AbstractBackgroundHiatal hernia repair performed at the time of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) may reduce post-operative reflux symptoms. It is unclear whether intra-operative diagnosis of hiatal hernia varies among surgeons or if it affects outcomes.Study designSurgeons (n = 38) participating in a statewide bariatric surgery quality improvement collaborative reviewed 33 videos of LSG in which no hiatal hernia repair was performed. Reviewers were blinded to patient information and were asked whether they perceived a hiatal hernia. Surgeon characteristics and surge on-specific patient outcomes for LSG w...

Leaks and fistulas after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) are a major complication of bariatric surgery. The endoscopic management strategy for post LSG leaks has evolved from closure with covered self-expanding metallic stents (SEMS) to endoscopic internal drainage (EID). The aim of this study is to report our experience with the management of post LSG leaks treated with EID, either as primary therapy or after failure of closure therapy with SEMS.

AbstractAdolescents seeking bariatric surgery may present with pre-existing psychiatric diagnoses for which they use chronic medications. To heighten awareness concerning perioperative polypharmacy in adolescents with extreme obesity, we conducted a retrospective review of patients undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy between February 2010 and May 2017 at Children ’s National Health System (CNHS). A total of 167 adolescent patients had pre-existing psychiatric diagnoses which included depression (50%), anxiety (23%), ADHD (23%), and binge eating disorder (11%). Medications prescribed to treat these diagnoses in...

In conclusion, biomechanics proved to be useful for the investigation of BS effects. Future exploitations of the biomechanical methods may largely improve BS reliability, efficacy and penetration rate. PMID: 32472365 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

As laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) reaches maturity as a stand-alone bariatric procedure, long-term data continue to evolve regarding its associated outcomes and complication profile. Recent randomized clinical trials have confirmed good if somewhat variable excess weight loss (EWL) at 5 years ranging from 50-80%, generally comparable or slightly inferior to that of roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB).[1-3] Various definitions of success have been proposed, but one of the more commonly utilized metrics requires greater than 50% EWL at 12-18 months following surgery.
