Modified laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy with Rossetti anti-reflux fundoplication. Results after 220 procedures with 24 months follow-up

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), including erosive esophagitis, is highly prevalent in the obese population. Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) is one of the most frequently performed bariatric procedures. The relationship between LSG and GERD has gained increasing attention. This retrospective study aims to assess the effectiveness of combined LSG and modified Rossetti anti-reflux fundoplication for the treatment of GERD on morbidly obese patients after bariatric surgery.

Objective: The aim of the study was to compare the rates of nutrients consumption in children and adolescents with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) compared to the control group without the disease. Methods: Based on symptom evaluation and esophageal pH-impedance recordings patients were allocated on to GERD and control groups. All patients underwent esophagogastroscopy. Levels of nutrients consumption were assessed with the use of food frequency questionnaire in the regard to the presence of the disease, esophagitis, and z score body mass index (BMI). Results: Data of 219 children and adolescents were availa...

AbstractBackgroundType 2 diabetes (T2DM) is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in the general population, but the relationship between these conditions in candidates for bariatric surgery is uncertain. We compared the prevalence of GERD and the association between GERD symptoms and esophagitis among bariatric candidates with and without T2DM.MethodsCross-sectional study of baseline data from the Oseberg study in Norway. Both groups underwent gastroduodenoscopy and completed validated questionnaires: Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Questionnaire. Participants wit...

ConclusionPatients with EE had a statistically significant resolution after GBP. BE was improved or even resolved in many patients without acquiring significance but also without progression. Long-term surveillance data is necessary to define the certain evolution of EE and BE after GBP.

ConclusionEE is more prevalent after SG compared with RYGB in a pre-bariatric surgery cohort with GERD. SG is associated with significant esophageal physiologic changes conducive to GERD and its clinical consequences.

ConclusionsPatients submitted to LSG showed a significant and progressive increase in the presence of “de novo” GERD. Also, an increased duodenogastric reflux was seen through an open and immobile pylorus. Therefore, based on these results, it seems like LSG is a “pro-reflux” surgical procedure, which should be continuously evaluated late after surgery.

Abstract Obesity is a global health epidemic with considerable economic burden. Surgical solutions have become increasingly popular following technical advances leading to sustained efficacy and reduced risk. Sleeve gastrectomy accounts for almost half of all bariatric surgeries worldwide but concerns regarding its relationship with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has been a topic of debate. GERD, including erosive esophagitis, is highly prevalent in the obese population. The role of pre-operative endoscopy in bariatric surgery has been controversial. Two schools of thought exist on the matter, one that bel...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is common in obese individuals. Prospective studies investigating validated GERD questionnaires and clinical parameters at identifying erosive esophagitis (EE) in this population are limited.
