The researchers will conduct a study for avoiding the metabolic syndrome in morbid obese patients. Thus, the aim of the present will be determine the effects of a resistance training programme (RT) in preventing or attenuating metabolic syndrome (MetS) in patients with morbid obesity. A second aim will be report the prevalence of non-responders in terms of improvements in MetS markers and other co-variables considered.
In this study to planned to research the efficacy of low-flow anesthesia on patients undergoing sleeve gastrectomy due to morbid obesity on respiratory functions after surgery by examining FEV1 and FVC values and FEV1/FVC ratio.
The primary objective is to measure the impact of this treatment for patients with obesity of class I, or class II without co-morbidity, assessed by excess weight loss (EWL)>25%. The secondary objectives are to measure total body weight loss >5%, BMI reduction, tolerance, complications related to this technique in this indication. This study is a prospective, pilot, bi-center safety and efficacy study. 30 patients will be enrolled between APHM, Marseille et CHU L'Archet Nice
The main aim of this study was to examine whether introducing a work intervention into a traditional lifestyle rehabilitation program for persons with BMI above 30, would affect the participants' ability to work and their lifestyle change. The investigators wanted to find out how the participants experienced their health, workability and work capacity, quality of life, diet and self-efficacy before and during the intervention
Morbidly obese patients undergoing either Roux en Y gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy were examined preoperatively, 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery. On each occasion, anthropometric data were collected, resting metabolic rate was measured, and the patients underwent a panel of cardiovascular examinations (heart rate variability, baroreflex sensitivity, heart ultrasound). Following that, they consumed a test meal and completed visual analog scales for the subjective assessment of hunger and fullness every 30 minutes for 3 hours. At the same time points, blood samples were collected for the consequent measurement of glucose, insulin, lipids, and gastrointestinal hormones.
Surgical management of Morbid Obesity is increasingly frequent. A low-calorie diet is recommended with the main goal of reducing intrahepatic fat infiltration, fat tissue and making easier the surgery. Information the use pharmacological interventions during the preoperative period in this population are rare.
150 morbidly obese patients divided into to equal groups, group A underwent single anastomosis sleeve jejunal bypass with biliary limb length of 200 cm from the duodenal-jejunal flexure and group B underwent mini gastric bypass, group C underwent sleeve gastrectomy. All patients were followed for at least one year. all cases were evaluated as regard BMI, complications, nutritional status and obesity-related comorbidities.
With the development of technology, the safety of anesthesia devices and the progression of monitoring techniques affect the anesthetic management. There are some disadvantages such as high cost of inhalation anesthetics and long postoperative recovery time. The effects of total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA), which has been used for many years and whose positive aspects are well known, on antioxidant system in high risk patients such as morbid obese should be investigated. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of desflurane anesthesia and total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) on the antioxidant system in morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery.
bilateral continuous erector spinae plane blockade may represent a valuable alternatives to thoracіc epidurals analgaesіa in treatment of thoracic neuropathic pain. There were 3 cases reported in 2017 suggested that the erector spinae plane block provides visceral abdominal analgesia in bariatric surgery and at end of the report they recommended further clinical investigation. The investigators hypothesіzed that performing the erector spinae plane (ESP) block at T7 would provide effective abdominal analgaesіa іn patients undergone laparoscopic bariatric surgery. The investigators aimed to compare the analgesic effect of erector spinae plane block and opioid based general anesthesia for laparoscopic bariatric surgeries.
The prevalence of obesity in Spain is about 21.6%. The discouraging results provided by dietary treatment, together with the lack of funding for pharmacological treatment, have led to the progressive use of bariatric surgery (CB). Besides weight loss, CB associates a beneficial effect on metabolic comorbidities. However, 25-30% of operated patients present a weight response considered inappropriate, they do not resolve their comorbidities and/or present a weight-regain shortly after surgery. Therefore, predictive strategies are necessary to allow a correct selection of obese patients who are candidates for CB. The main hypothesis of the study is that various factors such as psychopathological profile, body composition and metabolic alterations related to morbid obesity can influence the response to bariatric surgery.
