Five-year results of endoscopic gastrojejunostomy revision (transoral outlet reduction) for weight gain after gastric bypass

ConclusionsWeight loss after EGJR is sustained up to 5  years after revision with little effect on medical comorbidities. Patients with a greater reduction in stoma diameter experienced superior weight loss.

AbstractBackgroundObstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is associated with a variety of systemic diseases. Among patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD), the prevalence of OSAS is high. OSAS can induce progression of CKD. However, whether or not OSAS can cause renal damage in healthy people is not clear. Thus, the purpose of this meta-analysis was to elucidate whether or not there was an association between OSAS and early renal damage.MethodsPubMed, Embase Database, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, China Biology Medicine Database, Chinese Scientific Journals Database, and Wan...

This study aims to determine if SCZ patients are at increased risk of incident OSA.MethodsA total of 5092 newly diagnosed SCZ patients and 5092 non-SCZ controls matched by gender, age, and index year were included between 2000 and 2012 and followed to 2013. Participants newly diagnosed with OSA were defined as incidents. Cox regression analysis was used to calculate the hazard ratio (HR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) of the OSA incidence rate between the two groups studied.ResultsSCZ patients were at increased risk of OSA compared to non-SCZ controls after adjusting for gender, age, comorbidities, and duration of anti...

This study included patients who underwent primary laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) or laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). The primary outcome of interest was incisional SSI occurring within 30  days. Surgeries performed in 2015 were used in a derivation cohort and the predictive tool was validated against the 2016 cohort. A forward selection algorithm was used to build a logistic regression model predicting probability of SSI.ResultsA total of 274,187 patients were included with 71.7% being LSG and 28.3% LRYGB. 0.7% of patients had a SSI in which 71.0% had an incisional SSI, and 29.9% had an organ/spa...
