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...

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...

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...

With the increasing worldwide prevalence of obesity, bariatric surgery is in continuous development; actually, surgery represents the most effective long-term method for treating obesity and its comorbidities. However, surgery in patients with obesity may be technically demanding for the surgeon, due to the limitations of laparoscopic instruments and the characteristics of obese patients, including hepatomegaly and the amount of intraabdominal fat. This is why, over the years, methods of minimal...

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.
