Management and outcome of patients undergoing surgery after acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage. Steering Group for the National Audit of Acute Upper Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage. (1/1177)

Most patients with acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage are managed conservatively or with endoscopic intervention but some ultimately require surgery to arrest the haemorrhage. We have conducted a population-based multicentre prospective observational study of management and outcomes. This paper concerns the subgroup of 307 patients who had an operation because of continued or recurrent haemorrhage or high risk of further bleeding. The principal diagnostic group was those with peptic ulcer. Of 2071 patients with peptic ulcer presenting with acute haemorrhage, 251 (12%) had an operative intervention with a mortality of 24%. In the non-operative group mortality was 10%. The operative intervention rate increased with risk score, ranging from 0% in the lowest risk categories to 38% in the highest. Much of the discrepancy between operative and non-operative mortality was explainable by case mix; however, for high-risk cases mortality was significantly higher in the operated group. In 78% of patients who underwent an operation for bleeding peptic ulcer there had been no previous attempt at endoscopic haemostasis. For patients admitted to surgical units, the operative intervention rate was about four times higher than for those admitted under medical teams. In patients with acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage operative intervention is infrequent and largely confined to the highest-risk patients. The continuing high mortality in surgically treated patients is therefore to be expected. The reasons for the low use of endoscopic treatment before surgery are not revealed by this study, but wider use of such treatments might further reduce the operative intervention rate. Physicians and surgeons have not yet reached consensus on who needs surgery and when.  (+info)

Extended lymph-node dissection for gastric cancer. (2/1177)

BACKGROUND: Curative resection is the treatment of choice for gastric cancer, but it is unclear whether this operation should include an extended (D2) lymph-node dissection, as recommended by the Japanese medical community, or a limited (D1) dissection. We conducted a randomized trial in 80 Dutch hospitals in which we compared D1 with D2 lymph-node dissection for gastric cancer in terms of morbidity, postoperative mortality, long-term survival, and cumulative risk of relapse after surgery. METHODS: Between August 1989 and July 1993, a total of 996 patients entered the study. Of these patients, 711 (380 in the D1 group and 331 in the D2 group) underwent the randomly assigned treatment with curative intent, and 285 received palliative treatment. The procedures for quality control included instruction and supervision in the operating room and monitoring of the pathological results. RESULTS: Patients in the D2 group had a significantly higher rate of complications than did those in the D1 group (43 percent vs. 25 percent, P<0.001), more postoperative deaths (10 percent vs. 4 percent, P= 0.004), and longer hospital stays (median, 16 vs. 14 days; P<0.001). Five-year survival rates were similar in the two groups: 45 percent for the D1 group and 47 percent for the D2 group (95 percent confidence interval for the difference, -9.6 percent to +5.6 percent). The patients who had R0 resections (i.e., who had no microscopical evidence of remaining disease), excluding those who died postoperatively, had cumulative risks of relapse at five years of 43 percent with D1 dissection and 37 percent with D2 dissection (95 percent confidence interval for the difference, -2.4 percent to +14.4 percent). CONCLUSIONS: Our results in Dutch patients do not support the routine use of D2 lymph-node dissection in patients with gastric cancer.  (+info)

Number and anatomical extent of lymph node metastases in gastric cancer: analysis using intra-lymph node injection of activated carbon particles (CH40). (3/1177)

BACKGROUND: The long-term survival of 200 patients with gastric cancer who underwent radical gastrectomy was analyzed with respect to the number and anatomical extent of lymph node metastasis. All of the patients received intra-lymph node injection of fine activated carbon particle solution (CH40) during surgery. METHODS: The average number of resected lymph nodes increased in line with the anatomical level of lymph node dissection; 32.5 per patient in D1, 42.3 in D2, 3 and 66.3 in D4. The percentage of blackened lymph nodes without metastasis (42.4%) was slightly higher than that of lymph nodes containing metastasis (37.2%), but the difference was not statistically significant. Of the 200 patients, 61 (30.5%) had microscopic evidence of metastatic lymph node involvement. Twenty-two patients had between one and three metastatic lymph nodes, 19 had between four and nine and 20 patients had more than nine. The 5-year survival rate was 93.1% in patients without lymph node metastasis, 71.9% in patients with 1-8 metastatic nodes, 36.1% in patients with 4-9 nodes and 19.2% in patients with > 9 nodes. RESULTS: The 5-year survival rate according to the anatomical extent of metastatic lymph nodes was 93.1% in n0, 63.1% in n1, 37.9% in n2, 27.8% in n3 and 0% in n4. The number of metastatic lymph nodes and also their anatomical extent were identified as independent prognostic factors for survival by multivariate analysis. CONCLUSION: The number and anatomical extent of metastatic lymph nodes have similar impacts on prognosis in gastric cancer.  (+info)

