By the time she was 15, she weighed 273 pounds and was pre-diabetic. She had gastric bypass surgery when she was 16. Today, Newsome is a 21-year-old college student who runs a local support group for obese teens. “When I was going through the process, I wanted to talk to people my age who were going through the same experience,” she said. Her group, O.C.E.A.N.S., “provides a safe space for teens to talk about the struggles of obesity.” Hero Image2019_weightloss_faith.jpg Preview Image Content Blocks CTA Header Learn More CTA ButtonAdolescent Weight Loss Surgery Patient Name Faith Newsome Patient Photo Gender Female Patient Story Quote“I finally got to have the experience of shopping with my friends, trying on dresses, and leaving with the one I loved.” Featured Doctors Dana D.

This study included patients who underwent primary laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) or laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). The primary outcome of interest was incisional SSI occurring within 30  days. Surgeries performed in 2015 were used in a derivation cohort and the predictive tool was validated against the 2016 cohort. A forward selection algorithm was used to build a logistic regression model predicting probability of SSI.ResultsA total of 274,187 patients were included with 71.7% being LSG and 28.3% LRYGB. 0.7% of patients had a SSI in which 71.0% had an incisional SSI, and 29.9% had an organ/spa...

Objective: We sought to compare the short and long-term outcomes of MBS in adolescents vs. adults who have undergone a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or Sleeve gastrectomy (SG).Design: Retrospective cohort study.Setting: Single tertiary care academic referral center.Participants: One hundred fifty adolescent (≤ 21-years) and adult (>21-years) subjects with severe obesity between 15 and 70 years of age who underwent RYGB or SG.Outcomes: Metabolic parameters, weight and height measures were obtained pre-and post-surgery (at 3 and 6 months, and then annually for 4 years).Results: Median pre-surgical body mass index (BM...

AbstractBackgroundRevisional gastric bypass (R-RYGB) surgery is utilized for the management of inadequate weight loss or weight regain observed after some cases of bariatric surgeries. Data on the mid-term effectiveness of primary gastric bypass (P-RYGB) compared with R-RYGB (e.g., post sleeve gastrectomy/gastric banding) are controversial.MethodsRetrospective chart review of all patients who received P-RYGB and R-RYGB (January 2011 –June 2015) at our center. One hundred twenty patients who underwent P-RYGB and 34 R-RYGB who completed 18 months follow-up were included. We compared the effectiveness of P-RYGB with R-R...

AbstractBackgroundConflicting data have been published for bariatric surgery in older patients, with no long-term large-scale studies available. Our aim was to provide long-term (>  10 years) results on weight loss, metabolic outcomes, and quality of life in a large homogenous series of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) patients, according to age at baseline.Patients and MethodsAll consecutive patients who underwent primary RYGB between 1999 and 2007, and therefore eligible for 10-year follow-up, were retrospectively analyzed. According to their age at baseline, they were divided into three groups: A (

Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is closely associated with obesity. Given that weight loss is associated with T2DM remission, there has been intense interest in diabetes outcomes following bariatric surgery. The landmark Surgical Therapy and Medications Potentially Eradicate Diabetes Efficiently (STAMPEDE) trial found that bariatric surgery was a more effective diabetes treatment compared with medical management after 5 years of follow-up. While it was not adequately powered to detect differences between Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG), other randomized clinical trials have found no differences in diabet...

ConclusionsMild-to-moderate PPHG is a frequent complication after bariatric surgery and results in smaller weight loss after 2  years. Age, baseline BMI, and an earlier glucose peak during OGTT predict PPHG after bariatric surgery.

CONCLUSION: This study reports similar T2DM resolution rates by both LRYGB and LSG during 1-5 years of follow-up. However, long-term follow-up of 10 years is needed to further substantiate these findings. PMID: 32148383 [PubMed - in process]
