Management of Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction (SOD) requires advanced techniques (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography via gastrostomy [GERCP]) after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) for obesity. Transduodenal sphincteroplasty (TS) is also performed yet carries the risks of surgery. We hypothesized that TS would have increased morbidity and mortality but provide a more durable remission of symptoms.

Gastro-gastric fistulas (GGF) are reported to be as high as 12% after gastric bypass for treatment of morbid obesity. While different endoscopic methods are described, the management traditionally con...
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...
The outcome of peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) in patients with prior Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is not known and some experts have recommended against its performance in this patient popula...
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).
Endoscopic screening has been adopted in South Korea for the national screening of gastric cancer (GC). This study aimed to assess the effect on overall survival of GC patients and determine the optim...
Despite the high success rates of gastric bypass in the short and long terms, little is known about possible anatomopathological changes that can occur in these patients. The objective is ...
The prognosis of patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer is dismal. Hence, palliation of tumor-associated symptoms, in particular jaundice due to low bile duct obstruction and gastri...
Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction (SOD) refers to biliary kinetic abnormality of the sphincter of Oddi (SO), often accompanied by pain, hepatic and pancreatic enzyme elevation, common bile duc...
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...
Open-label single center study of duloxetine in patients with SOD who have failed to respond to the standard treatments. This protocol is designed to explore the tolerability and efficacy...
Surgical incision of the SPHINCTER OF ODDI in the management of COMMON BILE DUCT DISEASES (e.g., CHOLEDOCHOLITHIASIS; and SPHINCTER OF ODDI DYSFUNCTION).
Organic or functional motility disorder involving the SPHINCTER OF ODDI and associated with biliary COLIC. Pathological changes are most often seen in the COMMON BILE DUCT sphincter, and less commonly the PANCREATIC DUCT sphincter.
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
A motility disorder characterized by biliary COLIC, absence of GALLSTONES, and an abnormal GALLBLADDER ejection fraction. It is caused by gallbladder dyskinesia and/or SPHINCTER OF ODDI DYSFUNCTION.
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.
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...
