Surgical procedures aimed at affecting metabolism and producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.
The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.
Surgical procedure in which the STOMACH is transected high on the body. The resulting small proximal gastric pouch is joined to any parts of the SMALL INTESTINE by an end-to-side SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS, depending on the amounts of intestinal surface being bypasses. This procedure is used frequently in the treatment of MORBID OBESITY by limiting the size of functional STOMACH, food intake, and food absorption.
Surgical procedures involving the STOMACH and sometimes the lower ESOPHAGUS to correct anatomical defects, or to treat MORBID OBESITY by reducing the size of the stomach. There are several subtypes of bariatric gastroplasty, such as vertical banded gastroplasty, silicone ring vertical gastroplasty, and horizontal banded gastroplasty.
Decrease in existing BODY WEIGHT.
A surgical procedure which diverts pancreatobiliary secretions via the duodenum and the jejunum into the colon, the remaining small intestine being anastomosed to the stomach after antrectomy. The procedure produces less diarrhea than does jejunoileal bypass.
A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).
The discipline concerned with WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY.
A procedure consisting of the SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS of the proximal part of the JEJUNUM to the distal portion of the ILEUM, so as to bypass the nutrient-absorptive segment of the SMALL INTESTINE. Due to the severe malnutrition and life-threatening metabolic complications, this method is no longer used to treat MORBID OBESITY.
Excretion of an excessive amount of OXALATES in the urine.
Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.
A condition due to a deficiency of one or more essential vitamins. (Dorland, 27th ed)
The period before a surgical operation.
A Y-shaped surgical anastomosis of any part of the digestive system which includes the small intestine as the eventual drainage site.
A procedure in which a laparoscope (LAPAROSCOPES) is inserted through a small incision near the navel to examine the abdominal and pelvic organs in the PERITONEAL CAVITY. If appropriate, biopsy or surgery can be performed during laparoscopy.
An indicator of body density as determined by the relationship of BODY WEIGHT to BODY HEIGHT. BMI=weight (kg)/height squared (m2). BMI correlates with body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE). Their relationship varies with age and gender. For adults, BMI falls into these categories: below 18.5 (underweight); 18.5-24.9 (normal); 25.0-29.9 (overweight); 30.0 and above (obese). (National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.
The period following a surgical operation.
Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.
Excision of the whole (total gastrectomy) or part (subtotal gastrectomy, partial gastrectomy, gastric resection) of the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Voluntary authorization by a person not of usual legal age for diagnostic or investigative procedures, or for medical and surgical treatment. (from English A, Shaw FE, McCauley MM, Fishbein DB Pediatrics 121:Suppl Jan 2008 pp S85-7).
The period of care beginning when the patient is removed from surgery and aimed at meeting the patient's psychological and physical needs directly after surgery. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
Abnormal passage communicating with the STOMACH.
Loss of the tooth substance by chemical or mechanical processes
Observation of a population for a sufficient number of persons over a sufficient number of years to generate incidence or mortality rates subsequent to the selection of the study group.
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
Care given during the period prior to undergoing surgery when psychological and physical preparations are made according to the special needs of the individual patient. This period spans the time between admission to the hospital to the time the surgery begins. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
General term for a group of MALNUTRITION syndromes caused by failure of normal INTESTINAL ABSORPTION of nutrients.
Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.
Agents that increase energy expenditure and weight loss by neural and chemical regulation. Beta-adrenergic agents and serotoninergic drugs have been experimentally used in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) to treat obesity.
Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
The time periods immediately before, during and following a surgical operation.
A peptide of 36 or 37 amino acids that is derived from PROGLUCAGON and mainly produced by the INTESTINAL L CELLS. GLP-1(1-37 or 1-36) is further N-terminally truncated resulting in GLP-1(7-37) or GLP-1-(7-36) which can be amidated. These GLP-1 peptides are known to enhance glucose-dependent INSULIN release, suppress GLUCAGON release and gastric emptying, lower BLOOD GLUCOSE, and reduce food intake.
Criteria and standards used for the determination of the appropriateness of the inclusion of patients with specific conditions in proposed treatment plans and the criteria used for the inclusion of subjects in various clinical trials and other research protocols.
A 36-amino acid peptide produced by the L cells of the distal small intestine and colon. Peptide YY inhibits gastric and pancreatic secretion.
HORMONES secreted by the gastrointestinal mucosa that affect the timing or the quality of secretion of digestive enzymes, and regulate the motor activity of the digestive system organs.
An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.
An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.
The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.
A repeat operation for the same condition in the same patient due to disease progression or recurrence, or as followup to failed previous surgery.
Specialized healthcare delivered as a follow-up or referral from a PRIMARY CARE provider.

Does treating obesity stabilize chronic kidney disease? (1/499)

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a growing health issue in the Western world. Obesity, as part of the metabolic syndrome adds to the morbidity and mortality. The incidence of diabetes and hypertension, two primary etiological factors for chronic renal failure, is significantly higher with obesity. We report a case with morbid obesity whose renal function was stabilized with aggressive management of his obesity. CASE REPORT: A 43-year old morbidly obese Caucasian male was referred for evaluation of his chronic renal failure. He had been hypertensive with well controlled blood pressure with a body mass index of 46 and a baseline serum creatinine of 4.3 mg/dl (estimated glomerular filtration rate of 16 ml/min). He had failed all conservative attempts at weight reduction and hence was referred for a gastric by-pass surgery. Following the bariatric surgery he had approximately 90 lbs. weight loss over 8-months and his serum creatinine stabilized to 4.0 mg/dl. CONCLUSION: Obesity appears to be an independent risk factor for renal failure. Targeting obesity is beneficial not only for better control of hypertension and diabetes, but also possibly helps stabilization of chronic kidney failure.  (+info)

