Bariatric revision surgery is associated with several complications that can be attributed to decreased quality of tissue and complexity of the surgery. A laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a simple technique with potential advantages. Therefore, the results of this procedure were evaluated as a revisional option. Fifty-one patients underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Indications for the LSG were insufficient weight loss (34 patients, group 1) or vomiting (17 patients, group 2) following a laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) or vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG)...

Iatrogenic nerve injuries have been rarely reported following laparoscopic abdominal surgeries. These can be serious complications with the potential for long-term disability. We present a rare case of bilateral sciatic nerve palsy following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy on a super-super-obese male with BMI 78.04 kg/m2. The procedure was completed laparoscopically in 7 hours duration, and in spite of adequate precautions, he developed bilateral sciatic nerve palsy. Nerve conduction studies showed denervation of L5/S1 confirming the diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Malabsorptive bariatic surgery for morbid obesity has been very effective in producing weight loss. However, patients may experience some degree of malnutrition, which may lead to various clinical symptoms, such as fatigue and weakness. Morbid obesity is often associated with impaired reproductive function, and weight loss generally improves sexual function in both sexes. However, women with extreme weight loss may experience secondary amenorrhea. In men, zinc deficiency may lead to impaired testosterone synthesis resulting in hypogonadism and impotency...
