Five-Year Weight Loss Outcomes in Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (LVSG) Versus Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (LRYGB) Procedures: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
Background: Laparoscopic vertical sleeve gastrectomy (LVSG) has overtaken the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) as the most frequently performed bariatric surgical procedure. To date little has been reported on the long-term outcomes of the LVSG procedure comparative to the traditionally favoured LRYGB. We undertook a systematic review and meta-analysis to review the 5-year outcomes of comparing LVSG and LRYGB.

Pharmacological Methods of Postoperative Pain Management After Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: A Review of Meta-analyses
Conclusions: Very low to low–quality evidence indicated that pharmacological agents, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, lidocaine, parecoxib, nefopam, dexamethasone, and magnesium sulfate, could decrease pain intensity in patients undergoing LC. Moreover, moderate to high–quality evidence showed that intravenous infusion of ketamine and opioids, as well as pregabalin, was effective in pain control. Further, robust clinical trials are needed with several arms (eg, pharmacological agents) to compare the efficacy and safety of analgesics under similar clinical conditions and to find optimal regimens...

Does the Surgeon’s Caseload Affect the Outcome in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy for Acute Cholecystitis?
This study investigated how annual caseloads and the surgeon’s previous experience influence the outcome in laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LCC) for acute cholecystitis. Methods: A total of 892 patients treated in Helsinki University Hospital in 2013-2016 were retrospectively analyzed. Surgeons were compared regarding volume—over 5 LCCs for acute cholecystitis a year versus 5 or fewer LCCs a year, and experience—attendings versus residents.

Which Cholecystectomy Technique Would Surgeons Prefer on Themselves?
Conclusions: When an international sample of 600 attending and trainee surgeons were asked about undergoing a cholecystectomy on themselves, most chose either conventional laparoscopy or mini-laparoscopy as their preferred access technique. Single-incision and natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery approaches were unpopular. Surgeons ranked the experience of the operating surgeon and safety of the procedure as the most important factors guiding their decision.

Relation of Gastric Volume With Weight Loss After Sleeve Gastrectomy: Results of a Prospective Analysis
Background: Postoperative sleeve volume (SV) is a key factor in evaluating the results of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). An objective measurement of SV was obtained with 3-dimensional computed tomographic (3DCT) reconstruction. Several studies have compared SV with percent excess weight loss (%EWL), identifying an inverse relationship. We hypothesized that gastric capacity is one of the factors responsible for weight loss after LSG. Objectives: Outcomes of the study were the analysis of the inverse correlation between SV and weight loss (%EWL and body mass index) at the 12-month follow-up, and evaluation...

Cost-Effective Filtrating Suction to Evacuate Surgical Smoke in Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The wide and fast spread of COVID-19 around the world has led to a dramatic increase in the need for protection products both for carers and for populations. Surgical team protection includes a systematic screening of patients, wearing protection devices by all the operating staff, and adequate management of aerosols. The risk of aerosol dispersal is particularly high during laparoscopic and robotic surgeries due to the interaction between circulating CO2 and surgical smoke that may contain small viral particles. To decrease the risk of virus transmission, many recommendations have been implemented including the use of int...

Defining the Term “Elderly” in the Field of Surgery: A Retrospective Study Regarding the Changes in the Immunoinflammatory Indices During the Immediate Perioperative Period of the Elective Uncomplicated Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Conclusions: The increased age causes the unfavorable changes in early postoperative immunoinflammatory indices after the uncomplicated laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Thus, the term “elderly” can be rephrased by the term “vulnerable to various surgical stresses.” The thresholds for “elderly” defined herein seem impractical. Namely, the increased vulnerability caused by the aging seems modified by the individual surgical procedures. (Source: Surgical Laparoscopy, Endoscopy and Percutaneous Techniques)
