Two bariatric procedures appeared equally effective in the treatment of morbid obesity and at reducing symptoms of GERD after one year of follow-up, according to research published in Bariatric Surgical Practice and Patient Care.
Mohamed Hassan Fahmy, MD, of the department of general surgery at Cairo University in Egypt, and colleagues wanted to compare Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) with mini-gastric bypass (MGB) to determine if there was any difference in postoperative GERD, as well as the safety and efficacy of the two procedures.
