Bariatric Surgery: Surgical procedures aimed at affecting metabolism and producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.Obesity, Morbid: 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.Gastric Bypass: 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.Gastroplasty: 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.Weight Loss: Decrease in existing BODY WEIGHT.Biliopancreatic Diversion: 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.Obesity: 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).Bariatric Medicine: The discipline concerned with WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY.Jejunoileal Bypass: 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.Hyperoxaluria: Excretion of an excessive amount of OXALATES in the urine.Postoperative Complications: 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.Avitaminosis: A condition due to a deficiency of one or more essential vitamins. (Dorland, 27th ed)Preoperative Period: The period before a surgical operation.Anastomosis, Roux-en-Y: A Y-shaped surgical anastomosis of any part of the digestive system which includes the small intestine as the eventual drainage site.Laparoscopy: 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.Body Mass Index: 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)Treatment Outcome: 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.Postoperative Period: The period following a surgical operation.Bariatrics: Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.Gastrectomy: Excision of the whole (total gastrectomy) or part (subtotal gastrectomy, partial gastrectomy, gastric resection) of the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)Informed Consent By Minors: Voluntary authorization by a person not of usual legal age for diagnostic or investigative procedures, or for medical and surgical treatment. (from English A, Shaw FE, McCauley MM, Fishbein DB Pediatrics 121:Suppl Jan 2008 pp S85-7).Postoperative Care: The period of care beginning when the patient is removed from surgery and aimed at meeting the patient's psychological and physical needs directly after surgery. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)Gastric Fistula: Abnormal passage communicating with the STOMACH.Tooth Wear: Loss of the tooth substance by chemical or mechanical processesProspective Studies: 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.Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2: 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.Preoperative Care: 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)Malabsorption Syndromes: General term for a group of MALNUTRITION syndromes caused by failure of normal INTESTINAL ABSORPTION of nutrients.Follow-Up Studies: 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.Anti-Obesity Agents: 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.Retrospective Studies: 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.Perioperative Period: The time periods immediately before, during and following a surgical operation.Glucagon-Like Peptide 1: A peptide of 36 or 37 amino acids that is derived from PROGLUCAGON and mainly produced by the INTESTINAL L CELLS. GLP-1(1-37 or 1-36) is further N-terminally truncated resulting in GLP-1(7-37) or GLP-1-(7-36) which can be amidated. These GLP-1 peptides are known to enhance glucose-dependent INSULIN release, suppress GLUCAGON release and gastric emptying, lower BLOOD GLUCOSE, and reduce food intake.Patient Selection: Criteria and standards used for the determination of the appropriateness of the inclusion of patients with specific conditions in proposed treatment plans and the criteria used for the inclusion of subjects in various clinical trials and other research protocols.Peptide YY: A 36-amino acid peptide produced by the L cells of the distal small intestine and colon. Peptide YY inhibits gastric and pancreatic secretion.Gastrointestinal Hormones: HORMONES secreted by the gastrointestinal mucosa that affect the timing or the quality of secretion of digestive enzymes, and regulate the motor activity of the digestive system organs.Gastric Balloon: An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.Risk Factors: An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.Comorbidity: The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.Reoperation: A repeat operation for the same condition in the same patient due to disease progression or recurrence, or as followup to failed previous surgery.Secondary Care: Specialized healthcare delivered as a follow-up or referral from a PRIMARY CARE provider.Nutrition Disorders: Disorders caused by nutritional imbalance, either overnutrition or undernutrition.Deficiency Diseases: A condition produced by dietary or metabolic deficiency. The term includes all diseases caused by an insufficient supply of essential nutrients, i.e., protein (or amino acids), vitamins, and minerals. It also includes an inadequacy of calories. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)Malnutrition: An imbalanced nutritional status resulted from insufficient intake of nutrients to meet normal physiological requirement.Thiamine Deficiency: A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of THIAMINE in the diet, characterized by anorexia, irritability, and weight loss. Later, patients experience weakness, peripheral neuropathy, headache, and tachycardia. In addition to being caused by a poor diet, thiamine deficiency in the United States most commonly occurs as a result of alcoholism, since ethanol interferes with thiamine absorption. In countries relying on polished rice as a dietary staple, BERIBERI prevalence is very high. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1171)Nutritional Physiological Phenomena: The processes and properties of living organisms by which they take in and balance the use of nutritive materials for energy, heat production, or building material for the growth, maintenance, or repair of tissues and the nutritive properties of FOOD.Protein Deficiency: A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of proteins in the diet, characterized by adaptive enzyme changes in the liver, increase in amino acid synthetases, and diminution of urea formation, thus conserving nitrogen and reducing its loss in the urine. Growth, immune response, repair, and production of enzymes and hormones are all impaired in severe protein deficiency. Protein deficiency may also arise in the face of adequate protein intake if the protein is of poor quality (i.e., the content of one or more amino acids is inadequate and thus becomes the limiting factor in protein utilization).

