Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) is the surgical treatment of choice for morbid obesity. Several therapeutic options to remove common bile duct (CBD) stones have been proposed in these patients. Laparoscopy-assisted transgastric ERCP (LATERCP) has a high success rate. However, the procedure is not fully standardized and some technical variations have been proposed. We introduce two cases in which laparoscopic transgastric ERCP has been used to treat choledocholithiasis after LRYGB.

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic approach is the gold standard for surgical treatment of morbid obesity. The single-port (SP) approach has been demonstrated to be a safe and effective technique for the treatment of morbid obesity in several case control studies. OBJECTIVES: Compare conventional multiport laparoscopy (LAP) with an SP approach for the treatment of morbid obesity using sleeve gastrectomy in terms of postoperative pain using a visual analog scale (VAS) 0-100, surgical outcome, weight loss, and aesthetical satisfaction at 6 months after surgery...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Unsatisfactory weight loss after gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy in super-obese patients (body mass index > 50) is a growing concern. Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch results in greater weight loss, but is technically challenging to perform, especially as a laparoscopic procedure (Lap-DS). The aim of this study was to compare perioperative outcomes of Lap-DS and the corresponding open procedure (O-DS) in Sweden. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The data source was a nationwide cohort from the Scandinavian Obesity Surgery Registry and 317 biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch patients (mean body mass index = 56...

Morbid obesity is a life threatening condition. Currently, surgery represents the only effective and durable therapeutic option to treat it. The first aim of the study was to estimate and compare the major surgical complications and the 30-day rate of mortality between laparoscopic and open Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB and RYGB). The second aim was to evaluate the change in outcomes, complications, and deaths, with increased experience over the time period of the review. A random effect of the meta-analysis and meta-regression was used to evaluate surgical complications (i...

The laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB) is a widely performed procedure for the morbid obesity epidemic. Despite its low mortality compared with other mainstream bariatric surgeries, it is not without its complications. The authors report a late and rare complication of a small bowel obstruction in a 52-year-old woman from an LAGB placed for 2 years. She was diagnosed clinically and radiologically with a small bowel obstruction. However, in the setting of an LAGB, this became a closed-loop obstruction...

Introduction. Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGBP) is a common procedure in obesity surgery. The aim of an antecolic approach is to reduce the rate of internal herniation. Our aim is to make bariatric surgeons aware of another possible complication of antecolic LRYGBP. Methods and Results. We present a case report of omental torsion 24 months after antecolic LRYGBP presenting as an acute abdomen, suggesting appendicitis. During diagnostic laparoscopy, omental infarction due to torsion was observed...

BACKGROUND: Nocturnal hypertension (night systolic [S]/diastolic [D] blood pressure [BP]≥120/70 mm Hg), nondipper status (nocturnal BP fall<10% of daytime values), and pulse pressure ([PP]; difference between 24-h SBP and DBP readings) are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. We evaluated the 1-year effect of significant surgical weight loss (WL) on abnormal BP patterns in patients with and without hypertension and identified the factors involved. SETTING: University hospital, Spain...

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...

Staged bariatric procedures in high risk patients are a common used strategy for morbid obese patients nowadays. After previous sleeve gastrectomy, surgical treatments in order to complete weight loss or comorbidities improvements or resolutions are possible. One strategy is to perform a novel technique named SADI (single anastomosis duodenoileal bypass-sleeve). We present the technique for totally intracorporeal robotically assisted SADI using five ports and a liver retractor. We aim to see if the robotic technology offers more advantageous anastomosis and dissection obtained by the robotic approach in comparison to standard laparoscopy...

INTRODUCTION: The increasing number of morbidly obese patients leads to a rising number of bariatric procedures in Germany. The operative techniques are highly standardized but such a standardization is lacking for the management of postoperative complications such as stenosis and ulceration after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery and sleeve gastrectomy (SG). METHODS: The current literature is reviewed and a complication management is developed and presented in this article...

The prevalence of obesity in patients with chronic kidney failure and renal transplant candidates has paralleled the epidemic in the general population. The associated risks of surgical complications and long-term cardiovascular death are significant: most transplant centers consider obesity a relative contra-indication for transplant. Few studies have focused on conservative weight loss strategies in transplant patients. Studies using administrative databases have found that only a minority of wait-listed patients lose weight and with no apparent benefit to transplant outcomes...

BACKGROUND: As most bariatric procedures are performed by laparoscopy, hospital stay is exceptionally short, despite the habitus of patients and the rather extensive intra-abdominal surgery. To facilitate postoperative mobilization, most patients are given repeated single doses of morphine, a drug with several side effects. We aimed to evaluate the effect of preoperative treatment with a tablet of slow-release morphine (SRM) on postoperative analgesic consumption and length of stay (LOS) in laparoscopic gastric bypass (LGBP)...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is recognized as a risk factor for trocar site hernia (TSH) after laparoscopic surgery. Some recent studies have reported a TSH rate after bariatric surgery ranging from 0% to 1.6% using clinical evaluation and may underestimate the TSH rate. The objective of this study was to evaluate the TSH rate after sleeve gastrectomy (SG) by abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan. METHODS: A retrospective review of all patients who underwent first-line SG and abdominal CT scan between March 2004 and February 2014 was performed...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic gastric bypass (LRYGB) is considered as the gold standard procedure for morbid obesity because of sustainable weight loss and coexisting conditions improvements (Sjostrom L et al. The New England journal of medicine 351(26):2683-93, 2004 [1]; Thereaux J et al. Surg Obesity Related Dis: Off J Am Soc Bariatric Surg, 2014 [2]). However, there are some concerns with the late risk of gastrojejunal anastomotic stenosis and of small bowel obstruction (Hamdan K et al. 98(10):1345-55, 2011 [3])...
