ConclusionsRYGB is an effective therapy for patients with BE and reflux after SG. Its outcomes in the current study were BE remission in the majority of cases as well as a decrease in reflux activity. Further studies with larger cohorts are necessary to confirm these findings.

ConclusionOAGB is more effective for %EWL and dyslipidemia remission than SG. In addition, OAGB may lower the risk of postoperative leak, gastroesophageal reflux disease, revision, and mortality. Further comparisons of the clinical outcomes of OAGB versus SG for morbid obesity would benefit from more high-quality controlled studies.

Purpose of review Severe asthma is often associated with numerous comorbidities that complicate disease management and affect patient's outcomes. They contribute to poor disease control and mimic asthma symptoms. Although some comorbidities such as obstructive sleep apnea, bronchiectasis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are generally well recognized, many other may remain undiagnosed but may be detected in an expert specialist setting. The management of comorbidities seems to improve asthma outcomes, and optimizes therapy by avoiding overtreatment. The present review provides recent knowledge regarding the most...

This study lists the various anomalies on the basis of 504 references selected from a PubMed search in October 2018. RESULTS: The anomalies are grouped into three categories: anatomical anomalies: duodenal atresia and stenosis (3.9%), duodenal web and annular pancreas; aberrant right subclavian artery (12% of children with DS with cardiac anomaly); Hirschsprung's disease (2.76%); anorectal malformation (1.16%); congenital vascular malformations of the liver; orofacial cleft, bifid uvula (4.63%), and submucous orofacial cleft; esophageal atresia (0.5-0.9%); pyloric stenosis (0.3%); diaphragmatic hernia; malrotation of ...

AbstractBackgroundOAGB-MGB emerged as a standard procedure, albeit RYGB remains the most frequently performed gastric bypass. Comparative studies are scarce.MethodsProspectively collected data (July 2006 to November 2017) from a large sample size and adequate follow-up were analyzed using logistic regression and linear mixed models. Total weight loss (TWL) within the first 3 years was defined as primary outcome and duration of operation, perioperative, and late complications and comorbidity remission as secondary outcomes.ResultsThree hundred twenty-four OAGB-MGBs (age 42.51 ± 11.36 years, 74.69% females) presented ...

AbstractBackgroundObesity has become a global epidemic. Surgical treatment of obesity and metabolic disorders in China is increasing rapidly, but it is still a new discipline even to health professionals. As an important member of the multidisciplinary team, the knowledge and attitudes of nurses provide crucial health care to the patients and support to surgeons.ObjectivesTo study the Chinese nurses ’ knowledge of obesity and metabolic disorders, and attitudes towards bariatric surgery and to improve their capability of work in this new discipline.MethodsThis is a multicenter study, with the questionnaire distributed...

This study’s goal is to compare major aspects of these two phenotypes.Methods: A retrospective study of adult patients with asthma diagnosis observed in our Asthma clinic between 2012 and 2016. Patients were divided into EOA (onset 18 years old) groups and their data was statistically analysed.Results: 606 patients were included, 351 had EOA and 233 LOA. In the EOA group, 71.2% were women (N=250), 47.3% (N=116) had smoking history and 27.1% (N=95) were obese. Rhinitis was found in 298 patients (84.9%), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in 71 (20.2%), anxiety or depression in 30 (8.5%), cardiac disease in 29 (8.2...

Background: There is sparse real world evidence on the incidence and risk factors of frequent exacerbations in asthmatic patients.Aim: To assess incidence and risk factors of frequent exacerbations in asthmatic patients.Methods: Asthma patients aged ≥18 yrs with ≥1 year of follow-up were identified through the EU-ADR alliance in primary care databases from the Netherlands (IPCI), Italy (HSD), UK (CPRD) and Spain (SIDIAP) and secondary care Aarhus database in Denmark in the period 2008-2013. Patients were categorised into frequent exacerbators (FE) (≥2 severe exacerbations in the year following studystart) or non-FE (