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

The general acceptance of bariatric surgery has enabled obese people worldwide to once again lead normal, productive lives. These surgeries are generally categorized as a group of operative interventions used to treat morbid obesity, a condition which was only recently recognized as a true disease. Although many people dont understand the implications of severe obesity, medical problems related to obesity may be severely disabling and cause life threatening conditions. Bariatric surgery is not something that should be rushed. The operations are reserved for patients who are severely overweight and who understand both the risks of the operation and the benefits. One must commit to a thorough change of lifestyle both before and after the surgery. Additionally, a doctor needs to recommend it - as it is not cosmetic surgery and doesnt involve the removal of fat. Bariatric surgeries generally work in two ways - either by limiting the amount of food you can physically put into your stomach, or by
THURSDAY, Oct. 3, 2019 (HealthDay News) - Implementation of a large-scale, enhanced recovery project for bariatric surgery is feasible and results in a decrease in extended length of stay (ELOS), according to a study published online Sept. 23 in Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases..

Obesity is a serious ailment that can drastically impact ones quality of life. It puts you at risk of serious ailments that include chronic heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, bone and joint disease, problems with sleep and certain types of cancer. Research shows that individuals affected by obesity are often resistant to the weight loss results that come from regular weight loss option such as exercise and diet management, meaning in the long term, individuals suffering from severe obesity need stronger alternatives to improve health. This is where Bariatric Surgery can become a lifesaver. It is a type of surgery that enables weight loss. It works by reducing the amount of food your stomach can hold, reducing the number of calories your intestines absorb, or both. Bariatric surgery may often be perceived as cosmetic in nature but the benefits of the surgery run far deeper and are often not focused on aesthetics at all. ...

There is some uncertainty in these results as investigators only looked at 11 different studies to compile this research and these studies were relatively small with up to only a 2-year follow-up. Investigators consider these factors to be limitations for this research. Furthermore, each study was conducted under different conditions. Five studies focused specifically on patients with type 2 diabetes, three studies contained only patients who had previously tried to lose weight, and one study only focused on patients with obstructive sleep apnea. However, investigators claim that the variety of study conditions is a strong point of this research since it shows that bariatric surgery was consistently more effective than non-surgical treatments, even across a wide range of subgroups and study conditions. This research can thus be considered a comprehensive comparison of bariatric surgery and non-surgical treatments, though more studies must be conducted in order to further prove the greater ...

Background The promising postsurgical weight loss and remission of type 2 diabetes (T2D) from bariatric surgery can be attributed to modified eating physiology after surgical procedures. We sought to investigate the changes in the parameters of consumption behaviors and appetite sensations induced by a mixed meal tolerance test, and to correlate these alterations with age, body mass index, C-peptide levels, and duration of T2D 1 year after bariatric surgery. Methods A total of 16 obese patients with T2D who underwent mini-gastric bypass (GB) and 16 patients who underwent sleeve gastrectomy (SG) were enrolled in this study and evaluated using a mixed meal tolerance test one year after surgery. A visual analogue scale was used for scoring appetite sensation at different time points. The area under the curve (AUC) and the incremental or decremental AUC (ΔAUC) were compared between the two groups. Results One year after surgery, a decreasing trend in the consumption time was observed in the GB group

An international study, led by researchers at the Medical Research Council Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit (MRC LEU) at the University of Southampton, has found that obese patients who undergo bariatric surgery are not at an increased risk of broken bones in the first few years after the operation.. However, the study, published in the British Medical Journal today (DATE) has shown that there is a possibility of an increase in fracture risk after three to five years.. Generally, a higher Body Mass Index (BMI) protects the bone against most types of fracture because a higher BMI is associated with increased bone density. Additionally there is more protection around the bones.. Studies have shown that weight loss can lead to a reduction of bone density and specifically studies have suggested that bone density is lost after bariatric surgery; however no previous work has been able to investigate whether such changes might result in an increased risk of fracture relative to a control ...

