Investigators assessed the efficacy of ursodeoxycholic acid in preventing symptomatic gallstone disease among patients undergoing bariatric surgery.
Investigators reviewed the effects of the Elipse intragastric balloon on weight loss, waist circumference, metabolic profile, tolerability, and adverse events.
Investigators compared the short-term surgical outcomes and long-term oncologic safety of robotic vs laparoscopic gastrectomy in patients with gastric cancer.
Investigators assessed long-term outcomes of sleeve gastrectomy vs gastric bypass in patients undergoing bariatric surgery.
Investigators tested the safety and efficacy of the osculating circles gastroplasty technique for use during bariatric surgeries.
Investigators compared 4-year health care expenditures between Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy.
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) are surgical procedures that can assist people with obesity and type 2 diabetes avoid additional health complications. A study sought to determine which procedure offered greater reduction in major adverse cardiovascular events in people with type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Obesity is caused by an imbalance of calories consumed vs calories expended, but researchers say there are additional risk factors at work as well.
Hypothyroidism is common in patients with obesity, but there are no clear data regarding whether patients who are taking levothyroxine should have their dosing regimen adjusted following weight loss after undergoing bariatric surgery.
Researchers compared bone health in patients with obesity following roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy.
Type 2 diabetes often goes into remission following weight loss after bariatric surgery. Researchers investigated whether greater amounts of weight loss were associated with higher rates of disease remission.
Investigators compared the short-term surgical and long-term oncologic safety of robotic gastrectomy vs laparoscopic gastrectomy for patients with gastric cancer.
Researchers sought to identify variables associated with vascular improvement after bariatric surgery and determine how sex, race, and metabolic status are associated with vascular outcomes.
Researchers assessed how gut microbiota changes are associated with anthropometric, metabolic, and inflammatory profiles following metabolic surgery in adults with type 2 diabetes and mild obesity.
Researchers compared long-term survival outcomes of severely obese patients who underwent metabolic–bariatric surgery with those who received usual care.
Investigators compared bariatric surgery with a community weight management intervention in ability to reduce intracranial pressure among patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
RCT findings reveal intraoperative caffeine’s potential to reduce opioid consumption and improve recovery after surgery.
Investigators reviewed the outcomes of STRETTA in patients with refractory GERD who underwent prior gastric surgery.
Researchers analyzed the association between anesthesiologist volume and postoperative outcomes following complex GI cancer surgery.
