This study examined outcomes, surgical complications, and revisions in patients treated with laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication for hiatal hernia and substantial gastroesophageal reflux disease. In total, 85 consecutive patients who underwent hernia repair with MIROMESH Biologic Matrix, a novel hepatic-derived surgical mesh served as subjects. Subjects were contacted by phone, consented, and participated in an Institutional Review Board-approved structured phone interview. Responses were acquired from 73 of the 85 patients. The gastroesophageal reflux disease health–related quality of life showed significant improvem...

ConclusionsConversion of Nissen fundoplication to RYGB allows treatment of dysphagia, which may represent a complication of the fundoplication, and is effective for management obesity and GERD. In this video we show important technical steps of this procedure.

We present two cases of patients who underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and who were subsequently diagnosed with gastric twisting. Both cases required conversion to laparoscopic gastric bypass. Accompanying symptoms may vary but they commonly include early satiety, epigastric pain associated with food intake, gastroesophageal reflux and early vomiting. Although diagnose is mainly clinical, it requires high suspicion since endoscopy and gastrointestinal studies are not conclusive. The principal therapeutic options are endoscopic dilatations, serotomy and conversion to gastric bypass. PMID: 31755282 [PubMed - as s...

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 ...

AbstractThe development of achalasia in patients with a prior Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is rare and it often remains unclear whether the esophageal motility disorder is a pre-existing condition in the obese patient or develops de novo after the procedure. The aim of this study was to review the available evidence regarding the management of patients with achalasia after a RYGB. Intra-sphincteric injection of botulinum toxin and pneumatic dilatation can be used to eliminate the functional obstruction at the level of the gastroesophageal junction. However, considering that achalasia patients after RYGB are often young ...

This study evaluates the effect of HHR using a standardized technique for cruroplasty with a reinforcing polyglycolic acid and trimethylene carbonate mesh (PGA/TMC) on patient symptoms and outcomes. A retrospective review of patient perioperative characteristics and postoperative outcomes was conducted for cases of laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair (LHHR) using a PGA/TMC mesh performed over 21 months. Gastroesophageal reflux disease symptom questionnaire responses were compared between preoperative and three postoperative time points. Ninety-six patients underwent LHHR with a PGA/TMC mesh. Postoperatively, the number of ov...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) affects more than 20% of the US population and is the second most common gastrointestinal (GI) diagnosis in an outpatient setting, and medication cost in 2015 was estimated at nearly $13 billion (9.1% of health care costs).1 For the last 55 years, antireflux surgery (Nissen or Toupet fundoplication) has had an important role in treating patients, primarily when proton inhibitors (PPIs) have failed or alternative therapies were desired. Overall, the traditional operations have had excellent outcomes, few side effects, and commendable durability for a functional repair.