Use and costs of bariatric surgery and prescription weight-loss medications. (2/499)

The extent of use of bariatric surgery and weight-loss medications is unknown. Using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample, we estimate that the number of bariatric surgeries grew 400 percent between 1998 and 2002; such surgeries were performed on 0.6 percent of the 11.5 million adults clinically eligible in 2002. Hospital costs for bariatric surgery grew sixfold to $948 million in 2002. The inpatient death rate declined 64 percent. Among employers that covered weight-loss drugs in 2002, less than 2.4 percent of adults clinically eligible for these drugs used them, with average annual spending of $304 per user.  (+info)

The role of price, sociodemographic factors, and health in the demand for bariatric surgery. (3/499)

OBJECTIVES: To estimate the effect of price, sociodemographic factors, and health on the demand for bariatric surgery among eligible individuals with private health insurance, in order to enable policy makers and insurers to make more informed decisions concerning access to care for bariatric surgery. STUDY DESIGN: We conducted an Internet-based contingent valuation survey of 1802 obese persons eligible for bariatric surgery but who had not undergone the procedure. METHODS: We used multivariate regression analysis to separately estimate the likelihood of having gastric bypass and gastric banding surgery at different out-of-pocket costs. We combined the results with estimates of the privately insured bariatric surgery-eligible population from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1999-2002, to estimate aggregate demand. RESULTS: Out-of-pocket cost was negatively and highly significantly related to the self-reported likelihood of having surgery. Persons with higher incomes and younger persons also reported a significantly higher likelihood of surgery. No effect was found for body mass index or for most comorbidities. We estimate that about 150 000 bariatric operations per year would be demanded by those with private health insurance at an out-of-pocket cost of USD 25 000. At USD 5000, we estimate a demand of 250 000 bariatric operations per year. CONCLUSIONS: Price is significantly and negatively related to the demand for bariatric surgery. At an out-of-pocket cost of USD 5000, about 2.2% of the bariatric surgery-eligible population would strongly consider surgery.  (+info)

A cost-benefit simulation model of coverage for bariatric surgery among full-time employees. (4/499)

OBJECTIVE: To use a simulation model to estimate the costs and benefits of bariatric surgery among full-time employees. STUDY DESIGN: Multivariate regression analysis of nationally representative survey data sets to estimate the costs of obesity and a simulation model of the number of years until breakeven under alternate assumptions about the costs and benefits of bariatric surgery. METHODS: We used a 2-part model to estimate medical costs of obesity based on the 2000-2001 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey. We estimated work loss with a negative binomial regression based on the 2002 National Health Interview Survey. Using these results, we simulated the expected number of years required for a bariatric surgery procedure to become cost saving. RESULTS: Nine percent of the full-time US workforce, or 29% of the obese workforce, is eligible for bariatric surgery. Obese workers eligible for bariatric surgery have 5.1 (P < .01) additional days of work loss and USD 2230 (in 2004 dollars) (P < .01) higher annual medical costs than persons of normal weight. CONCLUSION: Although the cost implications of bariatric surgery among full-time employees depend on many factors, the simulations reveal that 5 or more years of follow-up are most likely required for these operations to become cost saving unless the employee bears a significant fraction of the total costs of the surgery.  (+info)

The progress in bariatric surgery. (5/499)

Morbid obesity, caused by fat tissue accumulation, is a serial multi-factorial chronic disease, with rapidly increasing prevalence in most countries in the world including Poland. Conservative treatment of morbid obesity is almost always unsatisfactory and that is why several surgical methods have been developed. There are four kind of methods: malabsorbtive procedures; restrictive procedures; malabsorbtive/restrictive procedures and experimental procedures. The development of bariatric surgery goes back to 1952 and since that time it has been evolving dynamically. All the surgical methods have benefits and disadvantages. Presently the introduction of minimally invasive surgical techniques seems to be very safe, efficient and cost-effective in treatment for morbid obesity. New methods are also being evaluated, such as gastric myo-electrical stimulation. Bariatric surgery will still be developing until we understand all the factors responsible for it is origin.  (+info)

Bariatric surgery in Poland from 1993 to 2003. (6/499)

Morbid obesity affects about 300, 000 patients in Poland. The number and type of bariatric procedures performed between 1993 and 2003 has been based on data collected from Polish surgeons active in this field. During the years 1993 - 2003, 1285 primary bariatric procedures were performed in total. Amongst these 79.1% were, commonly done as restrictive ones, including vertical banded gastroplasty-76.3%, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding-17.7% and silastic ring vertical gastroplasty-5.5% and at last non-adjustable gastric band with 0.5%. Less popular are malabsorptive procedures - 20.9%, with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass - 79.1% and biliopancreatic diversion 20.9%. During last year 2003: malabsorptive procedures represented one third of all primary procedures and the laparoscopic approach was utilised in 18 % of operations. 61 revisions were reported. There are only three centres with experience in treating more than 100 patients (one of them treated over 600). Two centres have experience in carrying out bariatric surgery for longer than five years. During 1993 - 1997 216 operations were performed. Between 1998 - 2002: 724 procedures, and during last year 345. Patients were treated during last year in ten surgical departments. The number of morbidly obese patients treated surgically in Poland is increasing, but it is still inadequate to meet the growing demand.  (+info)

Gut hormone profiles following bariatric surgery favor an anorectic state, facilitate weight loss, and improve metabolic parameters. (7/499)

OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of bariatric surgery on the entero-hypothalamic endocrine axis of humans and rodents. BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery is the most effective obesity treatment as it achieves substantial and sustained weight loss. Glycemic control and enhanced satiation improve before substantial weight loss occurs. Gut peptides, acting both peripherally and centrally, contribute to glycemic control and regulate food intake. METHODS: We examined meal-stimulated responses of insulin, ghrelin, peptide YY (PYY), glucagon-like-peptide-1 (GLP-1), and pancreatic polypeptide (PP) in humans and rodents following different bariatric surgical techniques. RESULTS: Compared with lean and obese controls, patients following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) had increased postprandial plasma PYY and GLP-1 favoring enhanced satiety. Furthermore, RYGB patients had early and exaggerated insulin responses, potentially mediating improved glycemic control. None of these effects were observed in patients losing equivalent weight through gastric banding. Leptin, ghrelin, and PP were similar in both the surgical groups. Using a rodent model of jejuno-intestinal bypass (JIB), we showed elevated PYY and GLP-1 in JIB rats compared with sham-operated rats. Moreover, exogenous PYY reduced food intake and blockade of endogenous PYY increased food intake. Thus, higher plasma PYY following JIB may contribute to reduced food intake and contribute to weight loss. CONCLUSIONS: Following RYGB and JIB, a pleiotropic endocrine response may contribute to the improved glycemic control, appetite reduction, and long-term changes in body weight.  (+info)

Health-related quality of life and depressive symptoms in adolescents with extreme obesity presenting for bariatric surgery. (8/499)

OBJECTIVE: We sought to document health-related quality of life (HRQoL) impairment and depressive symptomatology in adolescents with extreme obesity considering surgical weight loss. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective review of clinical data was conducted for 33 consecutive extremely obese adolescents presenting for evaluation at a bariatric surgery program for adolescents. Adolescents completed the PedsQL and the Beck Depression Inventory. Mothers completed the parent-proxy PedsQL and the Child Behavior Checklist. RESULTS: HRQoL scores from both informants were markedly impaired relative to published norms on healthy youth. Moderate agreement was found for self-reported and parent-proxy HRQoL. Approximately 30% of youth met criteria for clinically significant depressive symptoms when based on self-report and 45% of youth when based on mother report. Only 21% of youth were currently engaged in some form of psychological treatment (eg, medication or therapy). CONCLUSIONS: The day-to-day life of adolescents with extreme obesity seeking bariatric surgery is globally and severely impaired. However, only some of these adolescents demonstrate clinically significant levels of depressive symptomatology. These data will be critical to the development of more informed patient selection criteria and more efficacious treatment paradigms for this vulnerable pediatric subgroup.  (+info)

Bariatric surgery is a branch of medicine that involves the surgical alteration of the stomach, intestines, or both to induce weight loss in individuals with severe obesity. The primary goal of bariatric surgery is to reduce the size of the stomach, leading to decreased food intake and absorption, which ultimately results in significant weight loss.

There are several types of bariatric surgeries, including:

1. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB): This procedure involves creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach and connecting it directly to the middle portion of the small intestine, bypassing the rest of the stomach and the upper part of the small intestine.
2. Sleeve gastrectomy: In this procedure, a large portion of the stomach is removed, leaving behind a narrow sleeve-shaped pouch that restricts food intake.
3. Adjustable gastric banding (AGB): This surgery involves placing an adjustable band around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch and limit food intake.
4. Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD/DS): This is a more complex procedure that involves both restricting the size of the stomach and rerouting the small intestine to reduce nutrient absorption.

Bariatric surgery can lead to significant weight loss, improvement in obesity-related health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and reduced risk of mortality. However, it is not without risks and complications, including infection, bleeding, nutrient deficiencies, and dumping syndrome. Therefore, careful consideration and evaluation by a multidisciplinary team are necessary before undergoing bariatric surgery.

Morbid obesity is a severe form of obesity, defined by a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher or a BMI of 35 or higher in the presence of at least one serious obesity-related health condition, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or sleep apnea. It is called "morbid" because it significantly increases the risk of various life-threatening health problems and reduces life expectancy.

Morbid obesity is typically associated with significant excess body weight, often characterized by a large amount of abdominal fat, that can strain the body's organs and lead to serious medical complications, such as:

* Type 2 diabetes
* High blood pressure (hypertension)
* Heart disease
* Stroke
* Sleep apnea and other respiratory problems
* Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
* Osteoarthritis
* Certain types of cancer, such as breast, colon, and endometrial cancer

Morbid obesity can also have significant negative impacts on a person's quality of life, including mobility issues, difficulty with daily activities, and increased risk of mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety. Treatment for morbid obesity typically involves a combination of lifestyle changes, medication, and in some cases, surgery.

Gastric bypass is a surgical procedure that involves creating a small pouch in the stomach and rerouting the small intestine to connect to this pouch, thereby bypassing the majority of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). This procedure is typically performed as a treatment for morbid obesity and related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and high blood pressure.

The smaller stomach pouch restricts food intake, while the rerouting of the small intestine reduces the amount of calories and nutrients that are absorbed, leading to weight loss. Gastric bypass can also result in hormonal changes that help regulate appetite and metabolism, further contributing to weight loss and improved health outcomes.

There are different types of gastric bypass procedures, including Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and laparoscopic gastric bypass. The choice of procedure depends on various factors such as the patient's overall health, medical history, and personal preferences. Gastric bypass is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for morbid obesity, but like any surgical procedure, it carries risks and requires careful consideration and preparation.

Gastroplasty is a surgical procedure that involves reducing the size of the stomach to treat morbid obesity. It is also known as vertical banded gastroplasty or stomach stapling. In this procedure, a part of the stomach is permanently stapled vertically to create a small pouch at the top of the stomach. This restricts the amount of food that can be eaten at one time and causes a feeling of fullness with smaller amounts of food.

