Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for nonobese patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes: a long-term evaluation.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Department of Surgery, Hospital das Clínicas, Federal University of Pernambuco, Recife, PE, Brazil.

Background: There is growing evidence that the impact of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) on type 2 diabetes (T2D) occurs regardless of the amount of weight loss. Taking this background into consideration, it is plausible to study this procedure in individuals with lower body mass index (BMI) under clinical treatment failure for uncontrolled T2D.

Evaluating the safety of bariatric surgery for weight loss in class I obesity: A propensity-matched analysis of North American data.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Centre for the Advancement of Minimally Invasive Surgery (CAMIS), Royal Alexandra Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Background: Bariatric surgery is an effective treatment for severe obesity. However, there has been an evolving role for bariatric surgery as a primary treatment in the management of class I obesity.

Objectives: We aimed to assess the safety of surgery by directly comparing surgical outcomes of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) in class I obesity (body mass index [BMI] 30-35 kg/m) with those with class II obesity (BMI 35-40 kg/m) and higher (BMI >40 kg/m) using an analysis of a large-scale matched-patient cohort analysis.

Psychopathology, disordered eating, and impulsivity as predictors of outcomes of bariatric surgery.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2019 Feb 23. Epub 2019 Feb 23.

Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, College of Public Health, Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Outcomes of bariatric surgery, while frequently impressive, are not universal and vary between patients and across surgical procedures. Between 20% and 30% of patients experience suboptimal weight loss or significant weight regain within the first few postoperative years. The reasons for this are not fully understood, but likely involve both physiologic processes, behavioral factors, and psychological characteristics. Read More

Altered gut microbiome after bariatric surgery and its association with metabolic benefits: A systematic review.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

University of Auckland, School of Medical and Health Sciences, Auckland, New Zealand; Maurice Wilkins Centre, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand. Electronic address:

Bariatric surgery is currently the recommended therapy for significant weight reduction and remission of type 2 diabetes. Different types of bariatric surgery result in dramatic changes to gut bacteria but the contribution of such changes to the metabolic benefits achieved is still unclear. This systematic review of 14 clinical studies, incorporating 222 participants (146 patients with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, 25 with sleeve gastrectomy, 30 with biliointestinal bypass, 7 with vertical banded gastroplasty, and 14 with an adjustable gastric band) reveals generally increased microbial diversity and gene richness after surgery.

Early glycemic control and incretin improvement after gastric bypass: the role of oral and gastrostomy route.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Hospital das Clínicas, Digestive Surgery Department, University of São Paulo Medical School, São Paulo - SP, Brazil.

Background: Patients with obesity have a suppressed incretin effect and a consequent imbalance of glycemic homeostasis. Several studies have shown improved type 2 diabetes after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). The mechanisms of early action are linked to caloric restriction, improvement of insulin resistance, pancreatic beta cell function, and the incretin effect of glycogen-like protein 1 and gastric inhibitory polypeptide, but reported data are conflicting.

Predictors and outcomes of leak after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: an analysis of the MBSAQIP data registry.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2019 Jan 26. Epub 2019 Jan 26.

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada; Centre for the Advancement of Minimally Invasive Surgery (CAMIS), Royal Alexandra Hospital, Edmonton, Canada.

Background: Gastrointestinal leak is one of the most severe postoperative complications after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), occurring in up to 2% of all patients. This has led to adoption of simpler procedures, such as sleeve gastrectomy, which have improved safety profiles but potentially less effective long-term metabolic outcomes. Yet, in contrast to sleeve gastrectomy, a paucity of modern literature exists regarding predictors of leak for RYGB. Read More

Racial disparities in perioperative outcomes after bariatric surgery.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2018 Dec 22. Epub 2018 Dec 22.

Department of Surgery, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Electronic address:

Background: NonHispanic black patients bear a disproportionate burden of the obesity epidemic and its related medical co-morbidities. While bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for morbid obesity, black patients access bariatric surgery at lower rates than nonHispanic white patients.

Objectives: To examine racial differences before bariatric surgery and in short-term perioperative outcomes and complications, and the extent to which race is independently associated with perioperative morbidity and mortality. Read More

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, 2D, Walter C Mackenzie Health Sciences Centre, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada; Centre for the Advancement of Minimally Invasive Surgery (CAMIS), Royal Alexandra Hospital, Edmonton, Canada.

Background: Complications arising from laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) are not insignificant and can necessitate additional invasive interventions or reoperations.

Objectives: In this study, we identify early complications that result in nonoperative and operative interventions after LSG and LRYGB, the timeframe within which to expect them, and factors that influence the likelihood of their occurrence.

Setting: Multi-institutional database from across North America. Read More

Gait changes after weight loss on adolescent with severe obesity after sleeve gastrectomy.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Pediatric Surgery Unit, "Bambino Gesù" Children's Hospital, Rome, Italy.

Background: It has been highlighted that obesity influences the gait reducing walking velocity, stride length, ankle dorsal flexion at initial contact and ankle power generation. Meanwhile, step width, double support, hip flexion, knee extension during stance, hip moment and ankle power absorption was described increased. A tendency to the normalization of these parameters occur when subjects reduced their weight during growth. Read More

The influence of staple height on postoperative complication rates after laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery using linear staplers.

Surg Obes Relat Dis 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine and Health, Örebro University, Örebro, Sweden. Electronic address:

Background: The use of circular staplers with a low staple height is associated with a lower risk for complication when used to construct the gastroenterostomy in laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery. The influence of staple height on outcome when using linear staplers has not been studied.

Objectives: To investigate the influence of staple height when constructing the gastric pouch and gastroenterostomy using a linear stapler in laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery. Read More
