Factors implicated in discharge disposition following elective bariatric surgeryCurrent bariatric surgery studies have focused on traditional outcomes such as mortality and morbidity and have thus far have neglected an important marker of surgical care- discharge destination.
Clinical periodontal conditions in individuals after bariatric surgery: a systematic review and meta-analysisThe aim of the present study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the influence of bariatric surgery on the clinical periodontal conditions in patients with obesity. This review was based on the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses and registered at the International Prospective Registry of Systematic Reviews (CRD42018099313). A search was conducted by 2 investigators in the PubMed/MEDLINE, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library databases for relevant articles published up to May 2018.
One-year follow-up of a dissonance-based intervention on quality of life, wellbeing, and physical activity after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery: a randomized controlled trialHealth-related quality of life (HRQoL) peaks around 1 year after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery, and thereafter, in many patients, slowly deteriorates.
Mental disorders and weight change in a prospective study of bariatric surgery patients: 7 years of follow-upLong-term, longitudinal data are limited on mental disorders after bariatric surgery.
Surgery-related gastrointestinal symptoms in a prospective study of bariatric surgery patients: 3-year follow-upHaving accurate information on bariatric surgery-related gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms is critical for patient care.
Laparoscopic revision of transoral endoscopic vertical gastroplasty to Roux-en-Y gastric bypassThere are a number of endoscopic bariatric therapies, which have been proven to be safe and effective in the treatment of obesity . The transoral endoscopic vertical gastroplasty (TOGA) is an endoscopic procedure in which flexible instruments are introduced through the mouth, passed to the stomach, and used to acquire tissue along the anterior and posterior stomach walls, fold the tissue, and staple it to create a restrictive pouch . This procedure has been shown to be safe and produce up to 44.8% excess weight loss at one year [2,3].
Effect of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass-induced weight loss on the transcriptomic profiling of subcutaneous adipose tissueThe changes in the transcriptomic profiling of subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) when weight loss stabilizes after a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) are still largely unknown.
Risk stratification of serious adverse events after gastric bypass in the Bariatric Outcomes Longitudinal DatabaseThere is now sufficient demand for bariatric surgery to compare bariatric surgeons and bariatric centers according to their postsurgical outcomes, but few validated risk stratification measures are available to enable valid comparisons. The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a risk stratification model of composite adverse events related to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery.
Malrotation—an unexpected finding at laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: a video case reportLaparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) is 1 of the most common procedures performed for severe obesity. Incidental anatomic abnormalities found at surgery are uncommon and can require an alternative operative approach. We present a video case report of a patient incidentally found to have midgut congenital malrotation at LRYGB.
Laparoscopic repair of internal hernia during pregnancy after Roux-en-Y gastric bypassLaparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass as a treatment of severe obesity has increased dramatically in the past decade, and most of the patients have been women [1,2]. The health risks experienced by obese women during pregnancy can be reduced by the weight loss induced by bariatric surgery [3–5], but these patients are at risk of bariatric surgical complications during their pregnancies. Women who have undergone Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for morbid obesity are at risk of internal hernias, intussusception, and small bowel obstruction during pregnancy, which can lead to maternal and/or fetal death .
Intussusception after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypassRoux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) has become one of the preferred surgical options for morbid obesity and has been proved effective [1,2]. Laparoscopic RYGB was first introduced by Wittgrove et al.  in 1994. Laparoscopic RYGB remains a challenging procedure because of postoperative complications associated with high morbidity and mortality. We describe 1 case of intussusception after laparoscopic RYGB.
Gastric bypass for severe obesity: Approaches and outcomesBariatric surgery has experienced unprecedented growth in the United States during the last 10 years . Compared with the late 1980s and early 1990s, when approximately 15,000 bariatric operations were performed each year, in 2003 more than 100,000 bariatric operations were performed in the United States. This growth in bariatric surgery, the fastest-growing major operation in the United States, can be explained by 3 factors: (1) the 4-decades-old epidemic of obesity, (2) steadily improving outcomes for several bariatric operations, and (3) the introduction of laparoscopic bariatric surgery with improved perioperative outcomes.
