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.
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 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 narrative review summarizes recent advances in understanding the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of critical limb ischemia.
This cohort study investigates whether a program that focuses on 8 major guideline-recommended risk-management therapies reduces cardiovascular and limb events in patients with peripheral arterial disease.
This single-center study of patients undergoing vascular surgery determines the association between kidney disease and long-term postoperative cardiovascular-specific mortality.
