Surgical procedures aimed at affecting metabolism and producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.
The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.
Surgical procedure in which the STOMACH is transected high on the body. The resulting small proximal gastric pouch is joined to any parts of the SMALL INTESTINE by an end-to-side SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS, depending on the amounts of intestinal surface being bypasses. This procedure is used frequently in the treatment of MORBID OBESITY by limiting the size of functional STOMACH, food intake, and food absorption.
Surgical procedures involving the STOMACH and sometimes the lower ESOPHAGUS to correct anatomical defects, or to treat MORBID OBESITY by reducing the size of the stomach. There are several subtypes of bariatric gastroplasty, such as vertical banded gastroplasty, silicone ring vertical gastroplasty, and horizontal banded gastroplasty.
Decrease in existing BODY WEIGHT.
A surgical procedure which diverts pancreatobiliary secretions via the duodenum and the jejunum into the colon, the remaining small intestine being anastomosed to the stomach after antrectomy. The procedure produces less diarrhea than does jejunoileal bypass.
A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).
The discipline concerned with WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY.
A procedure consisting of the SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS of the proximal part of the JEJUNUM to the distal portion of the ILEUM, so as to bypass the nutrient-absorptive segment of the SMALL INTESTINE. Due to the severe malnutrition and life-threatening metabolic complications, this method is no longer used to treat MORBID OBESITY.
Excretion of an excessive amount of OXALATES in the urine.
Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.
A condition due to a deficiency of one or more essential vitamins. (Dorland, 27th ed)
The period before a surgical operation.
A Y-shaped surgical anastomosis of any part of the digestive system which includes the small intestine as the eventual drainage site.
A procedure in which a laparoscope (LAPAROSCOPES) is inserted through a small incision near the navel to examine the abdominal and pelvic organs in the PERITONEAL CAVITY. If appropriate, biopsy or surgery can be performed during laparoscopy.
An indicator of body density as determined by the relationship of BODY WEIGHT to BODY HEIGHT. BMI=weight (kg)/height squared (m2). BMI correlates with body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE). Their relationship varies with age and gender. For adults, BMI falls into these categories: below 18.5 (underweight); 18.5-24.9 (normal); 25.0-29.9 (overweight); 30.0 and above (obese). (National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.
The period following a surgical operation.
Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.
Excision of the whole (total gastrectomy) or part (subtotal gastrectomy, partial gastrectomy, gastric resection) of the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)

Observation of a population for a sufficient number of persons over a sufficient number of years to generate incidence or mortality rates subsequent to the selection of the study group.
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
Care given during the period prior to undergoing surgery when psychological and physical preparations are made according to the special needs of the individual patient. This period spans the time between admission to the hospital to the time the surgery begins. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
General term for a group of MALNUTRITION syndromes caused by failure of normal INTESTINAL ABSORPTION of nutrients.
Studies in which individuals or populations are followed to assess the outcome of exposures, procedures, or effects of a characteristic, e.g., occurrence of disease.
Agents that increase energy expenditure and weight loss by neural and chemical regulation. Beta-adrenergic agents and serotoninergic drugs have been experimentally used in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) to treat obesity.
Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.

Does treating obesity stabilize chronic kidney disease? (1/499)

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a growing health issue in the Western world. Obesity, as part of the metabolic syndrome adds to the morbidity and mortality. The incidence of diabetes and hypertension, two primary etiological factors for chronic renal failure, is significantly higher with obesity. We report a case with morbid obesity whose renal function was stabilized with aggressive management of his obesity. CASE REPORT: A 43-year old morbidly obese Caucasian male was referred for evaluation of his chronic renal failure. He had been hypertensive with well controlled blood pressure with a body mass index of 46 and a baseline serum creatinine of 4.3 mg/dl (estimated glomerular filtration rate of 16 ml/min). He had failed all conservative attempts at weight reduction and hence was referred for a gastric by-pass surgery. Following the bariatric surgery he had approximately 90 lbs. weight loss over 8-months and his serum creatinine stabilized to 4.0 mg/dl. CONCLUSION: Obesity appears to be an independent risk factor for renal failure. Targeting obesity is beneficial not only for better control of hypertension and diabetes, but also possibly helps stabilization of chronic kidney failure.  (+info)

Use and costs of bariatric surgery and prescription weight-loss medications. (2/499)

The extent of use of bariatric surgery and weight-loss medications is unknown. Using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample, we estimate that the number of bariatric surgeries grew 400 percent between 1998 and 2002; such surgeries were performed on 0.6 percent of the 11.5 million adults clinically eligible in 2002. Hospital costs for bariatric surgery grew sixfold to $948 million in 2002. The inpatient death rate declined 64 percent. Among employers that covered weight-loss drugs in 2002, less than 2.4 percent of adults clinically eligible for these drugs used them, with average annual spending of $304 per user.  (+info)

