AbstractBackgroundTo compare changes in bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with morbid obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D) a year after being randomized to metabolic gastric bypass (mRYGB), sleeve gastrectomy (SG), and greater curvature plication (GCP). We also analyzed the association of gastrointestinal hormones with skeletal metabolism.MethodsForty-five patients with T2D (mean BMI 39.4  ± 1.9 kg/m2) were randomly assigned to mRYGB, SG, or GCP. Before and 12  months after surgery, anthropometric, body composition, biochemical parameters, fasting plasma glucagon, ghrelin, and PYY as well a...

ConclusionOur meta-analysis suggested that obese patients undergoing GB had lower levels of serum calcium and 25-hydroxyvitamin D as well as higher levels of serum phosphorus and PTH. To prevent postoperative bone metabolism-related diseases, appropriate postoperative interventions should be undertaken for particular surgical procedures.

This study shed some light on the modification of postoperative gut microbial composition after bariatric surgery.MethodsA prospective longitudinal study on healthy lean subjects and patients who underwent bariatric surgery (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy) was carried out. Anthropometric and metabolic data, smoking, food preferences data, and stool samples were collected from lean subjects and from obese patients before and 3 and 6  months after surgery (T0, T3, and T6, respectively).ResultsWe collected stool samples from 25 obese patients before surgery and 3 and 6  months thereafte...

AbstractBackgroundMetabolic and bariatric surgery is an effective strategy to curb the natural history of obesity progression and improve psychosocial status in the short term for adolescents with severe obesity. The medium- and long-term psychosocial impact of bariatric surgery in this population is not established.MethodsWe searched MEDLINE (Ovid), EMBASE, Web of Science, PsycInfo, and the Cochrane Libraries through October 2017 for reports of weight loss surgery (roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and adjustable gastric banding) on adolescents with severe obesity (age  ≤ 21 years) having...

We aimed to assess, over a 7-year period, the late adverse events after gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy compared with matched control groups.MethodsIn this nationwide, observational, population-based, cohort study, we used data extracted from ...

This study evaluated changes in serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) induced by laparoscopic bariatric surgery (BS) in non-diabetic obese subjects with low (L-HDL-C) or normal (N-HDL-C) levels of HDL-C. We assessed whether increased HDL-C is associated with weight loss, serum non-HDL cholesterol (non-HDL-C), serum triglycerides (TG), and physical activity (PA) before and 6 and 15  months after BS.MethodsIn this prospective cohort study, 71 subjects undergoing BS (42 by Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and 29 by sleeve gastrectomy) were evaluated for the % Excess Weight Loss (%EWL), waist circumference (WC), seru...

CONCLUSIONS: This review examines various factors influencing patient and procedure selection in bariatric surgery. Authors feel it is currently not possible to make strict recommendations and surgeons should carefully discuss the pros and cons of bariatric surgery and that of various options available in their practice with the patients before making a final recommendation.

Abstract Alcohol and the Bariatric Patient: When One Drink Becomes Two Drinks Abstract. Moderate consumption of alcohol is a risk factor for weight gain and obesity. Alcohol affects all components of the energy balance. Alcohol consumption is - as in the general population - also a widespread phenomenon in obese and bariatric patients. As a function of the bariatric surgery technique, alcohol metabolism is altered: gastric bypass surgery and sleeve gastrectomy lead to a faster absorption of alcohol, higher peak alcohol concentration and a longer alcohol persistence in the circulation. Further reward mechanisms for...
