We aimed to make a meta-analysis regarding the effect of bariatric surgery on female sexual function. PubMed, EMBASE, and CENTRAL were searched from database inception through August 2019. Articles were eligible for inclusion if they examined the effect of bariatric surgery on obese women’s sexual function assessed by the Female Sexual Functioning Index (FSFI) or/and the Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire (PISQ-12). Twenty articles were included into meta-analysis. B...

Background The most commonly performed bariatric procedures are laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Impact of learning curves on operative outcome has been well shown, but the necessary learning curves have not been clearly defined. This study provides a systematic review of the literature and proposes a standardization of phases of learning curves for RYGB and LSG.

Background The sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has gained popularity which has resulted in a rising number of patients with T2DM to undergo this procedure. This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to compare the long-term effects of SG on T2DM remission with remission seen after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or gastric banding (GB).

Background One-anastomosis gastric bypass with band-separated gastric pouch (OAGB-BSGP) is a novel “staplerless” version of OAGB. This randomized controlled trial (RCT) compared 2-year outcomes for OAGB-BSGP and standard OAGB.

Background Over the long term, people who have undergone bariatric surgery (BS) remain overly sedentary with inadequate physical activity (PA). The purpose of this study was to apply the transtheoretical model (TTM) to (1) explore in-depth how PA is experienced years after BS and (2) identify the barriers to and facilitators of PA involved at each stage of change (SOC).

A 28-year-old female was admitted 2 years after gastric bypass limb distalization because of severe weight loss, fatigue, chronic diarrhea, massive edema, and a serum albumin of 10 g/L without proteinuria. A diagnosis of severe energy and protein malnutrition was made, and enteral tube feeding was started in combination with pancreatic enzyme supplementation every 3 h. Within 24 h after the start of tube feeding, she developed severe hyperammonemia. Tube feeding was stopped immediately, and this...

Background Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) are the two most common bariatric operations. With the implementation of enhanced recovery protocols, the use of drains should decrease.

There is a growing need for treatments for patients who would benefit from further weight loss following bariatric surgery or weight loss maintenance/long-term disease remission. Currently, therapeutic options are limited. Although largely dismissed previously, advances in weight loss pharmacotherapy now offer the possibility of achieving clinically significant weight loss. Historical comparisons drawn between the effects of medications vs surgery are generally inaccurate as novel classes of ant...

Introduction The usage of bougie devices in guiding the extent of sleeve gastrectomies has been associated with several laryngeal and pharyngeal complications. Despite these being distressing for patients, they draw little attention in current literature.
