The aim of this prospective randomized controlled trial is to compare the two procedures One-anastomosis gastric Bypass/Mini-gastric Bypass (OAGB/MGB) and Roux-en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) i...
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 cost, length of operation and results between two different bariatric surgical techniques, the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and the Singl...
The primary aim of this research project is to assess the safety and efficacy of the MGB operation in the UK
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...
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...
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...
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).
There is a growing interest in comparing the effectiveness and costs of alternative forms of bariatric surgery. We aimed to examine the per-patient, procedural costs of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB)...
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.
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).
A vessel that directly interconnects an artery and a vein, and that acts as a shunt to bypass the capillary bed. Not to be confused with surgical anastomosis, nor with arteriovenous fistula.
Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.
