Name: Obesity surgery
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...
to evaluate the weight, nutritional and quality of life of low-income patients after ten years of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB).
Bone health declines in the initial years after Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB), but long-term skeletal effects are unclear.
One-anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) and single-anastomosis duodenal switch (SADS) have become increasingly popular weight loss strategies. However, data directly comparing the effectiveness of these...
For patients in whom laparoscopic adjustable gastric band has failed, conversion to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy are both options for further surgical treatment. There ...
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...
The goal of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy (weight loss and metabolic changes) of long (150 cm) versus very long (250cm) Roux alimentary limb gastric bypass in superobese...
The ability to assess ingestion in fine detail over the time course of a liquid meal allows for comparison of early and late meal features of drinking and may help dissociate manipulations...
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.
Process in which individuals take the initiative, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying resources for learning, choosing and implementing learning strategies and evaluating learning outcomes (Knowles, 1975)
Any situation where an animal or human is trained to respond differentially to two stimuli (e.g., approach and avoidance) under reward and punishment conditions and subsequently trained under reversed reward values (i.e., the approach which was previously rewarded is punished and vice versa).
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.
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...
