The influence of preoperative carbohydrate loading on postoperative outcomes in bariatric surgery patients: a randomized, controlled trial
CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative carbohydrate drinks can be administered to bariatric surgery patients without significant risks. Carbohydrate loading preoperatively can decrease the duration of PONV in RYGB patients. Carbohydrate drinks can be safely included in bariatric ERAS protocols for patients with and without diabetes, although the benefits remain unknown.PMID:34016554 | DOI:10.1016/j.soard.2021.04.014 (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases : official journal of the American Society for Bariatric Surgery)

GSE174761 Bariatric surgery reduces obesity associated breast cancer and enhances response to immunotherapy [Tumor - breast cancer RNA-seq]
We examined breast cancer in a pre-clinical model of diet induced obesity (DIO) followed by vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) or dietary weight loss. DIO exacerbated tumor progression compared to lean controls, while VSG-induced weight loss reversed this exacerbation. However, dietary interventions were more effective than VSG despite similar reductions in weight and adiposity, potentially due to elevated immunosuppression after VSG. In tumor bearing mice, anti-PD-L1 immunotherapy after VSG improved anti-tumor immunity and potently impaired tumor progression. Thus, weight loss before tumor onset was protective regardless o...

Long-term effect of simplified dietary education on the nutritional status of patients after a gastrectomy
This study aimed to investigate the effect of simplified dietary education on the nu tritional status of patients after a gastrectomy. A total of 1,150 patients with gastric cancer underwent surgery between March 2014 and October 2015 at the Samsung Medical Center (SMC). Of these, we used the case-control matching method (1:1 match) by stratifying the factors of age and sex and incl uded 100 patients in each group. The clinicopathologic data of the patients for two years after the gastrectomy were prospectively collected and retrospectively analyzed. The educated group (ED, N = 100) was provided with a simplified, ordinary...

Conversion of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy to roux-en-y gastric bypass: Patterns predicting persistent symptoms after revision
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is the most common bariatric operation performed. However it is not without its drawbacks and patients may develop gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) after LSG. There is limited data available to guide treatment choice for patients suffering these sequelae. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

ERAS pathway for gastric cancer surgery: adherence, outcomes and prognostic factors for compliance in a Western centre
AbstractAdherence to an ERAS program guarantees an evidence-based approach for patient care, but the compliance to ERAS in patients undergoing surgery for gastric cancer in Western countries has not been clearly investigated. Our Institution has implemented an ERAS pathway (EP) for gastric surgery, composed of 24 items, since December 2016. We retrospectively analyzed the data of all consecutive patients undergoing surgery with curative intent for gastric cancer between January 2017 and December 2019 at our Institution, and were eligible for our EP. The primary endpoint was patients ’ compliance to the EP. Secondary ...

Port-sharing techniques for laparoscopic cholecystectomy and sleeve gastrectomy
AbstractIn Japan, the number of bariatric surgeries performed has remained low. Thus, concomitant laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is still relatively uncommon, but is increasing. We developed new port-sharing techniques for LC and LSG, which we performed on 26 obese Japanese patients with gall bladder (GB) diseases, using the LSG trocar arrangement and one additional trocar. We performed LC first, and after exchanging a port for a liver retractor in the epigastrium, we then completed LSG. One patient with an anomalous extrahepatic bile duct required one additional port. The mean...

We evaluated the changes in the prevalence and score of each ESAS-r-J item before and after gastrectomy. In addition, we compared them after gastrectomy between patients who underwent the different approac...

Pre-operative Weight Loss Program for Obese Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic Gastrectomy
J Med Invest. 2021;68(1.2):165-169. doi: 10.2152/jmi.68.165.ABSTRACTBackground : The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of obesity and the usefulness of a pre-operative weight loss program (PWLP) for obese patients undergoing laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) for gastric cancer (GC). Materials and Methods : Study1 : 219 patients who underwent laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG) for GC were divided into 2 groups : body mass index (BMI) ≧ 28 and BMI

Impact of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, Glasgow Prognostic Score, and postoperative decrease in psoas muscle index on recurrence after curative gastrectomy
Conclusions : The postoperative reduction in PMI at 6 months after surgery relative to presurgery could be a predictive marker of recurrence after curative gastrectomy for patients with pStage II and III GC.

Diet-Dependent Sex Differences in the Response to Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab. 2021 May 17. doi: 10.1152/ajpendo.00060.2021. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNearly 80% of patients that receive bariatric surgery are women, yet mechanistic pre-clinical studies have focused on males. The goal of this study was to determine the metabolic impact of diet- and surgery-induced weight loss in males, females, and ovariectomized females. Male and female mice were fed a 60% high-fat (HFD) diet before undergoing either vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) or sham surgery. Mice either remained on HFD or were switched to a standard chow diet post-surgically. When maintained on HFD, both ma...
