Impact of second-generation transoral incisionless fundoplication on atypical GERD symptoms: a systematic review and meta-analysisTransoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) using the EsophyX device (EndoGastric Solutions, Inc, Redmond, Wash, USA) is a minimally invasive endoscopic fundoplication technique. Our study aimed to assess the efficacy of TIF for atypical GERD symptoms in patients with chronic or refractory GERD.
Comparison of distal primary obesity surgery endolumenal techniques for the treatment of obesity (with videos)Distal primary obesity surgery endolumenal (POSE) procedures involve plication of the gastric body, sparing the fundus. We aim to assess the efficacy of distal POSE procedures and to compare plication techniques (single-helix vs double-helix approaches).
Endoscopic gastric plication for the treatment of weight regain after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (with video)Gastric plication involves inverting the stomach with tissue anchor placement to achieve serosa-to-serosa apposition. One potential application of gastric plication is the treatment of weight regain after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), a procedure also known as plication transoral outlet reduction (P-TORe). This study aims to assess technical feasibility, safety, and efficacy of P-TORe.
Endoscopic versus surgical gastrojejunal revision for weight regain in Roux-en-Y gastric bypass patients: 5-year safety and efficacy comparisonAn enlarged gastrojejunal anastomosis (GJA) is associated with weight regain after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and can be corrected with endoscopic or surgical revision; however, there has been no direct comparison between techniques. This study aims to compare serious adverse event (AE) rates and weight loss profiles between endoscopic and surgical revisional techniques over a 5-year period.
