Although poor cardiorespiratory function is a powerful predictor of mortality in patients with obesity, functional evaluation has been given little attention after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). The aim of this study was thus to investigate the impact of LSG on functional capacity analysing a shorter and longer post-surgical follow-up. In this observational study, 24 patients with severe obesity (BMI 44.04 ± 5.84 kg/m2, age 47.0 ± 9.0 years) performed cardiopulmonary exercise testing 7… 
Ventilatory Response at Rest and During Maximal Exercise Testing in Patients with Severe Obesity Before and After Sleeve Gastrectomy
The weight loss induced by SG led to less burdensome restrictive limitations of the respiratory system and to a reduction of ventilation at rest and during exercise, possibly explained by an increased ventilatory efficiency and a decrease in oxygen demands.
A clinical evaluation of VO2 kinetics in kidney transplant recipients
VO2 kinetics were significantly associated with indices of cardiorespiratory fitness, but less with central determinants of aerobic capacity, thus suggesting a potential usefulness of adding this index of muscular oxidative metabolism to functional evaluation in KTRs.
Effects of bariatric surgery on cardiorespiratory fitness: A systematic review and meta‐analysis
Moderate‐quality evidence is provided that the weight loss induced by BS can reduce CRF in the short term, which represents a therapeutic target to optimize BS outcomes including normalized values for fat‐free mass.
Impact of exercise training and supplemental oxygen on submaximal exercise performance in patients with COPD
After 12 weeks of exercise training, patients improved in exercise tolerance, shown by decreased cardiocirculatory and metabolic effort at isotime; submaximal exercise capacity was improved at PWC 110, AT and the lactate‐2 mmol/L threshold, respectively.
How valuable is cardiopulmonary exercise testing in patients with severe obesity undergoing bariatric surgery?
Low levels of CRF and low levels of EC are associated with obesity, however there is a significant lack of knowledge about the changes in these outcomes in patients with obesity who undergo bariatric surgery, and attention should be directed at the numerous shortcomings in the available literature.
Overshoot of the Respiratory Exchange Ratio during Recovery from Maximal Exercise Testing in Kidney Transplant Recipients
This study is the first to investigate recovery of the RER in a population of KTRs, which correlates well with known prognostic CPET markers of cardiorespiratory fitness, determining the R ER mag as the most meaningful RER overshoot parameter.
Metabolic Response to Submaximal and Maximal Exercise in People with Severe Obesity, Prediabetes, and Diabetes
PwO demonstrate restricted metabolic response during maximal exercise, similarly to those with type 2 diabetes, and a potential role of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in detecting early metabolic alterations in PwO is suggested.
Is Bariatric Surgery a Way of Doping for Obese Subjects?
The present review aims to explore the question of the link between a dramatic weight reduction, typically observed after bariatric surgery, and the VO2peak, and an excessive reduction in muscle mass loss would lead to a functional deficit and/or affect absoluteVO2peak or the dyspnea threshold.
Bariatric Surgery in Adults with Obesity: the Impact on Performance, Metabolism, and Health Indices
It is suggested that BS induced significant reductions in body weight, fat mass, and fat-free mass in individuals with obesity and may improve many physical fitness and health indicators.


Functional Evaluation in Obese Patients Before and After Sleeve Gastrectomy
Pilot results from VO2-kinetics analysis seem to support the hypothesis of a deterioration of oxidative muscle metabolism after SG, which might in part be due to a loss of muscle mass, although patients’ muscle strength did not decrease.
Long-term Metabolic Effects of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
LSG significantly improves body weight, diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia in long-term follow-up and none of the patients cured from diabetes had a duration disease greater than 8 years and a glycemic control requiring insulin.
Modifications of Resting Energy Expenditure After Sleeve Gastrectomy
A significant reduction of resting energy expenditure and a significant degree of metabolic adaptation both occur after sleeve gastrectomy, suggesting a greater metabolic adaptation could be partly responsible for a lower weight loss after surgery.
Gas exchange kinetics in obese adolescents. Inferences on exercise tolerance and prescription.
The above findings should negatively affect exercise tolerance in obese adolescents and suggest an impairment of skeletal muscle oxidative metabolism.
Protein Intake, Body Composition, and Protein Status Following Bariatric Surgery
The value of protein supplementation for the achievement of the recommended daily protein intake in the bariatric patient is underscores, however, the data does not help to define a PI goal as critical in determining the FFM and protein status changes following LGBP or LSG.
Impact of bariatric surgery on physical functioning in obese adults
Obesity is associated with a profound impairment in the ability to perform the basic physical activities required for everyday function. This impacts on quality of life and contributes to disability.
Exercise and Weight Loss Improve Muscle Mitochondrial Respiration, Lipid Partitioning, and Insulin Sensitivity After Gastric Bypass Surgery
Exercise superimposed on bariatric surgery–induced weight loss enhances mitochondrial respiration, induces cardiolipin remodeling, reduces specific sphingolipids, and provides additional improvements in insulin sensitivity.
Pulmonary function and energy expenditure after marked weight loss in obese women: observations before and one year after gastric banding.
The loss of weight led to increased filling of the lungs, improved dynamic function, reduced ventilation/perfusion disturbances and greater than expected reduction of energy expenditure, both at rest and exercise.
Bariatric and metabolic surgery: a shift in eligibility and success criteria
For a holistic approach that focuses on the multifactorial effects of bariatric and metabolic surgery to be possible, a paradigm shift that goes beyond the pure semantics is needed and could lead to profound clinical implications for eligibility criteria and the definition of success of the surgical approach.
