Objective: To describe the theoretical and clinical implications of the neuropsychological evaluation of a case of bariatric surgery-related Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Method: The patient was a 37-year old, female, bilingual, bachelor's degree educated, Mexican American public relations consultant without preexisting psychiatric, neurological, or substance abuse history. Recovery from laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery for morbid obesity was complicated by intraabdominal abscess, multibacterial infection, and prolonged nausea and vomiting...

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has reached wide popularity during the last 15 years, due to the limited morbidity and mortality rates, and the very good weight loss results and effects on comorbid conditions. However, there are concerns regarding the effects of LSG on gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The interpretation of the current evidence is challenged by the fact that the LSG technique is not standardized, and most studies investigate the presence of GERD by assessing symptoms and the use of acid reducing medications only...

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a therapeutic option in severely obese patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the presence of Helicobacter pylori (HP) gastritis and non-Helicobacter gastritis in the gastrectomy specimens, and its association to other variables.One hundred six sleeve gastrectomy specimens were examined histopathologically for the presence of gastritis and its relation to other factors like ethnicity, glycemic control, and postoperative complications.Twelve patients had HP gastritis, 39 had non-HP gastritis, and 55 had normal mucosa...

BACKGROUND: One of the ultimate goals of bariatric and metabolic surgery is to decrease cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Obese individuals who smoke tobacco are at an increased risk of cardiovascular events and may benefit the most by positive effects of bariatric surgery on cardiometabolic risk factors. The safety profile of sleeve gastrectomy in patients who smoke has not yet been characterized. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the independent effect of smoking on early postoperative morbidity and mortality of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy...

BACKGROUND: While previous studies have demonstrated short-term efficacy of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in candidates awaiting renal transplantation, the combination of morbid obesity and end-stage renal disease presents unique challenges to perioperative care. We demonstrate how increasing experience and the development of postoperative care guidelines can improve outcomes in this high-risk population. METHODS: Single-center medical records were reviewed for renal transplantation candidates undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy between 2011 and 2015 by a single surgeon...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery may diminish cardiovascular risk (CVR) and its associated mortality. However, studies that compare these effects with different techniques are scarce. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the changes in CVR as estimated by carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) after obesity surgery in women with high CVR as defined by the presence of metabolic syndrome. SETTING: Academic hospital. METHODS: We studied 40 severely obese women, of whom 20 received laparoscopic Roux en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and 20 received sleeve gastrectomy (SG)...

BACKGROUND: Patients with a body mass index (BMI) >35 kg/m(2) who need kidney transplant present with increased postoperative mortality and reduced kidney graft survival compared to patients with a lower BMI. For this reason, obese patients are often excluded from the transplantation waiting list. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and the results of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) for obese patients awaiting a kidney transplant. METHODS: This was a retrospective study on patients with dialysis-dependent renal failure (DDRF) operated on at two first-level bariatric centers in Paris (France)...

BACKGROUND: Despite evidence on gallstone disease after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), there is an existing lack of consensus on practice guidelines, i.e., surveillance and stone-lowering prophylaxis. Available evidence also has a racial bias as western reports predominate current data. Considering the growing popularity of LSG in Asia and the unique Asian anthropometrics, we have attempted to provide a regional perspective by reviewing our LSG database to investigate the epidemiology of this complication...

BACKGROUND: Numerous studies have demonstrated that bariatric surgery is an effective intervention for morbid obesity, but study samples are characterized by an underrepresentation of young adult patients. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate weight loss, dietary adherence, and quality of life (QoL) in a multicenter, young adult sample, in the first 6 years after bariatric surgery. SETTING: Four general hospitals in the Netherlands...

BACKGROUND: Optimizing postoperative patient outcomes and nutritional status begins preoperatively. Patients should be educated before and after weight loss surgery (WLS) on the expected nutrient deficiencies associated with alterations in physiology. Although surgery can exacerbate preexisting nutrient deficiencies, preoperative screening for vitamin deficiencies has not been the norm in the majority of WLS practices. Screening is important because it is common for patients who present for WLS to have at least 1 vitamin or mineral deficiency preoperatively...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of the present study is to evaluate postoperative analgesic outcome of the continuous bilateral transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block using bupivacaine infusion through an epidural catheter inserted through laparoscopic ports. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety patients assigned for laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) were divided into two equal groups according to postoperative analgesia: Control group received IV morphine, and TAP group received bupivacaine 0...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have been investigated to find the long-term effect of bariatric surgery on weight loss; nevertheless, a meta-analysis can detailedly demonstrate the effect of bariatric surgery on weight in morbidly obese patients. This study aimed to assess the long- and very long-term effects of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB), and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on weight loss in adults. METHODS: An electronic search using PubMed, Scopus, and Google scholar databases was performed for all English-language articles up to May 15, 2016 with no publication date restriction...

BACKGROUND: Leaks after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) are serious complications of this procedure. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the costs of leaks after LSG. SETTING: Private hospital, France. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted on a prospective cohort of 2012 cases of LSG between September 2005 and December 2014. Data were collected on all diagnostic and therapeutic measures necessary to manage leaks, ward, and intensive care unit (ICU) length of stay...

OBJECTIVE: There is still a lack of a universally applicable and comprehensive scoring system for documenting the invasiveness of surgical procedures. The proposed preliminary 'Universal Surgical Invasiveness Score' (pUSIS) is intended to fill this gap. METHODS: We used the recently developed pUSIS to obtain values from 8 types of surgery and 80 individual interventions. The results were analysed using descriptive statistical methods. The degree of difficulty on a scale from 0 (very easy) to 10 (extremely difficult) and time expenditures for assessing pUSIS were documented...

AIM: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has proven to be the most effective strategy for the treatment of morbid obesity, however its efficacy and safety in an aging population has not yet been confirmed. In this study, we evaluated the effectiveness and safety of LSG in elderly obese Japanese patients. METHODS: Three obese individuals aged >60 years and 11 obese individuals aged <60 years who underwent LSG were enrolled. Pre- and postoperative changes after at least 12 months were examined, including bodyweight, body mass index, total weight loss, excess weight loss, bone mineral density and bone-related markers...

BACKGROUND: The necessity for reoperation due to insufficient weight loss after bariatric surgery has led to a novel endoluminal plication of the gastric sleeve using a endoscopic suturing device. Advances in endoluminal endoscopy and other minimally invasive bariatric surgeries have inspired innovative techniques and have produced reliable suturing tools for gastric volume reduction. METHODS: Retrospective pilot case series of 5 patients with an enlarged gastric sleeve...