The role of price, sociodemographic factors, and health in the demand for bariatric surgery. (3/499)

OBJECTIVES: To estimate the effect of price, sociodemographic factors, and health on the demand for bariatric surgery among eligible individuals with private health insurance, in order to enable policy makers and insurers to make more informed decisions concerning access to care for bariatric surgery. STUDY DESIGN: We conducted an Internet-based contingent valuation survey of 1802 obese persons eligible for bariatric surgery but who had not undergone the procedure. METHODS: We used multivariate regression analysis to separately estimate the likelihood of having gastric bypass and gastric banding surgery at different out-of-pocket costs. We combined the results with estimates of the privately insured bariatric surgery-eligible population from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1999-2002, to estimate aggregate demand. RESULTS: Out-of-pocket cost was negatively and highly significantly related to the self-reported likelihood of having surgery. Persons with higher incomes and younger persons also reported a significantly higher likelihood of surgery. No effect was found for body mass index or for most comorbidities. We estimate that about 150 000 bariatric operations per year would be demanded by those with private health insurance at an out-of-pocket cost of USD 25 000. At USD 5000, we estimate a demand of 250 000 bariatric operations per year. CONCLUSIONS: Price is significantly and negatively related to the demand for bariatric surgery. At an out-of-pocket cost of USD 5000, about 2.2% of the bariatric surgery-eligible population would strongly consider surgery.  (+info)

A cost-benefit simulation model of coverage for bariatric surgery among full-time employees. (4/499)

OBJECTIVE: To use a simulation model to estimate the costs and benefits of bariatric surgery among full-time employees. STUDY DESIGN: Multivariate regression analysis of nationally representative survey data sets to estimate the costs of obesity and a simulation model of the number of years until breakeven under alternate assumptions about the costs and benefits of bariatric surgery. METHODS: We used a 2-part model to estimate medical costs of obesity based on the 2000-2001 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey. We estimated work loss with a negative binomial regression based on the 2002 National Health Interview Survey. Using these results, we simulated the expected number of years required for a bariatric surgery procedure to become cost saving. RESULTS: Nine percent of the full-time US workforce, or 29% of the obese workforce, is eligible for bariatric surgery. Obese workers eligible for bariatric surgery have 5.1 (P < .01) additional days of work loss and USD 2230 (in 2004 dollars) (P < .01) higher annual medical costs than persons of normal weight. CONCLUSION: Although the cost implications of bariatric surgery among full-time employees depend on many factors, the simulations reveal that 5 or more years of follow-up are most likely required for these operations to become cost saving unless the employee bears a significant fraction of the total costs of the surgery.  (+info)

The progress in bariatric surgery. (5/499)

Morbid obesity, caused by fat tissue accumulation, is a serial multi-factorial chronic disease, with rapidly increasing prevalence in most countries in the world including Poland. Conservative treatment of morbid obesity is almost always unsatisfactory and that is why several surgical methods have been developed. There are four kind of methods: malabsorbtive procedures; restrictive procedures; malabsorbtive/restrictive procedures and experimental procedures. The development of bariatric surgery goes back to 1952 and since that time it has been evolving dynamically. All the surgical methods have benefits and disadvantages. Presently the introduction of minimally invasive surgical techniques seems to be very safe, efficient and cost-effective in treatment for morbid obesity. New methods are also being evaluated, such as gastric myo-electrical stimulation. Bariatric surgery will still be developing until we understand all the factors responsible for it is origin.  (+info)

Bariatric surgery in Poland from 1993 to 2003. (6/499)

Morbid obesity affects about 300, 000 patients in Poland. The number and type of bariatric procedures performed between 1993 and 2003 has been based on data collected from Polish surgeons active in this field. During the years 1993 - 2003, 1285 primary bariatric procedures were performed in total. Amongst these 79.1% were, commonly done as restrictive ones, including vertical banded gastroplasty-76.3%, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding-17.7% and silastic ring vertical gastroplasty-5.5% and at last non-adjustable gastric band with 0.5%. Less popular are malabsorptive procedures - 20.9%, with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass - 79.1% and biliopancreatic diversion 20.9%. During last year 2003: malabsorptive procedures represented one third of all primary procedures and the laparoscopic approach was utilised in 18 % of operations. 61 revisions were reported. There are only three centres with experience in treating more than 100 patients (one of them treated over 600). Two centres have experience in carrying out bariatric surgery for longer than five years. During 1993 - 1997 216 operations were performed. Between 1998 - 2002: 724 procedures, and during last year 345. Patients were treated during last year in ten surgical departments. The number of morbidly obese patients treated surgically in Poland is increasing, but it is still inadequate to meet the growing demand.  (+info)

Gut hormone profiles following bariatric surgery favor an anorectic state, facilitate weight loss, and improve metabolic parameters. (7/499)

