Arnaldo Machado, Manuel Carvalho, Jorge Caravana
INTRODUCTION: Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) has been the most common surgical operation used to treat obesity and its inherent co-morbidities. Intussusception with bowel obstruction after RYGB is a rare complication and its physiopathology remains unclear. The diagnosis is generally based on typical image of computed tomography (CT) scan and a surgical exploration is generally recommended. CASE PRESENTATION: A 54-year-old female patient with history of a gastric bypass six years before, presented herself on the emergency department with acute onset of abdominal pain, nausea, and nonbilious vomiting...

BACKGROUND: The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) has long been considered the gold standard of weight loss procedures. However, there is limited evidence on revisional options with both minimal risk and long-term weight loss results. OBJECTIVE: To examine percent excess weight loss, change in body mass index (BMI), and complications in patients who underwent laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) over prior RYGB. SETTING: Academic hospital...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is gaining acceptance among bariatric surgeons as a viable option for treating morbidly obese patients. We describe the results of a single center's experience with SG, revealing a low complication rate. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to analyze the short-term results of laparoscopic SG using exclusively black staples with staple-line reinforcement. SETTINGS: University hospital, tertiary referral center for bariatric surgery...

BACKGROUND: Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) are the most commonly performed bariatric procedures. RYGB involves altered gastrointestinal anatomy and 2 anastomoses, while SG involves gastric resection. When potential patients view images of the procedures, they may perceive RYGB to involve significant risk compared with SG, in which no significant gastrointestinal alterations are depicted. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate preferences for RYGB versus SG...

BACKGROUND: One-anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) and single-anastomosis duodenal switch (SADS) have become increasingly popular weight loss strategies. However, data directly comparing the effectiveness of these procedures with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and vertical sleeve gastrectomy (SG) are limited. OBJECTIVES: To examine the metabolic outcomes of OAGB, SADS, RYGB, and SG in a controlled rodent model. SETTING: Academic research laboratory, United States...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has serious complications, such as leaks, reflux, stenosis, and kinks, which are also consequences of shortcomings in the LSG technique. OBJECTIVES: We evaluated the feasibility and weight loss of a novel bariatric procedure, using the greater curvature as the gastric pouch for sleeve gastrectomy (SG) in dogs. SETTING: Animal house in Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University. METHODS: Five 20- to 25-kg stray mongrel male dogs were subjected to open SG using the greater curve as the gastric pouch (GCSG group)...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery is underutilized. OBJECTIVES: To identify factors associated with eligible patient dropout from bariatric surgery. SETTING: University hospital, United States. METHODS: Eligible candidates were identified after a multidisciplinary review committee (MRC) of all patients (n = 484) who attended a bariatric surgery informational session (BIS) at a single-center academic institution in 2015...

BACKGROUND: Support after bariatric surgery is critical. Access to bariatric support groups is sometimes challenging, leading people to seek support on social media platforms like Facebook. Given the ubiquity of recommendations solicited and provided on Facebook regarding nutrition and bariatric surgery, understanding the content and accuracy of these posts is important. OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of the present study was to describe the content of nutrition-related information sought on bariatric Facebook support groups/pages...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a chronic disease associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Bariatric surgery has been shown to significantly reduce both morbidity and mortality. Numerous surgical strategies exist, but the most frequently used worldwide are adjustable gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy (SG), and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). It is not clear which of these strategies provides the optimal quality-of-life pay-off. OBJECTIVE: Modeled decision analysis allows comparison of different treatment interventions allowing for plausible differences in input variables...
