A627 Converting Old Procedures. Conversion of a Failed Vertical-Banded Gastroplaty to a Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy

54 years old female from Calgary Alberta Canada who had a Vertical Banded Gastroplasty (VBG) in 2002 in Canada; in 2011 she requested me a revision from VBG to a gastric band due to weight regain with modest results and ultimately regaining all her weight back and developing gastro-esophageal reflux, GERD) she came back for a second revision in 2018 requesting a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Her initial BMI was 42 with two major co-morbidities diabetes mellitus (DMII) and high blood pressure (HBP)that went under remission with the primary surgery ; but due to de novo GERD and weight regain due to a band revision she requested a second revision / conversion procedure .

Authors: Eisa M, Sandhu A, Prakash R, Ganocy SJ, Fass R Abstract Background/Aims: A number of inflammatory mediators have been documented to be elevated in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Similar inflammatory mediators are involved in coronary artery disease. Thus, the aim of the study is to determine if GERD is a risk factor for developing acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Methods: We used Explorys, a private cloud-based data store to which a number of health care systems feed information. We identified a cohort of GERD patients who have undergone an esophagogastroduodenoscopy compared to those withou...

AbstractBackgroundWhile laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) continues to be the most commonly performed bariatric operation, several variables influence surgeons ’ practice patterns and patients’ decision-making in the type of bariatric procedure to perform. The aim of this study was to evaluate patient factors that influence the decision between laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) versus LSG.MethodsThe Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) database was queried for patients undergoing LSG and LRYGB between 2015 and 2017. Univariate analysis and multi...

AbstractBackgroundCurrent literature is conflicted regarding the efficacy of laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery (LARS) among obese patients complaining of pathologic reflux or otherwise symptomatic hiatal hernias. Controlling for other factors, this study examined the influence of preoperative body mass index (BMI) on clinical and subjective quality of life (QOL) outcomes following LARS.MethodsPatients who underwent LARS between February 2012 and April 2018 were subdivided into four BMI stratified categories according to CDC definitions: normal (18.5 to

ConclusionRYGB results in better weight loss compared to SG in Asians, but the rate of T2DM resolution/improvement and improvement of hypertension appears to be similar. In Asian patients without symptoms of gastro-esophageal reflux disease in whom metabolic surgery is performed mainly for T2DM and metabolic syndrome, SG may be the surgery of choice.

AbstractThe One Anastomosis (Mini) Gastric Bypass is rapidly gaining acceptance. This review reports cumulative results of 12,807 procedures in obese patients with a mean age of 41.18  years and BMI of 46.6 kg/m2. The overall mortality was 0.10% and the leak rate was 0.96%. The follow-up duration ranged from 6  months to 12 years. A marginal ulceration rate of 2.7% and an anaemia rate of 7.0% were reported. Approximately 2.0% of patients reported postoperative gastro-oesophageal reflux and 0.71% developed malnutrition. Excess weight loss at 6, 12, 24 and 60 months was 60.68, 72.56, 78.2 and 76.6% r...

Abstract Background The disproportionate increase in the super obese (SO) is a hidden component of the current obesity pandemic. Data on the safety and efficacy of bariatric procedures in this specific patient population are limited. Our aim is to assess the comparative effectiveness of the two most common bariatric procedures in the SO. Methods Using the Bariatric Outcomes Longitudinal Database from 2007 to 2012, we compared SO patients (BMI ≥ 50) undergoing laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or sleeve gastrectomy (SG). Stepwise l...

Conclusion According to the current literature data and the values obtained in our paper, we can correlate through expressive values obesity with OSA and their apnea hypopnea index (AHI) values. However, despite significant prevalence of OSA with other comorbidities, our study could not render expressive significance values able to justify their correlations.[...]Thieme Publicações Ltda Rio de Janeiro, BrazilArticle in Thieme eJournals:Table of contents  |  Abstract  |  open access Full text

CONCLUSIONS: The diagnosis of gastroesophageal disease through preoperative FGS motivated variations in the therapeutic approach in 52% of patients, so we consider essential to include the preoperative FGS in bariatric surgery. PMID: 26140632 [PubMed - in process]
