Long-Term Weight Loss with Body Contour Surgery After Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
ConclusionPatients who underwent body contour surgery better maintained long-term weight reduction in comparison to those who only had gastric bypass. Further understanding of the etiology of this association is important for patients contemplating body contouring surgery.Graphical abstract (Source: Obesity Surgery)

EUS-guided Anastomosis Complication in a Patient with Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: Dehiscence of the Surgical Anastomosis During Endoscopic Mucosal Resection Across EUS-guided Jejunum-gastric Anastomosis with Lumen Apposing Metal Stent
We report the case of a 38-year-old female referred to our unit to undergo EUS direct trans-gastric intervention (EDGI) for the management of a small stone in the biliary tract. Pre-procedural CT scan highlighted an abnormal distension of the gastric remnant. EUS guided jejuno-gastric anastomosis was carried out with the deployment of a 15 x 10 mm lumen apposing metal stent (LAMS).ResultsAfter 3 days, an upper GI endoscopy was performed, highlighting a mobile 25 mm polyp near the pylorus. Therefore endoscopic resection was planned before the performance of the ERCP. Piecemeal endoscopic mucosectomy was carried out with no ...

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). ...

Early Outcomes and Mid-Term Safety of One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass Are Comparable with Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: a Single Center Experience
AbstractBackgroundThe use of one anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) has increased in recent years. However, the efficacy and safety outcomes of this procedure remain under debate. Here, we compare our early outcome and mid-term safety of OAGB with primary Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB).MethodsThis was a retrospective study using computerized electronic medical records data of patients who underwent RYGB or OAGB as a primary procedure from February 2012 to February 2019 in our bariatric center. Data collected included demographics, weight-outcomes, adverse events, hospital readmission, reoperation rates, and mortality follo...

Internal Hernia After Laparoscopic One-Anastomosis (Mini) Gastric Bypass: Video Case Series of a Single-Center Experience
AbstractInternal hernia (IH) after one-anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) was thought to have an extremely low incidence. In this video, we report three cases of post-OAGB symptomatic internal herniation. The first case is a 45-year-old female who presented 4 months after her OAGB with crampy abdominal pain and reflux symptoms. An exploratory laparoscopy showed Petersen ’s hernia; the hernia was reduced with no ischemia and the defect was closed. The second case is a 40-year-old male who presented 7 months after his surgery with abdominal pain and reflux. An exploratory laparoscopy showed Petersen’s hernia; bowe...

Single-Anastomosis Duodenal Switch: Conceptual Difference between East and West
AbstractSingle-anastomosis duodenal switch (SADS) has become increasingly popular. This review compared the conceptual difference between Eastern (SADS-E) and Western (SADS-W) countries. After searching for SADS through PubMed and high-impact journals, 19 articles with 2280 patients were included for analysis. We found SADS-W was reserved for patients with a high body mass index (BMI) without type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Surgeons performing SADS-W used larger bougies and preferred shorter common channels. However, SADS-E was mainly preferred in T2DM patients with a low BMI. SADS-E bypassed less bowel and used smaller b...

Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass Versus Sleeve Gastrectomy Plus Procedures for Treatment of Morbid Obesity: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
AbstractSleeve gastrectomy (SG) and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) are the most commonly performed bariatric procedures globally, but both techniques have shortcomings. Several modifications of SG (SG plus procedures) have been developed, but the efficacy of the different procedures has not been completely elucidated. In this meta-analysis, we aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of SG plus procedures. Out of the initially identified 2357 studies, thirteen were selected for this meta-analysis: two studies on banded sleeve gastrectomy (BSG), four studies on sleeve gastrectomy plus duodenal –jejunal bypass (SG&th...

AbstractThe implementation of a clinical pathway in bariatric surgery (BS) might facilitate systemic care. Focusing on enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) programs may also improve surgical outcomes depending on the degree of adherence achieved. We hypothesized that the implementation of an ERAS clinical pathway in BS (ERABS) improves clinical outcomes compared to traditional treatment in a tertiary care hospital. The main objective was to assess the degree of adherence to the ERABS program. Secondary objectives were to evaluate compliance with the quality indicators of the Spanish Society for Obesity Surgery (SECO) and...

Missing Jejunal Perforation During Small Bowel Measurement in Patient Operated by Laparoscopic One-Anastomosis Gastric Bypass
ConclusionsMissing intestinal perforation is an uncommon injury during bariatric surgery, but its early diagnosis is important to avoid endangering the patient ’s life. Simple postoperative tachycardia in obese patients should be taken seriously as it is a warning signal. Laparoscopic reoperation in these early diagnosed cases is safe and effective, since it allows visualization and washing of the entire cavity. Bowel injuries, which may occur as a resul t of the insertion of an insufflation needle or trocar, are a rare complication of laparoscopy.
