Abstract

Background Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has be- troscopies, and questionnaires focusing on reflux (GIQLI, come the most frequently performed bariatric procedure RSI) in SG patients with a follow-up of more than 10 years worldwide. De novo reflux might impact patients’ quality of who did not suffer from symptomatic reflux or hiatal hernia life, requiring lifelong proton pump inhibitor medication. It preoperatively. also increases the risk of esophagitis and formation of Results From a total of 53 patients, ten patients after adjust- able gastric banding were excluded. From the remaining 43, Barrett’s metaplasia. Besides weight regain, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is the most common reason for con- six patients (14.0%) were converted to RYGB due to intrac- table reflux over a period of 130 months. Ten out of the re- version to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. maining non-converted patients (n = 26) also suffered from symptomatic reflux. Gastroscopies revealed de novo hiatal * Gerhard Prager hernias in 45% of the patients and Barrett’s metaplasia in gerhard.prager@meduniwien.ac.at 15%. SG patients suffering from symptomatic reflux scored significantly higher in the RSI (p = 0.04) and significantly Daniel Moritz Felsenreich moritz.felsenreich@meduniwien.ac.at lower in the GIQLI (p = 0.02) questionnaire.
