Severe hypocalcemia complicating cervical endocrine surgery in patients with gastric bypass can constitute a major concern. When usual therapies fail to maintain calcemia within the normal range without secondary adverse events, reversal of the bariatric surgery should be considered. We herein report the outcomes of laparoscopic revision of bariatric surgeries in two patients suffering from severe resistant hypocalcemia following cervical surgery, requiring in one case recombinant PTH administra...

Purposes Biliopancreatic diversion could improve type 2 diabetes mellitus. Our aim was to investigate the effects of biliary jejunostomy on the improvement of glucose.
This paper aims to retrospectively evaluate the feasibility, safety, and standardization for both consecutive primary and revisional SILS bariatric surgeries, and to analyze incisional hernia’s prevalence, technical improvements, and limiting factors. A retrospective database review was undertaken involving, in Part I (Belgium), 290 consecutive SILS, including 80.68% primary bariatric surgeries, and 19.32% revisional gastric bypass, followed in Part II (Lebanon), by 40 selective primary SILS. Tr...

Purpose White adipose tissue (WAT) browning plays a crucial role in energy metabolism. However, it remains unclear whether WAT browning is involved in the adipose reduction following sleeve gastrectomy (SG). Adiponectin is upregulated after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. The role of adiponectin in SG was further investigated in the current study.

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 ...

Background The value of the routine histopathologic examination of resected gastric remnants following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) remains to be controversial. This study aimed to determine whether the routine histopathologic examination of gastric specimens is necessary for all patients undergoing LSG if upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGIE) plus multiple biopsies are performed routinely during the preoperative work-up.

The ASMBS recommends that patients should be provided with educational materials to improve informed consent about bariatric surgery. Massive online open courses (MOOCs) are learning sources which are free, online, and available to people in remote situations. A French language MOOC regarding preparation for obesity surgery targets patients, as well as HCP, and people curious about this treatment. The patients’ knowledge and skills after completion of the 5-week learning sessions (evaluated with...

Backgrounds Optimal pain management in bariatric patients is crucial for early recovery. This study aims to evaluate the effects of magnesium and ketamine combination on morphine consumption after open bariatric surgery (primary outcome), as well as on postoperative pain scores and occurrence of side effects.
