Bariatric Surgery's Cardiovascular Benefit Extends to 7 Years Bariatric Surgery's Cardiovascular Benefit Extends to 7 Years

Patients with obesity who had bariatric surgery had a lower risk of having a major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) or dying from all causes during a median 7-year follow-up, compared with similar patients who did not undergo surgery.Medscape Medical News

Funding Opportunity RFA-DK-21-027 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement invites applications for National Centers for Metabolic Phenotyping in Live Models of Obesity and Diabetes (MPMOD). The Centers will provide complex metabolic, physiologic and behavioral phenotyping and consulting services to characterize living mouse models on a fair fee-for-service basis. Tests that do not require living animals will not be supported by this initiative. MPMODs may also provide special mouse models for study at the Center or for distribution, such as mice that have undergone bariatric surg...

CONCLUSION: With an almost complete clearance of liver fat 1 year after surgery, RYGB and SG were both highly effective in reducing hepatic steatosis. Bariatric surgery had less influence on degree of fibrosis in the short term, but assessment of long-term progression is warranted.PRIMARY FUNDING SOURCE: Vestfold Hospital Trust and the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority.PMID:34843380 | DOI:10.7326/M21-1962

CONCLUSION: In view of an increasing number of patients undergoing bariatric surgery, it will probably not be feasible in the future for lifelong follow-up to be provided exclusively in specialized centers.PMID:34819222 | DOI:10.3238/arztebl.m2021.0359

The efficacy and safety of bariatric surgery as a treatment for adult obesity and related complications, particularly type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), is well established, with evidence from more than 13 randomized controlled trials demonstrating its superior efficacy compared with conventional medical therapy. As such, bariatric surgery is increasingly being recognized by international governing bodies, physicians, and surgeons as a central element in the treatment algorithm for adults with obesity.

Reducing the risk of death due to cardiovascular disease (CVD) is an important direction for diabetes prevention and treatment. Chinese population with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has a high risk of developing CVD at relatively low body mass index (BMI) levels. Currently, no studies have evaluated the effect of bariatric surgery versus medical therapy on long-term CVD risk in T2DM patients with low BMI.

da Velluzzi The obesity epidemic, mainly due to lifestyle changes in recent decades, leads to serious comorbidities that reduce life expectancy. This situation is affecting the health policies of many nations around the world. Traditional measures such as diet, physical activity, and drugs are often not enough to achieve weight loss goals and to maintain the results over time. Bariatric surgery (BS) includes various techniques, which favor rapid and sustained weight loss. BS is a useful and, in most cases, the best treatment in severe and complicated obesity. In addition, it has a greater benefit/risk ratio than non-su...

We appreciate the response to our recent study by Syed and colleagues who note two areas of interest in their letter. The first is a request for a sub-analysis of cases with either a serious complication (n=361) or infectious complication (n=431) to identify how well these individuals tolerated their complications based on their preoperative glycemic control. Although the MBSAQIP is the largest and most comprehensive metabolic and bariatric surgery outcomes dataset available, it does not collect granular data to accurately study how well patients tolerated their complications such as postoperative leak.