Obesity has grown to epidemic proportions, and in lack of efficient life-style and medical treatments, the bariatric surgeries are performed in rising numbers. The most common surgery is the Gastric Bypass (GBP) surgery, with the Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (DS) as an option for the most extreme cases with a BMI,50 kg/m2.. In paper I 20 GBP-patients were examined during the first post-operative year regarding the natriuretic peptide, NT-ProBNP, which is secreted from the cardiac ventricles. Levels of NT-ProBNP quickly increased during the first post-surgery week, and later established itself on a higher level than pre-surgery.. In paper II we report of 5 patient-cases after GBP-surgery with severe problems with postprandial hypoglycaemia that were successfully treated with GLP-1-analogs. The effect of treatment could be observed both symptomatically and in some cases using continuous glucose measuring systems (CGMS).. In paper III three groups of subjects; 15 post-GBP ...
Disparity in bariatric surgery across Canada likely reflects varying priorities and policies between provinces. For example, higher surgery rates in Quebec may be the result of the pioneering work in bariatric surgery at Laval and McGill universities. In contrast, a more recent surge in bariatric surgeries in Ontario with a $75 million investment in the Ontario Bariatric Network was largely driven by the urgent need to repatriate the rising number of Ontario residents who leave the province to receive surgery in the United States, with the costs of the operation for these patients covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (1660 in fiscal year 2008/09).7 Despite this increase, restricted access to bariatric surgery across Canada still results in wait times that may exceed several years, with substantial health and economic consequences for patients living with severe obesity.6. Given that the benefits and cost-effectiveness of bariatric surgery are well established, one can only speculate as ...
Summary Obesity is considered a worldwide pandemic. Morbidly obese patients are at risk of developing comorbidity such as diabetes mellitus type 2, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. The mechanisms behind the development of such complications in morbidly obese patients are still not fully understood, but low-grade inflammation and visceral adiposity are both involved. Effective treatment that leads to a significant weight loss can improve and/or repeal these comorbidities. In this prospective study we have investigated what impact lifestyle intervention followed by bariatric surgery has on markers of glucose metabolism, inflammation and coagulation. 134 morbidly obese patients (who underwent lifestyle intervention followed by bariatric surgery) and 36 lean subjects (admitted for elective laparoscopic procedures) were included in 4 different studies. The morbidly obese patients were followed one year after surgery. The 36 lean subjects served as a control group. We have shown that markers ...

Randomized trials designed to assess the impact of bariatric surgery in patients with obesity and hypertension are needed.. METHODS: In this randomized, single-center, nonblinded trial, we included patients with hypertension (using ≥2 medications at maximum doses or ,2 at moderate doses) and a body mass index between 30.0 and 39.9 kg/m2. Patients were randomized to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass plus medical therapy or medical therapy alone. The primary end point was reduction of ≥30% of the total number of antihypertensive medications while maintaining systolic and diastolic blood pressure ,140 mm Hg and 90 mm Hg, respectively, at 12 months.. RESULTS: We included 100 patients (70% female, mean age 43.8±9.2 years, mean body mass index 36.9±2.7 kg/m2), and 96% completed follow-up. Reduction of ≥30% of the total number of antihypertensive medications while maintaining controlled ...

