Use of Antihypertensive Medications in Left Ventricular Assist Device Patients Who Undergo Sleeve Gastrectomy

Purpose of review The aim of the article is to review studies on bone health and oxalate metabolism/therapeutics in the obese rodent model of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and examine pathways to decrease procedural morbidity. Recent findings Compared with controls, RYGB rodents have up to 40-fold more fat in their stool (steatorrhea) which positively correlates to increased urinary oxalate. These unabsorbed intestinal fatty acids bind calcium and prevent gut calcium oxalate formation, increasing soluble luminal oxalate availability and absorption (enteric hyperoxaluria). When intraluminal fecal fat exceeded about 1...
