Endoscopic techniques for weight loss and treating metabolic syndrome

Purpose of review The endoscopic armamentarium against obesity and metabolic syndrome is rapidly growing and improving. Novel devices have been tested and recent data either support or reject their use. We aim to discuss current data on new endoscopic procedures addressing overweight, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. Recent findings Four-year follow-up of the aspiration therapy have shown efficacy and safety at long term. A recent consensus on intragastric balloon gathered experience from more than 40 000 procedures and standardized most steps of the treatment. The TransPyloric Shuttle has been proven effective at short term but carries high rates of adverse events. The endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty promotes similar weight loss to laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in mildly obese patien. The endoluminal magnetic partial jejunal diversion promoted good weight loss and a significant reduction in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) but most cases required laparoscopic assistance to couple the magnets. One-year follow-up demonstrated that the duodenal mucosal resurfacing carried a 1.0% reduction in HbA1c. Summary Innovative endoscopic procedures focused on the treatment of overweight and related diseases are available and there is growing evidence supporting their use. Nonetheless, a multidisciplinary approach is mandatory. Video abstract http://links.lww.com/COG/A25.

AbstractDe ‐glucosylation and re‐glucosylation of glycoproteins by glucosidase II and uridine diphosphate‐glucose: glycoprotein glucosyltransferase 1 (UGGT1), respectively, are important steps in glycoprotein quality control. Misfolded glycoprotein accumulation is associated with endoplasmic reticulum st ress and can lead to protein misfolding diseases such as metabolic syndrome. Here, we analyzed the expression and activities of glucosidase II and UGGT1 in rat models of obesity and obese type 2 diabetes, phenotypes associated with moderate and severe metabolic syndrome, respectively. In obesity, th e mRNA and protei...

Abstract Psoriatic arthritis is an inflammatory arthropathy frequently associated with psoriasis and several other comorbidities. The goal of this review is to summarize the available evidence on the epidemiology, clinical implications, pathological mechanisms proposed, and screening and management recommendations for the comorbidities related with PsA. Reported comorbidities include cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, inflammatory bowel disease, fatty liver disease, uveitis, kidney disease, infections, osteoporosis, depression, central sensitization syndrome, and ...
