Hypotonic Low Esophageal Sphincter Is Not Predictive of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease After Sleeve Gastrectomy
ConclusionHypotonic LES has a poor predictive value on postoperative GERD. The LES ’s length is significantly reduced after SG and this could be a factor explaining de novo reflux. (Source: Obesity Surgery)

Weight Loss and Quality of Life After Sleeve Gastrectomy or One-Anastomosis Gastric Bypass: Results of a Prospective Study of 120 Women with Morbid Obesity
AbstractOur aim was to compare quality of life (QoL) after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and laparoscopic one-anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) on obese female adult patients in the first 2  years following surgery. One hundred twenty patients with BMI over 40 kg/m2 and who underwent either SG or OAGB agreed to take part in this study. Weight loss and QoL were assessed via an online platform (e-baros ®) before surgery and every 6 months after it. Two years after the operation, results showed a clinically meaningful reduction in BMI of 40.4% and a significantly meaningful improvement of QoL. No sig...

Indocyanine green fluorescence lymphography during gastrectomy after initial endoscopic submucosal dissection for early gastric cancer.
CONCLUSION: Fluorescence lymphography successfully visualized all draining LNs after ESD, with high sensitivity and negative predictive value for detecting LN metastasis. Fluorescence lymphography-guided lymphadenectomy could be an alternative to systematic lymphadenectomy during additional surgery after ESD.

Endoscopic submucosal dissection for gastric epithelial lesions: long-term results in a Spanish cohort.
CONCLUSIONS: ESD-G in our setting provides high long-term cure rates, while avoiding surgery. These results are similar to those reported by the European series and remain far removed from the cure and relapse rates obtained in Asian cohorts.

Impact of fragmentation on rehospitalization after bariatric surgery
AbstractBackgroundThe care of patients who have undergone bariatric surgery is complex and requires a multidisciplinary approach. As such, these patients may be prone to fragmentation of care and differences in healthcare outcomes. We aimed to (1) determine the incidence of fragmentation among patients after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or sleeve gastrectomy (SG), (2) identify risk factors for readmission, and (3) ascertain whether care fragmentation affects outcomes.MethodsThis is a retrospective cohort study using the National Readmission Database 2016. Patients were included if they had primary bariatric surgery duri...

Oxyntomodulin and glicentin may predict the effect of bariatric surgery on food preferences and weight loss.
n A Abstract BACKGROUND: Alterations in several gastrointestinal hormones are implicated in the postoperative suppression of food intake leading to weight loss after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG). The aim was to evaluate changes in responses of gastrointestinal hormones after RYGB and SG and the associations of these changes with weight loss, energy intake, and food preferences. METHODS: Forty-two subjects with severe obesity were included (32 RYGB; 10 SG). Postprandial responses of glicentin, oxyntomodulin, GLP-1, PYY, and ghrelin were measured before and 6 months after surgery....

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, but not sleeve gastrectomy, decreases plasma PCSK9 levels in morbidly obese patients.
Abstract AIM: Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) is a master regulator of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) metabolism, acting as an endogenous inhibitor of the LDL receptor. While it has been shown that bariatric surgery differentially affects plasma LDL-C levels, little is known of its effects on plasma PCSK9 concentrations. Therefore, the present study aimed to: (i) investigate the effect of sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) on plasma PCSK9 concentrations; and (ii) correlate baseline or postoperative plasma PCSK9 concentration variations with anthropometric...

Plasma cells and lymphoid aggregates in sleeve gastrectomy specimens: Normal or gastritis?
Lymphoid follicles/aggregates in gastric biopsies have been traditionally linked to Helicobacter pylori gastritis, and less commonly to other inflammatory and neoplastic conditions. The frequency of such aggregates in normal stomachs has yet to be adequately evaluated. This is especially relevant when it comes to diagnosing non-specific chronic gastritis in biopsy specimens with chronic inflammation but no evidence of H pylori infection. Sleeve gastrectomies represent an opportunity to study adequately preserved gastric mucosa in patients who are otherwise asymptomatic and lack a history of gastric disease. To study sleev...

Comparison of the short-term outcomes between totally laparoscopic total gastrectomy and laparoscopic-assisted total gastrectomy for gastric cancer: a meta-analysis
Background: Totally laparoscopic total gastrectomy (TLTG) and laparoscopic-assisted total gastrectomy (LATG) are two common surgical approaches for upper and middle gastric cancer. Which surgical approach offers more advantages is still controversial due to a lack of evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs). This meta-analysis was conducted to compare the short-term outcomes between the two surgical approaches. Methods: A systematic literature search was performed to evaluate short-term outcomes between TLTG and LATG, including overall postoperative complications, anastomosis-related complications, time for a...
