Bariatric Surgery for Congestive Heart Failure Patients Improves Access to Transplantation and Long-term Survival
ConclusionsWhen strict waitlist criteria were applied, bariatric surgery improved access to heart transplantation and thereby increased long-term survival compared with MWM. Morbidly obese CHF patients who anticipate need for heart transplantation should be encouraged to pursue surgical weight management strategies, necessitating discussion between bariatric surgeons, cardiologists, and cardiac surgeons for appropriate perioperative risk management.

Balloon dilation in sleeve gastrectomy stenosis: a simple solution to an occasionally tricky problem
The global obesity epidemic over the past decade has led to the development of several surgical therapeutic options for severe obesity, defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 40 kg/m2.1 Patients with BMI of 35 to 39.9 kg/m2 with an obesity-related comorbidity such as diabetes or hypertension and patients with a BMI of>30 kg/m2 and metabolic syndrome, or difficult-to-control diabetes, are also suitable for bariatric surgical procedures.1 Bariatric surgical procedures can be classified into restrictive procedures such as sleeve gastrectomy, malabsorptive procedures such as jejunoileal bypass and biliopancreatic diversion, ...

Assessment of Elastic Fibers in Tumor Stroma as a New Method to Predict 6-Year Outcomes for Gastric Cancer Patients
This study aimed to determine whether detecting elastic fibers in tumor stroma (EFTS) could be used as a new method for predicting the prognosis of gastric cancer (GC) patients.Materials and Methods: EFTS expression was determined by histochemistry in 160 GC patients who underwent gastrectomy. Based on the staining results, the patients were divided into three groups according to their EFTS expression level: low (n = 57), moderate (n = 50), and high (n = 53). The clinicopathological data and 6-year survival data were analyzed among different EFTS groups.Results: The expression of EFTS was closely related to lymphovascular ...

Incidence of symptomatic cholelithiasis after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and its association with rapid weight loss
Conclusion: We found a 3.5% incidence of symptomatic cholelithiasis among post-LSG patients in a period of 2 years. Rapid weight loss was the only risk factor that contributed to the development of post-LSG gallbladder disease. Statistical Analysis Used: Results were expressed as absolute numbers and percentages for categorical variables and as mean and standard deviation for continuous variables. A paired sample t-test was performed to determine significant differences between means at different time stamps. Statistical analysis was performed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 23.0. ...

Is the measurement of drain amylase content useful for predicting pancreas-related complications after gastrectomy with systematic lymphadenectomy?
This article reviews previous studies and looks to the future of measuring D-AMY in patients after gastrectomy. The causes of pancreatic fluid leakage are; the parenchymal and/or thermal injury to the pancreas, and blunt injury to the pancreas by compression and retraction. Measurement of D-AMY to predict POPF has become common in clinical practice after pancreatic surgery and was later extended to the gastric surgery. Several studies have reported associations between D-AMY and POPF after gastrectomy, and the high value of D-AMY on postoperative day (POD) 1 was an independent risk factor. To improve both sensitivity and s...

Dissection of splenic hilar lymph nodes has been included as a part of D2 lymph node dissection for proximal gastric cancer. Previously, pancreatico-splenectomy has been performed for dissecting splenic hilar lymph nodes, followed by pancreas-preserving splenectomy and spleen-preserving lymphadenectomy. However, the necessity of routine splenectomy or splenic hilar lymph node dissection has been under debate due to the increased morbidity caused by splenectomy and the poor p...
