Factors associated with preoperative attrition in bariatric surgery: a protocol for a systematic review

DiscussionPresently, there are studies and reviews investigating population-based utilisation and access to bariatric surgery; however, there is a need to review the reasons behind preoperative bariatric surgery patient attrition once selected for bariatric surgery. The results of the review will highlight potential systematic disparities in patient attrition, where gaps in knowledge remain for further investigation, and suggest areas where countermeasures may be focussed for decreasing attrition rates.Systematic review registrationPROSPEROCRD42017068557
