Summary of "Jejunojejunal Intussusception After Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: A Review."

Small bowel intussusception is a rare long-term complication after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the etiology of which remains unclear. Except for one series reporting on 23 patients, case reports represent the vast majority of all cases reported so far. With this complete review of the world literature, based on a total of 63 patients including 2 of our own cases, we provide an extensive overview of the subject. The origin of intussusception after gastric bypass is different from that of intussusception of other causes, in that there is usually no lead point. It is likely related to motility disorders in the divided small bowel, especially in the Roux limb. This rare condition may cause obstruction and lead to bowel necrosis if not recognized and treated promptly. Clinical presentation is not specific. Computerized tomography scan represents the diagnostic test of choice, but surgery is sometimes the only way to establish the diagnosis. Treatment may be limited to reduction if the small bowel is viable, but resection of the affected segment is recommended on the basis of this review, since it seems to result in fewer recurrences. Knowledge of this entity and a high index of suspicion are required to make the correct diagnosis and offer appropriate treatment in a timely fashion.

10-Year Outcomes After Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass.

The aim of the study was to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and long-term durability of Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) at an accredited center.

Small Bowel Limb Lengths and Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: a Systematic Review.

There is currently no consensus on the combined length of small bowel that should be bypassed as biliopancreatic or alimentary limb for optimum results with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. A number of diffe...

Gastrointestinal hormones and weight loss maintenance following Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass.

Factors underlying variable weight loss (WL) after Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) are poorly understood.

The hidden endoscopic burden of sleeve gastrectomy and its comparison with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

This study aimed to assess the endoscopic burden of bariatric surgical procedures at our trust. This is an enhanced parallel study to "The Hidden Endoscopic burden of Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass" publish...

Clinical Trials [2069 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Versus Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass

Several retrospective studies have shown same efficiency in regard to weight loss, with a lower rate of complications for the laparoscopic mini gastric bypass (LMGB) compared to Roux-en-Y ...

Comparison of Laparoscopic Traditional and Knotless Sutures

Background Excess weight and obesity is the fifth leading risk factor for global death. Bariatric surgery is considered as the only effective long-term treatment for morbid obesity. ...

Effect of Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass or Gastric Sleeve Surgery on Type 2 Diabetes

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass surgery (RYGB) ameliorates type 2 diabetes within days after surgery. Studies indicate that the gastric sleeve procedure has comparable effect on type 2 diabetes, ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.

Coronary artery bypass surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).

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.

Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.

Organizations representing designated geographic areas which have contracts under the PRO program to review the medical necessity, appropriateness, quality, and cost-effectiveness of care received by Medicare beneficiaries. Peer Review Improvement Act, PL 97-248, 1982.