Clinical symptoms, hormone profiles, treatment, and prognosis in patients with gastric carcinoids. (4/1177)

BACKGROUND: Type 1 gastric carcinoids are associated with hypergastrinaemia and chronic atrophic gastritis, type 2 occur in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 combined with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, and type 3 lack any relation to hypergastrinaemia. Type 1 tumours are usually benign whereas type 3 are highly malignant. AIMS: To identify possible tumour markers in patients with gastric carcinoids. PATIENTS/METHOD: Nine patients with type 1, one with type 2, and five with type 3 were evaluated with regard to symptoms, hormone profile, and prognosis. RESULTS: Plasma chromogranin A was increased in all patients but was higher (p < 0.01) in those with type 3 than those with type 1 carcinoids. All patients with type 3 carcinoids died from metastatic disease, but none of the type 1 patients died as a result of their tumours. One type 1 patient with a solitary liver metastasis received interferon alpha and octreotide treatment. Nine months later, the metastasis was no longer detectable. She is still alive eight years after diagnosis, without recurrent disease. This represents the only reported case of foregut carcinoid with an unresectable liver metastasis that seems to be have been cured by biotherapy. CONCLUSIONS: Plasma chromogranin A appears to be a valuable tumour marker for all types of gastric carcinoid. Combination therapy with interferon alpha and octreotide may be beneficial in patients with metastasising type 1 gastric carcinoids.  (+info)

Total gastrectomy with simultaneous pancreaticosplenectomy or splenectomy in patients with advanced gastric carcinoma. (5/1177)

A splenectomy or distal pancreaticosplenectomy is often performed simultaneously with total gastrectomy in the treatment of gastric carcinoma to facilitate dissection of the lymph nodes around the splenic artery and splenic hilus. However, the negative impact of splenectomy and pancreaticosplenectomy has also been reported. A retrospective analysis was performed to evaluate the outcomes of distal pancreaticosplenectomy and total gastrectomy, splenectomy and total gastrectomy, and gastrectomy alone in the patients with advanced gastric carcinoma without distant metastasis. Prognostic factors were examined. No significant differences existed in 5-year survival in the patients who underwent gastrectomy with splenectomy, gastrectomy with distal pancreaticosplenectomy, or gastrectomy alone. Neither splenectomy, nor distal pancreaticosplenectomy were prognostic factors. However, distal pancreaticosplenectomy was an independent predictor of pancreatic fistula. In conclusion, the addition of distal pancreaticosplenectomy or splenectomy to total gastrectomy for gastric cancer increases the risk of severe complications, but does not improve survival.  (+info)

Comparison of the effects of sevoflurane and isoflurane on arterial oxygenation during one lung ventilation. (6/1177)

We have compared the effects of sevoflurane and isoflurane on arterial oxygenation, heart rate and mean arterial pressure during one lung anaesthesia in a prospective, crossover study. We studied 28 patients undergoing oesophagogastrectomy, allocated alternatively to one of two groups. Patients in group I/S (n = 14) received 1 MAC (1.1%) of isoflurane in oxygen from induction until the end of 30 min of open chest one lung ventilation (OLV) in the lateral position. This was followed by 1 MAC (2.1%) of sevoflurane in oxygen for the next 30 min of OLV. Patients in group S/I (n = 14) received the two anaesthetic agents in the reverse order. We found no significant difference in arterial oxygenation, heart rate or mean arterial pressure between the two potent inhalation agents. In the subgroup of patients with pulmonary artery catheters (n = 12), we found a significant increase (P < 0.05) in derived shunt during sevoflurane anaesthesia. There was no significant difference in mixed venous saturation and cardiac output. We conclude that during one lung ventilation, the choice between sevoflurane and isoflurane did not significantly influence arterial oxygenation.  (+info)

Delay of gastric emptying by duodenal intubation: sensitive measurement of gastric emptying by the paracetamol absorption test. (7/1177)

AIMS: To examine the influence of duodenal intubation on gastric emptying measured by the paracetamol absorption test using a new algorithm developed to estimate emptying parameters, and to determine the sensitivity of this test. METHODS: A caloric liquid meal with paracetamol as marker of emptying was administered orally to eight healthy volunteers during phase I and phase II of the migrating motor complex (MMC) and without intubation on 3 separate days, and to 10 patients with partial gastrectomy. RESULTS: Healthy subjects: With duodenal tube, time until 25% of the meal had emptied (t25%) was 24+/-7 (phase I, P<0.02) and 21+/-6 min (phase II, P<0.02) compared with 14+/-4 min for meal intake without intubation. Time until 50% of the meal had emptied (t50%) was 45+/-8 (phase I, P<0.001) and 35+/-8 min (phase II, P<0.02) compared with 26+/-9 min for meal intake without intubation. Intraduodenal instillation of 10-20 mL of the liquid meal was reliably detected. PATIENTS: In 9 out of 10 patients with partial gastrectomy t25% was below the lower limit of the range for healthy controls, and t25% detected accelerated emptying with a higher degree of sensitivity than the commonly applied pharmacokinetic parameters Cmax and Tmax. CONCLUSIONS: A duodenal tube delays gastric emptying of a caloric liquid meal. The paracetamol absorption test emerges as a sensitive method suitable for detecting both delayed and accelerated gastric emptying of caloric liquid meals.  (+info)

