BACKGROUND Obesity is associated with increased mortality. [...] Key Method At the time of the analysis (November 1, 2005), vital status was known for all but three subjects (follow-up rate, 99.9%). RESULTS The average weight change in control subjects was less than +/-2% during the period of up to 15 years during which weights were recorded. Maximum weight losses in the surgical subgroups were observed after 1 to 2 years: gastric bypass, 32%; vertical-banded gastroplasty, 25%; and banding, 20%.Expand
Bariatric surgery and reduction in morbidity and mortality: experiences from the SOS study
TLDR
Bariatric surgery for severe obesity is associated with long-term weight loss, improved risk factors and decreased overall mortality over an average of 10 years. Expand
Bariatric Surgery and Long-Term Mortality
TLDR
Two groups now address the effect of bariatric surgery on long-term mortality in obese patients prospectively, with findings that suggest that patients who lose weight live longer than those who do not. Expand
Effects of bariatric surgery on cancer incidence in obese patients in Sweden (Swedish Obese Subjects Study): a prospective, controlled intervention trial.
TLDR
Bariatric surgery was associated with reduced cancer incidence in obese women but not in obese men, and after exclusion of all cancer cases during the first 3 years of the intervention. Expand
Bariatric surgery and long-term cardiovascular events.
TLDR
Compared with usual care, bariatric surgery was associated with reduced number of cardiovascular deaths and lower incidence of cardiovascular events in obese adults. Expand
Feasibility of Bariatric Surgery as a Strategy for Secondary Prevention in Cardiovascular Disease: A Report from the Swedish Obese Subjects Trial
TLDR
Bariatric surgery appears to be a safe and feasible treatment to achieve long-term weight loss and improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, symptoms, and quality of life in obese subjects with ischemic heart disease. Expand
Bariatric surgery and prevention of type 2 diabetes in Swedish obese subjects.
TLDR
Bariatric surgery appears to be markedly more efficient than usual care in the prevention of type 2 diabetes in obese persons. Expand
Review of the key results from the Swedish Obese Subjects (SOS) trial – a prospective controlled intervention study of bariatric surgery
TLDR
Whereas high insulin and/or high glucose at baseline predicted favourable treatment effects, high baseline BMI did not, indicating that current selection criteria for bariatric surgery need to be revised. Expand
Surgical obesity treatment and the risk of heart failure.
TLDR
Compared with usual care, bariatric surgery was associated with reduced risk of heart failure among persons being treated for obesity and the risk ofheart failure appeared to decline in parallel with a greater degree of weight loss. Expand
Five-Year Outcomes in Bariatric Surgery Patients
TLDR
A positive long-term impact of bariatric surgery on patients’ health conditions, significant and sustained weight loss, and decrease in BMI, which were associated with a reduction of co-morbidities and risk factors for cardiovascular diseases are demonstrated. Expand
The incidence of albuminuria after bariatric surgery and usual care in swedish obese subjects (SOS): a prospective controlled intervention trial
TLDR
Bariatric surgery is associated with reduced incidence of albuminuria compared with usual obesity care, and this study aims to determine the long-term effect of bariatric surgery on the incidence ofalbuminuria. Expand

Lifestyle, diabetes, and cardiovascular risk factors 10 years after bariatric surgery.
TLDR
As compared with conventional therapy, bariatric surgery appears to be a viable option for the treatment of severe obesity, resulting in long-term weight loss, improved lifestyle, and, except for hypercholesterolemia, amelioration in risk factors that were elevated at baseline. Expand
Impact of gastric bypass operation on survival: a population-based analysis.
TLDR
Thirty-day mortality after gastric bypass is higher than previously reported and closely linked to surgeon inexperience, and a modest overall survival benefit was associated with the procedure but a marked survival advantage was noted for patients who survive to the first postoperative year. Expand

TLDR
Comparison of measurements with self-reported prevalence estimates revealed a considerable amount of previously undiagnosed hypertension and diabetes in the obese subjects, suggesting that the excess health risks associated with obesity may not be fully appreciated. Expand
Long-term mortality after gastric bypass surgery.
TLDR
Long-term total mortality after gastric bypass surgery was significantly reduced, particularly deaths from diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, however, the rate of death from causes other than disease was higher in the surgery group than in the control group. Expand

TLDR
There is no question that morbid obesity poses an increased risk to health and longevity, so it is only logical that substantial weight loss in this group of patients could be expected to improve both longevity and quality of life, provided that the treatment methods employed are free of serious side-effects.

TLDR
Studies lacking adequate control groups indicate that a sustained weight loss may induce a reduced mortality but results from controlled intervention studies are so far not available. Expand
Surgery decreases long-term mortality, morbidity, and health care use in morbidly obese patients.
TLDR
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. Expand

TLDR
Intentional weight loss was associated with substantial reductions in mortality in this observational study of overweight individuals with diabetes. Expand
