Obesity is an increasing health problem in the United Kingdom (UK) and is predicted to worsen. In the UK and worldwide the three most commonly performed operations are laparoscopic ...
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...
The purpose of this study is to determine laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a safer surgery than the gastric bypass, gives similar weight losses and that the safety of gastric in private ...
The aim of the study is to compare two different bariatric procedures performed in patients with 65 years or more: gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. Primary outcomes will be weight lo...
This is nationwide registry-based randomized clinical multicenter trial in which patients will be randomized to gastric bypass (RYGB) or sleeve gastrectomy (SG). The co-primary endpoint ar...
Bariatric surgery represents the most effective treatment for obesity and its related comorbidities. The present study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of sleeve gastrectomy plus jejunojejunal...
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...
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) and Sleeve Gastrectomy (SG) are the most effective therapies for obesity and may have beneficial effects on the immune system. Therefore, we compared RYGB versus SG out...
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)...
Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) induce substantial weight loss and improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes, but it is not clear whether these occur via th...
Excision of the whole (total gastrectomy) or part (subtotal gastrectomy, partial gastrectomy, gastric resection) of the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)
That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.
Decrease, loss, or removal of the mineral constituents of bones. Temporary loss of bone mineral content is especially associated with space flight, weightlessness, and extended immobilization. OSTEOPOROSIS is permanent, includes reduction of total bone mass, and is associated with increased rate of fractures. CALCIFICATION, PHYSIOLOGIC is the process of bone remineralizing. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed; Nicogossian, Space Physiology and Medicine, 2d ed, pp327-33)
Removal of mineral constituents or salts from bone or bone tissue. Demineralization is used as a method of studying bone strength and bone chemistry.
The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.
