Single Anastomosis Jejuno-ileal (SAJI): a New Model of Malabsorptive Revisional Procedure for Insufficient Weight Loss or Weight Regain After Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass.

Obes Surg 2022 Jun 28. Epub 2022 Jun 28.

Metabolic & Obesity Unit, Chirec Delta Hospital, Brussels, Belgium.

Background: In case of insufficient weight loss or weight regain or relapse of weight-related comorbidities after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), other procedures such as reduction of a large gastric pouch and stoma, lengthening of the Roux limb, conversion to sleeve gastrectomy and/or bilio-pancreatic diversion with duodenal switch have been advocated. Single anastomosis jejuno-ileal (SAJI) is a new revisional simple operation performed after RYGB failure which adds malabsorption to the previous gastric bypass.

Methods: SAJI includes a single jejuno-ileal anastomosis specifically joining the ileum 250-300 cm proximal to the ileo-caecal valve and the jejunum 30 cm below the gastro-jejunal anastomosis on the Roux limb of the previous RYGB. Read More

Left Paraduodenal Hernia in a Young Patient with Recurrent Abdominal Pain: A Case Report and Short Literature Review.

Am J Case Rep 2022 Jun 4;23:e935413. Epub 2022 Jun 4.

Department of General Surgery and Medical-Surgical Specialties, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

BACKGROUND Internal hernias are a rare cause of small bowel obstruction in patients, which usually have a long history of mild abdominal symptoms, sometimes leading to emergency surgery due to acute abdominal pain. Occasionally, it takes a long time to make the correct diagnosis because of symptoms vagueness and transience of typical imaging findings; at times, a definitive diagnosis is possible only through surgery, especially in cases of acute presentations in a low-resource setting where high-performance diagnostic equipment may be unavailable. CASE REPORT We report the case of a young male patient with a long history of mild abdominal symptoms and some episodes of acute abdominal pain. Read More

Int J Surg Case Rep 2022 Jun 11;95:107175. Epub 2022 May 11.

Pediatric Surgery, Cairo University, Egypt.

Introduction: Gastroschisis a common congenital anomaly in the anterior abdominal wall, the bowel is present outside the abdominal cavity, completely devoid of any coverings, management of gastroschisis involves umbilical cord graft coverage of the defect after bowel reduction when there are concerns about compartmental syndrome, this is a widely used technique but there are few reports about the incidence umbilical hernia development after this technique and need for future repair of the defect.

Presentation Of Cases: We had 8 patients with simple gastroschisis who had umbilical cord graft coverage of the defect at birth between 2017 and 2020, we present 4 patients who had the cord graft without cutting of rectus fascia, 2 patients resolved spontaneously and 2 developed an umbilical hernia requiring repair.

Discussion: Umbilical cord graft has been reported in several studies, in those studies the authors reported the spontaneous closure of the defect and some reported that incising the rectus fascia will contribute to development of the umbilical hernia, in our series the rectus fascia was preserved yet 2 patients developed umbilical hernia.
