Moreover, most of reported cases have been limited to the anterolateral segments (segments 2, 3, 4b, 5, 6). We evaluate the clinical and oncologic outcome after LLR for HCC including the lesions located in the posterosuperior segments (segments… Continue Reading »
Reasons and Outcomes of Surgical Revision of Gastrojejunal Anastomotic Complications in Patients After Laparoscopic Rygbp for Morbid Obesity.
BACKGROUNDStenosis, ulceration and dilatation at the gastrojejunostomy (GJ) are recognized complications after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP). Treatment options for GJ complications include in most cases endoscopy; rarely, a surgical revision is needed. In this series we reviewed our experience with surgical revisions of the GJ in patients that did not respond to an endoscopic treatment… Continue Reading »
The effect of limb-length on weight loss after gastric bypass is controversial. Some studies have concluded longer bypasses increase weight loss while others have no effect of bypass length on weight loss. Review of the negative studies show generally small sample sizes and thus are likely to be at risk for a beta, type II… Continue Reading »
