Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty in the management of weight regain after sleeve gastrectomy

by Diogo Turian Hourneaux de Moura, Sergio Jr. Barrichello, Eduardo Guimarães Hourneaux de Moura et al.

Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) was performed following weight regain after sleeve gastrectomy in 34 patients. Technical success was 100%, and 82% of patients achieved 10% total weight loss at 1 year. The 1-year outcomes of this study support the use of ESG for management of weight regain after sleeve gastrectomy.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided drainage of pancreatic walled-off necrosis using 20-mm versus 15-mm lumen-apposing metal stents: an international, multicenter, case-matched study

by Nasim Parsa, Jose M. Nieto, Patrick Powers et al.

A total of 102 patients (cases) with symptomatic walled-off necrosis (WON) who underwent endoscopic ultrasoundguided drainage with a new 20-mm lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) were matched with 204 patients having drainage with 15-mm LAMS (controls). Both stents showed comparable clinical success and safety profiles, but patients with 20-mm LAMS required fewer direct endoscopic necrosectomy sessions for WON resolution, despite having larger WON collections.

How to identify patients who are less likely to have metachronous neoplasms after a colon cancer: a predictive model

by Leonardo Frazzoni, Liboria Laterza, Alessandro Mussetto et al.

Multicenter, retrospective study including patients who had undergone surgery for colon cancer. Patients with prior leftsided colon cancer or ≥1 advanced adenoma at index colonoscopy or ≥1 adenoma at the first surveillance colonoscopy have a significantly higher risk of neoplasms at the second surveillance colonoscopy, whereas patients without such factors have much lower risk and could safely skip the second surveillance colonoscopy.
