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 regarding selenium deficiency in RYGB patients, as well its nutritional treatment methods.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is the gold standard in bariatric surgery. One-anastomosis gastric bypass (OAGB) has been reported to have equivalent or better weight loss, with added advantages of be...
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) produces greater weight loss compared with a purely restrictive procedure such as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB).
OAGB-MGB emerged as a standard procedure, albeit RYGB remains the most frequently performed gastric bypass. Comparative studies are scarce.
The da Vinci Surgical System family remains the most widely used surgical robotic system for laparoscopy. Data about gastric bypass surgery with the Xi Surgical System are not available yet. We compar...
Roux-en-Y-gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery is an effective treatment for morbid obesity. A possible overlooked side effect is negative bone metabolic consequences.
Several retrospective studies have shown same efficiency in regard to weight loss, with a lower rate of complications for the laparoscopic mini gastric bypass (LMGB) compared to Roux-en-Y ...
Prospective randomized clinical trial aiming to compare laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG) with primary outcome on excess weight loss, and secondary o...
The goal of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy (weight loss and metabolic changes) of long (150 cm) versus very long (250cm) Roux alimentary limb gastric bypass in superobese...

The aim of this prospective randomized controlled trial is to compare the two procedures One-anastomosis gastric Bypass/Mini-gastric Bypass (OAGB/MGB) and Roux-en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) i...
A selenium compound used as a source of SELENIUM, especially for patients that develop selenium deficiency following prolonged PARENTERAL NUTRITION.
Unstable isotopes of selenium that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Se atoms with atomic weights 70-73, 75, 79, 81, and 83-85 are radioactive selenium isotopes.
A group of proteins that covalently attach to selenium or SELENIUM-containing compounds.
Inorganic compounds formed through the oxidation of selenium.
Inorganic compounds that contain selenium as an integral part of the molecule.
