Obesity is a worldwide increasing concern, and its prevalence has risen rapidly over the past several decades. Since nonsurgical treatment for weight loss in morbidly obese patients has poor long-term outcomes, bariatric surgery has gained acceptance and popularity in the last years. The laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass has proved to be safe and effective, with successful long-term outcomes in morbidly obese patients. Key elements for the success of the operation are careful patient selection, a comprehensive preoperative evaluation, and a properly executed operation that respects the key technical elements.

This study describes a stepwise training program to teach a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). Results of a resident are compared to experienced bariatric surgeons (EBS).
Various surgical techniques exist to create the gastrojejunostomy during laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). Linear-stapled anastomosis (LSA) and circular-stapled anastomosis (CSA) are two ...
One of the more common effective surgical procedures performed today for obesity is the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. Though effective, both early and late complications do occur. Gastric remnant hemorrha...
Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is associated with high long-term failure rates, often requiring conversion to an alternative bariatric procedure. The most efficacious procedure after f...
Previously we have reported variation in pre-operative clinical characteristics between women and men undergoing laparoscopic roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). However, variation by sex in post-operat...
This study try to identify differences in cost, length of operation and results between two different bariatric surgical techniques, the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and the Singl...
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 ...
This study try to identify differences in length of operation, weight loss and complications, between two different bariatric surgical techniques, the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass...
Changes in homocysteine values after bariatric surgery remain controversially discussed. This is the first comprehensive summary to depict timeline changes in homocysteine levels following...
Prospective randomized clinical trial aiming to compare laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) with primary outcome on excess weight loss, and secondary o...
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.
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.
A Y-shaped surgical anastomosis of any part of the digestive system which includes the small intestine as the eventual drainage site.
Success in bringing an effort to the desired end; the degree or level of success attained in some specified area (esp. scholastic) or in general.
Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
