BACKGROUND Causes of weight loss failure after sleeve gastrectomy (SG) are still controversial. The impact of the size of the sleeve continues to be debated. OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to determine the impact of sleeve volumes assessed at 3 months using gastric computed tomography (CT) on weight loss at 18 months. SETTING University Hospital,(More)
BACKGROUND A subgroup of obese patients without metabolic disorders has been identified and defined as metabolically healthy but morbidly obese (MHMO). OBJECTIVES To compare Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) outcomes between MHMO and metabolically unhealthy morbidly obese (MUMO) patients to assess whether the obesity phenotype could affect the results.

Severe nutrition complications after bariatric surgery remain poorly described. The aim of this case series was to identify specific factors associated with nutrition complications after bariatric surgery and to characterize their nutrition disorders. We retrospectively reviewed all people referred to the clinical nutrition intensive care unit of our(More)
This study investigated miR-148b as a potential physiological actor of physical inactivity-induced effects in skeletal muscle. By using animal and human protocols, we demonstrated that the early phase of transition toward inactivity was associated with an increase in muscle miR-148b content, which triggered the downregulation of NRAS and ROCK1 target genes.(More)
INTRODUCTION AND PURPOSE Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) is gaining ground in the field of bariatric surgery. Data are scarce on its impact on esophagogastric physiology. Our aim was to evaluate the impact of SG on esophagogastric motility with high-resolution impedance manometry (HRIM) and to assess the usefulness of HRIM in patients with upper gastrointestinal(More)
Weight loss failure occurs in 8% to 40% of patients after gastric bypass (GBP). The aim of our study was to analyse the predictive factors of weight loss at 1 year so as to select the best candidates for this surgery and reduce the failures. We included 73 patients treated by laparoscopic GBP. We retrospectively analysed the predictive factors of weight(More)
INTRODUCTION Diffuse esophageal leiomyomatosis is a rare disease. Misdiagnosis is frequent and previous surgeries can complicate surgical management. The only treatment described for severe symptomatic cases is esophagectomy. PRESENTATION OF CASE We describe a case of diffuse esophageal leiomyomatosis associated with Alport syndrome in a 21 year-old(More)
OBJECTIVES The success of longitudinal sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is perceived as being potentially limited by dilatation of the remaining gastric tube during the follow-up. The aim of this prospective study was to determine the incidence and the characteristics of sleeve dilatation during the first post-operative year. MATERIALS AND METHODS Gastric(More)
OBJECTIVE Abdominal tuberculosis is a rare disease. The clinical and radiological manifestations are non-specific and the diagnosis is difficult. Our objective was to describe the characteristics and treatment of patients presenting with abdominal tuberculosis in a low-incidence country. PATIENTS AND METHODS We reviewed the clinical, diagnostic,(More)
