ConclusionAlthough Meckel’s diverticulitis is a rare entity, it can appear as an acute abdomen. An early diagnosis and treatment to prevent subsequent complications is essential to ensure an optimal recovery.
ConclusionWLG group did not have decreased perioperative morbidity, nor improved weight loss and comorbidity resolution 4 years after surgery. While these findings should also be confirmed by multicenter trials, they question the value of mandated WLG prior to bariatric surgery as they seem ineffective and may limit patient access to surgery.

Conclusion : LSG is a promising option for the treatment of morbid obesity and obesity-related diseases. J. Med. Invest. 66 : 289-292, August, 2019. PMID: 31656291 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONTraumatic rupture of a non-parasitic simple hepatic cyst is a very rare complication, but can lead to acute abdomen. In patients who are known to have non-parasitic simple hepatic cyst, rupture of cyst could be included in the differential diagnosis of acute abdomen.
AbstractBackgroundBariatric surgery on patients with body mass index (BMI) ≥ 50 kg/m2, historically known as superobesity, is technically challenging and carries a higher risk of complications. Bridging interventions have been introduced for weight loss before bariatric surgery in this population. This systematic review and meta-analysis aims to assess the efficacy and safety of bridging interventions before bariatric surgery in patients with BMI ≥ 50 kg/m2.MethodsMEDLINE, EMBASE, Web of Science, and Scopus were searched from database inception to September 2018. Studies were e...
AbstractBackgroundProphylactic mesh closure has only scarcely been studied to avoid extraction-site incisional hernia after laparoscopic colorectal surgery. The aim was to analyze extraction-site incisional hernia incidence after laparoscopic colorectal surgery to assess if prophylactic mesh closure should be studied.MethodsA retrospective analytic cohort study was conducted in patients who had undergone laparoscopic colorectal surgery with an extraction-site incision. Extraction-site incisional hernia was diagnosed during clinical examination or imaging. Risk factors for extraction-site incisional hernia were analyzed.Res...
ConclusionsThe laparoscopic approach was associated with earlier oral intake and a lower comprehensive complication index. It is a safe and feasible technique that confers the advantages of minimally invasive surgery. It can be considered the preferred surgical option when the surgical expertise is available.
ConclusionComparing the 5-year success rate of these two techniques, LRYGB seems to be superior to LSG, with lower weight regain and higher weight loss. The short- and long-term effects of two procedures on remission of comorbidities were comparable.
We report the case of a 26-year-old man with PWS and morbid obesity (BMI 65kg/m2) since childhood. He also suffered from uncontrolled diabetes mellitus type 2, hypertension, and obstructive sleep apnea. After an unsuccessful diet and exercise program, he opted for bariatric surgery in which laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy was performed.
