INTRODUCTION: We described the case of a highly aggressive antral gastric carcinoma with a scarce symptomatology, in a patient undergone Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) for obesity. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 61 year-old white man in apparent good health, who underwent laparoscopic RYGB for obesity 18 months earlier, with a loss of 30kg, reported a sudden abdominal distension and breath shortness with a weight gain of 5kg in few days. Endoscopy of both upper gastro-intestinal tract and the colon were performed along with CT-scan and positron-emission tomography (PET) CT- scan...

BACKGROUND: Morbid obesity remains one of society's significant medical dilemmas. It is rapidly worsening and expected to affect 35% of the US population by the year 2020. Common current bariatric procedures exist and include, but not limited to, the adjustable gastric band, gastric bypass, and the sleeve gastrectomy. Although beneficial to morbidly obese patients, they also alter the patient's anatomy and involve resections, or require maintenance. The goal of the trial is to show a new minimally invasive vertical gastric clip technique that produces significant weight loss but requires no resection, no change in anatomy, and is reversible...

BACKGROUND: Surgical treatment of obesity is characterized by both early and late complications, and thus, there is a need to develop safe and non-invasive techniques. Ghrelin is an orexigenic hormone produced by the fundus of the stomach, which may represent a novel target for obesity management. Unfortunately, numerous attempts to alter ghrelin levels have failed to present significant clinical results. We describe a novel procedure that involves modifying arterial blood flow to the gastric fundus for limiting plasma ghrelin levels...

Background: Intestinal malrotation is a rare congenital anomaly. In adults is very difficult to recognize due to the lack of symptoms. Diagnosis is usually incidental during surgical procedures or at autopsy. Aim: To review the occurrence and recognition of uneventful intestinal malrotation discovered during regular cases of bariatric surgeries. Methods: Were retrospectively reviewed the medical registry of 20,000 cases undergoing bariatric surgery, from January 2002 to January 2016, looking for the occurrence of intestinal malrotation and consequences in the intraoperative technique and immediate evolution of the patients...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic bariatric surgery requires retraction of the left lobe of the liver to provide adequate exposure of the hiatus and the stomach. Currently used approaches utilize retractors that require additional incisions and prolong operative time. OBJECTIVES: A retrospective evaluation of the efficacy and safety of a percutaneous liver retractor in a large series of patients undergoing laparoscopic bariatric surgery. SETTING: Private practice, United States...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery is an effective intervention strategy in obesity, resulting in sustained weight loss and a reduction of comorbidities. Gastroplication, using the articulating circular endoscopic stapler, was recently introduced as a transoral bariatric technique. This procedure reduces gastric volume and induced 34.9 % of excess weight loss in the first year (Paulus et al. Gastrointest Endosc. 81(2):312-20, 3). The aim of the present study was to gain insight in the long-term effects and underlying mechanisms of gastroplication by investigating differences in the genome-wide gastric and duodenal transcriptome before and 1 year after intervention...

BACKGROUND: Obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D) continue to be growing epidemics worldwide. Although bariatric surgery remains the most effective and durable treatment for both of these chronic diseases, there is a need for therapies with risk and benefit profiles between medication and standard surgical procedures. Currently there are several endoscopic and minimally invasive therapies available worldwide to treat T2D. OBJECTIVE: To review the current evidence regarding the safety and efficacy of medical devices to treat T2D...

REVIEW
Marzieh Salehi, David A D'Alessio
Bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for obesity and diabetes. The 2 most commonly performed weight-loss procedures, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy, improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes independent of weight loss. One of the early hypotheses raised to explain the immediate antidiabetic effect of RYGB was that rapid delivery of nutrients from the stomach pouch into the distal small intestine enhances enteroinsular signaling to promote insulin signaling...

