Abstract [en]

Background

The number of gastric bypass operations being preformed is increasing rapidly due to good weight loss and alleviation of co-morbidities in combination with low mortality and morbidity. Stomal ulcers are, however, a clinical problem after gastric bypass, giving patients discomfort, risk of bleeding or even perforation. To measure the acidity in the proximal jejunum, we adopted the wire-less pH-metry (BRAVO-system) developed for evaluating reflux esophagitis.

Methods

25 patients (4 men, median age 44 years, BMI 29.3) who had undergone RYGBP 4 years earlier were recruited. Twenty-one asymptomatic, non-PPI users and in addition, four symtomatic patients (ongoing or stopped PPI-treatment) were studied. The wire-less BRAVO-capsule was positioned at the level of the gastrojejunal anastomosis under visual control with the endoscope. pH was registered for up to 48 hours. Time with pH<4 was calculated. Two patients were studied with two capsules.

Results

Of the 25 recruited patients capsule placement was successful in all but 2 patients, and in 3 patients a constant neutral environment was seen before a premature loss of signal, indicating early loss of position, thus 20 successful measurements were made. The mean time of registration was 25.7 hours (6.1-47.4, n=20). In the 16 asymtomatic patients, median percentage of time with pH<4 at the gastrojejunostomy was 10.6% (range 0.4 -37.7%). When dividing the registration time in day (08.00-22.00) and night (22.00-06.00), the median percentage of time with pH<4 was 8.4 and 6.3, respectively, (p=0.08). The two double measurements gave similar results indicating consistency. No complications occurred.

Conclusion

Wire-less pH-measurements in the proximal jejunum after gastric bypass are feasible and safe. The acidity was significant (10.5% of the registration time) even in asymptomatic patients with small gastric pouches. The described method could be useful in evaluation of epigastralgia after gastric bypass and in appraisal of PPI treatment of stomal ulcer.

Abstract [en]

The number of operations for morbid obesity is rising fast. We have examined aspects of postoperative physiology and results after bariatric surgery.

The pH in the proximal pouch after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) was investigated with catheter-based and wire-less technique. Gastric emptying, PYY-levels in the fasting state and after a standardized meal was evaluated after biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (DS). A clinical trial was undertaken, comparing DS to RYGBP in patients with BMI>48. Main outcome variables were safety and long-term weight results as well as abdominal symptoms and laboratory results.

Patients with stomal ulcer had significantly lower pH in their proximal gastric pouch as compared to asymptomatic control subjects. Long-time pH measurements with the wire-less BRAVO-system were feasible and demonstrated pH<4 in median 10.5% of the time in asymptomatic post-RYGBP patients. After DS, the T50 of gastric emptying was 28±16 minutes. PYY-levels were higher after DS than in age-matched control subjects. BMI-reduction was greater after DS (24 BMI-units) than after RYGBP (17 BMI-units) in median 3.5 (2.0-5.3) years after surgery (p<0.001). Fasting glucose and HbA1c levels were lower one and three years after DS as compared to RYGBP. On the other hand, DS-patients reported having more diarrhea and malodorous flatus.

This thesis has resulted in deepened knowledge. Acid produced in the proximal pouch is an important pathogenetic factor in the development of stomal ulcer after RYGBP. However, symptom-free patients have an acidic environment in the proximal Roux-limb as well. After DS, gastric emptying is fast, but not instantaneous, and PYY-levels are high. DS results in superior weight reduction and better glucose control as compared to RYGBP in patients with BMI>48. We believe that DS has a place in surgical treatment of the super-obese, even though symptoms of diarrhea and malodorous flatus are more common after DS.