The goal of gastroplasty is to help patients lose weight by reducing their calorie intake, promoting weight loss, and improving overall health. However, it is important to note that gastroplasty requires significant lifestyle changes, including regular exercise and healthy eating habits, to maintain long-term weight loss success.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with gastroplasty, such as infection, bleeding, and complications related to anesthesia. It is important for patients to discuss these risks with their healthcare provider before deciding whether or not to undergo the procedure.

Weight loss is a reduction in body weight attributed to loss of fluid, fat, muscle, or bone mass. It can be intentional through dieting and exercise or unintentional due to illness or disease. Unintentional weight loss is often a cause for concern and should be evaluated by a healthcare professional to determine the underlying cause and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Rapid or significant weight loss can also have serious health consequences, so it's important to approach any weight loss plan in a healthy and sustainable way.

Biliopancreatic diversion is a surgical procedure for the treatment of morbid obesity. It involves creating a small pouch from the lower part of the stomach and connecting it directly to the last portion of the small intestine (ileum), bypassing the majority of the stomach and duodenum. This results in a significant reduction in food intake, as well as malabsorption of nutrients such as fats, proteins, and vitamins.

The procedure is designed to promote weight loss through restriction and malabsorption. The small pouch restricts the amount of food that can be consumed at one time, while the bypassed portion of the intestine reduces the absorption of calories from food. This results in a significant reduction in calorie intake, leading to weight loss.

However, due to the malabsorption of nutrients, patients who undergo biliopancreatic diversion are at risk for nutrient deficiencies and require lifelong supplementation with vitamins and minerals. The procedure also carries a higher risk of complications such as dumping syndrome, ulcers, and malnutrition compared to other weight loss surgeries.

It is important to note that biliopancreatic diversion should only be considered in patients who are severely obese (with a body mass index or BMI greater than 50) and have not been successful with non-surgical weight loss methods. The decision to undergo this procedure should be made in consultation with a team of healthcare professionals, including a bariatric surgeon, dietitian, and mental health professional.

Obesity is a complex disease characterized by an excess accumulation of body fat to the extent that it negatively impacts health. It's typically defined using Body Mass Index (BMI), a measure calculated from a person's weight and height. A BMI of 30 or higher is indicative of obesity. However, it's important to note that while BMI can be a useful tool for identifying obesity in populations, it does not directly measure body fat and may not accurately reflect health status in individuals. Other factors such as waist circumference, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar levels should also be considered when assessing health risks associated with weight.

Bariatric medicine is a medical specialty that deals with the prevention and treatment of obesity and its related conditions. It involves a comprehensive approach to weight management, including diet, physical activity, behavior modification, and in some cases, medications or surgical interventions. The goal of bariatric medicine is to help patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight, reduce their risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and sleep apnea, and improve their overall quality of life.

Bariatric medicine physicians are trained to evaluate patients' medical history, physical examination, and laboratory test results to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for their individual needs. They may also collaborate with other healthcare professionals such as dietitians, psychologists, and surgeons to provide a multidisciplinary approach to weight management.

In addition to treating obesity, bariatric medicine physicians may also help patients manage related conditions such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, sleep apnea, and type 2 diabetes. They may prescribe medications to treat these conditions or recommend lifestyle changes to help control them. Ultimately, the goal of bariatric medicine is to help patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight and improve their overall health and well-being.

A jejunoileal bypass is a surgical procedure that was once used to treat morbid obesity, but it is now rarely performed due to the high risk of serious complications. This procedure involves dividing the small intestine into two parts: the proximal jejunum and the distal ileum. The proximal jejunum is then connected to the colon, bypassing a significant portion of the small intestine where nutrient absorption occurs.

The goal of this surgery was to reduce the amount of food and nutrients that could be absorbed, leading to weight loss. However, it was found that patients who underwent jejunoileal bypass were at risk for developing severe malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies, bone disease, kidney stones, and liver problems. Additionally, many patients experienced unpleasant side effects such as diarrhea, bloating, and foul-smelling stools. Due to these significant risks and limited benefits, jejunoileal bypass has largely been replaced by other weight loss surgeries such as gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy.

Hyperoxaluria is a medical condition characterized by an excessive excretion of oxalate in the urine. Oxalate is a naturally occurring substance found in some foods and can also be produced by the body. When oxalate combines with calcium in the urine, it can form kidney stones or calcium oxalate deposits in the kidneys and other tissues, leading to kidney damage or systemic oxalosis. There are three types of hyperoxaluria: primary, secondary, and enteric. Primary hyperoxaluria is caused by genetic defects that affect the body's ability to regulate oxalate production, while secondary hyperoxaluria results from increased dietary intake or absorption of oxalate, or from other medical conditions. Enteric hyperoxaluria occurs in individuals with malabsorption syndromes, such as inflammatory bowel disease or after gastric bypass surgery, where excessive amounts of oxalate are absorbed from the gut into the bloodstream and excreted in the urine.

Postoperative complications refer to any unfavorable condition or event that occurs during the recovery period after a surgical procedure. These complications can vary in severity and may include, but are not limited to:

1. Infection: This can occur at the site of the incision or inside the body, such as pneumonia or urinary tract infection.
2. Bleeding: Excessive bleeding (hemorrhage) can lead to a drop in blood pressure and may require further surgical intervention.
3. Blood clots: These can form in the deep veins of the legs (deep vein thrombosis) and can potentially travel to the lungs (pulmonary embolism).
4. Wound dehiscence: This is when the surgical wound opens up, which can lead to infection and further complications.
5. Pulmonary issues: These include atelectasis (collapsed lung), pneumonia, or respiratory failure.
6. Cardiovascular problems: These include abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias), heart attack, or stroke.
7. Renal failure: This can occur due to various reasons such as dehydration, blood loss, or the use of certain medications.
8. Pain management issues: Inadequate pain control can lead to increased stress, anxiety, and decreased mobility.
9. Nausea and vomiting: These can be caused by anesthesia, opioid pain medication, or other factors.
10. Delirium: This is a state of confusion and disorientation that can occur in the elderly or those with certain medical conditions.

