OBJECTIVES Natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is evolving as a promising alternative for abdominal surgery. IMTN Registry was designed to prospectively document early results of natural orifice surgery among a large group of clinical cases. METHODS Sixteen centers from 9 countries were approved to participate in the study, based on(More)
BACKGROUND We report the first human experience with an endoscopic duodenal-jejunal bypass sleeve (DJBS) in a community hospital. METHODS The DJBS is a 60-cm sleeve anchored in the duodenum to create a duodenal-jejunal bypass. In a 12-patient prospective, open-label, single-center, 12-week study, the device was endoscopically implanted, left in situ, and(More)
BACKGROUND The association between medical and dietetic-behavioral treatments of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has demonstrated to have variable results. The surgical treatment of T2DM is justifiable after the observation of a successful glycemic control in patients submitted to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and biliopancreatic diversion. Experiments have(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of the duodenal-jejunal bypass liner (DJBL), a 60-cm, impermeable fluoropolymer liner anchored in the duodenum to create a duodenal-jejunal bypass, on metabolic parameters in obese subjects with type 2 diabetes. METHODS Twenty-two subjects (mean age, 46.2±10.5 years) with type 2 diabetes and(More)
Electrical stimulation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) improves LES pressure without interfering with LES relaxation. The aim of this open-label pilot trial was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of long-term LES stimulation using a permanently implanted LES stimulator in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD patients who were(More)
BACKGROUND Vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) is a surgical technique that involves resection of a significant portion of the stomach. This surgery is sometimes associated with gastric leaks, which can be difficult to treat. The present study reports findings from laparoscopic greater curvature plication (LGCP), which is an alternative bariatric procedure(More)
BACKGROUND To demonstrate that bariatric procedures can be done with natural orifice visualization (NOTES) at 2 institutions (Nucleo Universitario de Estudos de Notes Centro de Cirurgia Experimental Vila do Conde-Junqueira, Vila do Conde, Portugal and Pontificia Universidade Catolica do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, RS, Brasil). NOTES is a new surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Dumping syndrome is one of ten most common complications in morbidly obese patients operated. Recent studies in relation to type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) in patients submitted to gastric bypass led us to examine the different outcomes in this group of patients. Our objective was to determine the difference in the prevalence of dumping syndrome(More)
Migration of the adjustable gastric band (AGB) is a serious complication which usually does not require emergency treatment, except when there is a risk to life. We report a 30-year-old patient who presented with syncope, melena and hypovolemic shock due to the intragastric erosion of an AGB, 13 months after laparoscopic band placement. The diagnosis of(More)
