BACKGROUND: This series of patients with a history of roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and cholecystectomy presented with symptoms consistent with obstructive biliary disease and massive biliary dilation of 15 mm or greater, suggesting a structural etiology. Findings from laparoscopic assisted transgastric endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (TGERCP) were a normal appearing ampulla without structural lesions or stones, suggesting a functional etiology, instead. STUDY DESIGN: Patients who underwent TGERCP from January 2008 to October 2016 and had a previous surgical history of RYGB and cholecystectomy were identified from an institutional database...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is an effective treatment for obesity and associated metabolic complications. Obesity and type 2 diabetes are associated with increased oxidative stress. Previous studies have examined changes in plasma oxidative stress after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, but there is limited evidence of the effects of LSG. OBJECTIVES: To examine the effects of LSG on plasma thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and total antioxidant status (TAOS) at 1 and 6 months after LSG in patients with obesity and impaired glucose regulation...

Balloon-assisted endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatoscopy (ERCP) in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) patients is technically challenging due to anatomic and accessory constraints, thus success rates are modest. Transgastric ERCP (TG-ERCP) offers a viable alternative. We aimed to systematically review the literature on TG-ERCP in RYGB patients to better define the technical approaches, success rates, and adverse events of this procedure. A computer-assisted search of the Embase and PubMed databases was performed to identify studies that focused on the techniques and clinical outcomes of TG-ERCP...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic training has become an important part of surgical education. Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is the most common bariatric procedure performed. Surgeons must be well trained prior to operating on a patient. Multimodality training is vital for bariatric surgery. E-learning with videos is a standard approach for training. The present study investigates whether scoring the operation videos with performance checklists improves learning effects and transfer to a simulated operation...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery is a well-tolerated and effective treatment for severe obesity. Newer surgical techniques and equipment have improved safety standards surrounding bariatric surgery. In particular, buttressing of the staple line in sleeve gastrectomy has decreased rates of clinically significant postoperative bleeding. The present study investigates the effectiveness of buttressing the circular stapled anastomosis during laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). SETTING: Academic, accredited hospital...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative upper gastrointestinal series (UGI) has never been shown to be effective in ruling out leaks or obstruction after gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy. In sleeve gastrectomies, UGI will define the shape of the sleeve and rule out a retained fundus that was not optimally excised during surgery. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to investigate the impact of a "retained fundus" on weight loss to determine whether UGIs can be used to gauge success of the operation and predict outcome...

Many surgeons believe that one anastomosis (mini) gastric bypass (OAGB/MGB) is associated with a high marginal ulcer (MU) rate and that this is associated with complications in a significant number of patients. The purpose of this survey was to find out the participant-reported incidence of MU after OAGB/MGB and its complications. We also aimed to understand practices in this cohort concerning prophylaxis, diagnosis, treatment and management of complications. Bariatric surgeons who perform OAGB/MGB procedures were invited to participate in a confidential, online survey using SurveyMonkey®...

We aim to review the available literature on obese patients treated with laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) or laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) after failed laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), in order to compare the clinical outcomes of the two methods. A systematic literature search was performed in PubMed, CENTRAL, and Scopus databases, in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines. Eight studies met the inclusion criteria incorporating 635 patients. Both procedures are associated with comparable complications, conversions, mean hospital stay, and weight loss at 6 and 12 months...

INTRODUCTION: One anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) demonstrated results similar to traditional Roux-en-Y procedures [1-3], in terms of weight loss and resolution of obesity-related comorbidities. The main controversy regarding OAGB is the concern for an association between biliary alkaline gastritis and esophageal or gastric cancer raised by some studies [4]. METHODS: We present the case of a 51-year-old woman with a BMI of 41 kg/m2 who underwent a laparoscopic OAGB in 2014...

Zubaidah Nor Hanipah, Philip R Schauer
Sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, gastric banding, and duodenal switch are the most common bariatric procedures performed worldwide. Ninety-five percent of bariatric operations are performed with minimally invasive laparoscopic technique. Perioperative morbidities and mortalities average around 5% and 0.2%, respectively. Long-term weight loss averages around 15% to 25% or about 80 to 100 lbs (40-50 kg). Comorbidities, including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, sleep apnea, arthritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, improve or resolve after bariatric surgery...

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) on the peripheral blood microRNAs (miRNAs) of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). miRNAs are small 20- to 22-nucleotide (nt) noncoding RNAs. They constitute a novel class of gene regulators that negatively regulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. miRNAs play an important role in several biological processes. Twelve patients with T2DM who were scheduled to undergo laparoscopic RYGB surgery were separated into two groups, using a body mass index of 30 kg/m2 as a cut-off point...
