The gold standard of bariatric surgery is still the laparoscopic Roux en-Y gastric bypass. ( SKF chapter 24)

Barium esophagram as the gold standard for evaluating PEH ( SKF 286)

Endoscopic therapy as the gold standard in patients with high-grade dysplasia in Barrett esophagus. ( SKF 350)


  1. Solid phase gastric emptying test is the current gold standard for the diagnosis of gastroparesis
  2.  Gold standard for diagnosis of H. pylori is mucosal biopsy performed during upper endoscopy


  1. Gold standard in breast reconstruction with autogenous tissue is the transverse rectus abdominis ( saby 868) 
  2. Bilateral neck exploration (BNE) has long been the gold standard operation for PHPT ( Saby 931)

Gastrinoma diagnosis

Q) Gastrinoma false is (AIIMS GI 2020) 
a) Fasting sG 1000 g/ml
b) Duodenotomy should be done in all cases
c) Diarrhoea most common symptom
d) SRS can localize 80% cases

Ans  )  c -

Duodenotomy detects 25% to 30% of tumors not seen on preoperative imaging.

Gastrin  levels higher than 1000 pg/mL are strongly suggestive of gastrinoma, provided that the patient demonstrated increased gastric acid  secretion ( gastric secretion ph should be less than 2) 

Most common is abdominal pain ( 75%) In 10% to 20% of patients, diarrhea is the only symptom ( Saby page 954) 

SRS should be performed because almost all gastrinomas express somatostatin receptors.

Ans ) a

Points of esophagus caustic injuries

There is no proven benefit of starting steroids in early or intermediate phase of injury as there is no evidence to support prevention of stricture

  1. Endoscopy should be performed after initial stabilization
  2. Complete esophagus can be examined now with flexible endoscopes
  3. Available studies show no benefit of steroid use ( skf PAGE 521) 
  4. Cancer risk is 30% in injured and non injured portions
