Right now, one in 12 children and adolescents in the US are severely obese. If that isn’t startling enough, consider this: among 12-to-15-year-olds, that number jumps to one in 10 — and among 16-to-19-year-olds, it is one in seven. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the best hope for many of these youths may be bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery is surgery that helps with weight loss by making the stomach smaller and making other changes in the digestive system. It’s jarring to think about doing irreversible surgery on an adolescent — or a child, as the AAP discourages age limi...

Obesity has a major impact on the health of women at reproductive age and during pregnancy [1,2]. Obesity has several deleterious effects on female reproductive function, which includes obesity-associated hypothalamic-gonadal dysfunction, fertility impairment, and increased rate of miscarriages [3]. Women with obesity also incur in higher risks of pregnancy-related mortality and morbidity, because the prevalence of gestational diabetes, fetal growth restriction, prematurity, stillbirth, traumatic delivery, and some congenital malformations are increased [2].

AbstractEmerging evidence suggests that bariatric surgery improves pregnancy outcomes of women with obesity by reducing the rates of gestational diabetes, pregnancy-induced hypertension, and macrosomia. However, it is associated with an increased risk of a small-for-gestational-age fetus and prematurity. Based on the work of a multidisciplinary task force, we propose clinical practice recommendations for pregnancy management following bariatric surgery. They are derived from a comprehensive review of the literature, existing guidelines, and expert opinion covering the preferred type of surgery for women of childbearing age...

Authors: Malakauskienė L, Nadišauskienė RJ, Ramašauskaitė D, Bartusevičienė E, Ramonienė G, Maleckienė L Abstract The optimal interval between bariatric surgery (BS) and pregnancy remains clearly undefined. The aim of this study was to assess pregnancy outcomes according to the interval from BS to conception. The nationwide study cohort consisted of 130 women with previous BS and postoperative singleton delivery during 2005-2015 in Lithuania. Women who conceived within the first 12 months after BS were included in the early conception (EC) group (n = 30); who became pregnant ...

The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis is to investigate the association between pregnancy after bariatric surgery and adverse perinatal outcomes. Methods and findingsSearches were conducted in Medline, Embase, PsycINFO, CINAHL, Scopus, and Google Scholar from inception to June 2019, supplemented by hand-searching reference lists, citations, and journals. Observational studies comparing perinatal outcomes post-bariatric surgery to pregnancies without prior bariatric surgery were included. Outcomes of interest were perinatal mortality, congenital anomalies, preterm birth, postterm birth, small and large f...

ConclusionsBariatric surgery is a successful treatment of maternal obesity, but certain surgery-specific risks may exist. More data are needed to determine clinical guidelines. The long-term effects of surgery on pregnancy outcomes are unknown.
