2016-11-30 15:45:22 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to propose a multi-dimensional score to predict those patients undergoing bariatric surgeries who will be in need for postoperative ICU admission.


A multi-dimensional score of 7 risk factors was proposed which may help in identifying morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric surgeries who will need admission to a critical care unit postoperatively for follow up.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical procedures aimed at producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.

Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.

Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