OBJECTIVE: To study the effect of bariatric surgery on the entero-hypothalamic endocrine axis of humans and rodents. BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery is the most effective obesity treatment as it achieves substantial and sustained weight loss. Glycemic control and enhanced satiation improve before substantial weight loss occurs. Gut peptides, acting both peripherally and centrally, contribute to glycemic control and regulate food intake. METHODS: We examined meal-stimulated responses of insulin, ghrelin, peptide YY (PYY), glucagon-like-peptide-1 (GLP-1), and pancreatic polypeptide (PP) in humans and rodents following different bariatric surgical techniques. RESULTS: Compared with lean and obese controls, patients following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) had increased postprandial plasma PYY and GLP-1 favoring enhanced satiety. Furthermore, RYGB patients had early and exaggerated insulin responses, potentially mediating improved glycemic control. None of these effects were observed in patients losing equivalent weight through gastric banding. Leptin, ghrelin, and PP were similar in both the surgical groups. Using a rodent model of jejuno-intestinal bypass (JIB), we showed elevated PYY and GLP-1 in JIB rats compared with sham-operated rats. Moreover, exogenous PYY reduced food intake and blockade of endogenous PYY increased food intake. Thus, higher plasma PYY following JIB may contribute to reduced food intake and contribute to weight loss. CONCLUSIONS: Following RYGB and JIB, a pleiotropic endocrine response may contribute to the improved glycemic control, appetite reduction, and long-term changes in body weight.  (+info)

Health-related quality of life and depressive symptoms in adolescents with extreme obesity presenting for bariatric surgery. (8/499)

OBJECTIVE: We sought to document health-related quality of life (HRQoL) impairment and depressive symptomatology in adolescents with extreme obesity considering surgical weight loss. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective review of clinical data was conducted for 33 consecutive extremely obese adolescents presenting for evaluation at a bariatric surgery program for adolescents. Adolescents completed the PedsQL and the Beck Depression Inventory. Mothers completed the parent-proxy PedsQL and the Child Behavior Checklist. RESULTS: HRQoL scores from both informants were markedly impaired relative to published norms on healthy youth. Moderate agreement was found for self-reported and parent-proxy HRQoL. Approximately 30% of youth met criteria for clinically significant depressive symptoms when based on self-report and 45% of youth when based on mother report. Only 21% of youth were currently engaged in some form of psychological treatment (eg, medication or therapy). CONCLUSIONS: The day-to-day life of adolescents with extreme obesity seeking bariatric surgery is globally and severely impaired. However, only some of these adolescents demonstrate clinically significant levels of depressive symptomatology. These data will be critical to the development of more informed patient selection criteria and more efficacious treatment paradigms for this vulnerable pediatric subgroup.  (+info)

As the use of bariatric surgery for treatment of extreme obesity adults continues to rise, clinicians must be aware of pre-existing nutritional deficiencies in overweight and obese patients. Nutritional deficiencies are common in patients undergoing bariatric surgery and these deficiencies should be detected and addressed early to avoid post-operative complications. To improve long-term outcomes following bariatric surgery, nutritional screening and prescribing appropriate supplementation to prevent nutrient deficiencies is needed. Vitamin D deficiency is common following bariatric surgery and has been reported to occur in 50-80% bariatric patients.The goal of this pilot study is to help develop nutrient supplementation interventions following two types of bariatric surgery: Roux-en Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy.. Recently, several studies in adults have revealed an inverse relationship between body fat and blood 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 [25(OH)D] levels, the relevant marker of low vitamin ...
Bariatric surgery is an effective long-term weight loss strategy yielding improvements in neurocognitive function; however, the mechanism(s) responsible for these improvements remains unclear. Here, we assessed the feasibility of using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to evaluate whether cerebral vascular reactivity (CVR) is impaired in severely obese bariatric surgery candidates compared with normal weight healthy controls and whether CVR improves following bariatric surgery. We also investigated whether changes in CVR were associated with changes in cognitive function. Bariatric surgery candidates (n = 6) were compared with normal weight healthy controls of a similar age (n = 10) at baseline, and then reassessed 2 weeks and 14 weeks following sleeve gastrectomy bariatric surgery. Young reference controls (n = 7) were also studied at baseline to establish the range of normal for each outcome measure. Microvascular and macrovascular CVR to hypercapnia (5% CO2) were assessed using blood-oxygen-level
Kevin D Helling, MD, Kamran Samakar, MD, Eric Sheu, MD, PhD, Malcolm Robinson, MD, Scott A Shikora, MD, Ashley Vernon, MD, David Spector, MD, Ali Tavakkoli, MD. Brigham and Womens Hospital. Introduction: While the safety of bariatric surgery has increased significantly, complications do arise which necessitate the use of Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN). The safety of TPN in this patient cohort is not studied. We therefore studied the outcomes of a group of patients who required TPN following bariatric surgery.. Methods and Procedures: The TPN database at our institution was queried and 24 consecutive cases of TPN usage identified. All patients had bariatric surgery between 12/2008 and 10/2010. Patient demographics, type of operation performed, indications for and duration of TPN therapy, as well complications arising from TPN administration were recorded.. Results: Twenty-two of the 24 patients underwent revisionary bariatric operations prior to initiation of TPN. Two patients underwent ...
Objective: The basic aim of this study was to explore the differences between bariatric surgery candidates (BSC) and control group in self-esteem and quality of life. In addition, our secondary aim is to find out the relationship between self-esteem and quality of life in bariatric surgery candidates. Methods: The study involves a group of BSCs screened at Haydarpasa Numune Training and Research Hospital. Sixty-one consecutive BSCs and control group assessed by Short Form-36 (SF-36), Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). Control group was constituted from 61 normal-weight employees from the same hospital. Results: BSCs group consisted from 50 women and 11 men. BSCs scored statistically lower on all the SF-36 subscales, BDI and self-esteem scale compared with controls. The rates of having a lifetime psychiatric disorder and having any comorbid medical condition in the BSCs were statistically significantly higher than the control group. Because of regression analysis, ...

