Cardiovascular Biomarkers after Metabolic Surgery versus Medical Therapy for Diabetes: Insights from the STAMPEDE Trial
Background: Longitudinal studies have shown that bariatric and metabolic surgery is associated with significant reduction in cardiovascular events and mortality. The Surgical Treatment And Medications Potentially Eradicate Diabetes Efficiently (STAMPEDE) trial showed that 5-years after randomization, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) were superior to intensive medical therapy (IMT) alone in achieving glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The aim of this study was to assess long-term changes in cardiovascular biomarkers after surgical versus medical treatment of T2DM. (...

Is Weight Loss Better if Staged Single Anastomosis Duodeno-ileal Bypass is Performed within the First Year of Sleeve Gastrectomy?
Background: The failure rates of Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) are increasing especially in patients with super obesity. The two-stage approach to single anastomosis duodeno-ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy (SADI-S) allows the surgeons to do the SG first and conversion to SADI if failure is identified. Weight loss after SG stalls by 12-18 months. However, if this is true then what should be the golden period to perform this conversion, in order maximize the weight loss?
