Background Management of staple line dehiscence following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) varies based on local expertise and timing of presentation. We present our experience with an endoscopic suturing platform to treat patients with staple line dehiscence following LSG.
Weight loss after bariatric surgery yields important health benefits. A multitude of observational studies have investigated the association of bariatric surgery for severe obesity with the risk of cancer. However, the results were debatable. The aim of the present study was to estimate the effect of bariatric surgery on overall cancer risk. A systematic literature search was performed to identify studies evaluating the association of bariatric surgery for severe obesity with the risk of cancer....
Revisional gastric bypass (R-RYGB) surgery is utilized for the management of inadequate weight loss or weight regain observed after some cases of bariatric surgeries. Data on the mid-term effectiveness of primary gastric bypass (P-RYGB) compared to R-RYGB (e.g., post sleeve gastrectomy or gastric banding) are controversial. Retrospective chart review of all patients who received P-RYGB and R-RYGB (January 2011 - June 2015) at our center. One hundred and twenty patients who underwent P-RYGB and 3...
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a commonly performed bariatric surgery. Studies have suggested that LSG can provide effective and sustainable weight loss although most of them were conducted in Western populations. Our aim was to characterize the midterm outcome of LSG in Asians with obesity. MEDLINE and EMBASE were searched through August 2019 for studies that reported % total body weight loss (TBWL) and/or % excess weight loss (EWL) at 3 and/or 5 years among adult Asians with obesity ...
Objectives Evaluate the safety of fast track (FT) surgery program in patients undergoing primary and revisional bariatric surgery (conversion from one procedure to another); identify limiting factors for early discharge and predictive factors for readmission.
Introduction and Aim Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is a procedure in which endoscopically placed sutures involute the stomach and promote weight loss. There is limited data on the durability of these sutures.
Introduction Weight regain after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) occurs in up to 35% of patients. Revisional surgery may be applied. Conversion from RYGB to a long biliopancreatic limb (BPL) RYGB is a potential option for revisional surgery and short-term results are promising.
Obesity is a challenging condition to treat in patients with chronic liver disease (CLD). The safety and efficacy of bariatric surgery (BS) in patients with CLD is not well established. The aim of this study is to evaluate outcomes of BS in patients with CLD. Data from the National Inpatient Sample for 2012–2015, accounting for over 7 million discharges, were analyzed. All patients undergoing BS were identified using ICD-9/CPT codes. Patients were then stratified based on the presence of CLD usi...
Surgical trauma, pain and opioids can cause nausea, vomiting, ileus and increased length of hospital stay. The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the time to recovery of gastrointestinal function and the time to meet hospital discharge criteria after laparoscopic bariatric surgery with intraoperative intravenous lidocaine administration. Secondary objectives were to evaluate morphine consumption during the first 24 h and the side effects of opioids. Fifty-eight patients aged 18 to 60...
