Background There are several surgical approaches to treat obesity not cured with medical approaches. Each method has its advantages and complications. In here, we have conducted a study to evaluate complications of biliointestinal bypass surgery (BIBP). Methods A prospective study was conducted in a private hospital from 2002 to 2016. Those patients, not previously operated for morbid obesity, were eligible. Mean follow-up period was 89 months ( ± 54 months; range: 73-108 months). Main outcome measures were weight, BMI (body mass index), concentrations of blood lipids and glucose, liver transaminases, and obesity-related comorbidities and complications. Results Twenty-three consecutive patients with morbid obesity, including 16 women (69.7%) and seven men (31.3%) with mean age 38.47 ± 10 years (range: 26-57 years) underwent surgery. At the end of follow-up period, a mean BMI reduction of 12.2 kg/m 2 kg/m 2 ( p < 0.001)] was observed. An excess weight loss (EWL) of 63% ( ± 34) was achieved at the end of the study. Additionally, total cholesterol and triglyceride levels decreased postoperative significantly. The main long-term complications were flatulence (60%), borborygmus (47.8%), mal odorous stool (30.4%), and diarrhea (21.7%). Revision rate was 4.34%. There were no cases with irreversible hepatic injury, deaths due to the surgery, or progressive renal failure. Conclusion BIBP seems to be a safe, easily reversible, and one of valid therapeutic approaches in morbidly obese patients. BIBP has the potential to achieve durable weight loss and offers an improved quality of life.
- Effects of MK-467 hydrochloride and hyoscine butylbromide on cardiorespiratory and gastrointestinal changes induced by detomidine hydrochloride in horses. [Journal Article]Am J Vet Res 2018; 79(4):376-387AJ
- CONCLUSIONS: AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE MK-467 reversed or attenuated cardiovascular and gastrointestinal effects of detomidine without notable adverse effects or alterations in detomidine-induced sedation in horses. Further research is needed to determine whether these advantages are found in clinical patients and to assess whether the drug influences analgesic effects of detomidine.
- [Effects of auricular point sticking on plasma motilin in patients after gynecological laparoscopic operation under general anesthesia]. [Randomized Controlled Trial]Zhongguo Zhen Jiu 2017; 37(2):171-174ZZ
- CONCLUSIONS: The assist of auricular point sticking could reduce the occurrence of nausea-vomiting and accelerate the recovery of gastrointestinal function in gynecological laparoscopic operation under general anesthesia, which is likely to be related with the inhibition on excess secretion of MTL.
- Effects of cow's milk beta-casein variants on symptoms of milk intolerance in Chinese adults: a multicentre, randomised controlled study. [Randomized Controlled Trial]Nutr J 2017; 16(1):72NJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Milk containing A2 β-casein attenuated acute gastrointestinal symptoms of milk intolerance, while conventional milk containing A1 β-casein reduced lactase activity and increased gastrointestinal symptoms compared with milk containing A2 β-casein. Thus, milk-related gastrointestinal symptoms may result from the ingestion of A1 β-casein rather than lactose in some individuals.

Intestinal capillariasis, a fish-borne nematodiasis, is an important emerging zoonotic disease. Patients present clinical symptoms of borborygmus chronic diarrhea, intermittent abdominal pain, weight loss, and several degrees of painless lower-leg edema. Death may occur in cases of misdiagnosis and improper treatment. Diagnosis is difficult because of the atypical clinical symptoms and diagnostic confusion with diarrhea caused by gastrointestinal cancer, opportunistic infections in human immunodeficiency virus patients, and hyperthyroidism. In addition, parasite eggs are not always found in stool examination. Serology can provide a supportive diagnostic tool. We have produced a rapid and simple immunochromatographic test (ICT) kit for diagnosis of intestinal capillariasis by detection of diagnostic antibodies in human sera. Serum samples from healthy volunteers and patients with proven intestinal capillariasis and other parasitic diseases were evaluated with the Trichinella spiralis larval extract antigen absorbed ICT strips. The diagnostic sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values were 100, 96.6, 90.2, and 100%, respectively. The ICT kit is simple and rapid to use and can supplement stool examination in clinical diagnosis of intestinal capillariasis. The test can be completed in 15 min without a need for any sophisticated instruments or reagents.
