels and...

ABSTRACTSeasonal variations have been described in humans in several variables such as sleep, mood, appetite, food preferences, or body weight. We hypothesized that these variations could also influence the decrease in body weight rate in patients submitted to body weight loss interventions. Thus, here we tested the variations of weight loss according to the time of the year the surgery took place in a group patients (n = 1322) submitted to bariatric surgery in the Hospital Universitari de la Va...

ABSTRACTSeasonality is a phenomenon that is characterized by changes over the year in sleep, mood, behaviour, appetite and body weight. In humans, seasonal variations have been found in certain var...

Obesity is becoming a global health emergency. The treatment of this chronic disease and its comorbidities is one of the most important items in the health budgets of Western countries (Stevens et al., Popul Health Metrics 10(1):22, 2012; Bult et al., Eur J Endocrinolog 158(2):135–45, 2008). Currently, the only long-term treatment proven to be effective for morbid obesity is bariatric surgery.