Recent systematic reviews have identified that current patient-reported outcome instruments have content limitations when used to measure change following bariatric surgery. The aim of this study was to measure change after bariatric surgery using the BODY-Q, a PRO instrument designed for weight loss and body contouring. The BODY-Q is composed of 18 independently functioning scales and an obesity-specific symptom checklist that measure appearance, health-related quality of life (HR-QOL) and experience of health-care. The sample for this study included patients who were exploring or seeking bariatric surgery in Hamilton (Canada) at the time of the BODY-Q field-test study and who agreed to further contact from the research team. These patients were invited to complete 12 BODY-Q scales and the symptom checklist between 7 June 2016 and 29 November 2016. Data were collected online (REDCap) and via postal surveys. Clinical change was measured using paired t-tests with effect sizes and standardized response
Background: Bariatric surgery candidates engage in less physical activity (PA) and spend longer periods in sedentary behaviour (SB) when compared to the general adult population. The aim of this study was to explore the beliefs about PA and perceived barriers and facilitators to PA in obese adults scheduled for bariatric surgery. Methods: Nineteen obese adults (15 females), with a mean (SD) age of 41.6 (12.1) years, weight of 119.2 (20.5) kg and body mass index of 41.6 (6.7) kg/m2 participated in a one-on-one in-depth qualitative interview before undergoing bariatric surgery. Data were analysed using inductive thematic analysis. Results: Most participants believed that engaging in regular PA confers important health benefits, however reported insufficient PA levels to obtain those benefits. The perceived barriers to PA reported by participants were both obesity related (e.g. bodily pain, physical limitation and self-presentational concerns) and non-obesity related (e.g. lack of motivation, ...

