  author={A. Wittgrove and G. W. Clark},
  journal={Obesity Surgery},
Background:The authors have performed the laparoscopic gastric bypass since 1993 and perform about one-half of bariatric cases laparoscopically. Since our initial report, several groups throughout the world have preformed the gastric bypass laparoscopically, with various modifications. Method: Prospectively, we followed and recorded the results of our laparoscopic patients. A detailed pre- and post-operative analysis of the patient's co-morbidities is performed as well as complete weight and… Expand

ConditionsBypass Complications, Obesity
Complications of the Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass: 1,040 Patients - What Have We Learned?
The laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for morbid obesity with a totally hand-sewn gastrojejunostomy can be safely performed by the bariatric surgeon with advanced laparoscopically skills in the community setting. Expand
Laparoscopic Swedish Adjustable Gastric Banding: 6-year Follow-up and Comparison to other Laparoscopic Bariatric Procedures
All laparoscopically performed bariatric procedures are very promising, and the great advantage of laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is that this operation is minimally invasive to the stomach, totally reversible and adjustable to the patients' needs. Expand
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass versus laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy: a case-control study and 3 years of follow-up.
LSG has become an acceptable primary bariatric procedure for obesity, with results comparable to LRYGB in this population, and the rate of diabetes remission was similar in both groups. Expand
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass
Laroscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is feasible, but it is a very complex operation with a long and steep learning curve, as reflected in the high number of major complications among the first 70 patients. Expand
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass: 10-year follow-up.
Ten-year follow-up results with laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass with hand-sewn gastrojejunal anastomosis in a group private practice show sustainable weight loss and resolution of co-morbidities, however, nutritional deficiencies presented sporadically over time and underscore the importance of routine testing. Expand
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass versus laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding: five years of follow-up.
A greater percentage of excess weight loss at 1 and 5 years was observed after LRYGB than LAGB, and the LAGB group had a >40% rate of surgical failure and a 24.1% reoperation rate at 5 years of follow-up. Expand
Outcome analysis of laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for morbid obesity
As this study showed, LRYGB achieves an excellent rate of weight loss and improvement in preoperative comorbidities with a minimal length of hospital stay and an acceptable complication rate. Expand
Open Roux-en-Y gastric bypass for the morbidly obese in the era of laparoscopy.
With the technical complexity of the laparoscopic technique, open RYGB should remain the current standard of care, in most centers, and the health improvement and complication rates are comparable to published series. Expand
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass with Manual Intracorporeal Anastomoses in 3D Laparoscopy: Operative Technique.
The combination between the by-pass ERAS protocol and the described technique reduces postoperative pain, and usually allows discharge of patients within 48 hours, and is cost-effective due to the use of continuous suture for the gastrojejunal and the jejunojejunal anastomoses instead of staplers. Expand
Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass – Evaluation of Three Different Techniques
Whichever technique is used to construct the gastrojejunostomy, LRYGBP is a safe, effective and technically feasible operation for morbidly obese patients. Expand


Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Roux-en-Y: Preliminary Report of Five Cases
The technique of laparoscopic gastric bypass, Roux-en-Y, has been developed, and performed in five patients, showing comparable weight loss, and reduced morbidity and disability. Expand
Who Would Have Thought It? An Operation Proves to Be the Most Effective Therapy for Adult‐Onset Diabetes Mellitus
The gastric bypass operation provides long-term control of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and antidiabetic effects appear to be due primarily to a reduction in caloric intake, suggesting that insulin resistance is a secondary protective effect rather than the initial lesion. Expand
Weight loss with vertical banded gastroplasty and Roux-Y gastric bypass for morbid obesity with selective versus random assignment.
With selective assignment, the percentage excess weight lost with gastric bypass was still better than that with vertical banded gastroplasty but at the expense of more complications. Expand
Why the Operation We Prefer is the Roux-Y Gastric Bypass
Roux-Y gastric bypass with transection in an anterioposterior oblique fashion and an 11-12 mm internal diameter gastrojejunostomy supported by an external strip of linea alba fascia is safe andExpand
The effect of gastric bypass surgery on hypertension in morbidly obese patients.
It is concluded that postoperative weight loss in patients undergoing gastric bypass surgery was associated with resolution or improvement of diastolic hypertension in approximately 70% of cases. Expand
The role of gastric surgery in the multidisciplinary management of severe obesity.
The significant long-term weight control resulting from the surgical therapy is associated with improvement and, often, resolution of comorbidities, including diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and pulmonary insufficiency. Expand
Laparoscopic surgery and the systemic immune response.
The systemic immune responses for surgery in general may not apply to laparoscopic surgery, and the body's response to Laparoscopy is one of lesser immune activation as opposed to immunosuppression. Expand
