STUDY OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of therapeutic doses of intravenous acetaminophen (IV APAP) on postoperative opioid use following bariatric surgery. DESIGN: Retrospective review of medical records. SETTING: A 654-bed academic hospital. PATIENTS: Records for 104 patients who underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG; 44 patients) or laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB; 60 patients) were reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether a new anaesthesia protocol can reduce opioid use in obese patients following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. METHODS: This prospective observational case series was conducted in a private hospital in Hong Kong that has been accredited as a Centre of Excellence for Bariatric Surgery. Thirty consecutive patients scheduled for laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy from 1 January 2015 to 31 March 2015 were reviewed. RESULTS: Of the 30 patients, 14 (46...

BACKGROUND: At present, prospectively collected data on rhabdomyolysis (RML) after bariatric surgery are limited. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the incidence, risk factors, and therapeutic strategy of RML in different bariatric procedures. SETTING: University hospitals, Italy. METHODS: Obese patients were prospectively enrolled. Preoperative demographic characteristics and clinical data, as well as type of anesthesia and type and total duration of surgery, were recorded as potential risk factors for RML...

Guidelines are presented for the organisational and clinical peri-operative management of anaesthesia and surgery for patients who are obese, along with a summary of the problems that obesity may cause peri-operatively. The advice presented is based on previously published advice, clinical studies and expert opinion.

BACKGROUND: The goal of this study was to document the relationship between BMI and the components of bariatric surgical operating room (OR) time. METHODS: The Stanford Translational Research Integrated Database Environment identified all patients who underwent laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedures at Stanford University Medical Center between May 2008 and November 2013. The 434 patients were divided into 3 groups: group 1 (n = 213) BMI ≥35 to <45 kg/m(2), group 2 (n = 188) BMI ≥45...

BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyolysis is a relatively uncommon, severe complication of anesthesia and surgery in the morbidly obese. As the use of propofol-based anesthesia has been associated with an increased risk of rhabdomyolysis and metabolic acidosis, this pilot study was designed to assess the effect of propofol anesthesia on the incidence of rhabdomyolysis in morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery. METHODS: Thirty, morbidly obese patients (body mass index 43 ± 3 kg/m(2)) scheduled for bariatric laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy were randomized to receive either propofol (P) or inhalational anesthetic (I)-based balanced general anesthesia...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of giving general anesthesia without the use of any opioids either systemic or intraperitoneal in bariatric surgery. METHODS: Prospective randomized controlled trial. Obese patients (body mass index >50 Kg/m(2)) undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomies were recruited and provided an informed signed consent. Patients were randomized using a computer generated randomization table to receive either opioid or non-opioid based anesthesia...

CONTEXT: Morbidly obese patients are prone for intraoperative hemodynamic disturbances and postoperative airway complications. AIM: Comparison of intraoperative hemodynamics and postoperative recovery characteristics of desflurane versus sevoflurane in morbidly obese patients undergoing laparoscopic bariatric surgery. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After institutional ethics committee approval and written informed consent, 40 morbidly obese patients (BMI > 35 kg/m(2)) were randomized to receive desflurane or sevoflurane as part of a standardized general anesthesia technique...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate efficacy and safety of propofol 350 versus 200 mg for induction of anaesthesia in morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty morbidly obese patients (BMI range 38-60 kg m) were randomized to receive propofol 350 or 200 mg over 60 s for induction of anaesthesia. Bispectral index (BIS) values, induction characteristics and haemodynamic parameters were compared...

BACKGROUND: Morbid obesity and bariatric surgery are both risk factors for the development of postoperative rhabdomyolysis (RML). RML results from injury to skeletal muscle, and a serum creatine phosphokinase (CK) level >1,000 IU/L is considered diagnostic of RML. The aim of this study was to determine if intraoperative intravenous fluid (IVF) volume affects postoperative CK levels following laparoscopic bariatric operations. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, single blinded, and randomized trial was conducted...

BACKGROUND: In obese patients, concomitant use of clonidine and ketamine might be suitable to reduce the doses and minimize the undesired side effects of anesthetic and analgesic drugs. In this study, we evaluated the perioperative effects of administration of clonidine and ketamine in morbidly obese patients undergoing weight loss surgery at a university hospital in Rome, Italy. METHODS: A total of 50 morbidly obese patients undergoing open biliopancreatic diversion for weight loss surgery were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Dexmedetomidine (Dex), an alpha(2) agonist, has well-known anesthetic and analgesic-sparing effects. We designed this prospective, randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled dose-ranging study to evaluate the effect of Dex on both early and late recovery after laparoscopic bariatric surgery. METHODS: Eighty consenting ASA II-III morbidly obese patients were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 treatment groups: (1) control group received a saline infusion during surgery, (2) Dex 0...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Laparoscopic bariatric surgeries are associated with an appreciably high rate of postoperative nausea and vomiting. This study was designed to compare the effectiveness of granisetron either alone or in combination with droperidol or dexamethasone, for the prevention of post operative nausea and vomiting (PONV) in patients undergoing laparoscopic bariatric surgeries. METHODS: In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 120 patients received either Granisetron 1 mg, Granisetron 1 mg plus Droperidol 1...
