Cardiorespiratory function and VO2 kinetics after sleeve gastrectomy: a follow-up analysis
It can be concluded that LSG improved peak work capacity along with a lower maximal absolute aerobic capacity, which might be due to a loss of muscle mass and potentially impaired peripheral oxidative muscle metabolism, however, VO2 kinetics might suggest an initial restoration of peripheral oxidative Muscle capacity after a longer follow-up.