INTRODUCTION: Achalasia is a condition that occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) fails to properly relax, combined with slowing/failure of esophageal peristalsis. This is seen clinically by not allowing solids and liquids to pass easily into the stomach. Achalasia is not historically associated with morbid obesity, yet dual treatment of morbid obesity and achalasia is becoming more prominent due to the worldwide obesity epidemic. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Achalasia is typically a disease that affects non-obese adults over the age of 55, which makes the discussion of this case report unique in that our patient is a 23 year-old woman who successfully underwent per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) in preparation for a future laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy...

Obesity is the most widespread nutritional problem globally. Bariatric surgery is the preeminent long-term obesity treatment. Bariatric procedures manipulate the intestines to produces malabsorption and/or restrict the size of the stomach. The most enduring bariatric procedure is the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, which utilizes both restriction (small stomach pouch) and malabsorption (duodenum bypass). The in-vogue procedure is the vertical sleeve gastrectomy - resection of the greater curvature of the stomach (predominantly restrictive)...

INTRODUCTION: Gastric lipomas are rare benign mesenchymal tumors of the stomach. CASE REPORT: We report a 41 year old, morbid obese male, admitted for elective laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. Thorough preoperative assessment revealed a gastric lipoma in the antrum of the stomach measuring 3×3cm. Due to the patient's preference, surgical resection of the lipoma was done along with the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy procedure. DISCUSSION: In our case, we report a rare case of submucosal gastric lipoma successfully removed during a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy...

BACKGROUND: Nutrient interaction with the mid-gut may play a role in improving type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) after bariatric surgery. However, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, biliopancreatic diversion, and sleeve gastrectomy include diversion of food from the duodenum and/or partial gastrectomy. Biliointestinal bypass (BIBP) was introduced to eliminate the major side effects of jejunoileal bypass. It does not involve any change to the anatomy of the stomach or the duodenum. A prospective evaluation of the role of BIBP in glycemic control has not been reported...

BACKGROUND: Although the duodenal switch (DS) has been the most effective weight loss surgical procedure, it is a small minority of the total bariatric surgical cases performed. Modifications that can make the operation technically simpler and reduce a long-term risk of short bowel syndrome would be of benefit. The aim of this study was to detail our initial experience with a modified DS called stomach intestinal pylorus sparing (SIPS) procedure. METHODS: Data from patients who underwent a primary SIPS procedure performed by two surgeons at two centers from January 2013 to August 2014 were retrospectively analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: In 2016 60 years will have elapsed from the first publication by Nissen about his surgical method of 360° fundoplication around distal esophagus and its final effect. Nissens fundoplication is currently the most common surgical method for the gastroesophageal reflux (GER) and hiatal hernia (HH) probably. Incidence of HH ranges between 25-50% in the western population. Current prevalence of GER ranges between 4-10% in Europe and 5-7% in North America, but some studies report even 10-20%...

Bariatric surgery is an effective and enduring treatment for obesity. Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has emerged as an increasingly prevalent surgical intervention. Further investigation is required to determine optimal standardization of SG. Data were collected prospectively for 64 patients who underwent a laparoscopic vertical SG between December 2010 and February 2013 at a single academic institution. Demographic, intraoperative, and postoperative (postop) data were collected for all patients including weighing each resected stomach...

BACKGROUND: The laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is the fastest rising bariatric procedure being performed in the United States. Some surgeons advocate for an intra-operative endoscopy for their leak test, while others utilize air via a form of an oral gastric tube. We present a case demonstrating the benefits of endoscopy intra-operatively as well as discuss our experience of 200 consecutive sleeve gastrectomies. CASE PRESENTATION: The case is a 37 years old female undergoing LSG for treatment for morbid obesity...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic adjustable gastric bands (LAGB) are placed around the superior aspect of the stomach to aid weight loss and co-morbidity resolution in morbidly obese patients. Slippage of the LAGB from its original position to lower in the fundus of the stomach leads to gastric obstruction, and sometimes ischaemia or perforation, necessitating LAGB repositioning or removal. This study aimed to identify the incidence of LAGB slippage, as well as predisposing factors that may influence its development...
