Laparoscopic Diamond Antroduodenostomy for Postcorrosive Pyloric Cicatrization: A Novel Approach.

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

2 Department of Pediatric Surgery, Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt.

Background: Traditionally, Billroth I procedure or bypass gastrojejunostomy were the recommended approaches for management of postcorrosive complete gastric outlet obstruction (GOO), whereas Heineke Mickulicz pyloroplasty was recommended for moderate mucosal injury with partial cicatrization. In this study, laparoscopic diamond antroduodenostomy was carried out as an alternative minimally invasive approach for cases with pyloric cicatricial obstruction.

Patients And Methods: Between January and December 2017, children who were referred to Pediatric Surgery Department, Cairo University Hospital, with GOO as a consequence of caustic liquid ingestions were included in this study. Read More

Laparoscopic Toupet Fundoplication After Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass in Patient with Severe GERD.

Obes Surg 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Surgeon Esophagogastric Unit, Hospital Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Madrid, Spain.

Background: Up to 22% of the patients, after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) can complain about gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms, there is little evidence about the most effective treatment of this situation.

Materials And Method: This video shows a laparoscopic reintervention after a LRYGB in a 42-year-old woman presenting with untreatable GERD. GERD was treated with maximum doses of PPIs with no effect on the symptoms; the patient had a 24-h pH and impedance manometry that showed an acid and non-acid reflux, and for that reason, we decided to perform a laparoscopic fundoplication.

Association of Wearable Activity Monitors With Assessment of Daily Ambulation and Length of Stay Among Patients Undergoing Major Surgery.

JAMA Netw Open 2019 Feb 1;2(2):e187673. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Cedars-Sinai Center for Outcomes Research and Education (CS-CORE), Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California.

Importance: Early postoperative ambulation is vital to minimizing length of stay (LOS), but few hospitals objectively measure ambulation to predict outcomes. Wearable activity monitors have the potential to transform assessment of postoperative ambulation, but key implementation data, including whether digitally monitored step count can identify patients at risk for poor efficiency outcomes, are lacking.

Objectives: To define the distribution of digitally measured daily step counts after major inpatient surgical procedures, to assess the accuracy of physician assessment and ordering of ambulation, and to quantify the association of digitally measured step count with LOS. Read More

Laparoscopic Management of Dilatation of Excluded Stomach After Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass.

Obes Surg 2019 Jan 22. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Department of Digestive, Esogastric and Bariatric Surgery, Bichat-Claude Bernard University Hospital, 46 rue Henri Huchard, F-75018, Paris, France.

Introduction: Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is considered as the gold standard for surgical management of morbid obesity due to its good results on weight loss and correction of comorbidities related to obesity and its few complication rates. Here, we describe a present strategy for dealing with an unusual complication after RYGB, responsible for chronic pain, as a chronic dilatation of excluded stomach.

Methods: The video shows our laparoscopic treatment of an excluded gastric fundus dilatation. Read More

Bile Salt Enterolith: An Unusual Etiology Mimicking Gallstone Ileus.

Case Rep Surg 2018 19;2018:8965930. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

New York Presbyterian-Queens, 56-45 Main Street, Flushing NY 11355, USA.

Primary enterolithiasis is a relatively uncommon but important cause of small bowel obstruction. We present a case of a 69-year-old male with a history of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and asymptomatic duodenal diverticulum diagnosed with small bowel obstruction. CT imaging showed an obstruction distal to the jejunojejunostomy, and surgical intervention was warranted. Read More

Risk Factors for Relapse of Hyperglycemia after Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass in T2DM Obese Patients: a 5-Year Follow-Up of 24 Cases.

Obes Surg 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of General surgery, The First Hospital Affiliated to Army Medical University, P.O. Box 400038, Chongqing, China.

Objectives: To explore the risk factors for relapse of hyperglycemia in obese patients with type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM) who received laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) surgery.

Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on all obese patients with T2DM who underwent a LRYGB during the period 2011-2013. Demographics, preoperative body mass index (BMI), preoperative glycated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), adherence to lifestyle intervention, preoperative medication of insulin, and the time interval between surgery and diagnosis of T2DM were investigated and compared.

Endoscopic vacuum therapy (EVT) for early infradiaphragmal leakage after bariatric surgery-outcomes of six consecutive cases in a single institution.

Langenbecks Arch Surg 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University Hospital Zurich, Raemistrasse 100, 8091, Zurich, Switzerland.

Purpose: Anastomotic leakages or staple line defects after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and primary laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), respectively, with consecutive bariatric revisional surgery are associated with relevant morbidity and mortality rates. Endoscopic vacuum therapy (EVT) with or without stent-over-sponge (SOS) has been shown to be a promising therapy in foregut wall defects of various etiologies and may therefore be applied in the treatment of postbariatric leaks.

Methods: We report the results of six consecutive patients treated with EVT (83% in combination with SOS) for early postoperative leakages in close proximity to the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) after LSG (n = 2) and RYGB (n = 4) from May 2016 to May2018. Read More

Prevalence of Dumping Syndrome After Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy and Comparison with Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass.

Obes Surg 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Mather Hospital Northwell Health, 625 Belle Terre Road, Port Jefferson, NY, 11777, USA.

Background: Dumping syndrome is a well-known side effect of laparoscopic gastric bypass (LRYGB), and it is commonly believed that dumping syndrome is less likely to occur after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), due to the preservation of the pyloric sphincter. However, it is not uncommon for patients undergoing LSG at our center to report symptoms suggestive of dumping syndrome.

Objective: To assess the prevalence of symptoms of dumping syndrome after LSG compared with LRYGB. Read More

Results of conversion of gastric banding to gastric bypass in patients between 50 and 60 years of age are similar to those observed in younger patients.

Am J Surg 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Department of Surgery, Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center, Mount Scopus, Jerusalem, Israel.

Background: The effect of age and gender on outcomes of revisional bariatric surgery has not been assessed.

Methods: A retrospective analysis of patients undergoing revision from laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) to laparoscopic roux en Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) between 2007 and 2017 was performed. Patients were divided according to gender and age (<50 and ≥ 50 years), and the outcomes of the subgroups were compared. Read More

Ursodeoxycholic Acid for 6 Months After Bariatric Surgery Is Impacting Gallstone Associated Morbidity in Patients with Preoperative Asymptomatic Gallstones.

Obes Surg 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Department of General, Visceral and Transplant Surgery, University Hospital Tübingen, Hoppe-Seyler-Strasse 3, 72076, Tübingen, Germany.

Background: Obesity is a predisponing factor for gallstone formation with a prevalence > 10% in patients undergoing gastric bypass procedure. Although there is a strong recommendation for concomitant cholecystectomy in patients with symptomatic gallstones, the evidence level for patients with asymptomatic gallstones is weak. According to recent literature, up to 21% of asymptomatic gallstones become symptomatic after bariatric surgery. Read More
