Management for Failed Bariatric Procedures: Surgical Strategies



Series: Surgery – Procedures, Complications, and Results
BISAC: MED111000

The book Management for Failed Bariatric Procedures: Surgical Strategies covers the full spectrum of revisional laparoscopic weight loss surgery after a failed primary procedure. The chapter authors, all currently operating experts in this field, cover the essentials of establishing a bariatric revisional surgery program, including diagnostic issues, metabolic failures, malabsorptive failures before considering technical options, guidelines for avoiding pitfalls, and a strict patient selection.

The operative chapters discuss in full detail the surgical techniques and outcomes during revisional bariatric surgery, including laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, laparoscopic Roux-en-Y, mini gastric bypass, and laparoscopic malabsorption procedures (BPD-DS). The text also tackles post-operative issues in these specific groups of patients, such as complications, reoperation and nutritional issues.
