Histopathology Findings in Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

ConclusionMost of the findings are non-significant and can be predicted if UGIE plus multiple biopsies is routinely included in the bariatric work-up with significant cost reduction. In those patients who had a significant finding prior to the surgery or intraoperatively, the pathological examination of the specimen is recommended.

ConclusionThese findings indicate that acute aerobic exercise elicits a higher elevation in plasma level of inflammatory ci-miRNAs in obese than normal-weight individuals, irrespective of cardiorespiratory fitness and indicator of metabolic syndrome (HOMA-IR).

This study aim to investigate the lipolytic and anti-adipogenic activity of crude extracts from ZC on in vitro cultures of the mouse adipocyte cell-model, 3T3-L1. Dry rhizome powder was extracted with absolute ethanol and boiled-water. On the exposed pre-adipocytes to the extracts, cytotoxicity was not detected by using the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. Lipid content and glycerol release were assessed using Oil Red-O and a commercial Adipolysis Assay kits respectively. The extracts exhibited no significant lipolytic activity on the exposed mature-adipocytes, in serial dilutions r...

ReinkeAbstractBackgroundSurgical follow-up allows patients to discuss pathology and preventative maintenance. Multiple factors impact patients’ compliance with surgical follow-up. We hypothesized that increased travel time would be associated with lack of post-discharge surgical follow-up.MethodsRetrospective analysis identified patients undergoing laparoscopic appendectomy or laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Descriptive statistics and logistic regression assesse...

ConclusionsDuring early infancy, feeding practices differed among caregivers by household food security status. Further research is needed to examine whether these practices are associated with increased risk of obesity and obesity-related morbidity.

We report a case of a pyomyoma in which in-bag morcellation allowed for a total laparoscopic hysterectomy instead of laparotomy, which has been recognized as the standard of care to avoid the spread of infection from morcellation. A 45-year-old multiparous woman presented with sepsis, pelvic pain, and leukocytosis at 1 month after undergoing uterine artery embolization for symptomatic uterine leiomyoma. Pelvic computed tomography scan revealed a 9-cm suspected pyomyoma. A total hysterectomy was performed using a laparoscopic approach with in-bag morcellation. The intervention was successful, and the postoperative course wa...

JensenSummaryBackgroundEndoscopic procedures are vital to gastrointestinal disease diagnosis and management, but risk infection transmission. In Australia, endoscopes undergo monthly-to-quarterly microbiological testing, to prevent patient infection. Endoscopes are used more frequently, meaning contamination may not be detected by this surveillance before infection transmission occurs.AimTo evaluate the use of adenosine triphosp...

ConclusionIn the near future, OCT could be used as an additional tool during bronchoscopic or endoscopic interventions and could also be implemented in margin assessment during (laparoscopic) cancer surgery if a laparoscopic or handheld OCT device will be further developed to make routine clinical use possible.
