Publication date: Available online 17 January 2019Source: PeptidesAuthor(s): Katherine A. Rollins, Lennart Opitz, Myrtha Arnold, Eric Simon, Heike Neubauer, Susanne WolfrumAbstractAltered GLP-1 secretion from L cells has been implicated in the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus and its resolution following bariatric surgery. However, changes in L cell gene expression, which may form the basis for altered functionality after high fat diet (HFD) or bariatric surgery, have either not been investigated or have given conflicting results. We developed a gcg-DTR-eGFP reporter mouse to isolate ileal and colonic L cells from H...

AbstractThe reported incidence of trocar site hernias in bariatric surgery ranges between 0.5 and 3%. The best available evidence derives from retrospective studies analysing prospective databases, thus including only patients who presented with symptoms or received surgical treatment due to trocar site hernias after a laparoscopic bariatric procedure. A systematic literature research was conducted up until September 2017. Search strategies included proper combinations of the MeSH terms ‘laparoscopy’ and ‘bariatric surgery’, ‘trocar/port’ and ‘hernia’. Searches were not limit...

Conclusion: This study shows that increasing BMI, DM2, and joint pain were all associated with treatment choice for obesity. In addition, self-reported lifetime adversity was associated with the patients ’ treatment choice for morbid obesity. Consequently, we suggest that decisions concerning obesity treatment should include dialogue-based assessments of the patients’ lifetime adversity.Obes Facts 2019;12:1 –13

This study sought to describe laparoscopic cholecystectomy cost of care among three subspecialties of surgeons. This retrospective observational cohort study captured 372 laparoscopic cholecystectomy cases performed between June 2015 and June 2016 by 12 surgeons divided into three subspecialties: 2 in bariatric surgery (BS), 5 in acute care surgery (ACS), and 5 in general surgery (GS). The study utilized a third-party software, Surgical Profitability Compass Procedure Cost Manager and Crimson System (SPCMCS) (The Advisory Board Company, Washington, DC), to stratify case volume, supply cost, case duration, case severity lev...

Adolescents seeking bariatric surgery commonly demonstrate increasing weight trajectories, despite intervention efforts. Pre-surgical programs for adolescent surgery candidates often include extensive dietary and exercise counseling as well as work-up and treatment of co-morbidities, but little work has explored pre-operative BMI trajectories. The purpose of the current study was to explore the pre-operative BMI trajectories and associations with medical and mental health variables in an adolescent sample seeking bariatric surgery.
