This randomized clinical trial assesses the efficacy and safety of standard gastric bypass vs distal gastric bypass in patients with a BMI of 50 to 60.
This cohort study describes eating behaviors and weight control 3 years after bariatric surgery in severely obese adults.
This cohort study examines whether metabolomics can distinguish healthy volunteers from trauma patients and quantify changes in catabolic metabolites over time after traumatic injury.
This randomized clinical trial reports that bariatric surgery with 2 years of an adjunctive low-level lifestyle intervention resulted in more disease remission than did lifestyle intervention alone for obese participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
This randomized clinical trial reports that in patients with a body mass index of 50 to 60 kg/m2, duodenal switch resulted in greater weight loss and greater improvements in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose 5 years after surgery compared with gastric bypass while improvements in health-related quality of life were similar.
This meta-analysis reports that compared with alternative analgesic techniques, epidurals may be associated with superior pain control. However, this does not translate into improved recovery or reduced morbidity when used within an enhanced recovery protocol.
Courcoulas et al determine feasibility of a randomized clinical trial and compare initial outcomes of bariatric surgery and a structured weight loss program for treating type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Halperin et al test the feasibility of methods to conduct a larger multisite trial to determine the long-term effect of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery compared with an intensive diabetes medical and weight management program for type 2 diabetes in obese patients.