Prompt identification and management of these complications are crucial to ensure the best possible outcome for the patient.

Avitaminosis is a medical condition that results from a deficiency of vitamins in the body. It occurs when an individual fails to consume sufficient amounts of essential vitamins, either due to poor nutrition, malabsorption, or increased requirements. The symptoms and severity of avitaminosis depend on the specific vitamin that is lacking and can range from mild to life-threatening.

For example:

* Avitaminosis A (deficiency of vitamin A) may lead to night blindness, dry skin, and impaired immunity.
* Avitaminosis B1 (deficiency of thiamine) can cause beriberi, a condition characterized by muscle weakness, peripheral neuropathy, and heart failure.
* Avitaminosis C (deficiency of ascorbic acid) may result in scurvy, which is marked by fatigue, swollen gums, joint pain, and anemia.
* Avitaminosis D (deficiency of calciferol) can lead to rickets in children or osteomalacia in adults, both of which are characterized by weakened bones and skeletal deformities.

To prevent avitaminosis, it is essential to maintain a balanced diet that includes all the necessary vitamins and minerals. In some cases, supplementation may be required to meet daily requirements, especially in individuals with medical conditions that affect nutrient absorption or increased needs. Always consult a healthcare professional before starting any supplement regimen.

The preoperative period is the time period before a surgical procedure during which various preparations are made to ensure the best possible outcome for the surgery. This includes evaluating the patient's overall health status, identifying and managing any underlying medical conditions that could increase the risk of complications, obtaining informed consent from the patient, and providing preoperative instructions regarding medications, food and drink intake, and other aspects of preparation for the surgery.

The specific activities that occur during the preoperative period may vary depending on the type and complexity of the surgical procedure, as well as the individual needs and medical history of the patient. However, some common elements of the preoperative period include:

* A thorough medical history and physical examination to assess the patient's overall health status and identify any potential risk factors for complications
* Diagnostic tests such as blood tests, imaging studies, or electrocardiograms (ECGs) to provide additional information about the patient's health status
* Consultation with anesthesia providers to determine the appropriate type and dosage of anesthesia for the procedure
* Preoperative teaching to help the patient understand what to expect before, during, and after the surgery
* Management of any underlying medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or lung disease to reduce the risk of complications
* Administration of medications such as antibiotics or anti-coagulants to prevent infection or bleeding
* Fasting instructions to ensure that the stomach is empty during the surgery and reduce the risk of aspiration (inhalation of stomach contents into the lungs)

Overall, the preoperative period is a critical time for ensuring the safety and success of surgical procedures. By taking a thorough and systematic approach to preparing patients for surgery, healthcare providers can help to minimize the risks of complications and ensure the best possible outcomes for their patients.

Roux-en-Y anastomosis is a type of surgical connection between two parts of the gastrointestinal tract, typically performed during gastric bypass surgery for weight loss. In this procedure, a small pouch is created from the upper stomach, and the remaining portion of the stomach is bypassed. The Roux limb, a segment of the small intestine, is then connected to both the pouch and the bypassed stomach, creating two separate channels for food and digestive juices to mix. This surgical technique helps to reduce the amount of food that can be consumed and absorbed, leading to weight loss.

Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that involves the insertion of a laparoscope, which is a thin tube with a light and camera attached to it, through small incisions in the abdomen. This allows the surgeon to view the internal organs without making large incisions. It's commonly used to diagnose and treat various conditions such as endometriosis, ovarian cysts, infertility, and appendicitis. The advantages of laparoscopy over traditional open surgery include smaller incisions, less pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery times.

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure used to assess whether a person has a healthy weight for their height. It's calculated by dividing a person's weight in kilograms by the square of their height in meters. Here is the medical definition:

Body Mass Index (BMI) = weight(kg) / [height(m)]^2

According to the World Health Organization, BMI categories are defined as follows:

* Less than 18.5: Underweight
* 18.5-24.9: Normal or healthy weight
* 25.0-29.9: Overweight
* 30.0 and above: Obese

It is important to note that while BMI can be a useful tool for identifying weight issues in populations, it does have limitations when applied to individuals. For example, it may not accurately reflect body fat distribution or muscle mass, which can affect health risks associated with excess weight. Therefore, BMI should be used as one of several factors when evaluating an individual's health status and risk for chronic diseases.

Treatment outcome is a term used to describe the result or effect of medical treatment on a patient's health status. It can be measured in various ways, such as through symptoms improvement, disease remission, reduced disability, improved quality of life, or survival rates. The treatment outcome helps healthcare providers evaluate the effectiveness of a particular treatment plan and make informed decisions about future care. It is also used in clinical research to compare the efficacy of different treatments and improve patient care.

The postoperative period is the time following a surgical procedure during which the patient's response to the surgery and anesthesia is monitored, and any complications or adverse effects are managed. This period can vary in length depending on the type of surgery and the individual patient's needs, but it typically includes the immediate recovery phase in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) or recovery room, as well as any additional time spent in the hospital for monitoring and management of pain, wound healing, and other aspects of postoperative care.

The goals of postoperative care are to ensure the patient's safety and comfort, promote optimal healing and rehabilitation, and minimize the risk of complications such as infection, bleeding, or other postoperative issues. The specific interventions and treatments provided during this period will depend on a variety of factors, including the type and extent of surgery performed, the patient's overall health and medical history, and any individualized care plans developed in consultation with the patient and their healthcare team.

