BACKGROUND: Staple line leakage is a well-known complication after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Gastric wall thickness and the staple height may be determining factors for the occurrence of insufficiencies. To investigate this problem, an observational cohort study was carried out. Investigation concentrated on the gastroesophageal junction close to the angle of His, since this area is at highest risk for a leakage. METHODS: Fundus wall thickness of 141 specimens after LSG was measured by light microscopy at a predetermined location by a blinded pathologist...

Because growth hormone (GH) secretion is reportedly decreased in obese patients, we examined not only the factors associated with the decreased GH secretion but also GH response to the GH-releasing peptide (GHRP)-2-load test before and after laparoscopic gastrectomy (LSG). The study comprised 28 individuals aged 19-65 years [mean body mass index (BMI), 39.4 ± 9.4 kg/m(2)]. In the univariate analysis, GH secretion peaks correlated negatively with BMI (r = -0.59, p = 0.001), visceral adipose tissue (r = -0...

PURPOSE: Bariatric surgery is a treatment for morbid obesity. Different surgical procedures have been described in order to obtain excess weight loss (EWL), but currently laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is the most commonly performed procedure throughout the world. Reducing abdominal wall trauma and increasing the aesthetic result are important goals for all bariatric surgeons. We conducted a randomized, controlled trial in order to assess if the three-trocar sleeve gastrectomy can be safely carried out or should be abandoned...

Hypothalamic dysfunction leading to severe obesity is a serious long-term consequence of paediatric craniopharyngioma. It compromises quality of life, leads to long-term metabolic hazards, and may shorten life expectancy. Therefore, a proactive approach is required. Conventional treatment of hypothalamic obesity is difficult and hardly successful. Experience with bariatric surgery is limited, especially in younger patients. Two retrospective studies recently reported on classic bariatric surgery in a small series of individuals after craniopharyngioma...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative pain control for morbidly obese patients represents a challenge because of their sensitivity towards opioid-induced respiratory depression. We elected both dexmedetomidine and xylocaine (lidocaine) continuous infusions as adjuvants because they lack respiratory depression side effect. METHODS: 150 ASA I to III patients were enrolled in the study, randomly allocated into three equal parallel groups; the control, lidocaine or dexmedetomidine group...

PURPOSE: A lack of well-defined postoperative imaging guidelines for bariatric patients may lead to false-positive findings, radiation exposure, additional cost, and patient anxiety. We investigated our institutional usage and utility of nonroutine postoperative abdominal imaging. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Laparoscopic gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy patients over a 5-year period were retrospectively identified. All bariatric-related nonroutine initial and all subsequent prompted abdominal and pelvic imaging was included...

BACKGROUND: Portomesenteric vein thrombosis (PMVT) is considered a rare and potentially fatal complication of bariatric surgery. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is one of the most performed bariatric procedures in the world. PMVT in LSG was first reported in 2009 by Berthet et al. in a thrombophilic patient. No data exist regarding the real prevalence of this complication specifically after LSG. METHODS: We examined retrospectively all the clinical records of patients who underwent LSG for morbid obesity from January 2011 to December 2016...

BACKGROUND: In the past, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) seemed to be a promising bariatric procedure. However, many studies showed high rates of reoperation due to complications or insufficient weight loss. There is a lack of long-term studies with follow-up beyond 15 years. OBJECTIVE: To conduct long-term follow-up of patients after LAGB and analyze their weight loss as a primary endpoint. SETTING: Tertiary referral center for bariatric surgery, St...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery has substantial health benefits; however, some patients desire body contouring (BC) procedures following rapid weight loss. There is a paucity of data regarding the true rate of BC following bariatric procedures. The purpose of our study is to examine the utilization of two common procedures, abdominoplasty, and panniculectomy, following bariatric surgery in New York State. METHODS: The SPARCS longitudinal administrative database was used to identify bariatric procedures by using ICD-9 and CPT codes between 2004 and 2010...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has become the most frequently performed bariatric procedure worldwide. De novo reflux might impact patients' quality of life, requiring lifelong proton pump inhibitor medication. It also increases the risk of esophagitis and formation of Barrett's metaplasia. Besides weight regain, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is the most common reason for conversion to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. METHODS: We performed 24-h pH metries, manometries, gastroscopies, and questionnaires focusing on reflux (GIQLI, RSI) in SG patients with a follow-up of more than 10 years who did not suffer from symptomatic reflux or hiatal hernia preoperatively...

BACKGROUND: Gastric leak is the most common and dreaded post-operative infectious complication (PIC) after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Accurate identification of patients at risk postoperatively is of cardinal importance. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to assess the diagnostic performance of C-reactive protein (CRP) in predicting PICs and the most optimal time to measure it. METHODS: CRP results were collected in patients undergoing LSG between 2011 and 2015...

INTRODUCTION: The performance of most bariatric procedures within an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery program has resulted in significant advantages, including a reduction in the length of hospital stay to 2-3 days. However, some postoperative complications may appear after the patient has been discharged. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of various acute-phase parameters determined 24 h after a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy for predicting staple line leak in the postoperative course...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is becoming a leading primary bariatric surgery but long-term outcome remains unclear. The amount of food eaten is drastically reduced after LSG and may lead to nutritional deficiencies potentially. The aim of this study is to investigate long-term dietary intake and weight status after LSG. METHODS: Forty patients underwent LSG had more than 5-year follow-up with complete clinical data and food frequency questionnaires were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: No method preoperatively predicts the postoperative bariatric surgery outcomes in individual patients. Decisions for or against surgery and operation choice remain subjective. Only 1% of qualifying patients embrace bariatric surgery. OBJECTIVE: To predict preoperatively and validate prospectively the weight and co-morbidity resolution in individual patients after open Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB), laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB), sleeve gastrectomy (SG), and biliopancreatic diversion/duodenal switch (BPD/DS)...
