Comparison of Billroth  I, Billroth II, and Roux-en-Y Reconstruction After Totally Laparoscopic Distal Gastrectomy: A Randomized Controlled Study

This study aimed to explore the efficacy of delta-shaped Billroth  I anastomosis in totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy for digestive tract reconstruction, and provide clinical data for determining the most appropriate digestive tract reconstruction method after distal gastrectomy.MethodsThis was a prospective randomized controlled study. A total of 180 patients were randomly and prospectively selected from Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University by random number table. These patients were randomly divided into three groups: Billroth  I group, Billroth II group, and Roux-en-Y (RY) group.ResultsThere were significant differences in resection margin, blood nutrition, and the number of postoperative complications among these three groups (P

Authors: Chia DKA, So JBY Abstract Peritoneal metastasis (PM) frequently occurs in patients with gastric cancer (GC) and confers a dismal prognosis despite advances in systemic chemotherapy. While systemic chemotherapy has poor peritoneal penetration, intraperitoneal (IP) chemotherapy remains sequestered, resulting in high peritoneal drug concentrations with less systemic side-effects. The first application of IP treatment was hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) for gastric cancer peritoneal metastasis (GCPM); but was associated with an increased morbidity and mortalit...

CONCLUSIONS: GNRI is significantly associated with OS and CSS in elderly gastric cancer patients and is an independent predictor of OS. It is a simple, cost-effective, and promising nutritional index for predicting OS in elderly patients. PMID: 32595832 [PubMed]

ConclusionAccording to this study data, bariatric surgery reduces the need for INI in patients with OA. The effect seems to be related to the amount of weight loss. Additional studies conducted on a larger scale are necessary to validate findings.

The effect of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) remains discordant and highly related to the surgical technique. GERD and weight regain are probably under studied by prospective clinical studies depending on different technical factors.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewKnowledge regarding postoperative outcomes after bariatric and metabolic surgery continues to evolve. This review highlights key findings in outcomes research over the last 5  years related to weight loss, remission of obesity-related disease, reflux, revisional surgery, robotic-assisted surgical platforms, and adolescent populations.Recent FindingsSleeve gastrectomy (SG) and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) produce similar weight loss patterns at 5  years, while duodenal switch (BPD/DS) and related procedures are associated with maximal weight loss overall and optimal resolution of obesit...

AbstractBackgroundThe systemic immune-inflammation index (SII), integrated by peripheral lymphocyte, neutrophil, and platelet counts, is used as an objective biomarker that reflects the balance between host inflammatory and immune response status in cancer patients. Herein, we examined the prognostic significance of SII in gastric cancer patients.MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed data of 415 patients who underwent curative laparoscopic gastrectomy using propensity score –matched (PSM) analysis. The prognostic value of SII was compared between two groups based on SII values: low SII group (SII

Bariatric surgery has been shown to produce the most predictable weight loss results, with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) being the most performed procedure as of 2014. However, inadequate weight-loss may present the need for a revisional procedure.
