INTRODUCTION: many patients that undergo bariatric surgery (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass [RYGB]) may regain some of their weight lost over time. A transoral outlet reduction (TORe) with endoscopic suture could be a valid alternative in these patients. METHODS: this was a retrospective initial series of 13 consecutive patients with weight regain after RYGB and a dilated gastro-jejunal anastomosis (> 15 mm). TORe was performed using an endoscopic transmural suture device (OverStitch-Apollo®), which was used to reduce the anastomosis aperture and also to treat the gastric pouch...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Many patients who undergo bariatric surgery will experience weight regain and effective strategies are needed to help these patients. A dilated gastrojejunal anastomosis (GJA) has been associated with weight recidivism after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery (RYGB). Endoscopic transoral outlet reduction (TORe) with a full thickness endoscopic suturing device (Overstitch, Apollo Endosurgery, Austin, TX) is a minimally invasive therapeutic option. The primary aim of this project was to examine the safety and long-term efficacy data from three bariatric surgery centers and to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of the existing literature...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is an incisionless, minimally invasive bariatric procedure that reduces the length and width of the gastric cavity to facilitate weight loss. We performed a prospective study to evaluate the effects of ESG on total body weight loss and obesity-related comorbidities. METHODS: We collected data from 91 consecutive patients (mean age, 43.86 ± 11.26 years; 68% female) undergoing ESG from August 2013 through March 2016...

Background and study aims: Gastric reflux into the remnant esophagus after subtotal or partial esophagectomy is associated with impairment in patient quality of life. We evaluated the feasibility, safety, and potential effectiveness of a novel procedure using a new endoscopic suturing device to create an anti-reflux valve (funnel) in pigs after esophagectomy with gastric tube reconstruction. Methods: The endoscopic procedure was performed in four pigs using a semi-full-thickness endoscopic suturing system (OverStitch; Apollo Endosurgery, Austin, Texas, USA)...

Dumping syndrome is a long-term postoperative complication of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedures. Morphologically, dumping syndrome usually correlates with a dilatation of the gastroenterostomy with accelerated pouch emptying. Conservative therapy includes diet changes, complementary pharmacotherapy and, if symptoms persist, surgical revision. Surgical options include endoscopic, endoluminal surgery to constrict the gastrojejunostomy using a novel endoscopic suturing device (OverStitch(TM), Apollo). In our study, we aimed to assess the viability, safety and efficacy of this procedure in patients with late dumping; 14 patients who had developed late dumping syndrome underwent surgery using an endoscopic suturing technique (OverStitch(TM), Apollo)...

Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) has emerged as one of the most exciting areas in the field of minimally invasive surgery during the last decade. NOTES comprises a wide spectrum of procedures from various natural accesses such as transgastric or transvaginal routes, and different direct-target or distant-target organs. Since polypectomy was first performed in 1955, major advances in technology and refinement of endoscopic technique have allowed endoscopic surgeons to perform complex endoscopic interventions such as endoscopic submucosal dissection...

A new paradigm in the treatment of obesity and metabolic disease is developing. The global obesity epidemic continues to expand despite the availability of diet and lifestyle counseling, pharmacologic therapy, and weight loss surgery. Endoscopic procedures have the potential to bridge the gap between medical therapy and surgery. Current primary endoscopic bariatric therapies can be classified as restrictive, bypass, space-occupying, or aspiration therapy. Restrictive procedures include the USGI Primary Obesity Surgery Endolumenal procedure, endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty using Apollo OverStitch, TransOral GAstroplasty, gastric volume reduction using the ACE stapler, and insertion of the TERIS restrictive device...

Endoscopic suturing had previously been considered an experimental procedure only performed in a few centers and often by surgeons. Now, however, endoscopic suturing has evolved sufficiently to be easily implemented during procedures and is more commonly used by gastroenterologists. We have employed the Apollo OverStitch suturing device in a variety of ways including closure of perforations, closure of full thickness defects in the gastrointestinal wall created during endoscopic full thickness resection, closure of mucosotomies during peroral endoscopic myotomy, stent fixation, fistula closure, post endoscopic submucosal dissection, endoscopic mucosal resection and Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery defect closures, post-bariatric surgery gastrojejunal anastomosis revision and primary sleeve gastroplasty...

BACKGROUND: Weight gain after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass occurs in approximately 25 % of cases, and this may contribute to recurrence of comorbid conditions. Currently, adequate treatment strategies for this group of patients are limited. Endoscopic narrowing of the gastrojejunal anastomosis may result in a low-risk, minimally invasive treatment alternative compared to standard surgical revision. We assessed short-term outcomes in patients undergoing endoscopic gastrojejunal revisions (EGJR) using an endoluminal suturing device...
