CALENDAR OF EVENTS ................32 MARKETPLACE ...........................32 AD INDEX ....................................34 Page 10 THE HISTORY OF BARIATRIC SURGERY Jacques Himpens, MD, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Surgery at the European School of Laparoscopic Surgery and Chief of Bariatric Surgery at the CHIREC Hospital, Brussels, Belgium, and St. Blasius General Hospital, Dendermonde, Belgium. In 1977, he graduated cum laude from the Catholic University of Leuven, Leuven, Belgium. In 1992, after six years in private practice in Belgium, Dr. Himpens joined the Université Libre de Bruxelles. He became an attending surgeon at the St. Pierre University Hospital Brussels. He assisted Dr. Guy-Bernard Cadière with the world's first laparoscopic adjustable band gastroplasty in October 1992. On March 3, 1997, Dr. Himpens performed the world's first "robotic" laparoscopic cholecystectomy using an early robot system prototype. He performed the first laparoscopic gastric bypass in Belgium in 1999, and the first laparoscopic biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch in 2001. He has performed over 15,000 laparoscopic obesity procedures, many of them revisional. He has had over 150 articles published in peer-reviewed medical journals, authored a substantial number of chapters in surgical books, and co- edited four books on bariatric surgery. He is co-editor for Obesity Surgery and is a member of the editorial board of Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases.

Lee Meralgia Paresthetica in Patients with Obesity INTRODUCTION The lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) is a purely sensory nerve branch of the lumbar plexus to innervate the skin at the antero-lateral aspect of the thigh. Entrapment of this nerve often occurs at its pelvic exit site, where the nerve passes under the inguinal ligament just medially to the anterior iliac process and pierces the fascia lata. Compression at this location causes distinct dysesthesia in the distribution of that nerve. This condition has been termed Bernhardt-Roth syndrome for Martin Bernhardt (1844–1915), a German neuropathologist who first depicted this condition in 1878, 1 and Vladimir Karlovich Roth (1848–1916), a distinguished Russian neurologist who in 1895 named the syndrome meralgia paresthetica (MP) from the Greek words meros, meaning "limb," and algos, meaning "pain." 2,3 T h e M E D I C A L S T U D E N T N o t e b o o k by JACQUES HIMPENS, MD, PHD Watch the video online:
