Obesity is a chronic, relapsing disease representing a global epidemic. To date, bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for morbid obesity in the long-term. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is one of the most performed bariatric interventions, with excellent long-term outcomes. However, about one-third of patients may experience weight regain over time, as well as dumping syndrome. Both these conditions are challenging to manage and require a multidisciplinary and personalized approach. The dilation of the gastro-jejunal anastomosis is a recognized etiological factor for both weight regain and dumping syndrome. Dietary modifications, behavioral interventions, and medications represent the first therapeutic step. Revisional surgery is the traditional approach when non-invasive treatments fail. However, re-interventions may be technically difficult and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Transoral outlet reduction (TORe) is an endoscopic procedure aimed at reducing the size of the anastomosis and is proposed as a minimally invasive treatment of weight regain and/or dumping syndrome refractory to conservative therapies. This review is aimed at providing a narrative overview of the role of TORe as part of the multidisciplinary therapeutic toolkit nowadays available to approach weight regain and dumping syndrome after RYGB.

Abstract

Obesity is a chronic, relapsing disease representing a global epidemic. To date, bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for morbid obesity in the long-term. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is one of the most performed bariatric interventions, with excellent long-term outcomes. However, about one-third of patients may experience weight regain over time, as well as dumping syndrome. Both these conditions are challenging to manage and require a multidisciplinary and personalized approach. The dilation of the gastro-jejunal anastomosis is a recognized etiological factor for both weight regain and dumping syndrome. Dietary modifications, behavioral interventions, and medications represent the first therapeutic step. Revisional surgery is the traditional approach when non-invasive treatments fail. However, re-interventions may be technically difficult and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Transoral outlet reduction (TORe) is an endoscopic procedure aimed at reducing the size of the anastomosis and is proposed as a minimally invasive treatment of weight regain and/or dumping syndrome refractory to conservative therapies. This review is aimed at providing a narrative overview of the role of TORe as part of the multidisciplinary therapeutic toolkit nowadays available to approach weight regain and dumping syndrome after RYGB.
