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… Expand

Association of Patient Age at Gastric Bypass Surgery With Long-term All-Cause and Cause-Specific Mortality.
TLDR
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. Expand
Mortality rate after open Roux-in-Y gastric bypass: a 10-year follow-up
TLDR
The overall risk of death after bariatric surgery was quite low, and half of the deaths were related to the surgery, while older patients and superobese patients were at greater risk of surgery-related deaths, as were patients operated on by less experienced surgeons. Expand
Long-term results 11 years after primary gastric bypass in 384 patients.
TLDR
Surprisingly few patients were compliant with the recommendation of lifelong supplements and yearly evaluations; however, patient satisfaction was high and substantial weight loss was maintained and revisional surgery was rare. Expand
45 Long-Term Mortality After Bariatric Surgery
TLDR
Current data seem to clearly support that bariatric surgery significantly reduces obesity-related mortality. Expand
Long-term mortality rates (>8-year) improve as compared to the general and obese population following bariatric surgery
TLDR
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. Expand
Cancer Incidence and Mortality After Gastric Bypass Surgery
TLDR
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. Expand
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
TLDR
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. Expand
Health benefits of gastric bypass surgery after 6 years.
TLDR
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. Expand
Overall and cause-specific mortality after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery: A nationwide cohort study.
TLDR
Perioperative mortality after RYGB is low in Denmark, and subsequent all-cause mortality is similar to that of matched comparisons, and patients have substantially increased mortality due to external causes such as suicide, accidents, and possibly hypoglycemia. Expand
Weight and Metabolic Outcomes 12 Years after Gastric Bypass
TLDR
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. 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
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
The gastric bypass operation reduces the progression and mortality of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus
Of 232 morbidly obese patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus referred to East Carolina University between March 5, 1979, and January 1, 1994, 154 had a Roux-en-Y gastric bypassExpand
Natural history of morbid obesity without surgical intervention.
TLDR
Mortality among morbidly obese patients without surgery was 14.3% during the study period, and surgical intervention offered a 50%-85% mortality reduction benefit. Expand
Effects of bariatric surgery on mortality in Swedish obese subjects.
TLDR
Bariatric surgery for severe obesity is associated with long-term weight loss and decreased overall mortality. Expand
Long-term outcome of bariatric surgery: an interim analysis.
TLDR
Evidence from available studies indicates that bariatric surgery is cost-effective, and a wide range of other weight-related conditions also appear to improve, and limited data suggest that overall mortality may decrease in patients undergoingbariatric surgery. Expand
National trends in utilization and in-hospital outcomes of bariatric surgery
TLDR
Between 1990 and 1997, the annual rate of bariatric surgery in the United States more than doubled, without substantial changes in perioperative morbidity or mortality, largely associated with an increase in the use of gastric bypass procedures. Expand
Factors Influencing Survival following Surgical Treatment of Obesity
TLDR
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. 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
Bariatric Surgery: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
Effective weight loss was achieved in morbidly obese patients after undergoing bariatric surgery, and a substantial majority of patients with diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and obstructive sleep apnea experienced complete resolution or improvement. Expand
