Abstract:

Osteoporosis, a state of decreased bone mineral density, is a well-known entity. Similarly sarcopenia a condition where there is significant loss of muscle associated with ageing is also well documented. Osteosarcopenia1 where there is co-existence of the above two mentioned chronic musculoskeletal conditions, associated with ageing is a recently described clinical entity. Both these conditions share common risk factors and biological pathways. They lead to greater risk of falls, fractures, institutionalisation and significant socioeconomic costs. With an increasing elderly population, osteosarcopenia is a community healthy issue that will become increasingly relevant in the future.

Abstract:

Postsurgical complications after sleeve gastrectomy can be divided into early and delayed. Haemorrhage is considered to be one of the most common early complications after sleeve gastrectomy [1]. Incidence of hemorrhage post LSG has been reported in 1.1–8.7% of cases[5]. Sleeve gastrectomy is still relatively new and a thorough literature review does not produce any meaningful reviews on hemorrhage. It seems that hemorrhage is actually quite rare and may reflect the fact that most surgeons performing this procedure and publishing on it are already very experienced with gastric bypass surgery and are well past the learning curve for bleeding prevention. The authors present their experience of the common site of bleeding during LSG and the ways to limit them.
