Background: Implementation of a multidisciplinary conference (MC) attended by medical, surgical, nutrition, bioethics, and psychology specialists may help identify treatment plans for bariatric surgery candidates with a high-risk psychiatric profile. Methods: Data were assessed for all bariatric candidates evaluated by the MC in an academic center between January 2009 and December 2010. Results: A total of 134 patients of 2798 patients assessed by four different psychologists were subsequently evaluated by the MC...

Background: Some institutions and insurance companies mandate a preoperative weight loss regimen prior to bariatric surgery. Previous studies suggest little to no correlation between preoperative and postoperative weight loss for laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RNYGB). This study examined the impact of preoperative weight change for patients undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Materials and Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on patients undergoing LSG at the authors' institution from 2010 to 2012...

Purpose: The aims of this study were to describe the most common medications reported by candidates for weight loss surgery and to consider the potential implications for patient care. Methods: A secondary data analysis of data from bariatric surgery patients enrolled in a randomized, controlled trial. At study entry, participants recorded their use of prescription medications they had taken in the previous 90 days. The Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical (ATC)/Defined Daily Dose (DDD) Index 2014 was used to classify medications...

Introduction: Laparoscopic gastric plication (LGCP) reduces gastric volume without resecting or implanting a foreign body. Although still considered investigational, it could be appropriate for young patients with a low body mass index (BMI) and for those unwilling to undergo sleeve gastrectomy, gastric banding, or bypass. Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess the mid-term results (2 years) of LGCP in terms of safety and efficacy. Methods: A total of 56 obese patients (47 female; mean age=30.5±11...

Background: Bariatric procedures are effective options for weight loss (WL) in the morbidly obese. However, some patients fail to lose any weight after bariatric surgery, and mid-term weight maintenance is variable. The aim of this study was to investigate whether initial WL could predict mid-term weight maintenance. Methods: Eighty patients were enrolled, of whom 44 were treated with the BioEnterics Intragastric Balloon (BIB), 21 with laparoscopic adjustable gastric lap-banding (LAGB), and 15 with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG)...

Background: Poor adherence to post-bariatric surgery aftercare continues to challenge surgical practices. The objective of this study was to identify factors that predict poor aftercare attendance among patients who underwent Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) surgery. Method: A retrospective medical chart review of patients who underwent RYGB from 2002 to 2011 was conducted. Patients with four visits or more in the first 2 years (>50%) were categorized as "acceptable follow-up" and with ≤50% as "poor follow-up...

Aim: The purpose of this study was to evaluate presurgical comorbidities, perioperative and postoperative complications, and postsurgical outcomes of minimally invasive bariatric surgery in patients aged 55 years and older to determine if age should be used as a selection criteria for bariatric surgery. Methods: A total of 750 patients underwent sleeve gastrectomy or robotic-assisted Roux-en-Y gastric bypass from January 2008 to June 2014. Patients were divided into three groups according to age: <55 years old; ≥55 to <65 years old; and ≥65 years old...

Background: Most morbidly obese patients complain of abdominal pain after laparoscopic gastric bypass (LGBP) surgery. In this study, the relationship between the prevalence and severity of pain and the drain site was assessed. Methods: Fifty morbidly obese patients undergoing LGBP surgery were selected, and a drain was randomly inserted postoperatively to the left 5 mm port in 25 cases and to the right in the other 25. All patients filled out a questionnaire, including a visual analog scale for the quality and quantity of pain, exacerbating and alleviating factors and its relation to patient's positioning, in the first 24 hours, first week, and first month after the operation...

Background: Obesity is estimated to affect more than one and a half billion adults. Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) has become one of the preferred weight loss procedures. However, complications can occur. Strictures at the gastrojejunal anastomosis lead to clinical symptoms such as vomiting, dysphagia, and patient discomfort. The stricture rate has been correlated with the size and type of stapler used. Methods: A retrospective review of the clinical records of patients who underwent LRYGB was performed between 2003 and 2010...

Introduction: Few studies have reported the prevalence and consequences of infection with Helicobacter pylori among obese patients undergoing sleeve gastrectomy. This study reviewed whether infection with H. pylori has any association with postoperative complications. This study also examined whether there was any difference in postoperative percent excess weight loss (%EWL). Materials and Methods: In this retrospective study, the pathology reports of 400 patients who underwent sleeve gastrectomy between 2008 and 2013 at the authors' institution were reviewed...

Background: Routine esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) prior to bariatric surgery has not been consistently shown to change the management of the patient. A study was performed to estimate the proportion of patients undergoing bariatric surgery evaluation who had abnormal findings on preoperative EGD that resulted in alteration of management and, second, to evaluate potential risk factors for occurrence of abnormal findings on the EGD. Methods: An observational, retrospective study in which all 232 patients who were cleared to undergo bariatric surgery and who underwent preoperative EGD between 2006 and 2013 were included at a single tertiary dedicated bariatric center for weight loss management...

Background: Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) has emerged as the gold standard for the management of morbid obesity. Accordingly, patients who fail to lose weight after LRYGB present a difficult problem for the bariatric surgeons. A literature review was performed to evaluate the management options for this select bariatric population. Methods: A literature search was conducted in the EMBASE and MEDLINE databases using the most comprehensive timeline. All relevant articles were identified and full texts were obtained and reviewed...

BACKGROUND: A unique integrative complementary medicine (CM) pilot program was launched in a general surgery department at a public teaching hospital in Israel. In addition to standard supportive care, CM treatments are used to support patients undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) in coping with perioperative distresses. We examined the experiences of patients and how the nursing staff evaluate these treatments. METHODS: Qualitative semi-structured open-ended interviews were used...

AIMS: This study explored the views and experiences of obese people preparing to undergo laparoscopic gastric banding (LAGB) leading up to the time of surgery. BACKGROUND: Weight loss surgery (WLS) is the most successful intervention available for the treatment of morbid obesity, and LAGB is among the most commonly used procedures in bariatric surgery. So far, the patient experience of deciding to undergo LAGB has been explored rarely and predominantly retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Weight regain following gastric bypass (GB) surgery continues to plague many individuals across the United States. However, understanding long-term eating and exercise behaviors to promote and sustain a lower weight following GB surgery is limited. METHOD: The purpose of this study was to explore the perceptions and attitudes of eating and exercise behaviors associated with weight maintenance in post-GB patients (n=24) 2 or more years postsurgery. Demographic, anthropometric, and food record data were collected...

BACKGROUND: Structured dietary interventions have been associated with improved outcomes in adult weight-control programs, but virtually no research has focused on children. Thus, we conducted an uncontrolled pilot study to determine the potential utility of structured approaches to enhance the dietary component of family-based treatment of severe pediatric obesity (body mass index [BMI] >97th percentile for age and sex). METHOD: Children aged 8-12 years participated with a parent or guardian...
