Can children with genetic syndrome be offered bariatric surgery?
Background: Obesity-related complication is one of the leading causes of mortality in children with genetic syndrome. Most syndromic forms of obesity are associated with mild to severe cognitive deficits and unusual behaviors. While many other syndromes affecting cognition such as Down syndrome are also associated with a higher incidence of obesity. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Intra-Gastric balloon surgery as an alternative to surgery in adolescents
Background: As the eating habits of kids and adolescents trend negatively, obesity has become a significant problem which has not shown any indication of a decrease in prevalence. The question of whether bariatric surgery is the method of choice for adolescents still remains unanswered. The less invasive intra-gastric balloon (IGB) could be a safe and effective method of weight loss for appropriately selected adolescents. The expanding volume of literature needs to be reviewed to evaluate evidence concerning patient selection, procedure, efficacy, and safety. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Safe of early discharge in 605 patients submitted to bariatric surgery in a SRC Bariatric Center
Background: There are still in the world several surgeons who have doubts about the safety of early discharge. After establishing protocols such as ERAS, recent scientific evidence shows that early discharge can be performed safely without compromising the patient. We analyze our discharge protocol and his safety in relation to the hospital readmission rate in 30 days in 605 patients submitted to Laparoscopic RYGB and SG in a SRC credited center in 2017. We evaluate discharge day, cause of not-early discharge, complications and 30-day readmission rate. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Obesity in Veterans with Spinal Cord Injury and Variation in Rates of Mandated Annual BMI Screening
Background: The prevalence of obesity is high among patients of U.S. Veterans Health Administration (VHA). Veterans with spinal cord injury (SCI) are particularly susceptible to obesity and its related co-morbid conditions. Appropriate detection and management of obesity in Veterans with SCI relies on consistent measurement of body mass index (BMI). Despite a VA mandate for annual universal BMI screening, obtaining height and weight measurements can be challenging. The goal of this study is to understand the burden of obesity in this vulnerable population and to describe system-wide variation in BMI assessment of SCI patie...

Redefining Staple Loading Pressures for Adequate Tissue Apposition in Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Background: Stomach tissue thickness (TT) and surgeon-selected closed staple height (CSH) are important factors in the formation of an adequate staple line during laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Staples need to have a CSH that is appropriate for a given TT in order to avoid staple malformation that may lead to leak or bleeding. Prior studies characterizing compressed stomach TT have used a loading pressure of 8g/mm2 to mimic stapling conditions. We hypothesize that 8g/mm2 is an inadequate loading pressure for measuring stomach TT. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)
