Deficiencies after Biliopancreatic Diversion

2020-01-23T09:28:15+00:00

Worldwide use of the Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPD) as a bariatric procedure to treat obesity is still limited due to its relative technical difficulty and demanding follow-up. However, BPD achieves better results than other bariatric operations in the long term of 10-15 years. This study extends the long-term results with another 5 years and reports the 20-year outcomes of 2615 patients undergoing open BPD with Duodenal Switch (DS).

Iodine absorption after bariatric surgery

2020-01-06T15:12:27+00:00

Bariatric surgery is often accompanied by malnutrition of several vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Iodine is a trace element, needed for synthesis of thyroid hormones. Since iodine is absorbed from the intestinal tract, patients after bariatric surgery are hypothetically at risk of malabsorption. This study aimed to estimate the daily absorption of iodine for patients after bariatric surgery in which several parts of intestine were bypassed.

Timing of pregnancy after bariatric surgery: preliminary results

2019-12-09T14:46:35+00:00

Current recommendations indicate to avoid pregnancy 12 to 18 months postoperatively due to active weight loss and increased risk of nutritional deficiencies. However, no high-quality evidence supports this recommendation. A study was conducted to examine the association between surgery-to-conception interval and pregnancy and neonatal complications, gestational weight gain and nutritional status.

Long-term outcomes after Biliopancreatic Diversion

2019-12-09T15:15:31+00:00

A Biliopancreatic Diversion without (BPD) or with Duodenal Switch (BPD/DS) is performed relatively infrequently. The risks and benefits are still debated, since only minimal data on the long-term efficacy and safety of BPD/DS are available. To investigate the long-term effects, a retrospective cohort study was conducted among 100 BPD or BPD/DS patients.

Supplementation after a Biliopancreatic Diversion

2020-01-06T12:35:38+00:00

Within 3 years after a Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPD) or BPD with Duodenal Switch (BPD/DS), up to 90% of all patients develop nutritional deficiencies. With this study, Homan and colleagues increase the knowledge needed to develop supplementation recommendations and doses to maintain nutritional health after BDP or BDP/DS.