As more and more bariatric surgeries are performed each year, and as patients become more informed, it is very quickly realized that researching the surgeon is as important as researching the surgeon. Finding a quality facility that provides quality care is crucial with any surgery; however, this is especially true with bariatric surgeries. The post surgery needs of the bariatric patients differ from the post surgery needs of those receiving other operations. In 2004, the American Society for Bariatric Surgery (ASBS) established the Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence (BSCOE) program to ensure consistent, quality bariatric surgery and care with a focus on safety. This program is independently monitored by the not-for-profit Surgical Review Corporation.. Centers are required to go through a rigorous application process that requires both the hospital and surgeon to meet 10 separate requirements as well as undergo a thorough site inspection. There are strict volume requirements as well; and ...
ECONOMIC factors should not be the only criteria for judging the worth of bariatric surgery as a treatment for obesity, according to an obesity expert.. Professor Paul OBrien, director of Monash Universitys Centre for Obesity Research and Education, said the point of bariatric surgery was quality of life, not cost-effectiveness.. Professor OBrien was commenting on research published in JAMA Surgery, which found that bariatric surgery does not reduce overall health costs in the long term. (1) The US research involved a multi-year analysis of health care costs based on 29 820 privately insured people who underwent bariatric surgery between 2002 and 2008 who were matched with patients who not did not have surgery but had diagnoses closely associated with obesity.. The authors reported that total costs were greater in the bariatric surgery group during the second and third years following surgery but were similar in the later years.. The bariatric groups prescription and office visit costs ...
Over the last few decades, the world has seen an unprecedented obesity crisis. According to one estimate, 25% of the worlds adult population is overweight, and by 2030, this figure will have increased to 50% [1]. Obesity is undesirable because it causes lifestyle diseases, such as hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes [2]. It also significantly increase health care costs [3]. This is why there has been a dramatic increase in bariatric operations over the last few decades. The two most common bariatric procedures are the roux-en-Y and gastric banding [4]. The operations cause weight loss via malabsorption and volume restriction. One aspect of bariatric surgery that often goes unreported is its effect on the lifestyle of patients. This editorial discusses the effect of bariatric surgery on diet, exercise and mental health.. Diet. Firstly, bariatric surgery has a positive effect on diet. This is because surgery forces patients to eat less food and to eat healthier foods. The ...
Morbid obesity (MO) is associated with several disorders such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, dyslipemia and degenerative arthropathy that require pharmacological treatment. Drug bioavailability and metabolism in patients with MO is altered compared to population controls. Bariatric surgery is the gold standard treatment for MO when conventional therapy fails.. Bariatric surgery techniques can modify drug absorption in MO patients. These modifications depend on the drug absorption characteristics and on the bariatric surgery technique used. The changes in weight and body composition caused by BS at middle term can alter drug bioavailability and metabolism. The kinetics of the normalization process in patients with MO after bariatric surgery is unknown. Objectives. To analyze the changes in drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics. To establish drug dosing criteria in the post-intervention period in patients with MO after bariatric surgery. To determine the relationship between changes in drug ...
DeTar Healthcare Systems surgical weight loss program was named a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.. To be named, DeTars weight loss program had a series of site inspections in which its surgical processes were examined closely by the society. Due to the increasing prevalence of morbid obesity, its inherent risks and the opportunities available to greatly improve the health of this patient population, we recognize the need to implement a systematic approach to improving quality, said William R. Blanchard, chief executive officer of the DeTar Healthcare System. Faced with clinical evidence that the most experienced and best-run bariatric surgery programs have by far the lowest rates of complications, the Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence program was created to recognize bariatric surgery centers that perform well and to help surgeons and hospitals continue to improve the quality and safety of care provided.. Citizens ...
Bariatric surgery. Is it right for you? Eat less, digest less and weigh less: Those are the promises of bariatric surgery. But this seemingly simple solution isnt right for everyone. This tool is designed to help you understand-and make smart decisions about-two types of bariatric surgery: gastric sleeve and gastric bypass.. Are you obese? If you answered yes. Obesity is generally defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. To be a good candidate for bariatric surgery, you have to have a BMI of 40 or higher or you need to have other health concerns. If you answered no. Bariatric surgery is recommended only for people who are obese. If you have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, you may be a good candidate for surgery. If your BMI is lower than 40, you may still be a good candidate, depending on other health factors. Do you have heart disease, sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes or another health issue your doctor says is related to your weight? If you answered yes. If your ...
The impact of bariatric surgery on diabetic retinopathy (DR) is unclear. DR might improve after surgery because of improvement in DR risk factors, but the rapid improvement in hyperglycemia after surgery could worsen DR.To assess the impact of bariatric surgery on the progression to sight-threatening DR (STDR) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and compare STDR progression in patients with T2DM who underwent bariatric surgery with a group of matched patients receiving routine care between January 2005 and December 2012 at a single center.Single-center university hospital.DR was assessed using 2×45-degree retinal images obtained from the English National Diabetic Eye Screening Programme. Only patients who had retinal images within 1 year before surgery and at least 1 image after surgery were included in the analysis. STDR was defined as the presence of preproliferative/proliferative DR, maculopathy, or laser treatment. The comparator group comprised patients with T2DM who ...
by Mark Schwerin. Oct. 15, 2011 , WMU News. KALAMAZOO--Heather Schild-Vaughan, a graduate student in the Western Michigan University Department of Sociology, will speak at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19, in Room 211 of the Bernhard Center on the modern cure for obesity, in a talk titled, Marketing Ethics on Bariatric Surgical Websites.. The number of obese people undergoing bariatric surgery annually is rising. Bariatric surgery covers a variety of procedures, including implanting a medical device in the stomach or the removal of a portion of the stomach.. The majority of bariatric surgical patients are women who experience a variety of social pressures in United States culture that may play various roles in their decisions to seek out information regarding bariatric surgery, Schild-Vaughn says. The Internet is one way individuals may access information about bariatric surgery from multiple sources.. But many of these sources are pro-bariatric surgical websites that are created by medical clinics ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Reoperative bariatric surgery. T2 - Lessons learned to improve patient selection and results. AU - Behrns, K. E.. AU - Smith, C. D.. AU - Kelly, K. A.. AU - Sarr, M. G.. PY - 1993. Y1 - 1993. N2 - Objective. The purpose of this study was to determine the spectrum of presentation, safety, and efficacy of operative bariatric surgery. Summary Background Data. The only lasting therapy for medically complicated clinically severe obesity is bariatric surgery. Several operative approaches have resulted in disappointing long-term weight loss or an unacceptable incidence of complications that require revisionary surgery. Methods. Sixty- one consecutive patients who underwent reoperative bariatric surgery from 1985 to 1990 were observed prospectively. One, two, or three previous bariatric procedures had been performed in 77%, 18%, and 5% of patients, respectively. Reoperation was required for unsatisfactory weight loss after gastroplasty or gastric bypass (61%), metabolic complications of ...
A new study, presented at the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) Annual Meeting on Womens Cancer in Tampa, Florida revealed that bariatric surgery may lower the risk of uterine cancer. Researchers found that obese women, who have undergone bariatric surgery to lose weight, had a 70 percent lower risk of uterine cancer. The risk becomes even lower when the weight is kept off.. Uterine cancer affected approximately 50,000 women in 2013 and is known to be the most common type of cancer of the female reproductive organs; however, obese women are even more prone to uterine cancer. They are two to four times more likely to be affected by it compared to those who have a normal weight.. Kristy Ward, MD, presented the findings of the study during the SGO meeting. She says, The retrospective analysis of the data proves that obesity increases a womans risk of cancer. This new study shows that bariatric surgery is associated with a clinically significant lower risk of uterine cancer, which is in ...
Introduction: Controversy exists as to the need for preoperative esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (EGD) for patients undergoing bariatric surgery. Specifically, do findings alter the medical and surgical management. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the role of preoperative EGD in the therapeutic strategy of bariatric surgery.. Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of consecutive patients undergoing bariatric surgery over an 18 month period (2006-2008). A total of 69 patients were reviewed and all patients underwent preoperative EGD prior to surgery.. Results: 14/69 patients underwent primary procedures (laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) or roux-en-y gastric bypass (LRYGB)) and 55/69 underwent a revision of a previous bariatric surgery to LSG or LRYGB. The findings included biopsy-proven H Pylori presence in 4 (2.7%), gastritis in 18 (12.4%), esophagitis in 14 (9.6%), hiatal hernias in 12 (8.2%), gastric polyps in 7 (4.8%), duodenal polyp in 2 (1.3%), and a duodenal lieomyoma in ...
The primary purpose of the current study was to examine the psychometric properties of the EDE-Q by assessing its factor structure and construct validity in a series of preoperative bariatric surgery candidates. The EFA and CFA with the EDE-Q items revealed a 12-item, 4-factor structure that did not replicate the original EDE-Q subscales. In fact, the four extracted factors were more comparable to those found by Peterson et al. (19) with data from a community sample of women with bulimic symptoms. Both the current authors and Peterson et al. (19) identified a similar body dissatisfaction/discomfort factor (which consisted of both Shape Concern and Weight Concern items), while both studies found that overvaluation of shape and weight loaded separately rather than with appearance concern-related items. Interestingly, however, while the Appearance Concern and Shape/Weight Overvaluation factors correlated strongly (r = 0.53) in the current study, Peterson and colleagues (19) two similar factors ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Impact of a National Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence Program on Medicare Expenditures. AU - Scally, Christopher P.. AU - Shih, Terry. AU - Thumma, Jyothi R.. AU - Dimick, Justin B.. PY - 2016/4/1. Y1 - 2016/4/1. N2 - Introduction: In 2006, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a national coverage decision restricting bariatric surgery to designated centers of excellence (COE). Although prior studies show mixed results on complications and reoperations, no prior studies evaluated whether this policy reduced spending for bariatric surgery. We sought to determine whether the coverage restriction to COE-designated hospitals was associated with lower payments from CMS. Methods: We utilized national Medicare claims data to examine 30-day episode payments for patients who underwent bariatric surgery from 2003 to 2010 (n = 72,117 patients). We performed an interrupted time series analysis, adjusting for patient factors, preexisting temporal trends, and ...
One sad consequence of the childhood obesity epidemic, is the ever increasing number of severely obese adolescents, for whom there is no realistic treatment option short of bariatric surgery.. While this raises all kinds of issues around the actual clinical management of these youngsters, an immediate concern is whether or not the surgery itself poses any immediate dangers.. This was assessed in a paper by Thomas Inge and colleagues from Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center, Ohio, published in JAMA Pediatrics.. The paper describes the perioperative outcomes (within 30 days of surgery) in 242 consecutive patients aged 19 years or younger who were approved to undergo bariatric surgery at five US academic referral centres, who agreed to participate in this prospective study.. The mean age of participants was 17 years and the median body mass index was 50, half of who had four or more comorbid conditions.. Participants underwent different surgical procedures, including laparoscopic ...

