Letter to the Editor
We read with great interest the case report article entitled “Hypoglycemia Worsened After Glucose Administration: A Case of Hypoglycemia Years After Gastric Surgery” by McManus et al. (1). We are grateful that the authors have highlighted the increasingly encountered syndrome of postprandial hypoglycemia. Whereas the term NIPHS (non-insulinoma pancreatog enous hypoglycemia syndrome) was previously employed, this syndrome is now typically referred to as post-bariatric hypoglycemia (PBH), as it most commonly follows bariatric surgical procedures, including gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy, as well as ot...

Recurrence of Gastric Cancer in the Jejunum Close to the Anastomotic Site after Total Gastrectomy
A 61-year-old man underwent total gastrectomy with esophago-jejunostomy for Borrmann type I gastric cancer. Postoperative intra-abdominal abscess made the patient unable to receive adjuvant chemotherapy. Only 23 weeks after operation, the patient developed melena and anemia, leading to the diagnosis of recurrence in the jejunum close to the anastomotic site. The patient received salvage resection of the recurrence. Pathological study showed that the tumor was composed of atypical cells similar to those of the primary gastric cancer. Normal jejunal mucosa was observed between the esophagus and the recurrent tumor. We judged...

Impact of the Hepatic Branch of the Vagus Nerve Transection in Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy for Patients with Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
AbstractBackgroundAn increase in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has been reported, and concomitant hiatal hernia repair (HHR) during LSG is expected to reduce the incidence of post-LSG GERD. In HHR, the hepatic branch of the vagus nerve is anatomically transected. Recent experimental animal models suggest that vagotomy may affect glycemic control and weight loss through a neuroendocrine response.ObjectivesTo examine whether LSG with/without hepatic branch vagotomy (HV) has a clinical impact on glycemic control in patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). ...

Potential survival benefits of open over laparoscopic radical gastrectomy for gastric cancer patients beyond three years after surgery: result from multicenter in-depth analysis based on propensity matching
ConclusionBy reducing recurrence, ODG achieves a better survival for GC patients with serous infiltration and tumors larger than 5  cm beyond 3 years after surgery. The present findings can serve as a reference for surgical options and the setting of follow-up time point for clinical studies. (Source: Surgical Endoscopy)

Lymphovascular Invasion: Traditional but Vital and Sensible Prognostic Factor in Early Gastric Cancer
This study sought to evaluate the prognostic effect of LVI in patients with early gastric cancer.METHODS: From 2005 to 2016, 6516 patients with early gastric cancer who underwent radical gastrectomy were analyzed. The patients were categorized according to LVI and lymph node (LN) status.RESULTS: LVI was present in 853 patients (13.1%). Patients with LVI or LN metastasis had more aggressive tumor characteristics than patients without both LVI and LN metastasis. The overall and relapse-free survival in patients with LVI were significantly worse than in patients without LVI. When we compared the survival rate of patients stra...

Effects of laparoscopic-assisted gastrectomy on elderly patients with gastric cancer
J BUON. 2021 Mar-Apr;26(2):490-498.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: Although the acceptance of laparoscopy-assisted gastrectomy (LAG) for the treatment of gastric cancer (GC) has been increasing, it is still controversial that LAG is an applicable treatment method for elderly patients since elderly patients are usually complicated with other diseases. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the prognostic differences between elderly patients and non-elderly patients after receiving LAG.METHODS: Patients (n = 306) who received LAG for the treatment of GC from April 2009 to December 2014 were included in the study. The patients were divi...

A good preoperative immune prognostic index is predictive of better long-term outcomes after laparoscopic gastrectomy compared with open gastrectomy for stage II gastric cancer in elderly patients
ConclusionThe IPI is related to the long-term prognosis of EGC. Compared with OG, LG may improve the 5-year survival rate of stage II EGC with a good IPI score. This hypothesis needs to be further confirmed by prospective studies. (Source: Surgical Endoscopy)

Third reported case of rare necrolytic migratory erythema associated with bacteraemia due to severe zinc deficiency after revisional Roux-En-Y gastric bypass: case report and literature review
CONCLUSION: Bariatric teams should screen patients before bariatric surgery for nutritional deficiencies and continue surveillance of their nutritional status after surgery. They should maintain a high index of suspicion for zinc deficiency in patients with skin rash after bariatric surgery.LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level V, case report.PMID:34061321 | DOI:10.1007/s40519-021-01154-z (Source: Eating and weight disorders : EWD)

Prevention of underfeeding during enteral nutrition after gastrectomy in adult patients with gastric cancer: an evidence utilization project
Conclusion: In this study, we performed an audit of the clinical nursing quality, which can guide nurses to accurately identify obstacles to the implementation of enteral nutrition, and standardize the implementation and management process, thereby improving the quality of nursing and the nutritional status of patients. Relevance to clinical practice: The evidence-based practice might optimize the enteral nutrition process, enhance the efficacy of enteral nutrition, and improve the nutritional status of patients. Medical staff should develop an individualized nutritional support protocol for patients based on th...

PGI9 Using a New Powered Stapling System with Gripping Surface Technology Is Associated with Better Intraoperative Outcomes Among Patients with Gastric Carcinoma
Bleeding is one of the major complications related to the anastomosis after gastrectomy. During gastrectomy, stapling thick gastric tissue can be challenging and might lead to intraoperative bleeding. Thus, a newer powered stapling system was introduced to account for tissue movements and might associated with fewer intraoperative intervention. Thus, we aim to evaluate the bleeding complications and its immediate management such as endoscopic intervention with the use of the new stapling system. (Source: Value in Health)
