Case Report: Endoscopic Removal of an Eroded Gastric Band Causing Small Bowel Obstruction upon Migration into the Proximal Jejunum.

Obes Surg 2020 Dec 11;30(12):5153-5156. Epub 2020 Aug 11.

Department of Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery, Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur, CIUSSS du Nord de l'île de Montréal, 5400 Boulevard Gouin Ouest H4J 1C5, Québec, Montréal, Canada.

Background: Adjustable gastric banding (AGB) is on the decline due to its relatively modest amount of expected weight loss, coupled with high rates of revision and complications such as band erosion. Management of eroded gastric bands can be challenging especially when complete intra-gastric erosion is followed by distal migration causing small bowel obstruction.

Methods: We present an endoscopic option of using a pediatric colonoscope to remove an eroded AGB causing jejunal obstruction.

Result: Endoscopic removal of an eroded ABG causing bowel obstruction was successful.

Conclusion: Endoscopy remains a safe and relatively non-invasive approach to deal with such complications.

Prevalence and 20-year epidemiological trends of glomerular diseases in the adult Saudi population: a multicenter study.

Ann Saudi Med 2019 May-Jun;39(3):155-161. Epub 2019 May 30.

From Deaprtment of Internal Medicine, King Abdulaziz Medical City, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Background: Recent international reports have shown significant changes in the incidence of different glomerular diseases.

Objective: Examine temporal and demographic trends of biopsy-diagnosed glomerular diseases in the adult population of Saudi Arabia over the last two decades.

Design: Medical record review.

Settings: Four tertiary medical centers in Saudi Arabia.

Patients And Methods: We identified all patients that underwent native kidney biopsy between 1998 and 2017.

Main Outcome Measures: The frequency and the disease trends in four biopsy eras (1998-2002, 2003-2007, 2008-2011, and 2012-2017) for different glomerular diseases.

Sample Size And Characteristics: 1070 patients, 18-65 years of age; 54.1% female.

Results: Of 1760 patients who underwent native kidney biopsies, 1070 met inclusion criteria. Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis was the most common biopsy-diagnosed disease, with comparable frequencies over the four eras (23.6%, 19.8%, 24.1%, and 17.1, respectively [ P value for trend=.07]). The frequency of immunoglobulin A nephropathy increased progressively. The incidence of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis declined significantly. Among the secondary types of glomerular diseases, systemic lupus erythematosus-associated lupus nephritis was the most common, followed by diabetic nephropathy. The prevalence of diabetic nephropathy increased from 1.4% in the first era to 10.2% in the last one.

Conclusions: Trends in biopsy-diagnosed glomerular disease have changed. While focal segmental glomerulosclerosis remains the most common glomerular disease, there has been a significant rise in the prevalence of immunoglobulin A nephropathy and diabetic nephropathy. In contrast, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis has declined.

Limitations: Retrospective methodologies are vulnerable to lost data.

Conflict Of Interest: None.
