Atrial reconstruction, distal gastrectomy with Ante-situm liver resection and autotransplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma with atrial tumor thrombus: A case report
We report the first documented case of surgical resection of an advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with extensive invasion to distal stomach, atrium and hepatic vasculatures. Patient concerns: We present a case of 48-years old man with abdominal mass accompanying shortness of breath after activities. Diagnoses: Preoperative examination revealed giant HCC with tumor thrombi extending into portal vein, HVs, inferior vena cava, and atrium. Interventions: Distal stomach involvement was confirmed at surgery and, distal gastrectomy, atrial reconstruction and ante-situm liver resection and autotransplant...

Revised points and disputed matters in the eighth edition of the TNM staging system for gastric cancer
AbstractThe American Joint Committee on Cancer and the Union for International Cancer Control have now released the eighth edition of the cancer staging system, which incorporates some major revisions concerning gastric cancer. First, grouping of pathological stages has been revised in accordance with a proposal from the International Gastric Cancer Association. That revision was based on analysis of survival of more than 25 000 patients worldwide who had undergone curative gastrectomy without neoadjuvant therapy. Stratification of survival in Stage III subgroups has been improved by subdividing N3 into N3a and N3b. Second...

Bariatric surgery outcomes: is age just a number?
AbstractIntroductionObesity and its associated comorbidities represent a pervasive problem in the United States across all age groups. There are conflicting data regarding the effectiveness and postoperative recovery of bariatric surgery in elderly patients. The aim of this study was to compare outcomes of bariatric surgery across age groups.Materials and MethodsAfter obtaining institutional review board approval, patients with morbid obesity who underwent non-revisional laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) at our institution between 2011 and 2015 were included in this retrospective st...

Comparison of early outcomes between Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy among patients with body mass index  ≥ 60 kg/m 2
AbstractBackgroundThere is no consensus on the ideal bariatric operation to choose for patients with extremely high body mass index (BMI). The aim of this study was to compare the perioperative complications, weight loss, and comorbidity remission between laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) among patients with BMI  ≥ 60 kg/m2.MethodsData from a statewide bariatric surgery registry were used to identify all patients with BMI  ≥ 60 kg/m2 undergoing LRYGB or LSG between January 2006 and June 2019. Risk and reliability adjustment we...

Endoscopic Management of Staple Line Leak after Bariatric Surgery: Surgeon's Perspective
Clin Endosc. 2021 May 12. doi: 10.5946/ce.2020.298. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTLaparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has become a standalone primary procedure as a bariatric metabolic surgery since the early 2000s. The overall complication rate of LSG is reported to range from 2% to 15%. Staple line leakage (SLL) remains a major adverse event and occurs in approximately 1%-6% of patients. Choosing the optimal treatment modality is a complex process. Clinicians must understand that nutritional support and drainage of fluid collection are essential for initial management.

Intratumoral Foxp3 + ROR γt + T cell infiltration determines poor prognosis and immunoevasive contexture in gastric cancer patients
ConclusionsWe found that Foxp3+RORγt+ T cells could potentially attenuate effective functions of CD8+ T cells and led to adverse survival outcomes and inferior chemotherapeutic responsiveness. Moreover, the novel co-evaluation system might be useful for prognosis prediction for appropriate treatment in gastric cancer.Novelty and impact statementsClinical significance of Foxp3+RORγts+ T cells has not been studied in gastric cancer. Herein, we investigated the prognostic value of Foxp3+RORγt+ T cells in 452 patients. We demonstrated that intratumoral Foxp3+RORγt+ T cell infiltration was a prognostic b...

With advances in techniques and improved technologies, as well as increased surgeon experience, leaks after bariatric surgery have decreased in frequency over the last decade 1-2. However, leaks remain a major source of morbidity and even mortality. Prompt identification and treatment is paramount to increasing resolution rates 3. The spectrum of interventions that may be required for treatment of leak range from observation and antibiotic therapy to emergency surgical intervention for systemic sepsis.

Comment on: Early weight loss as a predictor of 3-year weight loss and weight regain in patients with good compliance after sleeve gastrectomy
How much weight will I loose after bariatric surgery? This is probably the most common question we get asked as we discuss the value of bariatric surgery with our patients. The ability to predict weight loss preoperatively or early in the post bariatric surgery period remains difficult. As surgeons the ability to accurately discuss the results of bariatric surgery with patients might help them, and us, to choose the most appropriate surgical option, or to intervene early in case of variations from the expected weight loss trajectory.
