    Background: Levofloxacin is a commonly prescribed antimicrobial where recommendations exist to reduce doses for renal impairment but not to increase doses for augmented renal function. Morbidly obese patients are increasing in prevalence, and represent a population that can have augmented renal...

    Twenty-six per cent of adults in the Unites States are obese and trauma remains a major cause of death. We assessed the impact of morbid obesity on mortality in patients with blunt trauma. We reviewed the records of patients with a body mass index 40 kg/m² or greater injured by blunt trauma...

    Background and Objectives: In a previous article, we showed that the pharmacokinetic set of remifentanil used for target-controlled infusion (TCI) might be biased in obese patients because it incorporates flawed equations for the calculation of lean body mass (LBM), which is a covariate of...

    Background: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) represents a valid option for morbidly obese patients, either as a primary or as a staged procedure. Staple-line reinforcement (SLR) is strongly advocated to decrease the chance of bleeding. The aim of this article is to report our experience...

    Background: Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) may be a technically challenging surgical technique when features such as thick abdominal wall and increased liver volume are present. Very low calorie diets in the form of liquid meal replacements given 6 weeks prior to surgery have...
