BACKGROUND: Incisional hernia (IH) remains a persistent and burdensome complication following colectomy. Through individualized risk-assessment and prediction models, we aim to: 1) improve preoperative risk counseling for patients undergoing colectomy; 2) identify modifiable preoperative risk factors; and 3) encourage the utilization of evidence-based risk prediction instruments in the clinical setting. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective review of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) data was conducted for all patients undergoing either open or laparoscopic colectomy as identified through the state inpatient databases (SID) of California, Florida and New York in 2009...

Importance: In the United States, reports about perioperative complications associated with bariatric surgery led to the establishment of accreditation criteria for bariatric centers of excellence and many bariatric centers obtaining accreditation. Currently, most bariatric procedures occur at these centers, but to what extent they uniformly provide high-quality care remains unknown. Objective: To describe the variation in surgical outcomes across bariatric centers of excellence and the geographic availability of high-quality centers...

Bariatric surgery has emerged as a promising treatment option for weight loss and to counter the metabolic consequences of obesity. Obesity has been linked to a hyperaggregable state, as well as a blunted response to aspirin. This pilot study assessed the hypothesis that bariatric surgery would lead to an improvement in aspirin-induced platelet inhibition and a reduction in platelet aggregability. METHODS: Fifteen patients scheduled to undergo bariatric surgery were administered two 7-day courses of aspirin 81 mg: the first course administered before surgery and the second was 3 months following surgery...

Study Objectives: Weight loss fails to resolve obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in most patients, however it is unknown as to whether weight loss differentially affects OSA in the supine compared to non-supine sleeping positions. We aimed to determine if weight loss in obese OSA patients results in a greater reduction in the non-supine Apnea Hypopnea Index (AHI) compared to the supine AHI, thus converting subjects into supine predominant OSA. Methods: Post hoc analysis of data from a randomized controlled trial assessing the effect of weight loss (bariatric surgery vs medical weight loss) on OSA in 60 obese subjects (body mass index: >35 and <55) with recently diagnosed (<6 months) OSA and AHI of ≥ 20 events/hour...

Growth hormone (GH) is an essential element for normal growth. However, reports of normal growth without GH have been made in patients who have undergone brain surgery for craniopharyngioma. Normal growth without GH can be explained by hyperinsulinemia, hyperprolactinemia, elevated leptin levels, and GH variants; however, its exact mechanism has not been elucidated yet. We diagnosed a female patient aged 13 with combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD) caused by pituitary stalk interruption syndrome (PSIS)...

BACKGROUND: Some morbidly obese patients do not qualify for bariatric surgery due to general health contraindications. Intragastric balloon treatment might be a therapeutic option in the above-mentioned cases. It can prime super-obese patients with end-stage disease for bariatric surgery. As a neoadjuvant therapy before surgery, it leads to a downstage of the disease by preliminary weight reduction, to an improvement in general health and, in summary, to a reduction of the perioperative risk...

Metabolic surgery is a gastrointestinal surgical procedure to treat obesity and its related co-morbidities with rapid development in recent years. Patients undergoing metabolic surgery have preoperative nutritional disorders, and the nutrition management for these patients is the key point of perioperative management. During the perioperative period, current research has preliminarily confirmed that perioperative managements including supplementation of micronutrients, preoperative evaluation of the weight loss, preoperative fasting and carbohydrate oral intake based on the full application of ERAS and characteristics of the patients undergoing metabolic surgery, are safe and effective in clinical practice...

Surgical operation in treating obesity and type 2 diabetes is popularizing rapidly in China. Correct prevention and recognition of perioperation-related operative complications is the premise of ensuring surgical safety. Familiar complications of the operation include deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary artery embolism, anastomotic bleeding, anastomotic fistula and marginal ulcer. The prevention of deep venous thrombosis is better than treatment. The concrete measures contain physical prophylaxis (graduated compression stocking and intermittent pneumatic compression leg sleeves) and drug prophylaxis (unfractionated heparin and low molecular heparin), and the treatment is mainly thrombolysis or operative thrombectomy...
