Distal gastric bypass – 2 m biliopancreatic limb construction with varying lengths of common channel
Long-term durability after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is challenging in the super-obese population. While lengthening of Biliopancreatic limb (BPL) is associated with higher rates of weight loss, shortening of Common limb (CL) is related to higher risk of malabsorption.

Validation of biochemical scores for liver steatosis before and one year after sleeve gastrectomy
Bariatric surgery is a potential treatment for liver steatosis in morbidly obese patients, showing an improvement in around 90% of cases of fatty liver after surgery. Liver biopsy is the gold standard method to monitor liver steatosis. Imaging tests, such as Magnetic Resonance (MR) spectroscopy, have shown a good accuracy in the diagnosis of liver steatosis. Several biochemical markers have been proposed as diagnostic alternatives to evaluate fatty liver. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Banded versus nonbanded laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy: 5-year  outcomes
Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is the most commonly performed bariatric/metabolic operation. However, inadequate long-term weight loss remains a problem in some cases, possibly from gastric-sleeve dilation. Adding a reinforcing ring around the proximal gastric sleeve has been proposed, but relevant data are scant. We performed the largest, longest-term study yet of banded SG (BSG) compared to nonbanded SG. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)

Comment on: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy as day-case surgery: a  review of the literature
We read with interest the systematic review by Rebibo et  al. [1], a thorough review of the literature as it relates to sleeve gastrectomy performed in the ambulatory surgery setting. Specifically, the authors performed a literature search on studies investigating management of perioperative risks and complications after ambulatory sleeve gastrectomy. It is important to clarify the term ambulatory surgery, which was defined both in the review and in the following editorial, as outpatient surgery after which a patient is discharged on the same day.

Is it time to formally review indications and regulatory standards of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding?
The technical simplicity of the surgical procedure and early promising short-term results of the laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (AGB) made it one of the most commonly used bariatric surgical techniques in the United States and worldwide. However, since its peak around 2009, AGB utilization has declined quickly, and estimates show that only approximately 6300 new AGBs, or 3% of all bariatric surgeries, were done in the United States in 2017 [1]. The reasons behind the dramatic reduction in utilization of AGB in recent years are the suboptimal weight loss with the procedure in most patients, associated common mechan...

Laparoscopic bypass reversal for intractable nausea and vomiting using a circular stapler: a video case report
The most commonly performed bariatric procedure in the world is the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) [1]. Reported complication rates after RYGB have ranged from 7% to 15% [2], and approximately 2.7% of patients have a major complication (as defined by the Clavien-Dindo scoring system) [3]. A subset of RYGB patients go on to develop complications that may necessitate reversal of the RYGB to original or normal anatomy. Some of these reported indications include malnutrition or excessive weight loss, neuroglycopenia, massive small bowel loss due to internal hernia, need for surveillance gastric endoscopy, and chronic nausea, ...

Comment on: The impact of childhood trauma on change in depressive symptoms, eating pathology, and weight after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
While there is a significant and reliable relationship between childhood trauma and later obesity (odds ratio = 1.36) [1], this relationship is smaller than other psychosocial risk factors for the development of obesity, such as depression (odds ratio = 1.58) [2] and weight control behaviors (odds ratio = 2.7 –3.2) [3]. Perhaps unsurprisingly then, the research thus far on childhood trauma directly predicting bariatric surgery outcomes has predominantly demonstrated no significant association or small associations that weaken over time [4–10].

Morbid obesity with ventral hernia: Is concomitant bariatric surgery with laparoscopic ventral hernia mesh repair the best approach? An experience of over 150 cases
Obesity has been consistently associated with higher incidence of ventral hernia. It is preferable to treat both obesity and hernia in such patients as with weight loss the risk of recurrence of hernia is reduced. Bariatric surgery offers the best treatment for obesity and its associated co-morbidities and in combination with intra-peritoneal onlay mesh repair (IPOM) provides the best treatment in such patients. The bariatric surgical team often faces the dilemma of whether to offer concomitant bariatric surgery with IPOM or a staged procedure in such patients as the safety of a concomitant procedure still creates doubt.

Comment on: Endoscopic sutured procedures for primary treatment of  obesity and weight-related disease: an evolving therapy
Obesity- and weight-related disease is a worldwide epidemic with evolving strategies of treatment ranging from medical therapies to surgical interventions. Surgical therapy has proven to be effective and durable, with longer-term data accruing. However, many, and in fact the majority, of patients do not undergo surgery, with reports varying from 1% to 2% of eligible patients. Some patients are not eligible for surgery due to co-morbid disease or do not have access to such care. Many prefer not to undergo surgery. (Source: Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases)
