OBJECTIVE Evaluate the long-term effects of bariatric surgery on type 2 diabetes (T2DM) remission and metabolic risk factors. BACKGROUND Although the impressive antidiabetic effects of bariatric surgery have been shown in short- and medium-term studies, the durability of these effects is uncertain. Specifically, long-term remission rates following(More)
BACKGROUNDS Despite increasing trend in single incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC), there is still controversy regarding its global acceptance as a routine practice. Our study aimed to compare surgical events, early in-hospital and later outcomes of SILC with conventional multiport laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). METHODS Through a randomized(More)
A growing body of evidence has demonstrated significant and sustained improvement in glycemic control in type 2 diabetes after bariatric surgery. However, there are limited data on the impact of bariatric surgery in type 1 diabetes (T1D). Only fewer than 10 cases of bariatric surgery in patients with T1D have been reported in the literature, which show a(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is rapidly gaining popularity. Estimating the risk of postoperative adverse events can improve surgical decision-making and informed patient consent. The objective of this study was to develop and validate a risk prediction model for early postoperative morbidity and mortality after LSG. METHODS Cases of(More)
Voice alteration is one of the most common complications after thyroidectomy. It has a serious effect on social communication and economic and psychosocial status of patients. It has been hypothesized that inflammation and edema in the surgery site has a major role in voice change after thyroidectomy. This randomized clinical trial study was design to(More)
BACKGROUND Anastomotic leakage after esophagectomy remains an important source of postoperative morbidity in spite of advances in the management of these patients. The aim of this study is to identify the predictive factors of cervical anastomotic leakage and its consequences after esophagectomy in patients with esophageal cancer treated in a high volume(More)
BACKGROUND Long-term results from randomized, controlled trials that compare medical therapy with surgical therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes are limited. METHODS We assessed outcomes 5 years after 150 patients who had type 2 diabetes and a body-mass index (BMI; the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters) of 27 to 43 were(More)
BACKGROUND The conversion rate of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) to laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has increased during recent years. The safety profile of one-step conversion of LAGB to LSG is not clear from the current literature. METHODS Using the database of the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement(More)
Introduction. Single-incision laparoscopic colectomy (SILC) is a viable and safe technique; however, there are no single-institution studies comparing outcomes of SILC for colon cancer with well-established minimally invasive techniques. We evaluated the short-term outcomes following SILC for cancer compared to a group of well-established minimally invasive(More)