In order to perform surgery for reducing weight is an important decision. You must be aware of the risks and side effects of bariatric or weight loss surgery before undergoing the surgical decision. Various risks for weight loss surgeries are:. 1. Blood Loss. Bleeding is such a risk which is associated with any surgical procedure. In weight loss surgery the risk of bleeding is minimal, but sometimes the various blood vessels in the body can bleed several hours after the procedure is completed. This at many times can lead to internal hemorrhage.. 2. Gallstones. One important risk factor, which the obese patient can have after performing bariatric surgery, is the growth of gallstones. About 40% of the patient can have gallstones from bariatric surgery. Sudden weight loss in the body can lead to development of gallstones.. 3. Cardiac complications. Patient who have severe heart and lung complications and who are very obese can have chance of stroke, failure of the lungs as a result of the ...
In the program right now, less than half of those who complete an initial visit eventually undergo surgery," said Noel Williams, MD, director of the Penn Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program. "If we can set our patients up with a resource that will break down the mountain of steps and tracking into easier to manage pieces, we believe they will be more likely to achieve their goals. Since we cannot see our patients every day, weve created a platform where our clinicians can be there to support them even after they leave the clinic.". In the days and weeks following surgery, app users will be prompted to share their symptoms, including pain levels. If a patient reports that they are experiencing higher than expected pain levels, the patient is prompted to contact the office, and the clinicians are notified on the clinician app. If patients and the team can proactively identify worsening pain, and see the patient in clinic right away, the team is hoping they can reduce hospital readmissions, ...
The US Endocrine Society has urged multidisciplinary support for those who undergo bariatric surgery. The team will include primary care physician, endocrinologist or gastroenterologist.
This thesis investigates a contextual behavioral approach for obesity surgery patients. In a contextual approach a behavior is interpreted as inseparable from its current and historical context. Candidates for bariatric surgery often have a history of self-stigma, body dissatisfaction and eating for emotional relief. Despite losing a large amount of weight post surgery, psychological problems may still be present for some patients. One possible common underlying process observed in body concerns and eating patterns is experiential avoidance. Experiential avoidance is defined as; any attempt to avoid, change, or control unwanted thoughts and feelings when so doing causes harm.. Though a multidisciplinary team is recommended for post-surgical care, there are few studies evaluating the psychological treatment of patients undergoing bariatric surgery. In this thesis a protocol based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), was developed and implemented, partly via the Internet, in a clinical ...
For millions of Americans struggling with obesity and considering surgical procedures to achieve weight loss and alleviate obesity-related health complications, a new study adds weight to the health benefits attributed to bariatric surgery.
Guest chef, Judith Balk, M.D., at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, will host a dinner party for those who have had or are considering bariatric surgery.
The present study revealed slightly different outcomes and complication rates between the traditional laparoscopic approach and the robotic one. Data from a RCT collected after laparoscopic gastric bypass showed that 1-year mortality is about 0.9%, Major perioperative complications (hemorrhage, obstruction, internal herniation, or renal insufficiency) occur in 6.3% of patients and late (, 30 days postoperatively) major complications, more often stenosis or strictures, in 26.1% of them [36]. The results of this review demonstrated that the robotic approach is safe and feasible in all types of bariatric surgical procedures. The overall post-operative complication rate was very low; in particular the anastomotic leak rate (gastro-jejunostomy and jejuno-jejunostomy in RYGB) and the gastric staple line leak rate were very low and no deaths were reported. The analysis of these selected trials on the robotic bariatric surgery did not show any significant results about the bariatric and the metabolic ...
Bariatric surgery transforms the health and lives of thousands of people every year. This is a treatment option for people living with morbid obesity, especially those who havent had long-term weight loss success through other means including diet and exercise. Until recently, bariatric surgeons used only an open technique, which required a long incision and traditional medical instruments. More recently, minimally invasive* techniques have been introduced allowing surgeons to perform the same operation, but with much smaller incisions. This can result in faster recovery, less pain, and less scarring.. Doctors Steven Webb, John D. DePeri, and Husain Abbas are exemplary professionals within the bariatric field. Our bariatric team is a caring and compassionate group of experts, and we treat each of our patients with respect and the attention needed to ensure success during and after the weight loss procedure. We place an emphasis on patient education because we know that a well-informed patient ...
Bariatric surgery is carried out to help obese patients achieve weight loss. This surgery is designed for those patients who have failed to lose weight through traditional means such as dieting and exercise. The Body Mass Index of patients who are appropriate for bariatric surgery is either 35 or above with obesity related comorbidities or greater 40. The surgery is carried out to help patients from falling prey to debilitating diseases such as hypertension and obesity. For the surgery to be completely successful, the patients should be prepared to follow a diet and exercise plan after the surgery.