Bariatric surgery completed by an experienced surgery team is not considered dangerous. Nevertheless, as with any surgery, complications can occur and are, in some cases, severe. In very rare cases these complications can be fatal.. The «death rate» after bariatric surgeries is below 0.5%. This death rate after surgery has to be compared with the death rate due to excess weight. If compared in the long-term, the death rate for bariatric surgery patients is much lower than that for obese patients with a BMI , 35 who have not had surgery. Numerous long-term studies show that obesity is much more dangerous for your health than a surgical intervention due to the many secondary diseases that can develop. ...
2-year study indicates how gastric bypass reverses diabetes. In a substudy of the STAMPEDE trial (Surgical Therapy And Medications Potentially Eradicate Diabetes Efficiently), Cleveland Clinic researchers have found that gastric bypass surgery reverses diabetes by uniquely restoring pancreatic function in moderately obese patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes.. The two-year substudy evaluated the effects of bariatric surgery and intensive medical therapy on blood sugar levels, body composition, and pancreatic beta-cell function. Striking metabolic changes were observed in patients who underwent bariatric surgery compared with intensive medical therapy, particularly in the gastric bypass treatment group.. The substudy results extend the findings from our initial 12-month report that showed bariatric surgery can eliminate the need for diabetes medications in many obese patients with uncontrolled diabetes, said lead investigator Sangeeta Kashyap, M.D., an endocrinologist at Cleveland ...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with increased risk of severe comorbidities and mortality; its prevalence is increasing worldwide, linked with the increasing prevalence of obesity. Weight loss prevents the development of T2DM in obese subjects, and can reverse T2DM in morbid obesity. This paper reviews bariatric surgery as a means for prevention and treatment of T2DM and its complications, in comparison with medical treatment, and analyzes the possible mechanisms involved. In morbidly obese patients bariatric surgery results in stable weight loss and long-term reduction in incidence and prevalence of obesity-related comorbidities, especially T2DM. The efficacy of bariatric surgery in improving and normalizing glucose levels has been confirmed by a large number of studies, comparing surgery with medical therapy. When compared to each other, malabsorptive and mixed malabsorptive/restrictive surgery techniques have shown better outcomes than restrictive techniques in terms of T2DM ...

