Weight Loss Medications in Older Adults After Bariatric Surgery for Weight Regain or Inadequate Weight Loss: A Multicenter Study.

Bariatr Surg Pract Patient Care 2018 Dec 10;13(4):171-178. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Comprehensive Weight Control Center, Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, Department of Medicine, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, New York.

Weight loss medications are effective to confer additional weight loss after bariatric surgery in the general population, but they have not been evaluated in adults 60 years of age and older. We performed a retrospective study identifying 35 patients who were ≥60 years old and had undergone Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or sleeve gastrectomy (SG) from 2000 to 2014, and were subsequently prescribed weight loss medications. Linear regression analyses were performed to determine beta coefficients of certain predictor variables being associated with weight loss. Read More

Efficacy of Intravenous Acetaminophen in Length of Stay and Postoperative Pain Control in Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery Patients.

Bariatr Surg Pract Patient Care 2018 Sep;13(3):103-108

Department of Surgery, McLaren Regional Medical Center, Flint, Michigan.

Opiate-based pain medications may incur adverse effects following bariatric surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of intravenous Acetaminophen (IVAPAP) on length of stay (LOS) after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) surgery. This was a prospective, double-blind, randomized controlled trial conducted from October 2011 to March 2014 at a 416-bed teaching hospital. Read More

Bariatr Surg Pract Patient Care 2017 Jun;12(2):67-71

Department of Epidemiology, Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

To determine whether preoperative weight loss goals are associated with postoperative weight loss and whether the effect is modified by preoperative depressive symptoms. Sixty-three women from an ongoing cohort study who were undergoing first-time bariatric surgery at a large, academic hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, were included in this subanalysis. They were assessed preoperatively and 12 months postoperatively in regard to anthropometric and biobehavioral factors. Read More

Initial Weight Loss after Restrictive Bariatric Procedures May Predict Mid-Term Weight Maintenance: Results From a 12-Month Pilot Trial.

Bariatr Surg Pract Patient Care 2015 Jun;10(2):68-73

Department of Endocrinology, Diabetology, and Metabolic Diseases "Mladen Sekso," University Hospital Center "Sestre Milosrdnice," University of Zagreb School of Medicine , Zagreb, Croatia .

Does Preoperative Weight Change Predict Postoperative Weight Loss After Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy?

Bariatr Surg Pract Patient Care 2015 Sep;10(3):126-129

Dwight David Eisenhower Army Medical Center , Fort Gordon, Georgia .

Some institutions and insurance companies mandate a preoperative weight loss regimen prior to bariatric surgery. Previous studies suggest little to no correlation between preoperative and postoperative weight loss for laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RNYGB). This study examined the impact of preoperative weight change for patients undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Read More

Laparoscopic Gastric Plication: An Emerging Bariatric Procedure with High Surgical Revision Rate.

Bariatr Surg Pract Patient Care 2015 Sep;10(3):93-98

Bariatric Unit, Padua University Hospital , Padua, Italy .

Laparoscopic gastric plication (LGCP) reduces gastric volume without resecting or implanting a foreign body. Although still considered investigational, it could be appropriate for young patients with a low body mass index (BMI) and for those unwilling to undergo sleeve gastrectomy, gastric banding, or bypass. The aim of this study was to assess the mid-term results (2 years) of LGCP in terms of safety and efficacy. Read More

Division of General, Minimally Invasive, and Robotic Surgery, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine , Chicago, Illinois.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate presurgical comorbidities, perioperative and postoperative complications, and postsurgical outcomes of minimally invasive bariatric surgery in patients aged 55 years and older to determine if age should be used as a selection criteria for bariatric surgery. A total of 750 patients underwent sleeve gastrectomy or robotic-assisted Roux-en-Y gastric bypass from January 2008 to June 2014. Patients were divided into three groups according to age: <55 years old; ≥55 to <65 years old; and ≥65 years old. Read More

Routine Screening Endoscopy before Bariatric Surgery: Is It Necessary?

Bariatr Surg Pract Patient Care 2014 Dec;9(4):143-149

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Mayo Clinic , Jacksonville, Florida.

Routine esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) prior to bariatric surgery has not been consistently shown to change the management of the patient. A study was performed to estimate the proportion of patients undergoing bariatric surgery evaluation who had abnormal findings on preoperative EGD that resulted in alteration of management and, second, to evaluate potential risk factors for occurrence of abnormal findings on the EGD. An observational, retrospective study in which all 232 patients who were cleared to undergo bariatric surgery and who underwent preoperative EGD between 2006 and 2013 were included at a single tertiary dedicated bariatric center for weight loss management.

Department of General Surgery, McMaster University , Hamilton, Ontario, Canada .

Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) has emerged as the gold standard for the management of morbid obesity. Accordingly, patients who fail to lose weight after LRYGB present a difficult problem for the bariatric surgeons. A literature review was performed to evaluate the management options for this select bariatric population. Read More

Structured Dietary Interventions in the Treatment of Severe Pediatric Obesity: A Pilot Study.

Bariatr Surg Pract Patient Care 2013 Jun;8(2):58-60

Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center , 3811 O'Hara Street, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Background: Structured dietary interventions have been associated with improved outcomes in adult weight-control programs, but virtually no research has focused on children. Thus, we conducted an uncontrolled pilot study to determine the potential utility of structured approaches to enhance the dietary component of family-based treatment of severe pediatric obesity (body mass index [BMI] >97th percentile for age and sex).

Method: Children aged 8-12 years participated with a parent or guardian. Read More
