ConclusionsDespite most patients having leftover opioids following surgery, few patients recognized possible overprescription. Education regarding opioid use following surgery is inconsistent, potentially contributing to the amount of retained opioids currently available. Future guidelines should focus on determining the appropriate amount of opioids to be prescribed following surgery and standardizing and improving education given to patients.

We present two cases of patients who underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and who were subsequently diagnosed with gastric twisting. Both cases required conversion to laparoscopic gastric bypass. Accompanying symptoms may vary but they commonly include early satiety, epigastric pain associated with food intake, gastroesophageal reflux and early vomiting. Although diagnose is mainly clinical, it requires high suspicion since endoscopy and gastrointestinal studies are not conclusive. The principal therapeutic options are endoscopic dilatations, serotomy and conversion to gastric bypass. PMID: 31755282 [PubMed - as s...

(Children's Hospital Colorado) Children's Colorado researchers and their colleagues found that musculoskeletal pain, physical function and quality of life in adolescents significantly improves and is maintained three years after bariatric surgery. Knowing that bariatric surgery does come with the risk of long-term nutritional deficiencies, particularly involving iron and vitamin B12, Children's Colorado researchers and their colleagues also conducted a five-year study of nutritional outcomes in adolescents who have undergone bariatric surgery.