One of the most effective methods to tackle obesity and its related comorbidities is bariatric surgery. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometrial hyperplasia (EH), which are associated with increased risk of endometrial carcinoma, have been identified as potentially new indications for bariatric surgery. PCOS is the most common endocrine disorder in women in the reproductive age and is associated with several components of the metabolic syndrome such as obesity, insulin resistance and hypertension. EH is a pre-cancerous condition which arises in the presence of chronic exposure to estrogen unopposed by progesterone such as both in PCOS and obesity. The main bariatric procedures are Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. These procedures are well established and when correctly selected and performed by experienced bariatric surgeons, they can achieve significant weight loss and remission of obesity related co-morbidities. ...

Tranexamic acid reduces blood loss associated with various surgical procedures. Postoperative bleeding caused by dissection or bleeding of the enteric staple lines is a well-known complication following bariatric surgery. Reoperation in order to restore hemostasis is frequently necessary (up to 2.5% in literature). The effect of conservative therapy using tranexamic acid for postoperative hemorrhage after bariatric surgery is still very much a novel technique. The aim is to present our results (reoperation rate and thrombo-embolic complication rate) of tranexamic acid therapy for postoperative bleeding after bariatric surgery in comparison to those in existing literature. We retrospectively reviewed 1388 patients who underwent bariatric surgery (laparoscopic gastric bypass or laparoscopic gastric sleeve). Use of tranexamic acid, reoperation rate, transfusion rate and rate of thrombo-embolic complications were reviewed. Forty-five of 1388 (3.2%) total patients experienced significant hemorrhage after

Purpose. The aim of this study is to explore the role of attachment styles in obesity.. Material and Methods. The present study explored differences in insecure attachment styles between an obese sample waiting for bariatric surgery (n = 195) and an age, sex and height matched normal weight control group (n = 195). It then explored the role of attachment styles in predicting change in BMI 1 year post bariatric surgery (n = 143).. Results. The bariatric group reported significantly higher levels of anxious attachment and lower levels of avoidant attachment than the control non-obese group. Baseline attachment styles did not, however, predict change in BMI post surgery.. Conclusion. Attachment style is different in those that are already obese from those who are not. Attachment was not related to weight loss post surgery.. ...

The intragastric balloon is less invasive than traditional bariatric surgery. It involves inserting a tube down the esophagus into the stomach, so theres no surgical incision. A deflated balloon is then threaded down the tube, and once placed, blown up to the size of an orange and filled with sterile blue water. It can stay there for up to six months, at which point it is removed to prevent ruptures. This can be done multiple times if the patient continues to need the support the balloon provides. The balloon decreases the patients feelings of hunger, making them eat less and lose weight..

