CONCLUSION: Study heterogeneity accounted for the variability of the results from different centers and methodological flaws such as insufficient sample size and selection bias impaired the evidence on the magnitude of BED in surgical settings. For the sake of comparability and generalizability of the findings in future studies, researchers must recruit representative samples of treatment-seeking candidates for bariatric surgery and systematically apply standard instruments for the assessment of BED.RESUMO CONTEXTO: Os transtornos alimentares entre os candidatos à cirurgia bariátrica são comuns e est&a...
Dr Heshmati and colleagues looked retrospectively at the outcomes of bariatric surgery (BS) in patients with concurrent inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Our overall knowledge of the relationship between obesity and the immune system, particularly looking at inflammation and gut microbiota, is still quite limited, but we can begin to learn about these relationships with retrospective reviews such as this one.

AbstractBackgroundBariatric surgery reduces atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk. However, the comparative effect of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) on 10-year and lifetime ASCVD risk, as defined by the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA), remains unknown.MethodsUsing the ACC/AHA ASCVD risk estimator, 10-year and lifetime ASCVD risks were calculated before and 1 year after bariatric surgery for patients aged 40–78 who underwent RYGB or SG at an academic medical center in California between 2003 and 2015. Change in risk was calculated by ...
ConclusionsCompliance over 2 weeks was high in both VLEDs with most subjects achieving ketosis. Overall satisfaction was moderately high, although variable. Whilst Formulite™ is a viable alternative to Optifast™, better formulations of VLED that addresses key adverse effects, whilst achieving ketosis, would be of signific ant value.
CONCLUSIONS: CEL and 2SC in AT are useful biomarkers of AT metabolism and predict the individual's ability to reduce body weight after bariatric surgery. PMID: 31112015 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsMaternal anemia after MS may lead to low neonatal birth weight, which could be attributed to the large-scale reduction in maternal micronutrient levels.
The management of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) leaks remains a challenge. This can be treated with placement of self-expandable metal stents, which are most effective in the acute and early settings. However, migration is a frequent adverse event (AE). Novel fully covered stents with a larger proximal flare to limit migration designed specifically to treat post-sleeve leaks were recently introduced.
We read with interest the article “Opioids and bariatric surgery: A review and suggested recommendations for assessment and risk reduction.” by Heinberg et al. (1) published online in the Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases. The authors evaluated the usage of opioids before/after bariatric surgery. They have stated that the re was no decrease in opioid use despite the decrease in obesity and related pain after bariatric surgery . And also an increase at the levels of morphine equivalents could be seen over time.
