Comparative Effects of Medical Versus Surgical Weight Loss on Body Composition: a Pilot Randomized Trial.

Obes Surg 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Division of General Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Objective: Bariatric surgery leads to more rapid and greater weight loss (WL) compared to medical weight loss (MWL), but the differences in body composition (BC) changes for these modalities remain unclear. Due to the known health risks associated with central adiposity, we compared the changes in regional distribution of fat mass (FM) and lean mass (LM) after surgical versus MWL.

Methods: In this 1:1:1 randomized trial among 15 persons with type 2 diabetes and body mass index (BMI) 30-39. Read More

Modified-ESD Plus APC and Suturing for Treatment of Weight Regain After Gastric Bypass.

Obes Surg 2019 Apr 2. Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endoscopy, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, 75 Francis St., Thorn, Boston, MA, 1404, USA.

Background: Mechanisms for weight regain after gastric bypass are not fully understood and the process is likely multifactorial. The initial step in the management of weight regain is a comprehensive evaluation of contributing factors. While lifestyle modification is fundamental, it has limited efficacy which can be enhanced by medications and/or endoscopic revision. Read More

Percutaneous Image-Guided Abdominal Interventions for Leaks and Fistulas Following Sleeve Gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass.

Obes Surg 2019 Mar 30. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

DAICIM Foundation (Asistencia, Docencia e Investigación en Cirugía Invasiva Mínima), Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Background: Bariatric surgery offers the only effective long-term weight loss therapy for morbidly obese patients. Numerous studies have demonstrated a mortality and morbidity reduction associated with weight loss surgery, but these interventions also have significant rates of complications. It is important for the bariatric surgeons to recognize these complications and acknowledge which of them can be solved in a minimally invasive manner in order to offer to patients the best treatment.

Efficacy of Endoscopic Treatment of Post-Sleeve Gastrectomy Fistulas According to the Radiological Type.

Obes Surg 2019 Mar 30. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

Gastroenterology Unit, Hôpital Avicenne (AP-HP), 125 Rue de Stalingrad, 93000, Bobigny, France.

Background And Aims: The originality of this retrospective study relies on the evaluation of the effectiveness of the endoscopic internal drainage (EID) according to the type of fistula.

Methods: The type of fistula was classified initially according to a CT scan with oral opacification: fistula without a communicating abscess (type I), fistula with a communicating abscess (type II), and fistula with an abscessed sub- and sus-diaphragmatic communicating collection (type III). Treatment algorithm consisted of the insertion of a nasojejunal feeding tube (NJFT) for type I fistulas and the placement of a NJFT with EID with or without surgical drainage for types II and III.

Impact of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy on Gut Permeability in Morbidly Obese Subjects.

Obes Surg 2019 Mar 22. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Else Kröner-Fresenius-Center of Nutritional Medicine, Technical University of Munich, Freising, Germany.

Background: Recent studies have suggested that obesity is associated with an increased intestinal permeability as well as an altered microbiota profile. These conditions can promote the translocation of lipopolysaccharide into the circulation and, subsequently, contribute to the observed systemic inflammation. Our aim was to assess gut permeability in patients with obesity compared to non-obese subjects as well as after excessive weight loss following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Read More
