Currently Performed Surgeries RouxenY Gastric Bypass

RYGB involves the creation of a small gastric pouch that is then connected to a distal segment of small intestine (alimentary limb). The remainder of the stomach is left in situ but is disconnected from the food stream. It reconnects with the alimentary limb at the jejunojejunostomy (Fig. 1). The restrictive component is based on the small pouch as well as the narrow aperture connecting the gastric pouch to the jejunum. The malabsorptive component is marginal at best, as only 20 to 50 cm of small bowel is bypassed. The altered anatomic configuration leads to changes in gut hormones that may be associated with satiety, gastric emptying, and weight loss. Gastric bypass can be performed laparoscopically (LRYGB) or via the open approach with similar success rates (25,26). Mortality rates associated with gastric bypass surgery are reported to be between 0.3 and 2 (27-29). Early complications associated with gastric bypass include leakage, bleeding, pulmonary embolus, gastrojejunal...

Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass

Laparoscopic mini-gastric bypass (LMGB) has been proposed as a simple and effective treatment for morbid obesity (39). It differs from RYGB in that it has a smaller dissection area and fewer anastomoses. The lower antecolic gastrointestinal anastomosis is thought to be much easier to perform than the high retrocolic or antecolic gastrointestinal anastomosis used in LRYGB. In LMGB, the use of one less anastomosis and the provision of a better blood supply to the gastric tube may decrease the incidence of leakage. Data suggest that LMGB is a simpler and safer procedure than LRYGB, with shorter operating time, reduced hospital stay, and significantly less postoperative pain (40). However, there are controversies about the relative safety of the procedure mainly the incidence of marginal ulcer and reflux esophagitis (40).

Bariatric Surgeryrelated Micronutrient Deficiencies

By definition, micronutrients are essential nutrients that are required in only small quantities (milligrams or micrograms) such as minerals, trace elements, and vitamins. The micronutrient deficiencies of the RYGB, BPD, and BPD DS procedures are predictable based on the surgically altered anatomy. By bypassing the stomach, duodenum, and varying portions of the jejunum and ileum, malabsorption of thiamine, iron, folate, vitamin B12, calcium, and vitamin D may occur (Table 1). In general, the greater the malabsorption, the higher the risk of nutritional deficiencies. The prevalence of these deficiencies varies widely in the literature owing to differences in surgical technique, patient population, definition of deficiency, supplementation protocols, and length and completion of patient follow-up. For example, iron deficiency is reported to range from 20 to 49 and vitamin B12 deficiency from 26 to 70 (11-19). An accurate incidence of micronutrient deficiency following bariatric surgery...

Gastric Banding

The laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB) and the Swedish band are placed around the top portion of the stomach to reduce stomach size and thereby restrict the volume of ingested solid food. Both bands have been used widely throughout Europe, Australia, and South America for more than a decade, but only the LAGB has been Fig. 1. Restrictive weight-loss surgeries. (A) Vertical banded gastroplasty. Both a band and staples are used to create a small stomach pouch. (B) Adjustable gastric banding. A band made of a special material is placed around the stomach near its upper end, creating a small pouch of the upper stomach and a narrow passage into the larger remainder of the stomach. (C) Roux-en-Y gastric bypass a restrictive procedure in which a small proximal gastric pouch is created, followed by the creation of a jejunojejunostomy in a Y configuration to allow an end of the jejunum to be brought up and anastomosed to this proximal pouch.Drawings were rendered by A. Heffess and...

Anabolic Effector Systems

Food intake in both rats (174,175) and humans (176). Ghrelin infusion results in dramatic obesity, and circulating ghrelin levels are increased during fasting and rapidly decline after nutrients are provided to the stomach (172,173 for review, see ref. 177). Ghrelin binds to the growth hormone secretagog receptor, which is found in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus. NPY-producing cells in the ARC are critical mediators of the effect of ghrelin (178-181). Finally, clinical evidence points to elevated levels of ghrelin in weight-reduced patients (182) with the notable exception of patients who have been successfully treated for obesity by gastric bypass, in whom circulating ghrelin levels are close to undetectable (183).

Orexigenic Gut Peptides Ghrelin

In addition to calorie intake and meal composition, ghrelin levels appear to be influenced by the nutritional status of the individual. The basal level is shown to be reduced in chronic obesity with an attenuated postprandial response (118-120). The latter may explain persistent eating habits in obese patients. Paradoxically, the level is increased during fasting, cachexia (121), in states of malnutrition, and in patients with anorexia nervosa (122). Interestingly, and contrary to these findings, ghrelin levels are reduced after a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, but not other forms of antiobesity surgery, despite massive weight loss (33). One explanation might be that the surgery involves the removal of the ghrelin-secreting part of the stomach (33,123), although the real mechanism is still unknown. However, in addition to the mechanical restriction owing to reduced stomach size and hence reduced meal portions, it has been hypothesized that the decreased ghrelin level in these patients...