Objectives: Plasma pro-protein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) is a secreted protease that inhibits the activity of the LDL-receptor. Here, we determined the effect of bariatric surgery on plasma PCSK9 levels.. Methods: Sixty-five obese patients (BMI : 46.7 ± 6.5 kg/m2) were prospectively evaluated before and 6 months after bariatric surgery (sleeve-gastrectomy [n=53], Roux-en-Y gastric bypass [n=12], gastric banding [n=1]). Plasma PCSK9 were measured by ELISA and liver mRNA PCSK9 expression by Q-PCR.. Results: Before surgery, plasma PCSK9 was positively associated with LDL-C (r=0.59, P,0.0001), plasma triglycerides (TG) (r=0.48, P=0.0006) and fasting plasma glucose (FPG) (r=0.29 ; P=0.036), and negatively with BMI (r =-0.34, P=0.01). Plasma PCSK9 concentrations were increased in obese patients with metabolic syndrome (MetS) compared to those without MetS (295 ± 93 vs 210 ± 58 ng/ml, P,0.0001). Bariatric surgery did not alter plasma PCSK9 concentrations at 6 months. Interestingly, ...

The biliopancreatic diversion can be compared structurally with gastric bypass surgery. In contrast to a gastric bypass however, a much larger part of the small intestine is circumvented from the nutrition system. The resulting weight loss is mainly due to changing the length of the small intestine and therefore less energy carriers (fats, sugars, proteins) have the opportunity to be absorbed from the food into the body.. Biliopancreatic diversion has excellent long-term weight loss results. Most patients report a good quality of life after a biliopancreatic diversion. On average, 75 to 85 % of excess weight can be sustainably lost in the long term with this procedure. In addition, most secondary diseases linked with obesity can be greatly improved or cured. One disadvantage of the biliopancreatic diversion is the common occurrence of nutrition deficiencies and, therefore, we cannot recommend this operation routinely. However, the surgery is suitable for very severely obese patients (BMI ,50) as ...
The American Society For Metabolic And Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) recently issued an Updated Position Statement on Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy as a Bariatric
Another survey of Type II diabetic patients and weight loss surgery found that social media was used as a tool to spread information about patients experiences with bariatric surgery and its benefits. Business intelligence company Wool.labs used its technology WebDig to track every conversation accessible on the Internet and determined the trends among diabetes patients and healthcare providers as related to options to help manage diabetes including bariatric surgery. The study found diabetes patients who had tried bariatric surgery used social media outlets to advocate for the procedure and show how it had positively impacted their Type II diabetes. We believe that the patient wave of support in social media has helped push diabetes surgery into mainstream acceptance faster, said Michele Bennett, chief operating officer of Wool.labs. In this instance, we believe patients are leading the way and it will be interesting to see how far physicians and the industry will take it from here. A ...
BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyolysis is a relatively uncommon, severe complication of anesthesia and surgery in the morbidly obese. As the use of propofol-based anesthesia has been associated with an increased risk of rhabdomyolysis and metabolic acidosis, this pilot study was designed to assess the effect of propofol anesthesia on the incidence of rhabdomyolysis in morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery.

Patients with a BMI of 35 and higher, who are suffering the medical consequences of obesity, are often best treated with bariatric surgery as opposed to nonsurgical weight loss. Those who are morbidly obese are at a higher risk of mortality and such extreme obesity puts people at risk for life threatening disease, including heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes.. BMI Surgery has improved the lives of over 6,000 patients with life-changing surgeries including laparoscopic gastric bypass, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, ReShape, and Lap-Band and REALIZE gastric band systems at Silver Cross Hospital.

Following are the prime advantages of a bariatric or obesity surgery:. 1.High Blood Pressure can often be alleviated or eliminated by weight loss surgery.. 2. High Blood Cholesterol in 80% of patients can be alleviated or eliminated and in as little as 2-3 months post-operatively.. 3. Heart Disease in obeseindividuals is certainly more likely to be experienced when compared to persons who are of average weight; and adhere to a strict diet and exercise regimen. There is no hard and fast statistical data to definitively prove that weight loss surgery reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. However, common sense would dictate that if we can significantly reduce many of the co-morbidities that we experienced as someone who is obese, it is likely that our health may be much improved if not totally restored.. 4. Diabetes Mellitus can usually be corrected; and based upon numerous studies on Diabetes and the control of its complications, it is likely that the problems associated with diabetes will ...
All surgical procedures, even for patients in good health, carry some risk and can result in unpredictable complications. Post-bariatric patients are at increased risk for post-operative complications.. It is of the utmost importance to implement all preventive measures to mitigate the risks where possible, by reducing and eliminating common risk factors such as smoking, obesity and concomitant disease, which are open to treatment before the operation. Likewise, it is crucial that patients follow meticulously all indications given by the surgeon post-operatively; correct wound management (sterility), intake of prescribed medications, appropriate pressure garments etc.. Despite the above-mentioned preventive measures some complications may still occur, fortunately to a minor extent in the majority of cases. Systemic complications, e. g. anaesthesia-related, are very rare. The complications related to post-bariatric abdominoplasty are mainly:. ...
