BACKGROUND To determine whether the medium-term outcome of secondary gastric bypass (SGB) after laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is comparable to the outcome of primary gastric bypass (PGB) in morbidly obese patients in terms of complications and weight loss. Controversy exists among bariatric surgeons regarding the choice of primary operation(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric bypass and gastric banding are widely used to treat morbid obesity and both procedures offer certain advantages. The indication for these two treatment options continue to be subject to debate. METHODS A single-center case-controlled matched-pair cohort study was performed. Fifty-three primary gastric bypass patients (GB) operated(More)
PURPOSE Impaired functional outcome is common after a low anterior resection (LAR). Pelvic floor rehabilitation (PFR) might improve functional outcome after a LAR. The aim of this systematic review is to evaluate the effectiveness of PFR in improving functional outcome. METHODS PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library were searched using the terms fecal(More)
PURPOSE To report the midterm results of endovascular recanalization of chronic long-segment (> 5 cm) occlusions of the inferior vena cava (IVC) with stent placement. METHODS Nine patients (5 men; median age 30 years, range 14-58) with disabling complaints for more than 6 months caused by IVC occlusions were treated by endovascular recanalization. Mean(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the results of the laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) procedure for morbid obesity. DESIGN. Retrospective, descriptive. METHOD From November 1, 1995 to May 31, 2005, laparoscopic adjustable banding surgery was performed in St. Antonius Hospital, Nieuwegein, the Netherlands, in 411 patients. Inclusion criteria were BMI > or(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a commonly performed bariatric procedure. LAGB is frequently complicated by slippage. Possible treatment for slippage is rebanding, but long-term effects are unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate whether rebanding after gastric band slippage is associated with weight loss failure. (More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluation of the results of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in morbid obesity. DESIGN Descriptive. METHODS All patients undergoing gastric bypass surgery in St. Antonius Hospital in Nieuwegein, the Netherlands, between 2002 and 2008 were analysed. Indications were a body mass index (BMI) >or= 40 kg/m2 or a BMI >or= 35 kg/m2 with severe co-morbidity.(More)
BACKGROUND Colorectal liver metastases (CRLMs) with biliary invasion can be treated with a combined liver and extrahepatic bile duct resection. The aim of this study was to analyze outcomes of this procedure in a case-cohort analysis and systematic review. METHODS Consecutive patients who underwent a major liver resection for CRLM between 2003 and 2013(More)
BACKGROUND Internal herniation following a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) operation is a complication whereby the small bowel herniates through to the newly formed peritoneal compartment. Medical history, physical examination and laboratory tests are often non-specific and could lead to misdiagnosis. CASE DESCRIPTION A 46-year-old male with(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate the results of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) in patients lost to follow-up. METHODS Patients lost to follow-up were identified from a consecutive cohort of 495 patients who underwent LAGB between November 1995 and September 2006. These patients were asked to return to follow-up and their(More)
