Impact of weight loss on epicardial fat and carotid intima media thickness after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy: A prospective study

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the leading causes of mortality in obese patients. We aimed to investigate the influence of significant weight loss following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) and epicardial fat thickness (EFT) which are the independent predictors of subclinical atherosclerosis.

AbstractPurposeTo systematically and comprehensively evaluate the differences between laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) versus sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) in obese patients.MethodsA systematic literature search was performed in PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library from inception to December 2018. The meta-analysis was performed by the RevMan 5.3 software.ResultsTwenty-three articles with 7443 patients were included. In short term (

ConclusionGiven the increasing number of such surgeries performed the recognition of acute and chronic complications, and their optimal management is of great importance. Although performing a Roux-en-Y fistulojejunostomy was recommended in the literature, conservative and endoscopic treatment should be considered before.

Conclusion: This study suggested that oversewing the staple line during LSG has a significant clinical value: it decreased the incidence of postoperative bleeding, postoperative leakage; moreover, it also significantly prolonged the operative time and but did not change hospital stay. More high-quality and large sample RCTs are expected to get more accurate results. PMID: 31805796 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionThis study suggests that bariatric surgery is only a prerequisite for weight loss, and the long-term dietary control and exercise can help patients achieve optimal weight loss.

Obesity is associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease which is one of the most common causes of chronic liver disease. FibroScan is a noninvasive tool for liver stiffness measurement and controlled attenuation parameter to evaluate liver steatosis and fibrosis. We aimed to demonstrate the effect of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy on liver steatosis and fibrosis. Of the 120 consecutive patients screened, 72 were enrolled in this study. FibroScan M probe and XL probe were used for the evaluation of liver steatosis and fibrosis. Fifty-two patients (72.2%) were female individuals and 20 (27.8%) were male individuals; the...

Obesity is an increasing problem worldwide. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is gaining popularity. Although it has unique complications such as leakage, bleeding, and stenosis, it is a reliable procedure. A total of 1200 consecutive patients who underwent sleeve gastrectomy and omentopexy between March 2013 and December 2018 were enrolled in this retrospective study. Body mass index, age, sex, and postoperative complications were recorded in all patients. Of 1200 patients, 864 (72%) were female and 336 (28%) were male. The median age was 38 years (13 to 69 y). Preoperative median body mass index was found as 40.87&t...

Abstract Hypothalamic obesity is a clinical syndrome characterized by severe and refractory obesity that is caused by hypothalamic function impairment. Recently, bariatric surgery has been attempted for patients with hypothalamic obesity after craniopharyngioma, but experiences have not yet been accumulated in other hypothalamic disorders. Here, we report the case of a 39-year-old male patient with panhypopituitarism who received laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) after intracranial germinoma treatment. The patient was diagnosed with intracranial germinoma at age 15 and achieved complete remission after radioth...

AbstractBackgroundSince a few years, the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has become the most performed bariatric operation worldwide. However, as with all bariatric procedures, SG also leads to vitamin and mineral deficiencies post-operatively and standard multivitamin supplements are probably not sufficient.ObjectiveThe present study evaluates the effectiveness of a specialized multivitamin supplement for SG patients (WLS Optimum 1.0, FitForMe, Rotterdam, the Netherlands), compared to a standard multivitamin supplement (sMVS).DesignA double-blind randomized controlled trial was performed. For 12  months, patient...