Urinary gonadotropin peptide as acute phase reactant: transient elevation after operation for digestive diseases. (8/1177)

OBJECTIVE: In order to characterize urinary gonadotropin peptide (UGP) as an acute phase reactant, we focused on the UGP levels after surgical operation. DESIGN: Fifty cases of gastrointestinal cancer, 4 cases of cancers of other organs and 13 cases of benign digestive diseases were enrolled into this study. METHODS: UGP levels were measured using an enzyme immunoassay before and after surgery. RESULTS: Fifty-four (80.6%) of the 67 cases studied showed transient elevations of UGP. Both urinary interleukin (IL)-6 and LH levels were also increased transiently in 49 cases (73.1%). All of these three factors were increased in 38 cases (56.7%), and in 32 (84.2%) of these 38 cases, the order of peak appearance was as follows: IL-6, LH, and UGP. The UGP levels in the group of total gastrectomy were significantly higher than those in the group of partial gastrectomy. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that UGP shows a transient peak after surgery, correlating with levels of cytokines such as IL-6. UGP may be an acute phase reactant, and its levels are correlated with the grade of surgical stress.  (+info)

Surgery is the only potentially curative method for patients with gastric cancer. The ideal surgical resection not only achieves the curative intent but also decreases postoperative morbidity and mortality. The long-term prognosis and postoperative quality of life should both be of great concern [12, 16, 17]. Considering that distal subtotal gastrectomy is associated with a better quality of life and lower morbidity and mortality, many surgeons recommend distal subtotal gastrectomy as the optimal procedure for lower-third gastric cancer based on previous reports [18-20]. However, at the moment, there is no consensus regarding the best extent of gastrectomy for middle-third gastric cancer. The only prospective randomized trial, performed in Italy, compared surgical morbidity and long-term prognosis between distal subtotal gastrectomy and total gastrectomy for patients with gastric cancer. However, only approximately 20% of patients in that study had middle-third gastric cancer [10, 21]. The ...

As the surgical view is amplified, laparoscopic surgery can be benefited to preserve the integrity of the dissected lymph nodes and lymph ducts, and remove any associated lymphatic and connective tissues en bloc laparoscopic surgery has been accepted as a novel minimally invasive surgical option for EGC patients. However, in LADG, the incision is relatively small, especially in patients with obesity, it was difficult to expose for the successful completion of extracorporeal gastroenteric anastomosis.18 TLDG was introduced in the hope of overcoming the difficulty of reconstruction, especially on obese. In totally laparoscopic surgery, anastomosis is accomplished in the abdomen. Kim et al considered obesity was the potential factor to increase risk on the postoperative complications in LADG, because of small incision and poor exposure for anastomosis .Totally laparoscopic distal gastrectomy can be an effective way of performing laparoscopic gastrectomy in obese patients (BMI ≥ 30).19 We also ...
BACKGROUND:. Aging and obesity are two conditions associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Our aim was to analyze whether an advanced age affects the beneficial effects of sleeve gastrectomy on weight loss and blood pressure in an experimental model of diet-induced obesity (DIO).. METHODS:. Young (6-month-old) and old (18-month-old) male Wistar DIO rats (n = 101) were subjected to surgical (sham operation and sleeve gastrectomy) or dietary interventions (pair-fed to the amount of food eaten by sleeve gastrectomized animals). Systolic (SBP), diastolic (DBP), and mean (MBP) blood pressure values and heart rate (HR) were recorded in conscious, resting animals by non-invasive tail-cuff plethysmography before and 4 weeks after surgical or dietary interventions.. RESULTS:. Aging was associated with higher (P , 0.05) body weight and subcutaneous and perirenal fat mass as well as mild cardiac hypertrophy. Sleeve gastrectomy induced a reduction in body weight, whole-body adiposity, and ...
Introduction Obesity is epidemic in the United States and worldwide. The adverse effects of obesity on health and longevity were formally recognized and established by the National Institutes of Health in 1985.[1] Metabolic and bariatric surgery have been shown to be safe, and remain the most effective and durable treatments for clinically severe obesity with a documented reduction in all-cause mortality and long-term survival benefit.[2] Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) was the most common bariatric procedure performed in the United States from 2004 to 2012, after which sleeve gastrectomy (SG) became the most common procedure.[3] Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy was originally designed as the first step procedure in a duodenal switch or a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure, but has gained popularity as a stand-alone procedure given its similar results in weight loss and resolution in comorbid conditions.[4] As worldwide obesity rates and, in turn bariatric procedures increase, ...

