Conclusions: In summary, intrauterine growth delay in twin pregnancies after GB is assumed to be a multifactorial event with altered metabolism as the most i mportant factor. However, special attention must be paid to the particularity of twin pregnancies as they seem to be subject to other additional mechanism.

Discussion Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder with an intense fear of being overweight (i.e. distorted body image), and self-starvation and excessive weight loss. It is more common in women (1.2%) than men (0.2%) but can be seen in both genders. Risk factors include high-intelligence, perfectionism/inflexibility, anxiety, activities where thinner body types are expected (e.g. dancer, diver, gymnast, long-distance runner, volleyball player, etc.) Other eating disorders include bulimia nervosa (i.e. cycles of binge eating and then purging), binge eating disorder (i.e. purging), orthorexia (i.e. obsessions with healthful ...

This study is a comparison between Classic and High lateral tension abdominoplasty techniques in treatment of abdominal skin redundancy in post bariatric patients.In our research, we compared between two techniques of abdominoplasty in treatment of post bariatric abdominal skin redundancy, the classic technique and High Lateral Tension technique, the comparison was in patient satisfaction and in post operative complicationsThe study showed that patient satisfaction was higher in classic technique than the High lateral tension technique due to smaller and less apparent scar, while post operative complications were almost th...

The objective of this study was to review the impact of bariatric surgery on breastfeeding following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analyses guidelines. PubMed and Medline databases were searched using terms such as "bariatric surgery," "postnatal care," "lactation," and "breastfeeding." Reference lists were also used to find relevant articles. A total of 49 records were identified. Abstracts were screened, and 11 observational studies were identified after meeting inclusion criteria, which included the use of original research on breastfeeding and women...

Pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A) is an enzyme that increases IGF-activity through cleavage of IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs), primarily IGFBP-4, whereby bound IGF-I becomes released as a free molecule. The enzymatic activity of PAPP-A is irreversibly suppressed by the glycoprotein stanniocalcin-2 (STC2). Pre-clinical and clinical studies suggest that the STC2 – PAPP-A – IGFBP-4 axis is important in controlling local IGF-action. STC2, PAPP-A and IGFBP-4 are expressed in adipose tissue, and as bariatric surgery markedly reduces the amount of fat, we found it relevant to study the impact of Roux-en-Y ...

Obesity in pregnancy is associated with significant risks, notably hypertensive disorders. Bariatric surgery achieves sustained weight loss and has several cardiovascular benefits including positive effects on blood pressure, cardiac geometry and both systolic and diastolic function. Pregnancy following bariatric surgery is also associated with improved outcomes, including a reduced risk of hypertensive disorders, although the underlying mechanisms remain uncertain. Maternal cardiovascular adaptation plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy pregnancy and maladaptation has been associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Metabolic and bariatric surgery helps women achieve a healthier weight, reduce comorbid conditions, increase fertility rates and improve pregnancy outcomes compared to counterparts who are obese. Breastfeeding is known to provide both infant and maternal health benefits as well. Less is known about the impact of bariatric surgery on breastfeeding.
