INTRODUCTION: One of the most acceptable procedures in bariatric surgery is laparoscopic gastric bypass. Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is a common technique used in bariatric surgery. Recently, one anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) has been suggested as a simple, fast, and effective technique for obesity treatment. This study aims to compare the frequency of histologically proven bile reflux in OAGB and RYGB among patients with morbid obesity. METHODS: This prospective cohort study was performed from 2015 to 2017 in the Department Of Bariatric Surgery of [blinded]...

BACKGROUND: Pharyngeal pouch surgical treatments can be carried out via an endoscopic or open approach. Injection of botulinum toxin into the cricopharyngeus was first described as an alternative treatment to the more invasive surgical procedures performed for cricopharyngeal dysfunction. It has not been previously described as a treatment option for pharyngeal pouch. OBJECTIVES: To compare operative time, average stay, complication rates and symptom control between endoscopic laser diverticulotomy, botulinum toxin injection and open procedures for pharyngeal pouch patients...

PURPOSE AND DESIGN: Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) develops as a consequence of gastroesophageal reflux disease and Barrett's esophagus (BE). While combination therapy with chemotherapy or concurrent chemoradiotherapy followed by esophagectomy improves survival in more advanced tumors, the optimal treatment strategy for early-stage EAC is undefined. Endoscopic eradication therapy, consisting of endoscopic resection and mucosal ablation, has revolutionized therapy for superficial (T1a) EAC in BE and allows for esophageal preservation in appropriate patients at low risk for lymph node metastasis (LNM)...

INTRODUCTION: Interarytenoid injection augmentation at the time of initial diagnostic endoscopy for aspiration and dysphagia may result in near-immediate improvement in swallowing function, potentially obviating the need for future formal endoscopic repair of type 1 laryngeal cleft. Interarytenoid injection augmentation may also address physiologic aspiration. Early treatment of type 1 laryngeal cleft may allow for expedited liberalization of feedings. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of interarytenoid injection augmentation (IIA) for type 1 laryngeal clefts (LC-1) on short-term swallowing function assessed by videofluoroscopic swallowing study (VFSS)...

BACKGROUND: Although around 30% of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are insufficiently treated with medical therapy, only 1% opt for surgical therapy. One of the reasons behind this multifactorial phenomenon is the described adverse effect of long-term dysphagia or gastric bloating syndrome after surgical treatment. Aim of this study was to evaluate the most common side effects associated with anti-reflux surgery, as well as long-term outcomes in a large cohort of highly surgically standardized patients after laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF)...

INTRODUCTION: Non-refluxing ureteral reimplantation is favored in pediatric renal transplantation to prevent complications, such as vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in the transplant ureter. VUR resulting in febrile urinary tract infections remains a problem in this population, leading to repeated hospitalizations and increased morbidity. Revision of the vesicoureteral anastomosis can be a surgical challenge due to scar tissue and tenuous vascularity of the transplant ureter. Therefore, alternative options such as endoscopic injection of Deflux at the neo-orifice and surveillance with prophylactic antibiotics have emerged as potential treatment modalities for transplant ureter VUR...

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS: Achalasia is characterized by the absence of lower esophageal sphincter relaxation and esophageal aperistalsis. Diagnosis is confirmed through high-resolution esophageal manometry. Laparoscopic myotomy is the standard treatment, but peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is a safe and effective alternative, with good short-term and medium-term results. Our aim was to describe the short-term and medium-term experience with POEM at a tertiary care center. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was conducted within the time frame of November 2014 and February 2017...
