Association of prior metabolic and bariatric surgery with severity of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in patients with obesity.
CONCLUSION: Prior metabolic surgery with subsequent weight loss and improvement of metabolic abnormalities was associated with lower rates of hospital and ICU admission in patients with obesity who became infected with SARS-CoV-2. Confirmation of these findings will require larger studies.

Pregnancy after bariatric surgery in women with rheumatic diseases and association with adverse birth outcomes.
CONCLUSION: Our study shows that women with ARD already have a high occurrence of several adverse birth outcomes, and this was not further increased by a history of bariatric surgery. The infants born to women with a history of ARD and bariatric surgery were admitted to the NICU significantly more than the infants born to women with an ARD and no history of bariatric surgery.

Aortic injuries following stents in bariatric surgery: our experience.
CONCLUSION: cSEMS are potentially effective tools for the management of foregut leaks in bariatric surgery. The biggest challenges with this approach are stent migration and poor quality of life. Caution is required due to the risk of fatal complications such as foregut wall perforation and aortic injury.

The Influence of Health Literacy and Health Numeracy on Weight Loss Outcomes Following Bariatric Surgery.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Although cognitive functioning and health literacy are related to weight loss 1year following bariatric surgery, the influence of health numeracy (i.e., health-related mathematical abilities) is unknown. In addition, further research is needed to examine the impact of all these factors on longer-term weight loss outcomes to determine if they influence the ability to maintain weight loss. SETTING: Single bariatric center. METHODS: Patients (N = 567) who underwent bariatric surgery from 2014-2017 completed a brief survey including current weight. Retrospective chart reviews were conduc...

Trends in revisional bariatric surgery using the MBSAQIP database 2015-2017.
CONCLUSION: LAGBs are being taken out or converted, and this group makes up the largest portion of revisions and conversions. It is difficult to track SG to LRYGB, but the number of unlisted cases continues to climb. This will likely surpass LAGB conversions with time. The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation Quality Initiative Program should be modified to capture revisions/conversions of SG.
