Predicting surgical site infections following laparoscopic bariatric surgery: development of the BariWound tool using the MBSAQIP database

This study included patients who underwent primary laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) or laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). The primary outcome of interest was incisional SSI occurring within 30  days. Surgeries performed in 2015 were used in a derivation cohort and the predictive tool was validated against the 2016 cohort. A forward selection algorithm was used to build a logistic regression model predicting probability of SSI.ResultsA total of 274,187 patients were included with 71.7% being LSG and 28.3% LRYGB. 0.7% of patients had a SSI in which 71.0% had an incisional SSI, and 29.9% had an organ/space SSI. Of patients who had an incisional SSI, 88.7% were superficial, 10.9% were deep, and 0.4% were both. A prediction model to assess for risk of incisional SSI,BariWound, was derived and validated.BariWound consists of procedure type, chronic steroid or immunosuppressant use, gastroesophageal reflux disease, obstructive sleep apnea, sex, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, operative time, and body mass index. It stratifies individuals into very high (>  10%), high (5–10%), medium (1–5%), and low risk (

Abstract Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has become one of the most commonly used bariatric procedures worldwide. However, data regarding long-term results remain insufficient. The aim of this study was to review the long-term results after SG. We conducted a comprehensive literature search of Medline and the Cochrane Library for articles published until May 2016 on the long-term results (>5 yr) after SG. Studies representing outcomes of SG were included if they reported≥5-year results that contained at least one outcome of interest-weight loss, co-morbidities, long-term complications, or quality of life-and SG was ...
