Bariatric Surgery After Previous Antireflux Surgery Without Takedown of the Previous Fundoplication: a Prospective Study

ConclusionBariatric surgery is possible after fundoplication without taking down the fundoplication. It appears to be a viable alternative in patients seeking weight loss surgery after fundoplication, which is currently assumed contraindicated.

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...

Authors: Tonlorenzi D, Brunelli M, Conti M, Covani U, Traina G Abstract Increasing occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) by means of oral splints is a practice widely used in the treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMD), specifically myofascial pain, although the results are still uncertain. Oral splints with a vertical height that significantly exceeds the clinical rest position are considered by some researchers to be a better therapeutic solution in alleviating TMD symptoms than are "low" splints.In our observational study, 21 patients suffering from myofascial pain were examined for the effects of w...

The objective of the present study was to ascertain masticatory efficiency by evaluating electromyographic activity in the masseter and temporalis muscles in subjects with sleep bruxism of varying severity, as determined by BiteStrip. Thirty-four subjects with sleep bruxism were divided into two groups: a mild sleep bruxism group with a mean (± standard deviation) age of 31.3 ± 6.2 years (n = 15) and a severe sleep bruxism group with a mean age of 29.8 ± 7.1 years (n = 19). Full-night polysomnography (PSG) was performed in eligible subjects. The linear envelope integral was used to determine masticator...

Authors: Sangrador M, Olvera JG, Ortiz VM Abstract A 25-year-old woman presented with a 4 months history of progressive pain and tumefaction in the right parietal region. Deformity of the scalp was evident, and a biopsy was taken, reporting a high- grade dermatofibrosarcoma. She underwent surgical management, achieving a gross total resection. Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is a rare tumor arising from the dermis. It tends to have an indolent course and local recurrence after excision. PMID: 31819815 [PubMed]

In this study, we assessed the tumor changes induced by denosumab in a national multicentric series of 35 cases (French Bone Pathology Group network—ResOs). Tissue specimens collected before and after denosumab treatment were investigated for RANKL, H3.3 G34W, p63, and Ki-67 expression, and for H3F3A mutation. These parameters were put in correspondance with clinical and radiologic presentation to identify prognostic factors, and more specifically, predictive markers of an optimal histologic response to denosumab, identified as a ≥50% loss in giant cells with fibrosis and ossification. The main changes in posttrea...

(New York University) Nurses sleep nearly an hour and a half less before work days compared to days off, which hurts patient care and safety, finds a new study by researchers at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing. The findings are published in Sleep Health, the journal of the National Sleep Foundation.
