AbstractMinimal-invasive gastrectomy has been established as commonly used method for the early gastric cancer in Korea and Japan. From the first laparoscopic cancer gastrectomy in 1992 in Japan, numerous prospective randomized trials from these two countries have gained the evidence for non-inferiority or even specific benefits compared to open surgery. In Korea, the “Korean Laparoscopic Gastrointestinal Surgical Study Group” (KLASS group) founded, in 2004, successfully gained evidence not only in regards of oncological safety of laparoscopic gastrectomy, but also for the impact of different reconstruction met...
ConclusionLADG was as safe as ODG in patients who did not meet the eligibility criteria of JCOG 0912. LADG could be a standard treatment option for patients with stage I gastric cancer, regardless of their general condition.
Unfortunately, the online published article has errors in Table 2. The number “118.0” found under the column “L-IHR” and row “Time from IHR to resume activities” should be corrected to 18.0
ConclusionsGastrojejunostomy revision is a complex procedure that requires an advanced bariatric surgery skills and experience. Omental patch can be used in cases where friable tissue anastomosis leaks as a sealant along with a protective feeding gastrostomy.
ConclusionThe use of a calibration tube for creating the gastric pouch may lead to a higher %EWL and %TWL at 2-year follow-up. The standardization of the technique for LRYGB is desirable to achieve the maximum success rate in the surgical therapy of morbid obesity.
Abstract Gastric peristalsis is initiated and coordinated by an underlying bioelectrical activity, termed slow waves. High-resolution (HR) mapping of the slow waves has become a fundamental tool for accurately defining electrophysiological properties in gastroenterology, including dysrhythmias in gastric disorders such as gastroparesis and functional dyspepsia. Currently, HR mapping is achieved via acquisition of slow waves taken directly from the serosa of fasted subjects undergoing invasive abdominal surgery. Recently, a minimally invasive retractable catheter and electrode has been developed for HR mapping that...
ConclusionsLSG produces an improvement in lipid profile, with a significant increase in HDL and a decrease in LDL, triglycerides, and non-HDL-C.
Obesity is a pandemic health problem. Bariatric surgery is the only proven method for long-term effective weight loss for severe obesity [1 –4]. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a restrictive type of bariatric surgery, which is safe, has a low failure rate, requires a shorter hospital stay , and causes fewer long-term sequelae; however, it has lower efficiency for weight loss and metabolism amelioration compared wi th other bariatric surgical procedures [6,7]. The surgery involves restricting the upper stomach and creating a small pouch by using an adjustable band to ideally control patients&rsquo...