Obesity is a growing epidemic around the world, and obese patients are generally regarded as high risk for surgery compared with normal weight patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of obesity on the surgical outcomes of laparoscopic gastrectomy (LG) for gastric cancer. We reviewed data for all patients undergoing LG for gastric cancer at our institute between October 2004 and December 2016. Patients were divided into non-obese and obese groups and the perioperative outcomes were compared. Furthermore, a subgroup analysis was conducted to evaluate which of the two commonly used methods of LG, laparoscopic-assisted gastrectomy (LAG) and totally laparoscopic gastrectomy (TLG), is more suitable for obese patients. A total of 1691 patients, 1255 non-obese and 436 obese or overweight patients, underwent LG during the study period.

You know youll absorb those calories, too, right? If you couldnt absorb the protein, you couldnt absorb the calories, either.. Drinking carbonated beverages will make your pouch explode (or at least stretch it).. It wont. I promise. It might give you painful gas but it cannot stretch your pouch (or your sleeve, if you had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy or duodenal switch).. Regardless of which weight loss surgery you had, you have a small opening at the top of your pouch or sleeve where food and liquids enter. If you had the lap band or Rouz-en-Y gastric bypass, you also have a small opening at the bottom of your pouch. Because of that, liquids dont stay in the pouch long at all, which is why they recommend not drinking with meals; drinking with meals washes food right out of your pouch. If you had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy or duodenal switch, you have a pyloric valve between your sleeve and small intestine, so liquids stay in there longer. As long as you are able to burp and pass gas, ...

During VSG, the surgeon removes a majority of the stomach, creating a new banana-shaped stomach from the remaining component. This procedure decreases the production of ghrelin, the hunger hormone, so patients are less hungry. Additionally, the new stomach processes food faster, creating early feelings of fullness.. At Mass General, VSG is usually performed laparoscopically with a few small incisions. Surgeons use narrow cylindrical tubes called trocars to access the abdominal cavity through small incisions in the upper abdominal wall.. The duration of this procedure ranges from 30 to 60 minutes. After the procedure, you will stay at the hospital for one or two nights. We recommend taking off three to four weeks from work.. ...
Our data indicate that the beneficial effects of VSG on body weight and glucose metabolism in the rat are independent of MC4R function. VSG also affects macronutrient preference in the rat (the present study and Ref. 26), and these effects are independent of MC4R function as well. Finally, in this small-scale human study, the improvements in body weight and Hb A1c levels after VSG in human subjects with the common variants rs34114122 or I251L are not different from those observed in noncarriers.. In this study, we replicated as well as expanded on key elements of the obesity phenotype observed in MC4R-deficient rats (18). In particular, we found that MC4R deficiency in the rat increases lean mass in addition to fat mass and induces glucose intolerance. Together with previous observations (18), our data confirm that the MC4R-deficient rat is a useful animal model to study the components of MC4R signaling that regulate feeding, body weight, and glucose regulation. We also confirmed our previous ...

The incidence of gallstones and gallbladder sludge is known to be higher in patients after gastrectomy than in general population. This higher incidence is probably related to surgical dissection of the vagus nerve branches and the anatomical gastrointestinal reconstruction. Therefore, some surgeons perform routine concomitant cholecystectomy during standard surgery for gastric malignancies. However, not all the patients who are diagnosed to have cholelithiasis after gastric cancer surgery will develop symptoms or require additional surgical treatments and a standard laparoscopic cholecystectomy is feasible even in those patients who underwent previous gastric surgery ...

