A468 Intussusception after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is increasingly performed due to its effectiveness for weight loss and improvements of medical comorbidities. Common complications of RYGB include anastomotic leaks and strictures, marginal ulcers, small bowel obstructions, and internal hernias. A rare complication after RYGB is intussusception, which has a prevalence between 0.07% and 0.6%. Intussusception typically occurs in a retrograde fashion at the jejunojejunostomy and can present with nonspecific or obstructive symptoms.

CONCLUSIONS Radiation can induce vasogenic edema and is associated with the RBI occurrence and development. VEGF protein is highly relevant to the induction of edema and thrombosis in the acute phase of RBI and in the early delayed phase of RBI, including vascular repair and regeneration, thrombus ablation and other events. Human recombinant endostatin can reduce the progression of cerebral edema during the early onset of RBI. PMID: 31816619 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we developed a simple approach to promote the mechanical properties and biocompatibility associated with a biopolymer, polytrimethylene carbonate (PTMC), using oleic acid-modified tricalcium phosphate particles (OA-TCP), which osteoinductive the bone cells. The manipulating microsphere diameter can easily tune the mechanical properties and porosity of microsphere scaffold. In particular, we demonstrated that incorporating OA-TCP particles on PTMC/OA-TCP scaffolds increased the biocompatibility and mechanical properties (42% porosity, compressive modulus of 217 MPa) compared with the PTMC/TCP scaffold ...

Authors: Fogato L Abstract Will I actually be ready to face my first surgical on call night? It is the question that haunts every young specialist when, once he has completed his surgical training, he is alone, often by night to face the unpredictable. It is a question of ethical and intellectual honesty to understand that learning curve is something quite different from being transformed from a surgeon by day into a superhero by night. The training gap in Italy and at the same time the typology of patients (obesity, age, gunshot wounds, and stab wounds) who come to our Emergency Departments have exasperated the ne...

CONCLUSION: We have observed that a coexistence of a long opening time of the anal canal and / or the presence of a stable enterocele are factors that significantly reduce the effectiveness of the surgery leading over time to ODS score values close to those present before surgery. In the fisrt case we suggest a pre and post-operative perineal physiotherapy, in the second case a Dougla's platsy KEY WORDS: Defecography, Obstructed defecation syndrome, Rectocele, Recto-anal prolapse.

Publication date: Available online 9 December 2019Source: Journal of Environmental SciencesAuthor(s): Andong Hu, Guoping Ren, Jiangang Che, Yulin Guo, Jie Ye, Shungui ZhouAbstractGranular acid-activated neutralized red mud (AaN-RM) has been successfully prepared with good chemical stability and physical strength. However, its potential for industrial application remains unknown. Therefore, the performance of granular AaN-RM for phosphate recovery in a fixed-bed column was investigated. The results demonstrated that the phosphate adsorption performance of granular AaN-RM in a fixed-bed column was affected by various operati...

MulugetaIntroductionLittle is known about the longitudinal trends and factors associated with obesity and overweight among U.S. immigrants and ethnic minorities.MethodsAt a large safety net health system in Massachusetts, 7,973 adults were followed retrospectively for 42.0 months on average from 2011 to 2016. Multivariate analyses were performed to identify factors associated with obesity (BMI ≥30 kg/m2) and overweight (BMI ≥25 kg/m2). Data were collected and analyzed in 2018–2019.ResultsObesi...

Saying how far consumers need to walk to burn off the calories could change eating habitsLabelling food and drinks with how much walking or running is needed to burn them off could help tackle the obesity crisis, researchers say.While all packaged food must display certain nutritional information, such as calorie content,there is limited evidence that the approach changes what people buy or eat. Meanwhile,waistlines continue to expand.Continue reading...

ConclusionsSeveral risk factors may play a role in evolution of MS. Our results show that smoking status, probably due to chronic vascular and neurotoxic effects of the cigarette components, can affect the brain damage from the early stages of MS. No association was observed with the other explored modifiable risk factors, although an effect due to the small sample size cannot be excluded.
