An Unusual Long-Term Complication of Bariatric Surgery.

Cureus 2022 Apr 7;14(4):e23931. Epub 2022 Apr 7.

Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Medical College of Georgia - Augusta University, Augusta, USA.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RNYGB) has become the standard of care in treating obesity, a global health concern with associated comorbidities contributing to rising health care costs [1]. The positive outcomes of RNYGB have been well documented along with adverse effects such as nutrient deficiencies, hernia, postprandial dumping syndrome, chronic kidney disease and hypoglycemia. A lesser-known long term complication of RNYGB is liver failure. Read More

The Role of GLP-1 Signaling in Hypoglycemia due to Hyperinsulinism.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2022 24;13:863184. Epub 2022 Mar 24.

Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, United States.

Incretin hormones play an important role in the regulation of glucose homeostasis through their actions on the beta cells and other tissues. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) are the two main incretins and are secreted by enteroendocrine L- and K-cells, respectively. New evidence suggests that incretin hormones, particularly GLP-1, play a role in the pathophysiology of hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. Read More

Laparoscopic Banded One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass: A Single-Center Series.

J Obes 2022;2022:4942052. Epub 2022 Jan 29.

Department of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery, San Carlo of Nancy Hospital and University of Rome "Tor Vergata", Rome, Italy.

Introduction: Laparoscopic one anastomosis gastric bypass (LOAGB) is a relatively new procedure for the treatment of morbid obesity and related comorbidities. On average, this procedure results in good postoperative weight loss with a low complication rate. Recent publications suggest that dumping syndrome and weight regain might be reduced by placing a silicone ring over the gastric pouch during the procedure, so called laparoscopic banded one anastomosis gastric bypass (LBOAGB).

Emerging Adults Carrying a CDH1 Pathogenic or Likely Pathogenic Variant Face Diet and Lifestyle Challenges after Total Gastrectomy.

J Acad Nutr Diet 2022 May 28;122(5):913-917. Epub 2021 Dec 28.

Clinical Center Nutrition Department, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland; US Public Health Service, Washington, District of Columbia.

Emerging adults with a CDH1 pathogenetic or likely pathogenetic variant face a life-altering decision whether to undergo prophylactic total gastrectomy or to have frequent endoscopies for gastric cancer risk management. They are in a unique life stage with distinct characteristics, such as identity finding, career seeking, relationship exploring, establishing financial independence, and planning for or pursuing pregnancy. Research has shown that these emerging adults heavily weighed dietary and nutrition concerns after prophylactic total gastrectomy in their decision making for both timing of surgery and whether they should or should not undergo the surgery.

Nutritional management of gastric cancer.

Endocrinol Diabetes Nutr (Engl Ed) 2021 Jun-Jul;68(6):428-438. Epub 2021 Oct 12.

Servicio de Endocrinología y Nutrición, Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro Majadahonda, Madrid, Spain.

Gastric cancer is the third leading cause of cancer mortality and is frequently associated with nutritional disorders, the detection and proper management of which can contribute to improving quality of life and survival. Being aware of the consequences and of the different treatments for this neoplasm allows us to offer an adequate nutritional approach. In surgical candidates, integration into ERAS-type programs is increasingly frequent, and includes a pre-surgical nutritional approach and the initiation of early oral tolerance. Read More

Proximal Gastrectomy Is a Viable Alternative to Total Gastrectomy in Early Stage Proximal Gastric Cancer.

JSLS 2021 Jul-Sep;25(3)

Department of Surgery, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, New York, USA (Dr. Schrope).

Background: Total gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y esophagojejunostomy is a life-extending procedure for patients with nonmetastatic proximal gastric and gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma, yet it can be a life-altering procedure with negative impact on quality of life. Perioperative recovery often involves the need for supplemental nutrition (either enteral or parenteral). Furthermore, long-term effects of early satiety, dysphagia, sustained weight loss, and difficulty in maintaining a healthy weight, dumping syndrome, and intestinal overgrowth are not unusual.

Afr J Paediatr Surg 2021 Jul-Sep;18(3):127-132

Department of Pediatrics, The Scientific Center of Pediatrics and Pediatric Surgery, Almaty, Kazakhstan.

Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GER) disease is one of the most common diseases amongst a wide range of chronic inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract in children of all ages, significantly impairing the quality of life of the child and posing a serious threat to the health of the patient. From 2008 to 2019, 134 patients aging from 6 months to 12 years were hospitalised at the Scientific Center for Pediatrics and Pediatric Surgery including 69 (51%) infants. Of them, 51 (38%) were the patients with persistent manifestations of regurgitation, despite an outpatient course of conservative therapy; 29 (22%) patients with recurrent reflux-associated pneumonia; also, 35 (26%) children with GER in the structure of the main pathology of the central nervous system, as well as 19 (14%) patients after surgery of the anastomosis of the oesophagus with its atresia.

Preliminary prospective study of real-time post-gastrectomy glycemic fluctuations during dumping symptoms using continuous glucose monitoring.

World J Gastroenterol 2021 Jun;27(23):3386-3395

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery, Cancer Institute Hospital, Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research, Tokyo 135-8550, Japan.

Background: Although dumping symptoms constitute the most common post-gastrectomy syndromes impairing patient quality of life, the causes, including blood sugar fluctuations, are difficult to elucidate due to limitations in examining dumping symptoms as they occur.

Aim: To investigate relationships between glucose fluctuations and the occurrence of dumping symptoms in patients undergoing gastrectomy for gastric cancer.

Methods: Patients receiving distal gastrectomy with Billroth-I (DG-BI) or Roux-en-Y reconstruction (DG-RY) and total gastrectomy with RY (TG-RY) for gastric cancer (March 2018-January 2020) were prospectively enrolled. Read More

[Postoperative dumping-syndrome with relevant impairment of glucose homeostasis - relief by continuous glucose monitoring and individual therapy with GLP-1 receptor agonists].

Z Gastroenterol 2021 Jun 15;59(6):556-559. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

Innere Medizin, Krankenhaus St. Marienwörth, Bad Kreuznach, Germany.

Dumping syndromes are a common side effect after partial or total gastric resection. The symptoms may be diverse, with vasomotoric reactions, collapse tendencies and digestive disorders (early dumping) as well as blood sugar derailment as a result of too fast absorption of glucose (late dumping).Entrenched therapy concepts, including personalized nutritional concepts and the use of medication as octreotide or diazoxide, will not always lead to the desired results.
