ABSTRACT Aim: Bariatric surgery is becoming an acceptable option for treatment of obesity worldwide, but there is no systemic review and meta-analysis focusing on obese patients in China. This study is to quantify the overall effects of bariatric surgery for Chinese obesity using up-to-date, comprehensive data. Methods: We systematically searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, ISI Web of Science, and CNKI databases in English and Chinese. The weighted mean difference (MD) and 95% confidence… 

Optimizing Bariatric Surgery outcomes: the impact of preoperative elevated hemoglobin A1c levels on composite perioperative outcome measures

Elevated HbA1c levels and presence of trainees in the OR are modifiable preoperative risk factors for adverse events following bariatric surgery, and improving preoperative glycemic control may be an effective and achievable quality improvement measure.

Five‐year effectiveness of bariatric surgery on disease remission, weight loss, and changes of metabolic parameters in obese patients with type 2 diabetes: A population‐based propensity score‐matched cohort study

To compare disease remission rates, weight loss, and changes of metabolic parameters of patients after bariatric surgery with nonsurgical patients, a large number of patients have had either bariatric or nonsurgical surgery.

Elevated CTSL Gene Expression Correlated with Proinflammatory Cytokines in Omental Adipose Tissue of Patients with Obesity

CTSL, but not CTSB, was positively correlated with proinflammatory cytokines independently, suggesting that the dysregulation of CTSL may play a significant role in the inflammatory process.



The effectiveness and risks of bariatric surgery: an updated systematic review and meta-analysis, 2003-2012.

Bariatric surgery provides substantial and sustained effects on weight loss and ameliorates obesity-attributable comorbidities in the majority of bariatric patients, although risks of complication, reoperation, and death exist.

Bariatric surgery versus non-surgical treatment for obesity: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials

Compared with non-surgical treatment of obesity, bariatric surgery leads to greater body weight loss and higher remission rates of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome and greater improvements in quality of life and reductions in medicine use.

Early Impact of Bariatric Surgery on Type II Diabetes, Hypertension, and Hyperlipidemia: A Systematic Review, Meta-Analysis and Meta-Regression on 6,587 Patients

The present study showed that laparoscopic bariatric surgery is an effective therapeutic option to reduce the cardiovascular risk in severe obese patients and an inverse relation between cardiovascular risks and BMI reduction.

Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass for the Treatment of Type II Diabetes Mellitus in Chinese Patients with Body Mass Index of 25–35

Early intervention in low-BMI patients yields better remission rates because age, BMI, and duration of T2DM predict glycemic outcomes.

Bariatric Surgery: Asia-Pacific Perspective

Bariatric surgery is expanding rapidly in Asia to meet rapidly increasing obesity and the modification of the indications for bariatric surgery in the Asian is proposed.

Early clinical efficacy of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy as a bariatric surgery for obese patients: a uni-center report in China.

Laroscopic sleeve gastrectomy as a bariatric surgery is a safe and feasible procedure for obesity with excellent short-term effects and more studies with a long-term follow-up are needed to validate its benefits.

Improvement of Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease After Bariatric Surgery in Morbidly Obese Chinese Patients

Bariatric surgery can achieve a dramatic improvement of NAFLD both biochemically and histologically in morbidly obese Chinese patients.

Recent advances in bariatric/metabolic surgery: appraisal of clinical evidence

It is demonstrated that gut hormone, microbiota and bile acid changes after bariatric surgery may play an important role in durable weight loss as well as in T2DM remission, however, weight loss is still the cornerstone of T2 DM remission after metabolic surgery.

Early Results of the Swiss Multicentre Bypass or Sleeve Study (SM-BOSS)

LSG was associated with shorter operation time and a trend toward fewer complications than with LRYGB, and both procedures were almost equally efficient regarding weight loss, improvement of comorbidities, and quality of life 1 year after surgery.
