Surgical measures for the treatment of morbid obesity include gastric bypass of the stomach and duodenum. We endoscopically evaluated the bypassed segments in 51 patients three to 24 months after a standard gastric bypass procedure. Retrograde endoscopy was successful in 33 of the patients (65%). There was significantly more gastritis by endoscopic grading(More)
The purposes of this study were to establish a standardized multiparameter analysis system for histologic grading of gastritis and to compare histologic changes with endoscopic findings in the proximal and distal bypassed stomach in obese patients undergoing gastric bypass surgery. Three groups, comprising a total of 91 patients, were studied: a(More)
Retrograde duodenogastroscopy solves the problem of postoperative evaluation of the gastric bypass patient. The stomach may be bypassed to treat morbid obesity, but it no longer need be inaccessible. Endoscopic gastritis is rare in the proximal gastric pouch but common in the distal gastric segment and may be related to the presence of bile. Although the(More)
BACKGROUND This investigation was aimed at examining whether subjects who wear a combination of functional foot orthoses and dental appliances have less postural sway and furthermore to study if these changes are direction dependent. METHODS Centre of pressure (CoP) displacement in seven subjects, mean age 49 range (39-58) who met the inclusion criteria(More)
