BACKGROUND: Weight loss (WL) and altered gut hormonal levels are involved in glucose homeostasis after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the time-related effects of WL, ghrelin, and glucacon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) plasma concentrations on type 2 diabetes resolution after LSG. SETTING: University hospital, Italy. METHODS: Ninety-one patients who underwent LSG were investigated...

BACKGROUND: In the USA, three types of bariatric surgeries are widely performed, including laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB), and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB). However, few economic evaluations of bariatric surgery are published. There is also scarcity of studies focusing on the LSG alone. Therefore, this study is evaluating the cost-effectiveness of bariatric surgery using LRYGB, LAGB, and LSG as treatment for morbid obesity...

INTRODUCTION: True left-sided gallbladder (LSG) is a rare finding that may present with symptoms similar to those of a normally positioned gallbladder. Moreover, it may be missed by preoperative imaging studies such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or endoscopic ultrasound. True left-sided gallbladder is a surgical challenge and surgical technique may need to be modified for the completion of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. PRESENTATION OF CASE: In this case report, we present a case of true left-sided gallbladder that produced right-sided abdominal symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic single anastomosis (mini-)gastric bypass (LSAGB) has been validated as a safe and effective treatment for morbid obesity. However, data of the long-term outcome remain lacking. METHODS: Between October 2001 and December 2015, 1731 morbidly obese patients who received LSAGB as primary bariatric procedure at the Min-Sheng General Hospital were recruited. Surgical outcome, weight loss, resolution of comorbidities, and late complications were followed, then compared with groups of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG)...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has increased in popularity in recent years as a definitive bariatric procedure. Despite its growing popularity worldwide, the surgical technique is not well standardized. There is a lack of evidence on the matter of the antrum size and its relation to gastric emptying and weight-loss outcomes. The aim of the study is to evaluate the influence of antrum size over gastric emptying and weight-loss outcomes. METHODS: Twenty-five patients were prospectively randomized according to the distance between the first firing and the pylorus: AR group (antrum resection-2 cm from the pylorus) and AP group (antrum preservation-5 cm from the pylorus)...

INTRODUCTION: Porto-mesenteric venous thrombosis (PMVT) is a rare but fatal complication after bariatric surgery. However, an increasing number of PMVT complications have been observed in the last years after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) operations. CASE REPORT: A 35-year-old male was admitted to the emergency clinic in a septic status with a sudden once of abdominal pain and vomiting. The patient underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) 15 days ago...

Postoperative leak is a serious complication of bariatric surgery and often results in significant morbidity and mortality. Stent placement is a less invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of bariatric surgical leak. We evaluated the efficacy and complications of covered self-expandable metal stents (SEMS) in the treatment of post-bariatric surgical leak. We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent stent placement for leak after bariatric surgery. Leak was diagnosed by upper gastrointestinal series or was visualized during the endoscopy...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery (ERAS) protocols lead to expedited discharges and decreased cost. Bariatric centers have adopted such programs for safely discharging patients after sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on the first postoperative day (POD1). Despite pathways, some bariatric patients cannot be discharged on POD1. METHODS: Retrospective review of patients undergoing LSG, between 2013 through 2016, in a center of excellence utilizing a standardized enhanced recovery pathway...

BACKGROUND: As the number of obese patients in the United States continues to grow, there is a parallel increase in the number of bariatric surgery patients. A quarter of these patients will return to the Emergency Department (ED) within the first two years of the index procedure. OBJECTIVE: An understanding of the most common bariatric procedures and their related complications will greatly aide the Emergency Medicine physician in the care of these patients. DISCUSSION: Abdominal pain is the most common reason for bariatric patients to present to the ED and can represent a diagnostic challenge to EM physicians...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgeries have turned to be a popular therapeutic option for morbid obesity nowadays. Gut microbiota is supposed to be responsible as a part of the bariatric surgeries success. In this systematic review, we detailed the human studies which investigated the effect of different bariatric surgeries on the composition of gut microbiota. METHODS: We did a comprehensive search in PubMed, Web of Science, and Scopus for all clinical trials and longitudinal observational studies documented up to December 2015...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has gained popularity in the last 10 years for its good results in weight loss and comorbidity control. However, guidelines on the pathological examination of the specimen are lacking. The aim of this retrospective study was to determine the usefulness of the routine specimen examination when presurgery endoscopy (upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, UGIE) and multiple gastric biopsies are part of the preoperative work-up. METHODS: A retrospective review of records of the patients submitted to LSG between January 2012 and August 2017 was carried out...

PURPOSE: To assess the reduction of 6 and 12 months postoperatively of Framingham risk score in morbidly obese patients with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). MATERIAL AND METHODS: In total, 870 morbid obesity patients received LSG in Taipei Medical University Hospital from June 2007 to June 2014 were retrospectively studied preoperatively, 6 and 12 months after surgery. The coronary heart disease risk was calculated using Framingham risk score. RESULTS: The body mass index in men and women decreased from 43...

Introduction: In obese patients with hiatal hernia (HH), laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) with cruroplasty is an option but use of prosthetic mesh crura reinforcement is debated. The aim was to compare the results of hiatal closure with or without mesh buttressing during LSG. Methods: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) was assessed by the Health-Related Quality of Life (GERD-HRQL) questionnaire before and after surgery in two consecutive series of patients with esophageal hiatus ≤ 4 cm2...

BACKGROUND: This study investigated the effect of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) performed for morbid obesity on serum lipid levels of dyslipidemic and normolipidemic patients. METHODS: 141 patients who underwent LSG between September 2014 and January 2016 were included in the study. RESULTS: The patients' mean body mass index was 46.27 ± 6.79 kg/m2 preoperatively, 31.60 ± 5.37 kg/m2 in the 6th month postoperatively and 27...

BACKGROUND: Delayed intra splenic abscess after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a very rare complication with poor manifestations. METHODS: We present three cases of delayed intrasplenic abscess which were managed in our departmentof minimal invasive surgery. DISCUSSION: Splenic abscess may occur in the early post-operative period following LSG; it is usually an extra splenic event after the gastric leak or an infected hematoma. In our cases, two patients had an asymptomatic ischemic demarcation in the upper part of the spleen...

Background: In Canada, severe obesity (BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2) affects 5% or 1.2 million adults. Bariatric surgery is the only effective treatment for severe obesity, but the demand for publicly funded procedures is high and capacity limited. Little is known in Canada about the types of patients undergoing these procedures, especially laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). The study objective is to examine the socio-demographic profile, morbidity and HRQoL of patients accessing LSG in one Canadian province...