Background Increasing numbers of severely obese young people undergo bariatric surgery in the USA with reports of 58-73 % of excess weight lost after one year. In 2006, NICE suggested considering surgery for young people in exceptional circumstances. We present 5 patients operated upon between 2005-2011 at our centre focussing on the ethical and clinical dilemmas faced when establishing a service.. Case series/methods Five patients (4 male) aged 14-16 years (mean age 15.25) underwent bariatric surgery. Initial cases were discussed by the local clinical ethics committee prior to the procedures. Mean pre-operative BMI was 60.3 kg/m2 and BMI SDS + 4.3. Co-morbidities included hypertension, insulin resistance, obstructive sleep apnoea, limited mobility and psychosocial issues. All 5 patients had prior involvement with local weight management services with no success. Three of the patients had tried drug treatment with orlistat and/or sibutramine (before it was withdrawn). Two patients were ...

Today we know that Type 2 diabetes resolves or is improved in the majority of patients who undergo bariatric surgery. There are hormonal changes that occur on the day of surgery, before any weight loss has occurred, that can immediately improve glycemic control. Thus, it seems the stomach does more than just signal hunger. It also modulates the balance between insulin and glucagon and their role in blood sugar control through a complex pathway that involves other hormones such as GLP-1, Ghrelin, and peptide YY. While the exact mechanism is not known, scientists suspect a hormonal pathway modified by bariatric surgery promotes resolution of diabetes independent of weight loss. ...
When given a choice, an individual will always select what is most advantageous to him. A problem arises if the insurance carrier has not anticipated and budgeted for that choice. If an individual is interested in bariatric surgery and one of his options is a plan with unlimited coverage and no controls on utilization, he is likely to choose that option.. The result can be utilization and cost much greater than budgeted. To provide an affordable bariatric surgery benefit, it is imperative an insurance company anticipate and budget accordingly.. Some potential methods of avoiding adverse selection, according to an issue brief by the National Business Group on Health, are:. Step therapy: The individual is required to participate in step therapy over a period, usually six months, to identify appropriate candidates for surgery. Step therapy involves the individual "stepping" through a number of increasingly aggressive treatments before becoming eligible for surgery, which is the most aggressive. ...

AIM AND OBJECTIVE: The objective was to explore and describe patients daily life experiences five years after gastric bypass surgery.. BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery markedly decreases body weight. Previous studies describe positive consequences, as well as physical, social and emotional challenges during the first few years after surgery. An understanding of how patients adjust to and cope with postsurgical changes in the long term is crucial to help them obtain a successful outcome after bariatric surgery.. METHOD: A qualitative method was employed. In-depth interviews with 10 men and women were conducted five years after bariatric surgery in a Norwegian hospital.. RESULTS: One overarching theme - a multitude of daily life changes following bariatric surgery - was developed based on three main themes: relational aspects related to weight loss, the new body and changes in self-esteem. Six sub-themes are described.. CONCLUSION: Those who undergo gastric bypass surgery experience enormous changes ...

Introduction Obesity is epidemic in the United States and worldwide. The adverse effects of obesity on health and longevity were formally recognized and established by the National Institutes of Health in 1985.[1] Metabolic and bariatric surgery have been shown to be safe, and remain the most effective and durable treatments for clinically severe obesity with a documented reduction in all-cause mortality and long-term survival benefit.[2] Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) was the most common bariatric procedure performed in the United States from 2004 to 2012, after which sleeve gastrectomy (SG) became the most common procedure.[3] Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy was originally designed as the first step procedure in a duodenal switch or a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure, but has gained popularity as a stand-alone procedure given its similar results in weight loss and resolution in comorbid conditions.[4] As worldwide obesity rates and, in turn bariatric procedures increase, ...
We investigated the changes in incretin levels and effect after RY-GBP in patients with morbid obesity and type 2 diabetes. Our main findings are that the release of incretin after oral glucose is of greater magnitude and the incretin effect on insulin secretion is markedly improved 1 month after RY-GBP.. It has long been hypothesized that the incretins could play a role in the marked immediate improvements of diabetes control observed after bariatric surgery (32). Limited data (23-25,27,33) suggested that the improvement in insulin secretion after bariatric surgery occurs rapidly. Thus, it may not be wholly accounted for by weight loss but could be a consequence of changes of the enteroinsular axis, particularly in the incretins. However, most of the studies to date have been cross-sectional (20,23,24) or measured only fasting levels of incretins (22,25).. In our study, fasting and glucose-stimulated levels of GLP-1 and GIP were not different between patients before the surgery and control ...