Bariatrics is a branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity and its related disorders. It involves a multidisciplinary approach, including medical nutrition therapy, physical activity, behavioral modification, pharmacotherapy, and surgical interventions. The goal of bariatric care is to improve overall health, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and enhance the quality of life for individuals who are overweight or obese.

A Gastrectomy is a surgical procedure involving the removal of all or part of the stomach. This procedure can be total (complete resection of the stomach), partial (removal of a portion of the stomach), or sleeve (removal of a portion of the stomach to create a narrow sleeve-shaped pouch).

Gastrectomies are typically performed to treat conditions such as gastric cancer, benign tumors, severe peptic ulcers, and in some cases, for weight loss in individuals with morbid obesity. The type of gastrectomy performed depends on the patient's medical condition and the extent of the disease.

Following a gastrectomy, patients may require adjustments to their diet and lifestyle, as well as potential supplementation of vitamins and minerals that would normally be absorbed in the stomach. In some cases, further reconstructive surgery might be necessary to reestablish gastrointestinal continuity.

Informed consent is the process by which a person voluntarily confirms their understanding and agreement to a proposed medical intervention, treatment, or experiment. In the case of minors (individuals who have not yet reached the legal age of majority), informed consent can be more complex.

Informed consent by minors refers to the concept that, under certain circumstances, minors may have the capacity to provide informed consent for their own medical treatment. This is based on the principle that individuals have the right to make decisions about their own health and bodies, even if they are not yet legally adults.

The specifics of informed consent by minors can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the individual's circumstances. In some cases, a minor may be able to provide informed consent if they are deemed mature enough to understand the nature and consequences of the proposed medical intervention. This is often referred to as "emancipated minor" status.

In other cases, a minor may not have the capacity to provide informed consent, and permission must be sought from a parent or guardian. However, in emergency situations where seeking permission from a parent or guardian is not possible or would cause undue delay, healthcare providers may provide necessary medical treatment without prior consent.

Overall, informed consent by minors involves a careful assessment of the individual's capacity to understand and make decisions about their own medical care, taking into account their age, development, maturity, and other relevant factors.

Postoperative care refers to the comprehensive medical treatment and nursing attention provided to a patient following a surgical procedure. The goal of postoperative care is to facilitate the patient's recovery, prevent complications, manage pain, ensure proper healing of the incision site, and maintain overall health and well-being until the patient can resume their normal activities.

This type of care includes monitoring vital signs, managing pain through medication or other techniques, ensuring adequate hydration and nutrition, helping the patient with breathing exercises to prevent lung complications, encouraging mobility to prevent blood clots, monitoring for signs of infection or other complications, administering prescribed medications, providing wound care, and educating the patient about postoperative care instructions.

The duration of postoperative care can vary depending on the type and complexity of the surgical procedure, as well as the individual patient's needs and overall health status. It may be provided in a hospital setting, an outpatient surgery center, or in the patient's home, depending on the level of care required.

A gastric fistula is an abnormal connection or passage between the stomach and another organ or the skin surface. This condition can occur as a result of complications from surgery, injury, infection, or certain diseases such as cancer. Symptoms may include persistent drainage from the site of the fistula, pain, malnutrition, and infection. Treatment typically involves surgical repair of the fistula and management of any underlying conditions.

Tooth wear is the progressive loss of tooth structure that can occur as a result of various factors. According to the medical definition, it refers to the wearing down, rubbing away, or grinding off of the hard tissues of the teeth (enamel and dentin) due to mechanical forces or chemical processes.

There are three primary types of tooth wear:

1. Abrasion: This is the loss of tooth structure caused by friction from external sources, such as incorrect brushing techniques, bite appliances, or habits like nail-biting and pipe smoking.
2. Attrition: This type of tooth wear results from the natural wearing down of teeth due to occlusal forces during biting, chewing, and grinding. However, excessive attrition can occur due to bruxism (teeth grinding) or clenching.
3. Erosion: Chemical processes, such as acid attacks from dietary sources (e.g., citrus fruits, sodas, and sports drinks) or gastric reflux, cause the loss of tooth structure in this type of tooth wear. The enamel dissolves when exposed to low pH levels, leaving the dentin underneath vulnerable to further damage.

Professional dental examination and treatment may be necessary to address significant tooth wear and prevent further progression, which can lead to sensitivity, pain, and functional or aesthetic issues.

Prospective studies, also known as longitudinal studies, are a type of cohort study in which data is collected forward in time, following a group of individuals who share a common characteristic or exposure over a period of time. The researchers clearly define the study population and exposure of interest at the beginning of the study and follow up with the participants to determine the outcomes that develop over time. This type of study design allows for the investigation of causal relationships between exposures and outcomes, as well as the identification of risk factors and the estimation of disease incidence rates. Prospective studies are particularly useful in epidemiology and medical research when studying diseases with long latency periods or rare outcomes.

Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 is a metabolic disorder characterized by high blood glucose (or sugar) levels resulting from the body's inability to produce sufficient amounts of insulin or effectively use the insulin it produces. This form of diabetes usually develops gradually over several years and is often associated with older age, obesity, physical inactivity, family history of diabetes, and certain ethnicities.

In Type 2 diabetes, the body's cells become resistant to insulin, meaning they don't respond properly to the hormone. As a result, the pancreas produces more insulin to help glucose enter the cells. Over time, the pancreas can't keep up with the increased demand, leading to high blood glucose levels and diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is managed through lifestyle modifications such as weight loss, regular exercise, and a healthy diet. Medications, including insulin therapy, may also be necessary to control blood glucose levels and prevent long-term complications associated with the disease, such as heart disease, nerve damage, kidney damage, and vision loss.