Socioeconomic Disparities In Obesity And Diabetes

So far, we have discussed overall trends. At every point in time, obesity and diabetes rates are higher in some populations than in others. Populations with higher rates generally include groups with less education, lower household income, blacks, and Native Americans, but there are some noticeable variations and interactions depending on whether we distinguish between moderate and severe obesity. For example, obesity as defined by a BMI of over 30 has been higher among men than women (although that gap has narrowed noticeably). However, severe obesity (BMI > 40) has been much higher among women for some time, and women also make up the vast majority (close to 85 ) of bariatric surgery patients (15).

Most Clinicians Currently Do Not Address Obesity

Despite the weight of the evidence and the broad consensus, there remains a great deal of clinical inertia against making a diagnosis of obesity and advising patients to lose weight. One study of more than 55,000 ambulatory care visits from the mid-1990s found that physicians reported obesity in only 38 and counseled only one-quarter of their obese patients (27). In another study of more than 12,000 obese adults, only 42 were advised to lose weight, and yet those who were so advised were more likely to try to do so (28). One might think that things have improved over the past 10 yr, but a recent study found that the number of patients who received advice to lose weight was actually lower in 2000 than it was in 1994 (40 , down from 44 ) (29). Physicians feel that there are many barriers to counseling their patients about weight loss. These include insufficient confidence, knowledge, and skills, as well as a perception that there are no effective therapies (30). Physicians seem more...

Role Of Allied Health Professionals In Assessment Of The Obese Patient

The evaluation proposed here is extensive. It may be unrealistic to expect a busy clinician to obtain, evaluate, and counsel around all the information that could be discussed with an obese patient. An alternative is to identify individuals with unique skills and specialized resources in the clinical environment who can be brought into service during the evaluation and treatment of these patients. Examples include registered dieticians to assist in evaluation of the diet, exercise physiologists who help with assessing exercise capacity and the safety of initiating an exercise program, psychologists or psychiatrists to help evaluate and treat psychological comorbidities such as depression, pharmacists who have an interest in weight loss medications, and surgeons who have experience in bariatric surgery. If a clinician is interested in taking a more active role in managing obesity in his or her practice it will be useful to identify resources in the community to refer patients to....

Physiological Changes

There are two major categories of weight-loss surgery gastric restriction and intestinal malabsorption. Restrictive operations create a small neogastric pouch and gastric outlet to decrease food intake. Malabsorptive procedures rearrange the small intestine in order to decrease the functional length or efficiency of the intestinal mucosa for nutrient absorption. Although the malabsorptive approach produces more rapid and profound weight loss than restrictive procedures, it also puts patients at risk of metabolic complications, such as vitamin deficiencies and protein-energy malnutrition (10). Restrictive procedures are considered simpler and safer than their malabsorptive counterparts, but may result in a smaller amount of long-term weight loss.

Neuroendocrine Changes

One way bariatric surgery is thought to produce weight loss is through its effect on the enterohypothalamic endocrine axis (12). Dramatic improvements in glycemic control have been observed in subjects with type 2 diabetes following bariatric surgery, specifically the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) procedure (13-17). In many cases, normal fasting plasma glucose concentrations are achieved prior to substantial weight loss (11,15,16). Data suggest that changes in circulating gut hormones may promote Le Roux et al. (12) have demonstrated a pleiotropic endocrine response to bariatric surgery, which might account for the appetite reduction that leads to long-term changes in body weight. Compared with lean and obese controls, postsurgical RYGB patients had increased postprandial plasma (PYY) and glucagon-like-peptide (GLP)-1, which favor enhanced satiety. Furthermore, those patients had early and exaggerated insulin responses, potentially mediating improved glycemic control. None of these...

Safety And Effectiveness

Efforts to address these shortfalls are part of a nationwide drive for quality control. Massachusetts was the first state to develop comprehensive evidence-based recommendations for best practices in weight loss surgery (6). Many professional societies and other stakeholders have also moved forward with various patient protection and quality performance initiatives These include, among others, the American College of Surgeons (ACS), with its Bariatric Surgery Center Network Accreditation Program (46) the Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) (47) the American Society of Bariatric Surgeons (ASBS) (48) Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and Aetna, Kaiser Permanente, Cigna, the California Association of Health Plans, HealthAmerica, and Blue Cross Blue Shields in South Dakota, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Idaho. The ACS program, for example, is in-depth and comprehensive. Based on the Massachusetts Lehman Center report (6), it specifies the necessary...

