BACKGROUND: Many bariatric surgery candidates report body image concerns before surgery. Research has reported post-surgical improvements in body satisfaction, which may be associated with weight loss. However, research has failed to comprehensively examine changes in affective, behavioral, and cognitive body image. OBJECTIVES: This research examined (1) short-term changes in affective, behavioral, and cognitive components of body image from pre-surgery to 1- and 6-months after bariatric surgery, and (2) the association between percent weight loss and these changes...

BACKGROUND: An increasing number of older patients undergo bariatric surgery. OBJECTIVE: To define the risk for complications and mortality in relation to age after gastric bypass. SETTING: A national registry-based study. METHODS: Patients (n = 47,660) undergoing gastric bypass between May 2007 and October 2016 and registered in the Scandinavian Obesity Register were included. Risk between age groups was compared by multivariate analysis...

BACKGROUND: Although multiple studies demonstrate that routine postoperative contrast studies have a low yield in diagnosing patients with early gastrointestinal (GI) leak after bariatric surgery, the practice pattern is unknown. Additionally, routine imaging may hinder procedural pathways that lead to accelerated postoperative discharge. OBJECTIVES: To report on the nationwide use of routine upper GI studies (UGI) and evaluate the effect on hospital resource utilization...

BACKGROUND: Untreated severe obesity of adolescents is associated with abnormal kidney function and development of chronic kidney disease. Lipotoxicity due to lipid accumulation in glomeruli might be an important mechanism in the progression of kidney disease in obesity. OBJECTIVE: To assess subclinical glomerular injury by measuring urinary sphingolipids in adolescents with severe obesity before and after weight loss surgery. We hypothesized that the levels of urinary sphingolipids would be elevated at baseline and improve after weight reduction...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has risen in prevalence as a standalone surgical option for treating obesity over the last 15 years. One of the most worrisome complications is development of a leak at the gastrectomy staple line. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this report is to describe our single-institution experience in managing SG staple-line leaks with fully covered endoscopic stents. SETTING: Academic medical center, United States...

A post-bariatric surgery leak is a rare but grave condition and remains every bariatric surgeon's nightmare. Endoscopic therapy with the insertion of self-expandable stents provides an effective minimally invasive approach for the management of leaks. Self-expandable stents, however, are still hampered by their tendency for migration and are not always well tolerated. Recently, double-pigtail stents have been proposed as an alternative endoscopic therapeutic modality. Both types of stents have been shown to be very effective in the management of leaks; however, most studies have pooled gastrointestinal leaks due to different etiologies together...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery, despite being the most successful long-lasting treatment for morbid obesity, remains underused as only approximately 1% of all patients who qualify for surgery actually undergo surgery. To determine if patients in need are receiving appropriate therapy, the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery created a Numbers Taskforce to specify annual rate of use for obesity treatment interventions. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to determine metabolic and bariatric procedure trends since 2011 and to provide the best estimate of the number of procedures performed in the United States in 2016...

BACKGROUND: Worldwide, the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is becoming the dominant bariatric procedure due to its reliable weight loss and low complication rate. Portomesenteric vein thrombosis (PVT) is an uncommon complication of LSG with an incidence of .3% to 1% and can lead to serious consequences, such as bowel ischemia and death. OBJECTIVES: This paper will present the presentation, risk factors, treatment, and long-term outcomes of patients who had PVT post-LSG...

INTRODUCTION: Acute care surgeons care for the entire breadth of the American adult population, including obese patients. As the population gets heavier, more patients will present to acute case surgeons with nonbariatric surgical emergencies. Do these surgeons need bariatric training to properly care for obese population? OBJECTIVES: To evaluate our experience in obese population requiring acute surgery and compare outcomes based on surgeon expertise in bariatric surgery...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in morbidly obese patients after obesity surgery is between .2% and 3.5%. Because there are a lack of prospective studies on the type of drug, the correct dosage, and the optimal duration, there are no specific recommendations found in the guidelines on thrombophylaxis. OBJECTIVES: To compare the incidence of VTE and hemorrhagic events in bariatric surgical patients receiving bemiparin thromboprophylaxis who have prophylactic and nonprophylactic Anti-factor Xa (AFXa) levels...

BACKGROUND: Weight loss (WL) and altered gut hormonal levels are involved in glucose homeostasis after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the time-related effects of WL, ghrelin, and glucacon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) plasma concentrations on type 2 diabetes resolution after LSG. SETTING: University hospital, Italy. METHODS: Ninety-one patients who underwent LSG were investigated...

BACKGROUND: Morbid obesity is a chronic disease that contributes to increased oxidative stress. Gastric bypass surgery is the gold standard method in treating co-morbidities. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to evaluate the relation between pro-oxidant antioxidant balance (PAB) as one measure of oxidative stress and glycolipid profile 6 months after gastric bypass surgery.

BACKGROUND: Obesity is on a continuous rise worldwide, and with it, novel bariatric procedures have emerged. The introduction of gastric balloons has opened up a nonsurgical option for patients opting for it. However, they still require some form of sedation and endoscopy for insertion and/or removal. OBJECTIVES: The Elipse balloon is a novel creation that has managed to bypass both these procedures; therefore, the investigation into its effectiveness is of importance...
