Sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass: a „post-code” lottery? A comprehensive national analysis of the utilization of bariatric surgery in Switzerland between 2011-2017
Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) recently became the most frequently performed bariatric surgery (BS) worldwide, overtaking the long-time standard Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). Main indications for one or the other procedure show large inter-center variations and warrant further investigations. The aim of this study was to identify the influencers of primary BS selection in Switzerland. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Comment on: Long-term BAROS scores and independent obesity-related comorbidity predictors of failure following laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
Clinically severe obesity is a debilitating disease that takes hundreds of thousands of lives each year, thus demands consistently safe and successful interventions with sustainable life-long outcomes. The ultimate test for any weight-loss intervention is its durability, across a range of clinically severe body mass indices (BMI), co-morbidity profiles and time. This issue is of critical import, as patients often have unrealistic expectations from bariatric surgery and involving patients in precise decision-making is fundamental to confidence-building in bariatric care.

Comment on: Single and dual anastomosis duodenal switch for obesity treatment: a single centre experience
The quest for the ideal or perfect bariatric procedure continues. Perhaps, it is an unachievable goal. Whereas the objective of the vast majority of surgical procedures is to remove disease or reconstruct a damaged area, bariatric and metabolic surgery does the opposite. It alters normal tissue to create a controlled abnormality. The stomach is reduced in size and the intestine in contact with food shortened. While the objective is to reduce hunger and promote early satiety, these alterations have repercussions. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Why are adolescents with obesity and diabetes not having bariatric surgery earlier?
Adolescent obesity is a growing problem with nearly 17% of adolescents in the United States and 15% in Europe affected. This rise in obesity has been accompanied by a rapid growth in the numbers also being diagnosed with T2DM with an increase of nearly 30% between 2001 and 2009[1]. The implications of obesity and specifically T2DM in adolescents are particularly concerning given the apparent acceleration of the disease process with early loss of β cell function accompanied by worsening glycaemia and earlier end organ damage compared to adults with a similar duration of disease[2, 3].

Roux-en-y gastric bypass after lung transplantation: case report and literature review
Obesity and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are independent risk factors for transplant failure after lung transplantation [1-3], In general, organ transplantation requires potent antirejection drugs which often result in significant weight gain that alters lung function due to decreased compliance and increased resistance of the respiratory system [1,2]. GERD has been labelled as a risk factor for chronic rejection bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) after lung transplantation, which, combined with severe obesity, increases the risk of transplant failure.

Comment on: Insights into the treatment of post-sleeve gastrectomy leak. Analysis of the results of 105 cases on a national register
Despite the widely accepted role of sleeve gastrectomy in the treatment of patients with obesity as a safe procedure, there are a number of commonly reported complications including gastrointestinal leaks which may lead to serious morbidity and mortality. In a study of 28,616 patients published in 2011, the incidence of leak was reported to be 0.7% but increases in revisional procedures.[1] At its core, the underlying cause of GI leak is intraluminal pressure that exceeds the strength of the tissue integrity and staple line.

Guidelines for Gastrostomy Tube Placement and Enteral Nutrition in Patients with Severe, Refractory Hypoglycemia after Gastric Bypass
Post-bariatric hypoglycemia (PBH) affects up to 38% of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) patients. Severe cases are refractory to diet and medications. Surgical treatments including bypass reversal and pancreatectomy are highly morbid and hypoglycemia often recurs. We have developed a highly effective method of treatment by which enteral nutrition administered through a gastrostomy (G-) tube placed in the remnant stomach replaces oral diet: if done correctly this reverses hyperinsulinemia and hypoglycemia, yielding substantial health and quality-of-life benefits for severely affected patients.
