As the prevalence of obesity continues to rise in society, an increasing number of patients undergoing non‐bariatric surgery will be obese. Obesity is known to increase morbidity and mortality in the general population and thus is perceived as a risk factor for adverse post‐surgical outcomes. This association is not clear‐cut, however, and there is a lack of consensus in the literature on the risk between obesity and specific complications, in particular relating to infection, wound healing… Expand
Obesity and postgastrectomy outcomes: large risks, fat chances, or no big deal?
TLDR
The authors conclude that excessive visceral fat as represented by VFA is an independent risk factor for these untoward events, and that greater diligence is required in patients undergoing curative-intent gastrectomy. Expand
The Role of Infection-Associated Risk Factors in Prosthetic Surgery
  • E. Witsø
  • Medicine
  • Hip international : the journal of clinical and experimental research on hip pathology and therapy
  • 2012
TLDR
The obese patient with DM should be considered a high risk patient for postoperative infection in all types of surgery, and efforts should be made to identify patients with a metabolic syndrome prior to prosthetic surgery. Expand
Obesity and perioperative acute kidney injury: a focused review.
TLDR
The epidemiologic and pathophysiologic aspects of obesity, especially with respect to structural and functional changes in kidney function and their impact on perioperative outcomes are reviewed. Expand
Obesity and Surgical Wound Healing: A Current Review
TLDR
Improved knowledge and understanding of obesity-induced physiological, cellular, molecular, and chemical changes will facilitate better assessments of surgical risks and outcomes and create efficient treatment protocols for improved patient care of the obese patient population. Expand
Influence of obesity on complications and costs after intestinal surgery.
TLDR
Obesity leads to increased wound and respiratory complications in intestinal surgery, and after controlling for patient risk factors and variation in costs attributable to the admitting hospital, there were no significant cost differences between the 4 BMI categories. Expand
The impact of obesity and morbid obesity on urgent/emergency colorectal resections: a regional database analysis
TLDR
Obesity is a risk factor difficult to modify prior to urgent/emergency surgery and managing complications related to obesity after colorectal surgery will be a continued challenge with projected increasing obesity rates. Expand
Bariatric Surgery and Crohn’s Disease
TLDR
Bariatric surgery infers marked improvement in weight-associated comorbidities, massive weight loss, as well as better quality of life, in this special patient population. Expand
Obesity as a risk factor of in-hospital outcomes in patients with endometrial cancer treated with traditional surgical mode.
TLDR
Waist circumference and BMI are strong predictors of in-hospital outcomes among patients with endometrial cancer treated via traditional surgical operation and are linked with haemoglobin loss. Expand
Extending the Limits of Microsurgical Reconstruction in Patients with Moderate to Very Severe Obesity: Single‐Center 6‐Year Experiences
TLDR
It is suggested that despite higher rates of patient comorbidities, successful free tissue transfer can be achieved in this population with acceptable risk for complications. Expand
Ventral hernia repair in bariatric patients
TLDR
The impact of obesity on the natural history of hernia, its associated complication, management strategies and outcome is reviewed. Expand

The obese surgical patient: a susceptible host for infection.
TLDR
The growing prevalence of obesity and the increasing number of operations performed on obese patients, whether to achieve weight loss or for other purposes, will have a substantial impact on health care resources. Expand
Obesity and Risk of Adverse Outcomes Associated With Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
TLDR
Adverse outcomes occurring in-hospital, including mortality, intraoperative/postoperative cerebrovascular accident (CVA), postoperative bleeding, and sternal wound infection, were defined prospectively. Expand
Obesity is not a risk factor for significant adverse outcomes after cardiac surgery.
TLDR
The results indicate that obese patients may safely undergo cardiac surgery with due attention to technical considerations designed to minimize wound complications and obesity is not a significant multivariate risk factor for adverse outcomes. Expand
The effect of obesity on outcomes among injured patients.
TLDR
Obese patients are significantly more likely than lean patients to experience complications and death after a traumatic event and this effect is enhanced with higher levels of injury. Expand
Impact of obesity on outcomes in the management of localized adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and esophagogastric junction.
TLDR
Obesity was associated with increased respiratory complications and anastomotic leak rates but not with major respiratory complications, mortality, or survival, and these outcomes suggest that the added risks of obesity on standard outcomes in esophageal cancer surgery are modest and should not independently have a significant impact on risk assessment in esophileal cancer management. Expand
Impact of obesity on surgical outcomes after colorectal resection.
TLDR
The study suggested that, for obese patients, right colectomy can be performed in the same manner as for nonobese patients and after proctectomy, a defunctioning stoma should be recommended when diabetes mellitus or ASA status >2 is present, and an autologous blood transfusion could be discussed for patients >60 years old or with ASA status <2.

Body mass index as a predictor of complications after operative treatment of acetabular fractures.
TLDR
Body mass index is predictive of complications after operative treatment of acetabular fractures and obese subjects (body mass index of > or =30) were 2.1 times more likely than patients of normal weight to have an estimated blood loss and 2.6 timesMore likely to have a deep venous thrombosis.

The effect of obesity on mid-term survival following coronary artery bypass surgery.
TLDR
Although in-hospital mortality after CABG does not seem to be adversely affected by obesity there appears to be a significant increase in mortality in obese patients during a 4-year follow-up period. Expand
Metabolic syndrome increases operative mortality in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting surgery.
TLDR
This is the first study to report that MS is a highly prevalent and powerful risk factor for operative mortality in patients undergoing a CABG surgery and interventions that could contribute to reduce the prevalence of MS in patients with coronary artery disease or that could acutely modify the metabolic perturbations of MS at the time of CABGs might substantially improve survival in these patients.

The influence of obesity on perioperative morbidity: retrospective study of 502 aortocoronary bypass operations.
TLDR
Obesity was demonstrated to be an independent risk factor for perioperative complications, hospital morbidity, and length of hospitalization in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Expand
