Background Fatty liver in obese patients increases the technical difficulty of bariatric surgery. Pre-operative weight loss with a very-low-calorie diet (VLCD) is commonly used to facilitate surgery. Few studies have quantified the systemic effect of rapid pre-operative weight loss on body composition. The objective of this study is to evaluate body composition changes in bariatric surgery patients undergoing a VLCD.

Background Selenium is an essential element that plays a vital role in maintaining human health and its deficiency can lead to cardiovascular and hypothyroidism complications. In this context, the main concern is about morbidly obese patients who undergo a Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB). Although RYGB leads to 60–70% excess weight loss, micronutrient deficiencies are common after this procedure and can be problematic if not promptly detected. This review will therefore examine the evidence rega...

Introduction Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is proven to be a safe and effective treatment option for obesity in the long term. However, in recent decades, LAGB prevalence progressively decreased worldwide principally due to the incidence and the management of the complications. Understanding the optimal management of the complications becomes therefore of primary importance. The aim of this study is to describe a personal technical, laparoscopic solution of band erosion and to a...

Introduction Bariatric surgery has been shown to be effective in reducing weight and has benefits, such as lowering blood pressure. An increase in urinary sodium excretion has been suggested as a possible mechanism. This study explored changes in sodium excretion and their correlation with blood pressure after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

Background Smoking has been associated with postoperative complications and mortality in bariatric surgery. The evidence for smoking is based on self-report and medical charts, which can lead to misclassification and miscalculation of the associations. Determination of cotinine can objectively define nicotine exposure. We determined the accuracy of self-reported smoking compared to cotinine measurement in three phases of the bariatric surgery trajectory.
