BACKGROUND: Staple line leakage is a well-known complication after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Gastric wall thickness and the staple height may be determining factors for the occurrence of insufficiencies. To investigate this problem, an observational cohort study was carried out. Investigation concentrated on the gastroesophageal junction close to the angle of His, since this area is at highest risk for a leakage. METHODS: Fundus wall thickness of 141 specimens after LSG was measured by light microscopy at a predetermined location by a blinded pathologist...

BACKGROUND: In the past, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) seemed to be a promising bariatric procedure. However, many studies showed high rates of reoperation due to complications or insufficient weight loss. There is a lack of long-term studies with follow-up beyond 15 years. OBJECTIVE: To conduct long-term follow-up of patients after LAGB and analyze their weight loss as a primary endpoint. SETTING: Tertiary referral center for bariatric surgery, St...

BACKGROUND: No method preoperatively predicts the postoperative bariatric surgery outcomes in individual patients. Decisions for or against surgery and operation choice remain subjective. Only 1% of qualifying patients embrace bariatric surgery. OBJECTIVE: To predict preoperatively and validate prospectively the weight and co-morbidity resolution in individual patients after open Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB), laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB), sleeve gastrectomy (SG), and biliopancreatic diversion/duodenal switch (BPD/DS)...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has gained popularity for the treatment of morbid obesity as gastric banding (BAND) has fallen out of favor. As a result, simultaneous conversion (CONV) of BAND to LSG is commonly performed. We hypothesized that CONV is associated with higher 30-day risk-adjusted serious morbidity. METHODS: Preoperative characteristics and 30-day outcomes from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Participant Use Files 2010-2014 were selected for patients who underwent LSG...

BACKGROUND: Remnant dimension is considered one of the crucial elements determining the success of sleeve gastrectomy (SG), and dilation of the gastric fundus is often believed to be the main cause of failure. OBJECTIVES: The main outcome of this study is to find correlations between remnant morphology in the immediate post-operative stage, its dilation in years, and the long-term results. The second purpose aims to correlate preoperative eating disorders, taste alteration, hunger perception, and early satiety with post-SG results...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a relative contraindication to organ transplantation. Preliminary reports suggest that bariatric surgery may be used as a bridge to transplantation in patients who are not eligible for transplantation because of morbid obesity. SETTING: The Bariatric Center at Tampa General Hospital, University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida. METHODS: We reviewed the outcomes of 16 consecutive patients on hemodialysis for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) who underwent bariatric surgery from 1998 to 2016...

OBJECTIVE: This study sought to explore the relationship of bariatric surgeon age and patient outcomes. BACKGROUND: Regulators, policy makers, and patient advocacy groups have recently been pushing to establish clear guidelines for physician retirement in the United States. Although it is often assumed that increasing physician age leads to worse patient outcomes, the relationship is lacking robust evidence, and is still unclear. METHODS: We conducted a study analyzing all bariatric surgeons in Michigan who participated in a statewide collaborative quality improvement program (n = 71) who performed primary laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, or sleeve gastrectomy operations, and data on their patients (n = 60430) over the past 10 years...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB)-related complications have been reported in significant numbers of patients often leading to band removal. Increasingly revisional bariatric surgery (RBS) is offered, most commonly either band to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (B-RYGB) or band to sleeve gastrectomy (B-SG). OBJECTIVES: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies to evaluate the efficacy of RBS following failed LAGB. METHODS: Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library and NHS Evidence were searched for English language studies assessing patients who had undergone LAGB and who subsequently underwent either B-RYGB or B-SG...

Along with the soaring prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) globally, metabolic and bariatric surgery (MBS) has been rapidly developing into a major surgical subspecialty. However, the indications, benefits and potential risks of MBS are still controversial so far. In September 2015, the 2nd Diabetes Surgery Summit (DSS-II() was successfully convened, and later on an international joint statement on metabolic surgery in the treatment algorithm for T2DM was released based upon the consensus reached in DSS-II(, aiming to serve as a new global clinical guideline...

INTRODUCTION: Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) can be associated with inadequate weight loss, insufficient resolution of co-morbidities and severe reflux. Conversion to Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) is a potential solution. The aim of this study was to determine the common indications for conversion from SG to RYGB at our centre, and evaluate patient outcomes with respect to weight loss and co-morbidity resolution. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients who underwent conversion from SG to RYGB between 2008 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Optimizing postoperative patient outcomes and nutritional status begins preoperatively. Patients should be educated before and after weight loss surgery (WLS) on the expected nutrient deficiencies associated with alterations in physiology. Although surgery can exacerbate preexisting nutrient deficiencies, preoperative screening for vitamin deficiencies has not been the norm in the majority of WLS practices. Screening is important because it is common for patients who present for WLS to have at least 1 vitamin or mineral deficiency preoperatively...