Preoperative care refers to the series of procedures, interventions, and preparations that are conducted before a surgical operation. The primary goal of preoperative care is to ensure the patient's well-being, optimize their physical condition, reduce potential risks, and prepare them mentally and emotionally for the upcoming surgery.

Preoperative care typically includes:

1. Preoperative assessment: A thorough evaluation of the patient's overall health status, including medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests, and diagnostic imaging, to identify any potential risk factors or comorbidities that may impact the surgical procedure and postoperative recovery.
2. Informed consent: The process of ensuring the patient understands the nature of the surgery, its purpose, associated risks, benefits, and alternative treatment options. The patient signs a consent form indicating they have been informed and voluntarily agree to undergo the surgery.
3. Preoperative instructions: Guidelines provided to the patient regarding their diet, medication use, and other activities in the days leading up to the surgery. These instructions may include fasting guidelines, discontinuing certain medications, or arranging for transportation after the procedure.
4. Anesthesia consultation: A meeting with the anesthesiologist to discuss the type of anesthesia that will be used during the surgery and address any concerns related to anesthesia risks, side effects, or postoperative pain management.
5. Preparation of the surgical site: Cleaning and shaving the area where the incision will be made, as well as administering appropriate antimicrobial agents to minimize the risk of infection.
6. Medical optimization: Addressing any underlying medical conditions or correcting abnormalities that may negatively impact the surgical outcome. This may involve adjusting medications, treating infections, or managing chronic diseases such as diabetes.
7. Emotional and psychological support: Providing counseling, reassurance, and education to help alleviate anxiety, fear, or emotional distress related to the surgery.
8. Preoperative holding area: The patient is transferred to a designated area near the operating room where they are prepared for surgery by changing into a gown, having intravenous (IV) lines inserted, and receiving monitoring equipment.

By following these preoperative care guidelines, healthcare professionals aim to ensure that patients undergo safe and successful surgical procedures with optimal outcomes.

Malabsorption syndromes refer to a group of disorders in which the small intestine is unable to properly absorb nutrients from food, leading to various gastrointestinal and systemic symptoms. This can result from a variety of underlying conditions, including:

1. Mucosal damage: Conditions such as celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), or bacterial overgrowth that cause damage to the lining of the small intestine, impairing nutrient absorption.
2. Pancreatic insufficiency: A lack of digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas can lead to poor breakdown and absorption of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Examples include chronic pancreatitis or cystic fibrosis.
3. Bile acid deficiency: Insufficient bile acids, which are necessary for fat emulsification and absorption, can result in steatorrhea (fatty stools) and malabsorption. This may occur due to liver dysfunction, gallbladder removal, or ileal resection.
4. Motility disorders: Abnormalities in small intestine motility can affect nutrient absorption, as seen in conditions like gastroparesis, intestinal pseudo-obstruction, or scleroderma.
5. Structural abnormalities: Congenital or acquired structural defects of the small intestine, such as short bowel syndrome, may lead to malabsorption.
6. Infections: Certain bacterial, viral, or parasitic infections can cause transient malabsorption by damaging the intestinal mucosa or altering gut flora.

Symptoms of malabsorption syndromes may include diarrhea, steatorrhea, bloating, abdominal cramps, weight loss, and nutrient deficiencies. Diagnosis typically involves a combination of clinical evaluation, laboratory tests, radiologic imaging, and sometimes endoscopic procedures to identify the underlying cause. Treatment is focused on addressing the specific etiology and providing supportive care to manage symptoms and prevent complications.

Follow-up studies are a type of longitudinal research that involve repeated observations or measurements of the same variables over a period of time, in order to understand their long-term effects or outcomes. In medical context, follow-up studies are often used to evaluate the safety and efficacy of medical treatments, interventions, or procedures.

In a typical follow-up study, a group of individuals (called a cohort) who have received a particular treatment or intervention are identified and then followed over time through periodic assessments or data collection. The data collected may include information on clinical outcomes, adverse events, changes in symptoms or functional status, and other relevant measures.

The results of follow-up studies can provide important insights into the long-term benefits and risks of medical interventions, as well as help to identify factors that may influence treatment effectiveness or patient outcomes. However, it is important to note that follow-up studies can be subject to various biases and limitations, such as loss to follow-up, recall bias, and changes in clinical practice over time, which must be carefully considered when interpreting the results.

Anti-obesity agents are medications that are used to treat obesity and overweight. They work by reducing appetite, increasing feelings of fullness, decreasing fat absorption, or increasing metabolism. Some examples of anti-obesity agents include orlistat, lorcaserin, phentermine, and topiramate. These medications are typically used in conjunction with diet and exercise to help people lose weight and maintain a healthy body weight. It's important to note that these medications can have side effects and should be used under the close supervision of a healthcare provider.

Retrospective studies, also known as retrospective research or looking back studies, are a type of observational study that examines data from the past to draw conclusions about possible causal relationships between risk factors and outcomes. In these studies, researchers analyze existing records, medical charts, or previously collected data to test a hypothesis or answer a specific research question.

Retrospective studies can be useful for generating hypotheses and identifying trends, but they have limitations compared to prospective studies, which follow participants forward in time from exposure to outcome. Retrospective studies are subject to biases such as recall bias, selection bias, and information bias, which can affect the validity of the results. Therefore, retrospective studies should be interpreted with caution and used primarily to generate hypotheses for further testing in prospective studies.

The perioperative period is a term used to describe the time frame surrounding a surgical procedure, encompassing the preoperative (before surgery), intraoperative (during surgery), and postoperative (after surgery) phases. This period begins with the initial decision for surgery, continues through the surgical intervention itself, and extends until the patient has fully recovered from the effects of the surgery and anesthesia. The perioperative period involves a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, involving surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and other healthcare professionals working together to optimize patient outcomes, minimize complications, and ensure a smooth transition back to normal daily activities.

Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) is a hormone that is secreted by the intestines in response to food intake. It plays a crucial role in regulating blood sugar levels through several mechanisms, including stimulation of insulin secretion from the pancreas, inhibition of glucagon release, slowing gastric emptying, and promoting satiety. GLP-1 is an important target for the treatment of type 2 diabetes due to its insulin-secretory and glucose-lowering effects. In addition, GLP-1 receptor agonists are used in the management of obesity due to their ability to promote weight loss by reducing appetite and increasing feelings of fullness.

Patient selection, in the context of medical treatment or clinical research, refers to the process of identifying and choosing appropriate individuals who are most likely to benefit from a particular medical intervention or who meet specific criteria to participate in a study. This decision is based on various factors such as the patient's diagnosis, stage of disease, overall health status, potential risks, and expected benefits. The goal of patient selection is to ensure that the selected individuals will receive the most effective and safe care possible while also contributing to meaningful research outcomes.

Peptide YY (PYY) is a small peptide hormone consisting of 36 amino acids, that is released by the L cells in the intestinal epithelium in response to feeding. It is a member of the neuropeptide Y (NPY) family and plays a crucial role in regulating appetite and energy balance.

After eating, PYY is released into the circulation and acts on specific receptors in the hypothalamus to inhibit food intake. This anorexigenic effect of PYY is mediated by its ability to decrease gastric emptying, reduce intestinal motility, and increase satiety.

PYY has also been shown to have effects on glucose homeostasis, insulin secretion, and inflammation, making it a potential therapeutic target for the treatment of obesity, diabetes, and other metabolic disorders.

Gastrointestinal (GI) hormones are a group of hormones that are secreted by cells in the gastrointestinal tract in response to food intake and digestion. They play crucial roles in regulating various physiological processes, including appetite regulation, gastric acid secretion, motility of the gastrointestinal tract, insulin secretion, and pancreatic enzyme release.

Examples of GI hormones include:

* Gastrin: Secreted by G cells in the stomach, gastrin stimulates the release of hydrochloric acid from parietal cells in the stomach lining.
* Ghrelin: Produced by the stomach, ghrelin is often referred to as the "hunger hormone" because it stimulates appetite and food intake.
* Cholecystokinin (CCK): Secreted by I cells in the small intestine, CCK promotes digestion by stimulating the release of pancreatic enzymes and bile from the liver. It also inhibits gastric emptying and reduces appetite.
* Gastric inhibitory peptide (GIP): Produced by K cells in the small intestine, GIP promotes insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon release.
* Secretin: Released by S cells in the small intestine, secretin stimulates the pancreas to produce bicarbonate-rich fluid that neutralizes stomach acid in the duodenum.
* Motilin: Secreted by MO cells in the small intestine, motilin promotes gastrointestinal motility and regulates the migrating motor complex (MMC), which is responsible for cleaning out the small intestine between meals.

These hormones work together to regulate digestion and maintain homeostasis in the body. Dysregulation of GI hormones can contribute to various gastrointestinal disorders, such as gastroparesis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and diabetes.

A gastric balloon is a medical device that is temporarily inserted into the stomach to help with weight loss. It is typically used for individuals who are moderately overweight and have not been able to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. The procedure involves placing a deflated balloon into the stomach through the mouth, then filling it with saline solution once it's in place. This reduces the amount of space available in the stomach for food, leading to a feeling of fullness and reduced appetite. After several months, the balloon is removed through an endoscopic procedure. It's important to note that gastric balloons are not a permanent solution to obesity and should be used as part of a comprehensive weight loss plan that includes diet, exercise, and behavior modification.

Medical Definition:

"Risk factors" are any attribute, characteristic or exposure of an individual that increases the likelihood of developing a disease or injury. They can be divided into modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors. Modifiable risk factors are those that can be changed through lifestyle choices or medical treatment, while non-modifiable risk factors are inherent traits such as age, gender, or genetic predisposition. Examples of modifiable risk factors include smoking, alcohol consumption, physical inactivity, and unhealthy diet, while non-modifiable risk factors include age, sex, and family history. It is important to note that having a risk factor does not guarantee that a person will develop the disease, but rather indicates an increased susceptibility.

Comorbidity is the presence of one or more additional health conditions or diseases alongside a primary illness or condition. These co-occurring health issues can have an impact on the treatment plan, prognosis, and overall healthcare management of an individual. Comorbidities often interact with each other and the primary condition, leading to more complex clinical situations and increased healthcare needs. It is essential for healthcare professionals to consider and address comorbidities to provide comprehensive care and improve patient outcomes.

A reoperation is a surgical procedure that is performed again on a patient who has already undergone a previous operation for the same or related condition. Reoperations may be required due to various reasons, such as inadequate initial treatment, disease recurrence, infection, or complications from the first surgery. The nature and complexity of a reoperation can vary widely depending on the specific circumstances, but it often carries higher risks and potential complications compared to the original operation.

In medical terms, secondary care refers to the level of health care services provided by medical specialists and other health professionals who do not have immediate access to patients. It is usually the next level of care following primary care, which is often provided by general practitioners or family doctors. Secondary care typically includes more complex and specialized treatments, such as those provided in hospitals or specialty clinics, and may involve collaboration between multiple healthcare providers.

Examples of secondary care services include consultations with medical specialists, diagnostic tests, surgeries, and other procedures that require specialized equipment or expertise. These services are usually accessed through referral from a primary care provider, who will assess the patient's needs and determine whether they require more specialized care.

Overall, secondary care is an essential component of healthcare systems around the world, providing patients with access to the specialized care they need to manage complex medical conditions and maintain their health and well-being.
