Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) still remains the gold-standard bariatric procedure. Short-term weight loss and improvement of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) after LRYGB are well-documented. Little data are available on long-term weight loss and continued remission of DM2 in these patients. This study reports on weight loss and remission of DM2 in 576 consecutive patients who underwent primary LRYGB between August 2001 and August 2009 with at least 10-year follow up. All patients w...

Obesity is associated with a chronic inflammatory state and autoimmune diseases, but little is known about the role of B cells in this context and the changes in B cell activation factors during obesity and after weight loss. To test whether bariatric-surgery-induced weight loss ameliorates the systemic inflammatory state associated with B cell activation molecules. We conducted a prospective observational study in patients treated with bariatric surgery. Anthropometric and body composition meas...

Worldwide, music is commonly played in the operation room. The effect of music on surgical performance reportedly has varying results, while its effect on mental workload and key surgical stressor domains has only sparingly been investigated. Therefore, the aim is to assess the effect of recorded preferred music versus operating room noise on laparoscopic task performance and mental workload in a simulated setting. A four-sequence, four-period, two-treatment, randomized controlled crossover stud...

Intraoperative localization of endoluminal lesions is can be difficult during laparoscopy. Preoperative endoscopic marking is therefore necessary. Current methods include submucosal tattooing using visible dyes, which in case of transmural injection can impair surgical dissection. Tattooing using indocyanine green (ICG) coupled to intraoperative near-infrared (NIR) laparoscopy has been described. ICG is only visible under NIR-light, therefore, it doesn’t impair the surgical workflow under white ...

Currently, minimally invasive approach is preferred for the treatment of ventral hernias. After the introduction of extended view totally extraperitoneal (e-TEP) technique, there has been a constant debate over the choice of better approach. In this study, we compare the short-term outcomes of e-TEP and laparoscopic IPOM Plus repair for ventral hernias. This is a comparative, prospective single-center study done at GEM Hospital and research center Coimbatore, India from July 2018 to July 2019. A...
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic Heller myotomy fails in approximately 3.5% to 15% of patients. Evidence of successful laparoscopic reoperation is limited to a few studies. METHODS This case-control study was conducted in patients who underwent laparoscopic Heller myotomy reoperation (LHM-R) from 2008 to 2016. The operative outcomes, preoperative and last follow-up manometric parameters, and symptom questionnaire results, including the Eckardt, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease-Health Related Quality of Li...
Although early series focused on benign disease, minimally invasive pancreatoduodenectomy (MIPD) might be particularly suited for malignancy. Unlike their predecessors, fellowship-trained (FT) Hepatic-Pancreatic and Biliary (HPB) surgeons usually have equal skills in approaching peri-ampullary tumors (PT) either openly or via minimally invasive (MI) techniques. We retrospectively reviewed a MI-HPB-FT surgeon’s 10-year experience with PD. A sub-analysis of malignant PT was also done (MIPD-PT vs. ...

Two-dimensional high-definition (2D HD) endovision system is preferred for laparoscopic surgery. Recently, new generation three-dimensional (3D) HD and ultra-HD (4K) endovision systems are introduced to improve the safety and efficacy of laparoscopic surgery. There is limited evidence on superiority of one technology over the others. This experimental trial was designed to evaluate 2D HD, 3D HD and 4K HD endovision systems in performance of standardized tasks. This was a randomized, cross-over e...

Background Controversy exists regarding the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive inguinal hernia repairs in patients with a history of prior urologic pelvic operations (PUPO), such as a prostatectomy, which causes scarring and disruption of the retropubic tissue planes. Our study sought to examine whether a history of PUPO impacts surgical outcomes in males undergoing robotic-assisted inguinal hernia repair. Methods The Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative (AHSQC) database was...
Concomitant gallstones and common bile duct stones (CBDS) is a relatively frequent presentation. The optimal treatment remains controversial and the debate persists between two strategies. The one-stage approach: laparoscopic cholecystectomy with laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE) has been shown to be equally safe and more cost-effective than the more traditional two-stage approach: endoscopic retrograde cholangiography followed by laparoscopic cholecystectomy (ERCP + LC). However...
