Interpretation of laboratory results after gastric bypass surgery: the effects of weight loss and time on thirty blood tests in a five years follow up program

Long-term follow-up with blood-tests is essential for bariatric surgery to be a successful treatment for obesity and related comorbidities. Adverse effects, deficiencies and metabolic improvements need to be controlled. Our objective was to investigate the impact of time and weight-loss on laboratory results in each postoperative phase after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB).

Authors: Boru CE, Termine P, Antypas P, Iossa A, Ciccioriccio MC, De Angelis F, Micalizzi A, Silecchia G Abstract BACKGROUND: Hiatal hernia repair (HHR) is still controversial during bariatric procedures, especially in case of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). AIMS: to report the long-term results of concomitant HHR, evaluating the safety and efficacy of posterior cruroplasty (PC), simple or reinforced with biosynthetic, absorbable Bio-A® mesh (Gore, USA). Primary endpoint: PC's failure, defined as symptomatic HH recurrence, nonresponding to medical treatment and requiring revisional surgery. METHO...

Authors: Clapp B, Liggett E, Ma C, Castro C, Montelongo S, Van Noy K, Dilday J, Tyroch A Abstract Background: Many bariatric surgeons test the anastomosis and staple lines with some sort of provocative test. This can take the form of an air leak test with a nasogastric tube with methylene blue dye or with an endoscopy. The State Department of Health Statistics in Texas tracks outcomes using the Texas Public Use Data File (PUDF). Methods: We queried the Texas Inpatient and Outpatient PUDFs for 2013 to 2017 to examine the number of bariatric surgeries with endoscopy performed at the same time. We used the Interna...

In conclusion, laparoscopic bariatric surgery may be an option for IIH. It is safe in patients with LPS, although concerns should be taken into account (avoid any damage to the shunt, limit digestive tract contents spillage, and strict vigilance for early detection of intracranial hypertension signs). Although valve system could prevent pressure complications, the catheter can be clamped to avoid retrograde insufflation of CO2 or digestive tract content.

CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative pregnancy did not diminish long-term weight loss in women in the LABS-2 study. The finding of comparable weight loss is relevant for providers counseling women of reproductive age on weight-loss expectations and family planning following bariatric surgery.

AbstractBackgroundWhile laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) continues to be the most commonly performed bariatric operation, several variables influence surgeons ’ practice patterns and patients’ decision-making in the type of bariatric procedure to perform. The aim of this study was to evaluate patient factors that influence the decision between laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) versus LSG.MethodsThe Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) database was queried for patients undergoing LSG and LRYGB between 2015 and 2017. Univariate analysis and multi...

Abstract PURPOSE: To assess the impact of three-dimensional (3D) vision use on operative time (OT) in laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) with hand-sewn anastomoses. METHODS: We analyzed a prospectively collected database of patients who underwent LRYGB. We included all patients operated on with either 2D or 3D vision. Demographics and clinical characteristics, operative time, hospital stay and 30-day postoperative complications were collected for all patients and analyzed. RESULTS: During the study time, out of 143 patients who underwent LRYGB for morbid obesity, 111 were considered eligible. ...

ConclusionWhen performing a bariatric-metabolic surgery in superobese patients, an extended skill level is required to provide a solution, should anything go wrong. Therefore, we suggest bariatric-metabolic surgery in superobese patients to be performed solely and specifically at high-volume centres.

Abstract The alarming rise in obesity and relative lack of pharmacotherapies to treat, what is becoming a global epidemic, has necessitated that an increasing number of bariatric procedures be performed. Several surgical techniques have been developed during the last 50 years and the advent of laparoscopic surgery has increased the safety and efficacy of these procedures. Bariatric surgery is by a substantial margin, the most efficacious means of achieving sustained weight loss maintenance in patients with obesity. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery (RYGB) elicits the most favourable metabolic outcomes with attendan...
