Exercise Following Bariatric Surgery: Systematic Review

Exercise following bariatric surgery appears to be associated with a greater weight loss of over 4% of BMI, and this finding supports the continued efforts to encourage and support patients’ involvement in post-surgery exercise.

Physical Therapy Management of Patients' Status Post–Bariatric Surgery in Acute Care: A Systematic Review

The strength of available evidence is not strong enough to draw conclusive clinical guidelines for the PTM of bariatric surgical patients in the ACS, and more research is needed with higher-level design on this subject.

Current Evidence for Physical Activity in the Bariatric Surgery Patient for Weight Loss Success

There are currently no large-scale, long-term randomized trials that have investigated a structured, well-controlled, physical activity intervention in post-surgical patients, and the current evidence in this realm is summarized.

Comparison of 12-Week Fitness Protocols Following Bariatric Surgery: Aerobic Exercise Versus Aerobic Exercise and Progressive Resistance

In a comparative 12-week post-bariatric surgery study, both aerobic exercise alone and aerobic exercise plus progressive-resistance training were positively correlated with general health improvement, however, the progressive-Resistance regimen resulted in significantly greater weight loss, functional capacity, muscle mass, and upper-body strength.

Factors Associated with DelayedWeight Reduction among Post Bariatric SurgeryPatients

It was concluded that, not all post bariatric surgery patients had the same successful outcomes due to several factors, and Educating patients undergoing bariatrics surgery about the factors which may hinder postoperative weight loss and raising their compliance with post surgical weight reduction care plans should be advocated.



Nutritional Deficiencies following Bariatric Surgery: What Have We Learned?

A review of the current literature and evidence of the most commonly deficient vitamins and minerals following weight loss surgery, including protein, iron, vitamin B12, folate, calcium, the fat-soluble vitamins, and other micronutrients are presented.
