INTRODUCTION: Roux-en-Y gastric bypass has been proven to be beneficial for patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). In less-obese patient (BMI 30-35 kg/m2), surgical treatment is indicated when medication fails to control the T2DM. Asian develops diabetes at a lower BMI. For lower-BMI patients, the rate of diabetes amelioration varies significantly with patients of higher BMI after surgical treatment. The factors that contribute to the post-operative diabetes response rate in lower-BMI patients have not been elucidated...

BACKGROUND: In the USA, three types of bariatric surgeries are widely performed, including laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB), and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB). However, few economic evaluations of bariatric surgery are published. There is also scarcity of studies focusing on the LSG alone. Therefore, this study is evaluating the cost-effectiveness of bariatric surgery using LRYGB, LAGB, and LSG as treatment for morbid obesity...

BACKGROUND: Weight regain following bariatric surgery is not uncommon. Safe, effective weight loss treatment up to 1 year has been reported with the closed-loop gastric electrical stimulation (CLGES) system. Continuous recording of eating and activity behavior by onboard sensors is one of the novel features of this closed-loop electrical stimulation therapy, and may provide improved long-term weight maintenance by enhancing aftercare. METHODS: Four centers participating in a 12-month prospective multicenter randomized study monitored all implanted participants (n = 47) up to 24 months after laparoscopic implantation of a CLGES system...

BACKGROUND: Factors associated with risk for adverse outcome are important considerations in the preoperative assessment of patients for bariatric surgery. As yet, prediction models based on preoperative risk factors have not been able to predict adverse outcome sufficiently. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to identify preoperative risk factors and to construct a risk prediction model based on these. METHODS: Patients who underwent a bariatric surgical procedure in Sweden between 2010 and 2014 were identified from the Scandinavian Obesity Surgery Registry (SOReg)...

BACKGROUND: Hypothermia is associated with an increased postoperative morbidity and mortality. Forced-air warming systems are the most effective methods for its prevention. When using a mattress, a reduction in the area of diffusion of warm air by crushing due to excess weight cannot be ruled out. METHODS: We designed a prospective study to compare the efficacy of a forced-air warming mattress (Bair Hugger® 585) to prevent hypothermia (core temperature (CT°) < 36 °C) in morbidly obese (group MO, body mass index (BMI) ≥ 40 kg/m2) and non-obese patients (group NO, BMI < 30 kg/m2)...

BACKGROUND: The closure of the mesenteric defects (CMD) in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) reduces the risk of small bowel obstruction (SBO) due to internal hernia but might be associated with an increased risk of early SBO triggered by the jejunojejunal anastomosis (JJS) kinking. The aim of this study was to assess how enlarging the JJS with a bidirectional linear stapling can aid in avoiding the risk of early SBO by kinking. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective cohort study concerns 1327 patients who underwent RYGB with CMD between May 2007 and August 2016...

BACKGROUND: Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD-DS) decreases vitamin D and calcium absorption, which may result in secondary hyperparathyroidism. This study aimed at evaluating the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and secondary hyperparathyroidism before and after BPD-DS. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of patients who had undergone BPD-DS at a tertiary bariatric center between 2003 and 2010 and for whom simultaneous measurements of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and parathyroid hormone were available within 5 years post-op was performed...

BACKGROUND: In bariatric surgery patients, urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one of the most common postoperative infections. In this study, we sought to determine if preoperative patient factors and perioperative processes contribute to an increased risk of UTI. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed of patients who underwent bariatric surgery at a single institution between March 2012 and May 2016. Standard protocol was antibiotic prophylaxis with cefazolin...

INTRODUCTION: Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is one of the most common procedures performed for weight loss. Many seek the "perfect sleeve" with the notion that the type of calibrating device affects sleeve shape, and this in turn will affect outcomes and complications. Two major concerns after SG are amount of weight loss and acid reflux. Our aim was to determine if the various calibration methods could impact sleeve shape and thereby allow for better outcomes of weight loss and reflux. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed of 210 patients who underwent SG and had postoperative upper gastrointestinal (UGI) study from 2011 to 2015 in a single center by a single (fellowship-trained) bariatric surgeon...

Mesenteric panniculitis is an uncommon pathology, of poorly understood etiology, characterized by progressive inflammation and fibrosis of the small bowel mesentery. This disease has been reported usually after other abdominal surgeries. We present two cases of young male patients who underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and developed abdominal symptoms within 45-60 days of surgery. Both were investigated for known post-bariatric complications. While first patient presented (5 months later) at an irreversible stage and died within 8-9 months of primary surgery, in second patient, the disease process could be reversed through early intervention, diagnosis, treatment, and compliance...

PURPOSE: The epidemic of obesity has determined an important rise in popularity for bariatric surgery (BS) in France. The role of general practitioners (GPs) in the decision-making process of candidates to BS as well as in their life-long follow-up after surgery is therefore destined to grow up. The aim of this survey was to provide a picture of the actual knowledge of GPs about BS. METHODS: The link to an e-questionnaire composed of 20 multiple choice questions was sent to all the 101 Departmental Councils of the French Medical Board, accompanied by a letter explaining the objectives of the study...

BACKGROUND: It is important that guidelines and criteria used to prioritise access to bariatric surgery are informed by the values of the tax-paying public in combination with the expertise of healthcare professionals. Citizens' juries are increasingly used around the world to engage the public in healthcare decision-making. This study investigated citizens' juries about prioritising patient access to bariatric surgery in two Australian cities. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study is to examine public priorities for government expenditure on the surgical management of obesity developed through either a one or three-day citizen jury...

INTRODUCTION: Inactivity and weight regain are serious problems post-bariatric surgery. Nearly half of waking time is spent at work, representing an opportunity to accumulate physical activity and help avoid weight regain. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to evaluate potential differences in physical activity and sedentary time by employment status post-bariatric surgery. METHODS: A total of 48 adults (employed (n = 19), unemployed (n = 29)) aged 50...