Micronutrient Deficiency

Thiamine (vitamin Bj) is absorbed mainly in the jejunum, by both active and passive diffusion. Because the biological half-life of the vitamin is rather short (in the range of 9 to 18 d) and only a small percentage of a high dose is absorbed (27), patients are at risk of developing deficiency syndromes after bariatric surgery. Over the past two decades, numerous case reports of thiamine deficiency have been reported following both restrictive and restrictive-malabsorptive surgeries (28-45). An acute deficiency of thiamine associated with rapidly progressing clinical symptoms appears to result from a combination of restricted food intake and persistent intractable vomiting. Symptoms commonly occur 1 to 3 mo postoperatively, although they may occur later. The clinical presentation varies, but three conditions have been reported. Classical Wernicke's encephalopathy is the most common presentation and consists of double vision, nystagmus, ataxia, and a global confusion manifested by...

Weight Reduction

This procedure is the treatment of choice for patients more than 100 lb over desired weight or who have a BMI greater than 40. The first portion (2030 mL) of the stomach is clipped with staples and anastomosed to the jejunum, bypassing most of the stomach, the entire duodenum and the first 15-20 cm of the jejunum. With this procedure mean weight loss is 65-75 or 35 of initial weight. This procedure can reverse the glycemia of type 2 diabetes if performed early. Perioperative mortality is less than 1 , with deficiencies of calcium, iron, vitamin D, and B12 because of malabsorption. Dumping syndrome and wound infections have been reported, with life-long follow-up necessary to prevent and treat deficiencies and the complications of ulcerations at the gastroenterostomy stoma and the duodenum. 2. Vertical banded gastroplasty. Staples are used to create a 15-20 mL gastric pouch in the upper stomach, with a small calibrated opening in the rest of the stomach. Mean...

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Still in its infancy, sleeve gastrectomy is a procedure currently being used as a bridge for surgery in patients with supermorbid obesity (BMI > 50) (34). Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a new procedure for weight loss with lower surgical risk than more complex surgeries, such as biliopancreatic diversion (BPD) with duodenal switch or RYGB (34). The procedure, which is exclusively restrictive, involves removing 80 of the stomach, leaving behind only a sleeve of the stomach. LSG may be particularly well-suited for the most surgically challenging high-risk patients, defined as those who are super-super-obese (BMI > 60) and those with severe comorbidities. Such patients have higher perioperative morbidity and mortality with weight-loss surgery. Postoperative complications are not increased however, they are more often fatal (35). Milone et al. have shown mean weight loss of 45 kg and percentage excess weight loss (EWL) of 35 at 6 mo with sleeve gastrectomy (36). Once weight...

Bariatric Surgery-Related Micronutrient Deficiencies Prophylactic Management and Monitoring for Nutritional Bariatric surgery is associated with development of several micronutrient deficiencies that are predictable based on the surgically altered anatomy and the imposed dietary changes. The three restrictive malabsorptive procedures Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), biliopancreatic diversion (BPD), and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD DS) pose a greater risk for micronutrient malabsorption and deficiency than the purely restrictive laparoscopic adjustable sili-cone gastric banding (LASGB). Metabolic and clinical deficiencies of two minerals (iron and calcium) and four vitamins (thiamine, folate, vitamin B12, vitamin D) have been well described in the literature. This chapter reviews the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, screening tests, and treatment for each micronutrient deficiency. With careful monitoring and adequate supplementation, these deficiencies are...

Surgical Treatment

Surgical approaches to the management of obesity have been used in the adult population for many years. Progressive improvement in surgical technique and refinement in selection criteria have led to improvements in outcome with reductions in morbidity and mortality. Nevertheless, these operations all carry with them considerable risks, and outcome is dependent on the availability of excellent ongoing postoperative medical and surgical care. In general these procedures are irreversible, with the exception of the laparoscopic band. At this time, the laparoscopic band is not currently available for licensed use in the pediatric or adolescent age group. Early studies of gastric banding in the adolescent age group appear promising (94). Surgical procedures largely fall into two categories, malabsorptive or restrictive. A combination of these approaches, the Roux-en-Y, provides a combination of reduction in the volume of the stomach as well as a small intestinal bypass. Several authors have...
