Broadcasting from The Netherlands: Cognitive Benefits Seen Two Years After Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery (BS) is associated with cognitive benefits two years after surgery, according to a study published online Feb. 9 in JAMA Network Open.

Emma Custers, from Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, Netherlands, and colleagues examined the long-term associations of weight loss after BS with cognition and brain structure and perfusion in a cohort study involving 133 participants with severe obesity eligible for Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (aged 35 to 55 years).