In this video presentation we present a case of food intolerance after sleeve gastrectomy. The patient is a 68-year-old female with a BMI of 35.8kg/m2 who underwent a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and hiatal hernia repair at an outside hospital. Soon after her initial procedure she developed progressive dysphagia, vomiting and chest discomfort. She was seen by a gastroenterologist. Manometry was...
This richly illustrated volume describes the performance of total and subtotal gastrectomy with extended D2 lymphadenectomy by providing a detailed step-by-step guide to both manual and mechanical procedures. Gastric cancer is the fourth most commonly occurring cancer, and the second most common cancer-related cause of death worldwide, and surgery remains the only potentially curative treatment. Although several aspects of surgical management are still controversial, all guidelines for the treatment of curable gastric cancer recommend subtotal gastrectomy (for tumors located in the antrum and corpus) or total gastrectomy (for tumors located in the fundus) with extended D2 lymphadenectomy. Various technical tips and secrets are revealed that serve to simplify the procedure and simultaneously make it more effective: by rendering esophagojejunal and gastrojejunal anastomosis more secure, the risk of leakage is minimized. High-quality intraoperative color photographs and drawings covering all steps ...
Background This study aimed to determine early postoperative changes of plasma polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (PUFAs) following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). postoperation oral feeding compared to preoperation. Plasma AA levels and AA/EPA ratio were significantly increased in sleeve gastrectomy patients after postoperation oral feeding compared to postoperation day 1. Serum PGE2 amounts and AA/DHA proportion was higher in sleeve gastrectomy sufferers at preoperation considerably, postoperation time 1 and after postoperation dental feeding in comparison with control group sufferers. Conclusion Elevated peripheral insulin awareness Rabbit Polyclonal to mGluR7 connected with LSG may are likely involved in the significant boost of plasma AA amounts in sleeve gastrectomy sufferers following postoperation dental nourishing. The significant upsurge in PGE2 amounts and AA/DHA proportion in sleeve gastrectomy group sufferers also confirms the current presence of a 9041-93-4 ...
One of the other terms for Vertical Sleeve surgery is the gastric sleeve surgery.

Type 2 diabetes may cause severe complications such as nephropathy and retinopathy. Additionally, it is associated with increased risk for cardiovascular events and diseases. Surgical intervention with gastric bypass has been shown to attenuate glycemic levels in obese patient comorbid with type 2 diabetes. However, since gastric bypass is not a standard procedure, surgical protocol including stomach and small intestine reconstruction may be varied. The investigators and others have found that stomach and small intestine reconstruction may affect the efficacy of diabetic treatment. In this study, the investigators will compare the efficacy of Billroth II and Roux en Y reconstruction on glycemic control in stomach cancer patients with type 2 diabetes. Both Billroth II and Roux en Y are used in stomach-small intestine reconstruction after subtotal gastrectomy. No differences in postoperative outcomes and quality of life have been reported in Billroth II and Roux en Y reconstruction ...

This procedure is among themost invasive gastrointestinal procedures and is known to carry substantial surgical risks. Methods: The National Clinical Database was used to retrieve records on more than 1,200,000 surgical cases from 3500 hospitals in 2011. After data cleanup, 20,011 records from 1623 hospitals were analyzed for procedures performed between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2011. Results: The average patient age ...
BACKGROUND: The data are scarce on the outcome for elderly patients presenting with resectable gastric cancer in the West who have been treated with minimally invasive surgery. This report presents the authors early experience with totally laparoscopic gastric resections for cancer in elderly patients. METHODS: A total of 20 patients underwent laparoscopic gastrectomy procedures: 14 distal, 5 subtotal, and 1 total gastrectomy. The male-to-female ratio was 15 to 5. The ages ranged from 75 to 88 years (mean, 80 years). RESULTS: All cases were managed laparoscopically with R0 resection. Four patients needed high-dependency unit care postoperatively. There were no perioperative deaths. The median time required for the procedure was 212 min, and time to diet was 4 days. The hospital stay was 8 days. Four patients experienced significant complications, with two patients requiring reoperation. The pathology was adenocarcinoma for 17 patients and high-grade dysplasia for 3 patients. CONCLUSION: Among elderly
The stomach naturally inflates during eating and deflates during digestion, and its the size of the stomach that determines when were hungry and when were full.. A Sleeve Gastrectomy is a relatively new approach that involves removing the lateral 2/3rds of the stomach with a stapling device. This can be done laparoscopically (key hole surgery) but is not reversible.. Rather than a round pouch, the stomach becomes narrow with a residual capacity of about 200mls, making it smaller and easier to fill up. The sleeve fills and empties like a normal stomach and feels quite normal to eat with.. Sometimes it is offered to patients as part of a two stage Bypass operation particularly for people with a BMI,60 because it allows good weight loss until the patient gets down to a safe weight and the more radical bypass can be offered laparoscopically.. ...

Background: Surveillance of healthcare-associated infection has been associated with a reduction in surgical site infection (SSI). Aim: To evaluate the Korean Nosocomial Infection Surveillance System (KONIS) in order to assess its effects on SSI since it was introduced. Methods: SSI data after gastrectomy, total hip arthroplasty (THA), and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) between 2008 and 2012 were analysed. The pooled incidence of SSI was calculated for each year; the same analyses were also conducted from hospitals that had participated in KONIS for at least three consecutive years. Standardized SSI rates for each year were calculated by adjusting for SSI risk factors. SSI trends were analysed using the Cochran-Armitage test. Findings: The SSI rate following gastrectomy was 3.12% (522/16,918). There was a significant trend of decreased crude SSI rates over five years. This trend was also evident in analysis of hospitals that had participated for more than three years. The SSI rate for THA was ...

