Outcomes of One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass in the IFSO Middle East North Africa (MENA) Region

AbstractIntroductionSince it was first described in 2001, the one anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) has been gaining popularity in the Middle East region and worldwide. We designed a survey to evaluate the trends, techniques, and outcomes of OAGB in our region.MethodsA questionnaire to study OAGB was sent to the members of the IFSO MENA chapter.ResultsOne-hundred and forty-eight surgeons (74%) responded. Forty-six percent of all respondents (64 surgeons) performed OAGB routinely. The most commonly performed procedures were the laparoscopic sleeve gastrostomy (LSG), followed by OAGB, and then Roux-en-Y (RYGB). Of the surgeons who responded, 65% did not perform routine pre-operative endoscopy. Seventy-two percent believed that OAGB produces better weight loss than the LSG while 58% did not believe it produced better results to RYGB. The most common length of biliopancreatic limb utilized was 200  cm, and 72% of surgeons did not measure the total length of the small bowel. Fifty percent of the surgeons offered OAGB as a treatment for acid reflux and 33% offered it to active smokers. Early complications included leak (

This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of transvaginal ultrasound- and laparoscopy-guided PMWA for the treatment of adenomyosis.Materials and methods: From May 2015 to October 2017, a total of 70 patients with symptomatic adenomyosis who underwent transvaginal ultrasound- and laparoscopy-guided PMWA were included in this study. The technical efficacy and complications of PMWA were assessed. Meanwhile, the uterine volume, lesion volume, symptom severity score (SSS) and visual analog scale (VAS) score before PMWA and at 1, 6 and 12 months after PMWA were recorded.Results: PMWA was successful...

Authors: Taylor CR, Dominguez JE, Habib AS Abstract Obesity is a significant global health problem. It results in a higher incidence of complications for pregnant women and their neonates. Cesarean deliveries are more common in obese parturients as well. The increased burden of comorbidities seen in this population, such as obstructive sleep apnea, necessitates antepartum anesthetic consultation. These patients pose unique challenges for the practicing anesthesiologist and may benefit from optimization prior to delivery. Complications from anesthesia and overall morbidity and mortality are higher in this population...

Conclusions: Local excision is appropriate for early rectal cancer with favourable histopathologic features. Although organ-preserving strategies are promising, the quality of the evidence to date is insufficient to replace the current standard care in most patients. Patients should be offered nom in the safe setting of a clinical trial or registry. Rigorous follow-up, including endoscopy and imaging at frequent intervals is recommended when radical resection is forgone. PMID: 31819706 [PubMed - in process]

Obesity is one of the most significant medical conditions in today's adult population, occurring at an estimated frequency of 35% with prevalence rates continuing to rise.1 In surgery, obesity has been shown to be an independent preoperative risk factor for unfavorable outcomes.2 This poses a challenge to plastic surgeons, especially since many of these procedures are aimed to treat the sequela of obesity and massive weight loss.
