INTRODUCTION: Anastomotic leaks are uncommon yet potentially devastating complications after bariatric surgery. While the initial management includes resuscitation and sepsis control, the definitive management often requires endoscopic or surgical interventions. Surgical revision of the initial surgery may be necessary for chronic non-healing fistula. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The patient is a 45-year-old female with history of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding who underwent band removal and conversion to a sleeve gastrectomy (SG) due to her failed weight loss, which resulted in a leak at gastroesophageal junction...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have reported that morbid obesity is associated with increased thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels. However, it is not clear what is the impact of bariatric surgery on postoperative thyroid function. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of weight loss after bariatric surgery on TSH levels in euthyroid patients with morbid obesity. METHODS: We performed a retrospective observational study of 949 euthyroid patients (86...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine whether the DiaRem, a score that predicts type 2 diabetes (T2D) remission following roux-en-y gastric bariatric surgery (RYGB), also predicts remission following laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) in white and Hispanic patients. BACKGROUND: While bariatric surgery is highly effective in reversing insulin resistance, there are patients for whom surgery will not lead to remission...

INTRODUCTION: Sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is one of the most popular bariatric procedures. We present our long-term results regarding weight loss, comorbidities, and gastric reflux disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We identified patients who underwent LSG in our institution between 2006 and 2009. We revised the data, and the patients with outdated contact details were tracked with the national health insurance database and social media (facebook). Each of the identified patients was asked to complete an online or telephone survey covering, among others, their weight and comorbidities...

BACKGROUND: Recruitment into surgical RCTs can be threatened if new interventions available outside the trial compete with those being evaluated. Adapting the trial to include the new intervention may overcome this issue, yet this is not often done in surgery. This paper describes the challenges, rationale and methods for adapting an RCT to include a new intervention. METHODS: The By-Band study was designed in the UK in 2009-2010 to compare the effectiveness of laparoscopic adjustable gastric band and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for severe obesity...

OBJECTIVE: The primary endpoints of this study were long-term weight loss, morbidity, and changes in comorbidities and quality of life. BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery is an effective option for the treatment of severe obesity and its related comorbidities. However, few studies have reported on the long-term outcome (>5 yrs) of bariatric surgery. METHODS: Between 2002 and 2007, 250 patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 to 60 kg/m were randomly assigned to undergo laparoscopic gastric bypass or laparoscopic gastric banding...

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: Often, in severe obesity, diet and physical activity are not enough to achieve a healthy BMI. Bariatric surgical approach, in particular laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), has encouraging results in terms of weight loss and resolution of obesity-related comorbidities. However, several months after LAGB, some patients are enable to lose weight anymore and don't tolerate a further calibration because of its collateral effects (excessive sense of fullness, heartburn, regurgitation and vomiting)...

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...

Context: Increase of bile acids (BAs), fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF19) and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) has been implicated in metabolic improvements after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), whereas data are still conflicting regarding their role after laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB). Objective: To assess fasting BA, FGF19 and GLP-1 concentrations in plasma before and after LAGB and to test for correlations with immuno-metabolic parameters...

Obesity is an important public health priority in the United States. One third of U.S. adults are obese and therefore can expect higher rates of diabetes mellitus, other obesity-related comorbidities, and mortality. In 2013, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, the Obesity Society, and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery issued a guideline that recommended weight loss (bariatric) surgery for all patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 kg/m2 or higher and for those with a BMI of 35 kg/m2 or greater in the presence of at least 1 obesity-related comorbidity...

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric bands are a popular and effective surgical option to treat morbid obesity. The overall complication rate is 10-20% and the most common complication is of 'slippage'. Although other complications such as gastric band migration and erosion have been reported, the phenomenon of a migrated gastric band connecting tube eroding into the colon (after port removal) is seldom reported in the literature. In this article we describe such a case of an incidentally found colonic erosion on colonoscopy and describe the subsequent laparoscopic repair, as well as a review of the literature...

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)...

Sang-Moon Han, Seong Min Kim
PURPOSE: Although laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a popular bariatric procedure, few comprehensive studies have been investigated on the use of non-gastro-gastric sutures (NGGSs) for decreasing postoperative complications. This study aimed to assess and compare the safety and effectiveness of MIDBAND with or without gastro-gastric sutures (GGSs). METHODS: Between February 2013 and March 2014, 41 severely obese patients underwent primary LAGB using pars flaccid technique at double center in South Korea...
