In 2017, the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS): Care Pathway Development for Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (SG) was published in recognition of the importance of clinical care maps that guide evidenced-based healthcare with a focus on value of the care delivered [1]. As part of this process, the Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Committee of the ASMBS sought to develop a care map for laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). This current RYGB care map focuses solely on pre-operative care, defined as the medical care and education provided to a patient from introduction into a bariatric...

Comment on paper: Sleeve Gastrectomy vs. Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass in Patients 65 Years of Age and Older: A Comparison of Short-term Outcomes doi: 10.1016/j.soard.2021.04.010
We read with great interest the results of the study Sleeve Gastrectomy vs. Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass in Patients 65 Years of Age and Older: A Comparison of Short-term Outcomes [1]. This represents one of the largest sample sizes from a single-center comparing the outcomes of SG and RYGB in elderly patients. Previous publications focusing on this population were limited mainly by small series or databases from administrative data. The authors included 565 patients, representing 22.7% of the number of bariatric surgeries in their institution, and reported surgical complications and clinical outcomes up to 24 months of follow...

Comment on: Sleeve gastrectomy vs. Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass in Patients 65 Years of Age and Older: A Comparison of Short-term Outcomes
The Authors presented a retrospective study comparing the outcomes of Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) and Sleeve Gastrectomy (SG) in a population of patients with obesity older than 65 years. They reviewed patients ’ records, identifying a total of 2486 patients who underwent either RYGB or SG between 2005 and 2018; among them, 565 were over 65 years of age. They compared 321 patients who had had RYGB and 244 who had had SG and found that RYGB patients had higher percentage of excess BMI loss (%EBMIL) at 6,1 2 and 24 months but higher complication rates.

Perforated gastric cancer: a critical appraisal
AbstractGastric cancer perforation is a life-threatening condition that accounts for less than 5% of all gastric cancer patients and typically requires emergency surgery. However, preoperative diagnosis is difficult and management has a dual purpose: to treat peritonitis and to achieve a curative resection. The optimal surgical strategy is still unclear and prognosis remains poor. A search of the literature was performed using MEDLINE databases (Pubmed, EMBASE, Web of Science and Cochrane) using terms such as “perforated gastric cancer”, “perforated gastric cancer and surgery”, “perforated gas...

Comment on: Sleeve gastrectomy versus Roux-En-Y gastric bypass in patients aged ≥65 years: a comparison of short-term outcomes
The authors presented a retrospective study comparing the outcomes of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) in a population of patients with obesity older than age 65. They reviewed patients ’ records, identifying a total of 2486 patients who underwent either RYGB or SG between 2005 and 2018; among them, 565 were aged>65 years. They compared 321 patients who had had RYGB and 244 who had had SG and found that RYGB patients had higher percentage of excess BMI loss (%EBMIL) at 6,12, and 24 months but higher complication rates [1].

Comment on: Sleeve gastrectomy versus Roux-En-Y gastric bypass in patients aged ≥65 years: a comparison of short-term outcomes
We read with great interest the results of the study “Sleeve Gastrectomy versus Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass in Patients Aged ≥65 years: A Comparison of Short-term Outcomes” [1]. This represents one of the largest sample sizes from a single center comparing the outcomes of SG and RYGB in elderly patients. Previous publications focusing on this popul ation were limited mainly by small series or databases from administrative data. The authors included 565 patients, representing 22.7% of the number of bariatric surgeries in their institution, and reported surgical complications and clinical outcomes up to 24 months...

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...

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. Conservative endoscopic management and sufficient ...
