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.
Hypopharyngeal perforation with mediastinal dissection during orogastric tube placement: a rare complication of bariatric surgeryAlthough currently considered the most successful treatment for morbid obesity, bariatric surgery is associated with certain complications. Placement of an orogastric tube or bougie has resulted in complications because of overstapling or suturing [1,2]. Iatrogenic upper aerodigestive tract perforation, such as hypopharyngeal or esophageal perforation, can occur during endotracheal intubation or esophagogastroduodenoscopy [3,4] and, by contrast, is extremely rare after placement of an orogastric tube or bougie in bariatric surgery [3–8].
Modification of Belsey (Mark IV) fundoplication in the management of hiatal hernia and gastroesophageal reflux disease after sleeve gastrectomy: a case reportGastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition seen commonly in the bariatric surgery population. Although some operations, such as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, are known to be associated with a reduced incidence of reflux postoperatively, the prevalence of GERD after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) may be increased by 2.1% ~ 34.9% . In addition, it is still controversial for the treatment of medication-refractory GERD after LSG. Here, we report the surgical management of a patient, suffering from acid reflux, heartburn, and vomiting, with a modified laparoscopic Belsey (Mark IV) fundoplication 2 years after a successful LSG operative for obesity.
