BACKGROUND: Although vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) is no longer performed in the USA, due to its popularity in 1980s, many patients still possess this anatomy with its inherent complications. The stomal stenosis secondary to tight ring or mesh is traditionally treated with surgical removal of the silastic ring or a complex revision, which was hampered by complications, technical complexity, and invasiveness. We described our experience of endoscopic management of this complex problem and the early outcomes...

RATIONALE: Blood gas analysis is often used to assess acid-base, ventilation, and oxygenation status in critically ill patients. Although arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis remains the gold standard, venous blood gas (VBG) analysis has been shown to correlate with ABG analysis and has been proposed as a safer less invasive alternative to ABG analysis. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the correlation of VBG analysis plus pulse oximetry (SpO2) with ABG analysis...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery for severe obesity has become an effective and accepted treatment for sustained weight loss. OBJECTIVES: The aim of our study was to analyze the complications and issues raised by the experts on which jury or judges' decisions were made for the different types of bariatric surgery. SETTING: University Hospital, France. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We have carried out a retrospective study of 59 expert review dossiers over a period of 15 years (1999-2014) on the different types of bariatric surgery (laparoscopic adjustable gastric band [LAGB], sleeve gastrectomy [SG], Roux-en-Y gastric bypass [RYGB], vertical banded gastroplasty [VBG], and gastric plication [GP])...

OBJECTIVE: Venous blood gas (VBG) analysis is suggested as an alternative to arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis. In haemodynamically stable patients, there is clinically acceptable arteriovenous (AV) agreement for pH and bicarbonate (HCO3-) concentration, but in haemodynamically unstable patients, evidence is conflicting. We aimed to evaluate the level of AV agreement for the values of pH, PCO2, base excess, HCO3- and lactate between ABGs and VBGs in critically ill patients with varying degrees of hypotension...

OBJECTIVE: Duplex ultrasound (DUS) imaging for vein bypass graft (VBG) surveillance is confounded by technical and physiologic factors that reduce the sensitivity for detecting impending graft failure. In contrast, three-dimensional computed tomography angiography (CTA) offers high-fidelity anatomic characterization of VBGs, but its utility in detecting at risk grafts is unknown. The current study analyzed the correlation between DUS and CTA for detection of vein graft stenosis and evaluated the relationship of the observed abnormalities to VBG failure...

Blood gas analysis is an integral part of the assessment of emergency department (ED) patients with acute respiratory or metabolic disease. Traditionally ABG analyses have been used, but increasingly, emergency clinicians are using venous blood gas (VBG) analyses. This has been challenged, especially by respiratory physicians, as being too inaccurate. This clinical review, using case examples, summarises the evidence supporting use of VBG to guide management decisions. Arteriovenous agreement for pH is such that values are clinically interchangeable and agreement for bicarbonate is also close...

BACKGROUND: The vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) used to be a common restrictive bariatric procedure but has been abandoned by many due to a high failure rate, a high incidence of long-term complications, and the newer adjustable gastric band (AGB) and sleeve. However, potential favorable long-term results and the upcoming banded gastric bypass, with a similar mechanical outlet restriction and control of the pouch size, renewed our interest in the VBG. Therefore, we investigated the long-term outcome of primary VBG at the Catharina Hospital in the Netherlands...

BACKGROUND: Arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis is useful in evaluation of the clinical condition of critically ill patients; however, arterial puncture or insertion of an arterial catheter may cause many complications. The aim of this study was to determine whether venous blood gas (VBG) values can be used as an alternative to arterial blood gas measurements in patients under mechanical ventilation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was carried out on patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of Kashan Beheshti Hospital...

AIM: To characterize differences of arterial (ABG) and venous (VBG) blood gas analysis in a rabbit model of hemorrhagic shock. METHODS: Following baseline arterial and venous blood gas analysis, fifty anesthetized, ventilated New Zealand white rabbits were hemorrhaged to and maintained at a mean arterial pressure of 40 mmHg until a state of shock was obtained, as defined by arterial pH ≤ 7.2 and base deficit ≤ -15 mmol/L. Simultaneous ABG and VBG were obtained at 3 minute intervals...

BACKGROUND: Identifying factors that influence weight loss after bariatric surgery is one way to predict a successful surgical outcome. Knowledge of the effect of gender on weight loss after bariatric surgery has not been well demonstrated in the literature despite being noted in every day practice. The aim of this study was to find the influence of gender on long-term weight loss after bariatric surgery. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of data retrieved from a prospectively maintained bariatric database was conducted...

Surgical interventions have proven to be more effective than other measures in the treatment of morbid obesity. The short-term outcomes of the various surgical interventions have been well documented in the literature, with fewer reports on long-term outcomes. The reported long-term outcome of the vertical-banded gastroplasty (VBG) is conflicting. The aim of the present study was to evaluate our long-term experience with VBG. A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database was conducted. Records of patients who underwent VBG five or more years ago were retrieved...

BACKGROUND: The long-term results of Roux-en-$\hbox{Y}$ gastric bypass (gastric bypass) and vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) from randomized studies have not been described in detail. METHODS: Patients were randomized to gastric bypass or VBG. Body mass index (BMI), body composition, eating habits and gastrointestinal hormones were reviewed after 6 years. The frequency of reoperation was assessed up to 10 years after surgery. RESULTS: Sixty-six (80 per cent) of the 82 subjects randomized were assessed for weight and BMI 6 years after surgery, 30 (81 per cent) in the gastric bypass group and 36 (80 per cent) in the VBG group...
