Colorectal surgery obesity-related morbidity during COVID-19.
Abstract Tocilizumab, a monoclonal antiinterluekin-6 receptor antibody, has been empirically used in the treatment of cytokine release syndrome associated with severe coronavirus disease 2019 infections. The efficacy and safety of these medications for these patients is unknown. The purpose of this report was to present a case of acute large bowel perforation in a morbidly obese patient with coronavirus disease 2019 pneumonia who received empiric Tocilizumab. This case report analyzes the risks of acute large bowel perforation after using this medication empirically and discusses the appropriate management of this...

Trends in revisional bariatric surgery using the MBSAQIP database 2015-2017.
CONCLUSION: LAGBs are being taken out or converted, and this group makes up the largest portion of revisions and conversions. It is difficult to track SG to LRYGB, but the number of unlisted cases continues to climb. This will likely surpass LAGB conversions with time. The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation Quality Initiative Program should be modified to capture revisions/conversions of SG.

Bariatric procedure selection in patients with type 2 diabetes: choice between Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy.
Abstract Guiding patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) toward the most appropriate bariatric and metabolic procedure is crucial for improving outcomes. In recent years, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) have been the most commonly performed bariatric procedures worldwide. Both are safe, effective, and durable metabolic procedures. The aim of this review was to critically examine the best available evidence derived from the randomized clinical trials (RCTs) to identify which bariatric procedure is superior in an individual with T2D to provide sustainable long-term remission. There are 4 RCTs...

Changes in resting metabolic rate and body composition due to intragastric balloon therapy.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Intragastric balloon (IGB) insertion leads to dietary restriction; however, its neurohormonal actions were also described. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) adjusted for body mass (RMR/mass) seems to increase after bariatric interventions, whereas it generally decreases after caloric restriction-based therapies. However, no studies have evaluated the changes in body composition and RMR over IGB treatment. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the relationships between changes in body composition, RMR, RMR/mass, and RMR adjusted for fat-free mass (FFM) (RMR/FFM) over IGB treatment lasting 6 months. SETTI...
