IJERPH, Vol. 16, Pages 1776: Pilot Testing of a Patient Decision Aid for Adolescents with Severe Obesity in US Pediatric Weight Management Programs within the COMPASS Network International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph16101776 Authors: Jaime Moore Matthew Haemer Nazrat Mirza Ying Z Weatherall Joan Han Caren Mangarelli Mary Jane Hawkins Stavra Xanthakos Robert Siegel Shared decision-making (SDM) is a best practice for delivering high-quality, patient-centered care when there are multiple options from which to choose. A patient decision aid (PDA) to promote SDM for the treatment of adolescent severe obesity was piloted among 12–17-year-olds (n = 31) from six pediatric weight management programs within the Childhood Obesity Multi Program Analysis and Study System (COMPASS). Medical providers used a brochure that described indications, risks, and benefits of intensive lifestyle management alone versus bariatric surgery plus lifestyle. Immediately after, patients/families completed a survey. Patient/family perceptions of provider effort to promote understanding of health issues, to listen to what mattered most to them, and to include what mattered most to them in choosing next steps averaged 8.6, 8.8, and 8.7, respectively (0 = no effort, 9 = every effort). Nearly all (96%) reported knowing the risks/benefits of each treatment option and feeling clear about which risks/benefits mattered most to them. Most ...

Intragastric balloon (IGB) insertion leads to dietary restriction; however, its neurohormonal actions were also described. RMR adjusted for body mass (RMR/mass) seems to increase after bariatric interventions, whereas it generally decreases after caloric-restriction-based therapies. However, no studies evaluated the changes in body composition and resting metabolic rate (RMR) over IGB treatment.

AbstractReviewed here are multiple mouse models of vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) and Roux-en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) that have emerged over the past decade. These models use diverse approaches to both operative and perioperative procedures. Scrutinizing the benefits and pitfalls of each surgical model and what to expect in terms of post-operative outcomes will enhance our assessment of studies using mouse models, as well as advance our understanding of their translational potential. Two mouse models of bariatric surgery, VSG-lembert and RYGB-small pouch, demonstrate low mortality and most closely recapitulate the human...

AbstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between bariatric surgery (laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy [LSG] and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass [LRYGB]) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The number of obese patients with newly onset, worsened, or improved GERD after bariatric surgery in each article were extracted. In the pooled analysis, LSG was associated with a higher risk of GERD than LRYGB (odds ratio [OR] = 5.10, 95% confidence interval [CI] 3.60 –7.23,p
