USA: Bariatric Surgery for Severe Obesity Markedly Improves Cardiometabolic Health

Metabolic surgery for the treatment of severe obesity leads to considerable cardiometabolic improvements, according to a study published online March 14 in the Journal of the Endocrine Society.

Lei Wang, from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and colleagues examined cardiometabolic improvements after metabolic surgery in a large multiracial cohort, with 7,804 patients (aged 20 to 79 years; median body mass index, 46.4 kg/m2) undergoing first-time metabolic surgery from 1999 to 2022.