Currently there is no definitive diagnostic modality for surveillance to detect this form of gastric cancer (GC) which carries a poor prognosis and high mortality. Prophylactic total gastrectomy
A common complication after bariatric surgery is hair loss, which is related to rapid weight reduction, but zinc, iron, and other micronutrient deficiencies can also be involved. Little is studied after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). A prospective observational study was performed of 42 morbidly obese females undergoing LSG. Incidence of hair loss was monitored. Micronutrients were investigated preoperatively and three, six, and 12 months after surgery. Sixteen patients (41%) reported hair loss in the postoperative course. A significant association was observed between hair loss and zinc levels (P = 0.021) but mean zinc levels were within the normal range in patients reporting hair loss. Only three patients (7.7%) presented low zinc levels, all of them reporting hair loss. There was also a significant association between iron levels and alopecia (P = 0.017), but mean values of the patients with hair loss were within normal range. Only four patients (10.2%) presented low iron levels, all ...
Obesity is a public health priority because of the associated increase in morbidity and cardiovascular mortality. Currently, the most effective treatment for severe obesity is bariatric surgery, which induces sustained weight loss and is associated with a long-term reduction in obesity-associated comorbidity and cardiovascular mortality. The current understanding of the mechanisms underlying these beneficial effects suggests that a crucial role is played by the unique metabolic and hormonal changes after bariatric surgeries, in particular Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or vertical sleeve gastrectomy, rather than simply as the consequence of weight loss. The gut hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which increases rapidly after certain bariatric surgeries such as Roux en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy, but not after dietary restriction, seems to specifically mediate some metabolic benefits of bariatric surgery. In the present study, which uses a rat model of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, ...
Our study suggests that the functional advantages of R-Y can continue for a prolonged period after LDG. Evaluation of long-term clinical outcomes demonstrated that patients who underwent R-Y reconstruction had less residue in, and less bile reflux into, the remnant stomach. Consequently, the incidence of gastritis or esophagitis on endoscopic examination was lower in the R-Y group than in the B-I group. We previously evaluated short-term outcomes after LDG and reported several advantages of R-Y over B-I, consistent with the results of the present study [15]. Previous studies of short-term outcomes have shown that R-Y reconstruction, compared with B-I, is associated with lower incidences of gastroesophageal reflux, bile reflux, and remnant gastritis on endoscopic examination [12, 20, 21, 22]. Gastroesophageal reflux, as assessed by dynamic scintiscan, is also less frequent after R-Y than after B-I [23]. In addition, bile reflux on bilirubin monitoring and biliary scintigraphy is mild after R-Y ...
In Switzerland, 5,500 operations to combat morbid obesity are conducted every year. Gastric bypasses and sleeve gastrectomy operations perform similarly: patients lose two-thirds of their excess weight in the long term, as researchers from the University of Basel at the St. Claraspital report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). When it comes to gastric acid reflux, the bypass clearly shows better results.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Postprandial gastrointestinal hormone production is different, depending on the type of reconstruction following total gastrectomy. AU - Kalmár, Katalin. AU - Németh, József. AU - Kelemen, Ágoston. AU - Horváth, Örs Péter. PY - 2006/4/1. Y1 - 2006/4/1. N2 - Objectives: The present study examines the differences in gastrointestinal hormone production at 3 different reconstruction types after total gastrectomy. Background Data: Total gastrectomy causes significant weight loss, mainly due to a reduced caloric intake probably because of a lack of initiative to eat or early satiety during meals. Behind this phenomenon a disturbed gastrointestinal hormone production can be presumed. Methods: Patients participating in a randomized study were recruited for the clinical experiment. Seven patients with simple Roux-en-Y reconstruction, 11 with aboral pouch (AP) construction, and 10 with aboral pouch with preserved duodenal passage (APwPDP) reconstruction, as well as 6 healthy ...

Background: Both gastric bypass (GB) and duodenal switch with sleeve gastrectomy (DS) have been widely used as bariatric surgeries, and DS appears to be superior to GB. The aim of this study was to better understand the mechanisms leading to body weight loss by comparing these two procedures in experimental models of rats. Methods: Animals were subjected to GB, DS or laparotomy (controls), and monitored by an open-circuit indirect calorimeter composed of comprehensive laboratory animal monitoring system and adiabatic bomb calorimeter. Results: Body weight loss was greater after DS than GB. Food intake was reduced after DS but not GB. Energy expenditure was increased after either GB or DS. Fecal energy content was increased after DS but not GB. Conclusion: GB induced body weight loss by increasing energy expenditure, whereas DS induced greater body weight loss by reducing food intake, increasing energy expenditure and causing malabsorption in rat models ...

