ConclusionUDCA for 6  months after bariatric surgery seems to reduce the incidence of gallstone-associated morbidity when compared to the current literature. Thus, our results call the concept of prophylactic concomitant cholecystectomy in patients with asymptomatic gallstones into question while at the same time pavin g the way for a future clinical trial.

ConclusionsLTG-ERCP is a safe and feasible alternative for gallstone cholangitis management in patients with RYGB. This procedure should be recommended for cases of cholangitis rather than laparoscopic choledocoscopy or a percutaneous transhepatic approach, especially in cases of prior cholecystectomy, or in patients where the BMI remains high. LTG-ERCP should be performed in a referral center by a skilled endoscopist and surgeon following a standardized technique.

CONCLUSIONS: GB cancer is a rare finding in cholecystectomy specimens. The incidence of this entity might be higher in obese older females owing to the higher incidence of cholelithiasis in these patients. PMID: 26757568 [PubMed - in process]

Cholelithiasis is a very common pathology in the Chilean population and is catalyzed by rapid weight loss, especially after bariatric surgery. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a safe technique but when is performed during bariatric surgery can increase surgical morbidity. The goal of this study is to report intraoperative (IO) and early postoperative (PO) complications when cholecystectomy is performed simultaneously with bariatric or metabolic surgery.
