Effect of sleeve gastrectomy on plasma growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF15) in human
Sleeve gastrostomy (SG) induces significant weight loss primarily as a result of increased satiety and reduced food intake. Growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF15) is a satiety hormone which induces a dramatic reduction of food intake and body weight. (Source: American Journal of Surgery)

Alcohol sensitivity in women after undergoing bariatric surgery: a cross-sectional study
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG), the most common bariatric surgeries performed worldwide, increase the risk to develop an alcohol use disorder (AUD). This might be due, in part, to surgery-related changes in alcohol pharmacokinetics. Another risk factor, unexplored within this population, is having a reduced subjective response to alcohol ’s sedative effects. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Pancreas is a preeminent source of ghrelin after sleeve gastrectomy in Wistar rats.
We reported a significant increase of ghrelin epsilon-cells in the pancreas and basal serum after Sleeve gastrectomy versus the control groups. The epsilon cellular increment was related to neogenesis, as the neurogenin-3 marker revealed. The Roux-en Y Gastric Bypass showed neither epsilon cell increase nor basal serum changes in ghrelin release. As a conclusion, we reported that the severe suppression of the fundus gastric produced the recovery of ghrelin released by the epsilon cells, which was indicative of an ontogenic embryonic pancreatic function.

Current State of Bariatric Surgery - Procedures, Data, and Patient Management
Bariatric surgery comprises a group of operative procedures designed to improve weight-related medical conditions. In the United States, these include vertical sleeve gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, adjustable gastric banding, and the duodenal switch procedure. Bariatric surgery is the only durable and effective way for most humans to lose a significant amount of weight, and see improvement in obesity-related comorbidities. It can improve quality of life, prevent a number of cancers, and decrease overall mortality. (Source: Techniques in Vascular and Interventional Radiology)

We thank van Dieren et  al for their comments on our study. Individuals with hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) syndrome face the difficult decision of when to proceed with a gastrectomy that could eliminate the risk for gastric cancer but at a significant cost in quality of life. This decision must be confronted a s early as 20–30 years of age. Many patients will choose to defer surgery, but there have been limited data on their outcomes. In our experience with this unique group of patients, cancer-related outcomes in patients who pursued endoscopic surveillance were similar to in those who pursued immedi...

The Incidence of Postoperative Complications after Gastrectomy Increases in Proportion to the Amount of Preoperative Visceral Fat.
Authors: Okada K, Nishigori T, Obama K, Tsunoda S, Hida K, Hisamori S, Sakai Y Abstract Background: Visceral obesity is a risk factor for complications after gastrectomy in patients with gastric cancer. However, it is unclear whether postoperative complications decrease with preoperative reduction of visceral fat without the achievement of a nonobese state. This is because previous studies have performed categorical comparisons of obesity and nonobesity. The current study was performed to estimate the impact of the preoperative visceral fat area (VFA) as a continuous variable on postoperative complications after ga...

Bariatric Surgery Is Safe and It Works
The uptake of bariatric surgery remains low in the United States, with fewer than 1% of eligible patients undergoing this life-saving treatment. In addition to the obesity bias that delays referral for surgery, some continue to fear the short- and long-term risks of surgery. To date, most long-term outcome data have focused on Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), but sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is now the most common bariatric operation in the United States. A better understanding of its long-term outcomes may help allay some of these fears. (Source: JAMA Surgery)

Does Sleeve Gastrectomy Expose the Distal Esophagus to Severe Reflux?: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
Conclusions: The postoperative prevalence of GERD, esophagitis, and BE following SG is significant. Symptoms do not always correlate with the presence of pathology. As the surgical uptake of SG continues to increase, there is a need to ensure that surgical decision-making and the consent process for this procedure consider these long-term complications while also ensuring their postoperative surveillance through endoscopic and physiological approaches. The long-term outcomes of this commonly performed bariatric procedure should be considered alongside its weight loss and metabolic effects. (Source: Annals of Surgery)
