BACKGROUND: Obesity has been associated with increased risk of perioperative acute kidney injury (AKI). We aim to establish the incidence of AKI among patients undergoing laparoscopic bariatric surgery and identify potential risk factors. METHODS: Records of 1230 patients who underwent laparoscopic bariatric surgery in a tertiary centre from 1 December 2009 to 31 January 2014 were retrospectively studied. AKI diagnosis was made by comparing the baseline and post-operative serum creatinine to determine the presence of predefined significant change based on the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) definition...

BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disease which increases the risk of perioperative complications. The aim of this study is to assess the clinical utility of preoperative screening for OSA in determining the prevalence of patients at high risk of OSA in a surgical population, the incidence of difficult airway management and the incidence of perioperative complications. METHODS: We conducted a multisite, prospective observational study on adult patients scheduled for elective surgery...

BACKGROUND: The loud Snoring, Tiredness, Observed apnea, high blood Pressure (STOP)-Body mass index (BMI), Age, Neck circumference, and gender (Bang) questionnaire is a validated screening tool for identifying obstructive sleep apnea in surgical patients. However, the predictive performance of the STOP-Bang score in obese and morbidly obese patients remains unknown. METHODS: Preoperative patients were approached for consent and were screened for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by the STOP questionnaire...

This study aimed to systematically evaluate the evidence-based literature on fast-track laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) to determine the feasibility and safety of fast-track laparoscopic bariatric surgery. A literature search of PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane Library using the MeSH terms "bariatric surgery", "ambulatory surgical procedures" and related terms as keywords was performed. The study included articles that reported on intended next-day discharge for LRYGB and same-day discharge for LAGB...

BACKGROUND: The STOP-Bang questionnaire is used to screen patients for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). We evaluated the association between STOP-Bang scores and the probability of OSA. METHODS: After Institutional Review Board approval, patients who visited the preoperative clinics for a scheduled inpatient surgery were approached for informed consent. Patients answered STOP questionnaire and underwent either laboratory or portable polysomnography (PSG). PSG recordings were scored manually...

To reevaluate and update evidence-based best practice recommendations published in 2004 for anesthetic perioperative care and pain management in weight loss surgery (WLS), we performed a systematic search of English-language literature on anesthetic perioperative care and pain management in WLS published between April 2004 and May 2007 in MEDLINE and the Cochrane Library. We identified relevant abstracts by using key words, retrieved full text articles, and stratified the resulting evidence according to systems used in established evidence-based models...

OBJECTIVE: To develop evidence-based recommendations that optimize the safety and efficacy of perioperative anesthetic care and pain management in weight loss surgery (WLS) patients. RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES: This Task Group examined the scientific literature on anesthetic perioperative care and pain management published in MEDLINE from January 1994 to March 2004. We also reviewed additional data from other sources (e.g., book chapters). The search yielded 195 abstracts, of which 35 references were reviewed in detail...
