Background: Obesity is associated with multiple diseases. Bariatric surgery is the most effective therapy for severe obesity that cannot only reduce body weight but also obesity-associated...
Bariatric-metabolic surgery is effective in treating the cluster of conditions forming the metabolic syndrome, strictly associated with NAFLD and NASH. Recently, we and other authors have ...
Obesity and its associated diseases are increasing worldwide. However, the mechanisms behind the development of obesity is not fully understood. There is evidence that intestinal bacteria ...
Observational studies suggest that bariatric surgery is the most effective intervention for weight loss. Comparative effectiveness of Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) and Sleeve Gastrectomy...
In order to evaluate the difference in beta cell mass in patients with and without complete resolution of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) after Roux en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) we aim to co...
Evidence shows that surgery for severe obesity in adults improves health and psychological functioning, and is cost-effective. Data on bariatric surgery for adolescents with severe obesity are extreme...
Patients undergoing Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery elicit striking loss of body weight. Anatomical re-structuring of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, leading to reduced caloric intake and cha...
Fistula development is a serious complication after bariatric surgery. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the efficacy of fistula closure and complications associated with en...
