A Review of the Role of Robotics in Bariatric Surgery: Finding Our Future?

ConclusionBand migration should be suspected in patients with a history of gastric band placement presenting with bowel or biliary obstruction. Its management depends on the location of the band as well as the expertise of the surgical team.
This study examined dispositional emotion-, personality/temperament-, and reward-related variables in relation to post-surgery eating pathology and weight-change among 107 adults who underwent Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB). As part of a prospective cohort study, annual post-surgical assessments were conducted to evaluate eating pathology, using the Eating Disorder Examination-Bariatric Surgery Version, and percent weight change from pre-surgery. Dispositional measures were administered at the 6- or 7-year assessment and included the Affect Intensity Measure, Difficulties ...
Conclusions: MSA is a safe, simple, and standardized antireflux procedure. It is also feasible in patients with refractory GERD following gastric/bariatric surgery. Further prospective and comparative studies are needed to validate the preliminary clinical experience in this subset of patients. PMID: 31624454 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: Benchmark cutoffs targeting perioperative outcomes in BS offer a new tool in surgical quality-metrics and may be implemented in quality-improvement cycle. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier NCT03440138
Patients who present to the emergency department (ED) after bariatric surgery may incur significant costs with no additional benefit.
Intragastric balloon (IGB) insertion leads to dietary restriction; however, its neurohormonal actions were also described. RMR adjusted for body mass (RMR/mass) seems to increase after bariatric interventions, whereas it generally decreases after caloric-restriction-based therapies. However, no studies evaluated the changes in body composition and resting metabolic rate (RMR) over IGB treatment.
Bariatric surgery is currently recognized as being an effective technique for weight loss and the improvement of patients ’ postoperative well-being.
Bariatric surgery in the superobese (SO) patient population represents a challenge. Although the robotic platform is increasingly used for these patients, there are limited data on outcomes compared to conventional laparoscopy.
AbstractReviewed here are multiple mouse models of vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) and Roux-en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) that have emerged over the past decade. These models use diverse approaches to both operative and perioperative procedures. Scrutinizing the benefits and pitfalls of each surgical model and what to expect in terms of post-operative outcomes will enhance our assessment of studies using mouse models, as well as advance our understanding of their translational potential. Two mouse models of bariatric surgery, VSG-lembert and RYGB-small pouch, demonstrate low mortality and most closely recapitulate the human...
