Bariatric surgery and cardiovascular outcomes: a systematic review

This systematic review highlights the benefits of bariatric surgery in reducing risk factors for CV disease and demonstrates statistically significant improvements in left ventricular mass, E/A ratio, and isovolumic relaxation time postoperatively.

Bariatric Surgery: A Systematic Review of the Clinical and Economic Evidence

Contemporary bariatric surgery appears to result in sustained weight reduction with acceptable costs but rigorous, longer-term data are needed and a paucity of RCT data on mortality and obesity related comorbidity is evident.

Bariatric Surgery Is Effective and Safe in Patients Over 55: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Patients should not be denied bariatric surgery on the basis of age alone after a systematic review and meta-analysis of the published evidence for those in the ≥55-year age group.

Effect of bariatric surgery on oncologic outcomes: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Bariatric surgery reduces cancer risk and mortality in formerly obese patients and when stratifying the meta-analysis by gender, the effect of bariatric surgery on oncologic outcomes is protective in women but not in men.

Assessment of Bariatric Surgery Patients in Lebanon: A Cross-Sectional Observational Study

Sleeve gastrectomy was the most common bariatric surgery done in Lebanon and associated with the most postoperative weight loss, and vitamin and mineral supplements and PPIs were consumed by almost half of the patients.

Is Bariatric Surgery Effective in Reducing Comorbidities and Drug Costs? A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

BS is effective for the improvement or resolution of comorbidities and significantly reduces drug use and costs and significantly reduced drug costs over a follow-up duration of 6–72 months.

The effectiveness and risks of bariatric surgery: an updated systematic review and meta-analysis, 2003-2012.

Bariatric surgery provides substantial and sustained effects on weight loss and ameliorates obesity-attributable comorbidities in the majority of bariatric patients, although risks of complication, reoperation, and death exist.

[Anesthesia for bariatric surgery: retrospective evaluation and literature review].

It has been observed that several aspects of anesthesia for obese patients are already defined as beneficial or noxious; however, several subjects are still undefined and should be discussed and studied to constantly improve the anesthetic management of such patients.

Editors’ Comment: Bariatrics and Diabetes Meta-Analysis

There should be little doubt that today metabolic/ bariatric surgery is the most effective and lasting means of treating type 2 diabetes in the morbidly obese, and, possibly, in patients with a BMI ≤35 kg/m.



Bariatric Surgery for Morbid Obesity

BMI reduction following bariatric surgery is appropriate for obese patients in whom non-surgical treatment options were unsuccessful and is associated with improvements in risk factors for cardiac disease including hypertension, type 2 diabetes and lipid abnormalities, and may decrease the severity of obstructive sleep apnea.

Gastric Surgery for Morbid Obesity: The Adelaide Study

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is the preferred procedure for the surgical treatment of morbid obesity in a prospective randomized study of 310 morbidly obese subjects.

Surgery decreases long-term mortality, morbidity, and health care use in morbidly obese patients.

Concerns are raised about the characteristics of the matched-control subjects and the methods used for matching that generate concern for the possibility of uncontrolled confounding either by comorbidity or by socioeconomic status.

Evolution of Operative Procedures for the Management of Morbid Obesity 1950-2000

This chronology of the landmark operations in bariatric surgery is based on a review of the medical literature and is incumbent on all physicians to be familiar with current bariatric operations, and to understand the evolution ofbariatric surgery.

Etiology of Type II Diabetes Mellitus: Role of the Foregut

These results, the best therapeutic outcomes for type II diabetes ever reported, suggest that the disease is not an untreatable, hopeless illness but one that can be treated successfully with better understanding of the pathophysiology of these surgical remissions.

Reduction in incidence of diabetes, hypertension and lipid disturbances after intentional weight loss induced by bariatric surgery: the SOS Intervention Study.

Intentional weight loss in the obese causes a marked reduction in the 2-year incidence of hypertension, diabetes and some lipid disturbances, and the results suggest that severe obesity can and should be treated.

Results of surgery: long-term effects on hyperlipidemia.

  • 1992
In comparing lipid profiles of gastric surgery through 5 y with recent data from the surgical arm of the Program on Surgical Control of the Hyperlipidemias (POSCH), postulates are made of anticipated reduction in morbid, and even fatal, cardiac events in the operated morbidly obese population.

A new paradigm for type 2 diabetes mellitus: could it be a disease of the foregut?

Findings suggest that the current paradigms of type 2 diabetes mellitus deserve review, and that the critical lesion may lie in abnormal signals from the gut.

Effect of partial ileal bypass surgery on mortality and morbidity from coronary heart disease in patients with hypercholesterolemia. Report of the Program on the Surgical Control of the Hyperlipidemias (POSCH)

Significant evidence is provided supporting the beneficial effects of lipid modification in the reduction of atherosclerosis progression and sustained improvement in the blood lipid patterns of patients who have had a myocardial infarction and reduces their subsequent morbidity due to coronary heart disease.