The clinical value of a non-curative resection for gastric cancer is still controversial. We analyzed the clinical outcomes of patients who underwent non-curative gastric resection. Data from a total of 178 patients who underwent non-curative resection for advanced gastric cancer at Seoul St. Marys hospital were reviewed. Factors related to the incurability were classified as peritoneal metastasis (P), liver metastasis (H), extra-abdominal metastasis (X), direct adjacent organ invasion that was unresectable (T). The clinicopathologic data, survival, and quality of life of patients were evaluated. The overall median survival time was 12.1 months, and that for the patients with gastrectomy with chemotherapy was 14.3 months. Operation-related complications occurred in 20 patients (11.2 %). Five patients (2.8 %) died of postoperative complications within 30 days, and 43 patients (24.2 %) had symptoms and signs of gastric outlet obstruction or uncontrolled bleeding. The mean duration of postoperative

SINGAPORE: A more precise surgery method is now available to those suffering from stomach cancer. Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) has become the first in Southeast Asia to perform the robotic gastrectomy procedure. Stomach cancer is the fifth most common cancer in Singapore, and doctors say that stomach cancer is largely triggered by poor lifestyle choices, such as overeating or eating too much barbequed food. Only a small percentage is caused by genetic factors. 75-year-old Loh Ah Mye was diagnosed with stage one stomach cancer last month. But due to her age, doctors found it risky for her to go through the usual key hole surgery to remove cancer cells. She opted to undergo the robotic gastrectomy procedure, and became the first person in Southeast Asia to do so. The procedure is commonly performed in Korea and Japan, where the incidence of stomach cancer is high. Madam Loh... Full article: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/singaporelocalnews... ...
Amputation neuromas (ANs) are reactive hyperplasia of nerve tissues that occur after a trauma or surgery involving the peripheral nerves. Only two previous reports of ANs occurring around the stomach and post gastrectomy have been reported. We report the case of a patient with AN near the remnant stomach who underwent distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer. A 76-year-old man underwent distal gastrectomy, D1+ lymphadenectomy, and Billroth-I reconstruction for early gastric cancer in another hospital at 63 years of age. A regular gastrointestinal endoscopic follow-up examination after gastrectomy revealed an ulcerative lesion on the lesser curvature of the remnant stomach, which was diagnosed as remnant gastric cancer based on the histopathological examination. Then, he was transferred to our hospital. An upper gastrointestinal series and endoscopy revealed an 18-mm Type 0-IIc lesion on the lesser curvature of the remnant stomach with an estimated depth within the mucosa (T1a). An abdominal contrast
Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) is a type of stomach (gastric) cancer that runs through families. HDGC is different from other types of stomach cancer because the cancer cells do not form into a solid tumor. Instead, HDGC cancer cells disperse or scatter throughout the stomach tissue. Because of this, this type of cancer spreads (metastasizes) more easily to other parts of the body.. Symptoms of this condition are often not recognized until the cancer is in later stages. These symptoms may include stomach pain, vomiting, and weight loss. Unfortunately, this type of cancer is difficult to catch in early stages. Therefore, if you have a history of HDGC in your family, it is important to get regular and frequent stomach (endoscopy) exams to detect for any cancer cell formation.. HDGC is caused by a genetic mutation in the CDH1 gene which is located on chromosome 16. When a mutation is present in the gene, the gene is unable to pass along the correct instructions to the rest of the cells of ...

A variation of the biliopancreatic diversion includes a Duodenal switch. The part of the stomach along its greater curve is resected. The stomach is tubulized with a residual volume of about 150 ml. This volume reduction provides the food intake restriction component of this operation. This type of gastric resection is anatomically and functionally irreversible. The stomach is then disconnected from the duodenum and connected to the distal part of the small intestine. The duodenum and the upper part of the small intestine are reattached to the rest at about 75-100 cm from the colon ...
Introduction Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a bariatric procedure with very good long-term weight-reducing and metabolic effects. All procedures were performed without over-sewing of the staple line. Results The average %EBMIL (excess body mass index loss) in group 1 patients with minor sleeve restriction reached 54.1% and average %EWL (excess weight loss) was 50.8% while in group 2 with major sleeve restriction the average %EBMIL reached 69.7% and average %EWL was 66.8%. Final weight reduction was significantly higher in group 2 patients compared to group 1 patients with smaller sleeve restriction. Out of 49 patients with preoperatively diagnosed T2DM (type 2 diabetes mellitus) was completely resolved in 70.8%. Pre-operatively diagnosed hypertension normalized in 64.2% improved in 23.2% and remained unchanged in 12.6% of patients. Conclusions Carefully performed LSG without over-sewing INNO-406 the staple line is feasible and safe. A better weight-reducing effect was present in ...
A cancer predisposition syndrome with increased susceptibility to diffuse gastric cancer. Diffuse gastric cancer is a malignant disease characterized by poorly differentiated infiltrating lesions resulting in thickening of the stomach. Malignant tumors start in the stomach, can spread to the esophagus or the small intestine, and can extend through the stomach wall to nearby lymph nodes and organs. It also can metastasize to other parts of the body ...

