Routine preoperative resting echocardiography does not predict adverse cardiopulmonary events after bariatric surgery
CONCLUSION: A routine resting preoperative echocardiography added little to the cardiopulmonary risk stratification of patients who underwent bariatric surgery. High-risk patients were identifiable based on their medical history, particularly those with a known history of coronary artery disease and coronary revascularization.PMID:33637417 | DOI:10.1016/j.soard.2021.01.021 (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases : official journal of the American Society for Bariatric Surgery)

Metabolic bone disorders after gastrectomy: inevitable or preventable?
AbstractSome authors have suggested that a relationship exists between gastrectomy for gastric cancer and metabolic bone disorders. However, few studies have investigated metabolic bone disorders after gastrectomy for gastric cancer in detail. Thus, we reviewed the findings of our recent prospective study and those of other reports on this subject. Osteoporosis and osteomalacia have been observed after gastrectomy and appear to be caused by reduced food intake and absorption, and steatorrhea. Moreover, the incidence of fracture is high after gastrectomy, although subtotal or total gastrectomy and reconstruction for gastric...

Outcomes of patients older than 55 years undergoing abdominoplasty after bariatric surgery
CONCLUSION: Abdominoplasty can be safely performed in carefully selected patients older than 55 years old after weight loss surgery, and does not present increased morbidity or mortality. We recommend that surgeons avoid adding concomitant procedures when possible, to decrease the risk of complications. It is also important to look at the patient's previous maximum BMI levels, as a higher maximum BMI can predict higher postoperative risks and longer hospital stays.PMID:33622603 | DOI:10.1016/j.soard.2021.01.009 (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases : official journal of the American Society for Bariatric Surgery)

Liver metastasis from gastric cancer has a very poor prognosis. Herein, we present two cases of liver metastases (synchronous and metachronous) from advanced gastric cancer. In the first case, the patient underwent radical subtotal gastrectomy. Liver metastases occurred 6 months after surgery while the patient was receiving adjuvant chemotherapy, but two hepatic tumors were successfully removed by radiofrequency ablation (RFA). In the second case, liver metastases occurred 15 months after surgery for gastric cancer. The patient also received RFA for one hepatic tumor, and other suspicious metastatic tumors were treated wit...
