ConclusionsLaparoscopic excision of giant adrenal myelolipoma is a challenging procedure, but it seems to be a feasible promising approach. Expert surgeons are recommended when operating large tumors, especially, in the obese patients.

ConclusionLaparoscopic cholecystostomy was effective in this obese patient with acute cholecystitis and NASH cirrhosis. Using a low-carbohydrate diet with exercise, her weight decreased, and subsequent open cholecystectomy was uneventful.

ABSTRACT Objective: To describe a case of a male adolescent with symptomatic idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) associated with obesity treated with bariatric surgery. Case description: A 16-year-and-6-month-old severely obese boy [weight: 133.6 kg; height: 1.74 m (Z score: +0.14); BMI: 44.1 kg/m2 (Z score: +4.4)], Tanner pubertal stage 5, presented biparietal, high-intensity, and pulsatile headaches, about five times per week, associated with nocturnal awakenings, and partial improvement with common analgesics, for three months. Ophthalmologic evaluation evidenced bilateral papilledema. Cranial computed tomography...

Conclusions: Preliminary results demonstrate MDCT scan HSA measurements as a valid, non-invasive method to predict intraoperative findings. It allows the HSA monitoring in order to correlate the symptoms onset and failure of cruroplasty. PMID: 31671007 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report the laparoscopic management of such a case and make observations from similar case presentations published in the literature. A 26-year-old woman had an intragastric balloon placed endoscopically for weight control 13 months previously. She presented to the emergency department with a four-day history of intermittent abdominal cramps and vomiting. Contrast enhanced computed tomography confirmed the presence of the intragastric balloon within the small bowel. At laparoscopic retrieval, the deflated intragastric balloon was found impacted in the terminal ileum approximately 15 cm from the ileocaecal valve. The ball...

ConclusionMLL remains to be underdiagnosed. Due to the obesity epidemic, clinicians must be aware of this once rare disease. The role of concurrent bariatric surgery with surgical resection of MLL warrants further studies.

38-year-old female with no symptomatic reflux who underwent a sleeve gastrectomy for morbid obesity. At the time of surgery, she was found to have an approximately 5 cm hiatal hernia, which was repaired posteriorly. Post-operatively, she developed significant nausea and vomiting. Upper GI study and CT scan demonstrated a failure of the hiatal hernia repair with a significant portion of the stomach in the chest. She was taken back to the operating room for repair.

The patient was referred for a conversion of a gastric bypass to a duodenal switch for weight regain. The patient had a gastric bypass 15 years ago and had regained all of her weight. Since we did not have access to her operative records we performed a ct scan of her abdomen to evaluate her anatomy. Incidentally a large mass was found in the excluded stomach. A push enteroscopy was performed to biopsy and characterize the mass. The biopsy was consistent with a spindle cell neoplasm located along the lesser curve in the antrum of the stomach.

The patient had a Roux en Y gastric bypass two years ago and had presented to an outside hospital for increasing abdominal pain. The patient was evaluated in the ER and was evaluated with a CT scan which was read as normal with no obstruction. General Surgery was consulted and felt patient would be appropriate for a medical floor bed. Patient was admitted to the medicine service with presumed diagnosis of marginal ulcer, placed on PPI and pain medications and GI medicine consult was obtained. Gastroenterology agreed with PPI's and schdeuled pt for outpatient endoscopy after discharge.
