BACKGROUND Although gastric bypass surgery accounts for 80% of bariatric surgery in the United States, only limited long-term data are available on mortality among patients who have undergone this procedure as compared with severely obese persons from a general population. METHODS In this retrospective cohort study, we determined the long-term mortality (from 1984 to 2002) among 9949 patients who had undergone gastric bypass surgery and 9628 severely obese persons who applied for driver's… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Association of Patient Age at Gastric Bypass Surgery With Long-term All-Cause and Cause-Specific Mortality.

Gastric bypass surgery was associated with improved long-term survival for all patients undergoing surgery at ages older than 35 years, with externally caused deaths only elevated in younger women.

Long-term results 11 years after primary gastric bypass in 384 patients.

45 Long-Term Mortality After Bariatric Surgery

Current data seem to clearly support that bariatric surgery significantly reduces obesity-related mortality.

Long-term mortality rates (>8-year) improve as compared to the general and obese population following bariatric surgery

Long-term mortality rate of patients undergoing bariatric surgery significantly improves as compared to the general population regardless of bariatric operation performed, and perioperative complications do not increase long- term mortality risk.

Cancer Incidence and Mortality After Gastric Bypass Surgery

Significant reduction in total cancer mortality in gastric bypass patients compared with severely obese controls was associated with decreased incidence, primarily among subjects with advanced cancers, supporting recommendations for reducing weight to lower cancer risk.

Long-term Prevention of Mortality in Morbid Obesity Through Bariatric Surgery. A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Trials Performed With Gastric Banding and Gastric Bypass

It is indicated that bariatric surgery reduces long-term mortality; risk reduction is smaller in large than in small studies; and both gastric banding and gastric by-pass reduce mortality with a greater effect of the latter on CV mortality.

Health benefits of gastric bypass surgery after 6 years.

Among severely obese patients, compared with nonsurgical control patients, the use of RYGB surgery was associated with higher rates of diabetes remission and lower risk of cardiovascular and other health outcomes over 6 years.

Overall and cause-specific mortality after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery: A nationwide cohort study.

Weight and Metabolic Outcomes 12 Years after Gastric Bypass

This study showed long‐term durability of weight loss and effective remission and prevention of type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia after Roux‐en‐Y gastric bypass.

Bariatric Surgery is Associated with a Reduced Risk of Mortality in Morbidly Obese Patients with a History of Major Cardiovascular Events

In patients with a history of cardiovascular events, bariatric surgery is associated with a significantly decreased risk of all-cause mortality, and the relative risk of mortality was reduced by 40 per cent in bariatric patients compared with controls.



Impact of gastric bypass operation on survival: a population-based analysis.

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.

Natural history of morbid obesity without surgical intervention.

Effects of bariatric surgery on mortality in Swedish obese subjects.

Bariatric surgery for severe obesity is associated with long-term weight loss and decreased overall mortality.

Factors Influencing Survival following Surgical Treatment of Obesity

Simple and complex operations were equally effective in keeping patients alive in this cohort of patients operated on for severe obesity from 1986 to 1999, and longer follow-up for death is needed before any recommendations can be made for operation category based on survival.

Lifestyle, diabetes, and cardiovascular risk factors 10 years after bariatric surgery

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.