This study revealed that preoperative pregabalin (150mg) exerted no effect on intraoperative remifentanil consumption, post-surgical pain, or consumption of fentanyl in PCA within 24 h of gastrectomy. Pregabalin-related adverse effects, such as dizziness, sedation, and dry mouth, did not differ between the two groups.. A nociceptive stimulus caused by tissue injury during surgery releases multiple inflammatory mediators and neurotransmitters, which leads to peripheral sensitization, and subsequently produces central sensitization through afferent input to the central nervous system[8]. Although the mechanisms underlying progression from acute to chronic pain is not completely understood, controlling acute postoperative pain is critical because it poses a risk of chronic pain [9]. Acute postoperative pain is recognized to have early inflammatory and late neuropathic constituents [10]; therefore, preventing chronic pain involves not only alleviating inflammatory pain but also addressing ...

Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine3). A case of peripheral neuropathy due to vitamin B1 deficiency developed 6 months after pylorus-preserving subtotal gastrectomy is reported. Pylorus-preserving total gastrectomy and reconstruction by jejunal pouch interposition with fundoplication was performed for gastric cancer in a 32-yera-old man. He had a balanced diet and no alcohol postoperatively. Abdominal computed tomography 3 months after operation revealed marked dilatation of the interposed jejunum. The quantity of daily oral intake had been sufficient since 4 months after operation; however, the patient complained of dysesthesia and muscle weakness in the distal parts of the lower extremities 6 months after operation. The sensory action potential of the sural nerve was not evoked during electrophysiologic examination. The blood level of vitamin B1was decreased as 11 ng/ml (normal range: 20-50). Symptoms gradually improved following vitamin B1 administration. Caution should be paid to ...
Surgeon Matthew A. Hutter, MD, FACS, discusses the first report from the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP)
Mesenteric panniculitis is an uncommon pathology, of poorly understood etiology, characterized by progressive inflammation and fibrosis of the small bowel mesentery. This disease has been reported usually after other abdominal surgeries. We present two cases of young male patients who underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and developed abdominal symptoms within 45-60 days of surgery. Both were investigated for known post-bariatric complications. While first patient presented (5 months later) at an irreversible stage and died within 8-9 months of primary surgery, in second patient, the disease process could be reversed through early intervention, diagnosis, treatment, and compliance ...
For CDH1 mutation carriers, the current consensus recommendation is to consider prophylactic gastrectomy, performed by an expert surgeon, in the third decade of life. This recommendation is made because, although asymptomatic CDH1 mutation carriers have been identified to have multifocal tiny signet ring cell cancers, these are not reliably detected at gastroscopy, even with advanced imaging techniques.. The risk of gastric cancer is less than 1% under the age of 20 years, so annual surveillance gastroscopy with targeted and random biopsies, according to an international protocol, is recommended for CDH1 mutation carriers aged 16-20 years.. Breast surveillance guided by a specialist with annual breast MRI (which can be combined with mammography) starting at age 30 years is recommended for women with a CDH1 mutation.. Carrying a CDH1 mutation has significant implications. Expert care is important but not always easy to access. Probands and families presenting purely with breast cancer in whom a ...
Once a CDH-1 mutation has been identified in an asymptomatic individual, the therapeutic options currently available are either endoscopic surveillance with the aim of identifying an early curable lesion or prophylactic gastrectomy.. Endoscopic gastric cancer surveillance is unproven. The problems associated with this approach include the difficulty in identifying submucosal lesions and sampling bias in a macroscopically normal appearing mucosa. However, if there is a site predilection for intramucosal disease, as suggested by Charlton and colleagues17 in this issue of Gut[see page 814], then it may be possible to perform targeted biopsies. In their series of six cases the signet ring carcinoma foci density was five times greater in the transitional zone than in the body or antral mucosa. This region occupies less than 10% of the gastric mucosal surface and is characterised histopathologically by a lack of gastric secreting G cells. Hence it is not an easily identifiable area endoscopically. ...

article{b965718b-079f-42d9-927f-b1c79b44d440, abstract = {BACKGROUND: Gastrectomy (Gx) causes osteopenia. The hypothesis tested in the present study is that Gx affects Ca homeostasis and that an impaired ability to handle Ca contributes to the Gx-evoked osteopenia. METHODS: SHAM-operated and Gx rats were compared with respect to changes in blood Ca2+ after oral or intravenous loads of CaCl2 1-2 weeks or 2-4 months after the operations. RESULTS: Different doses of oral CaCl2 raised blood Ca2+ more in Gx than in SHAM rats, more so after 2-4 months than after 1-2 weeks.
