  • Behavioral and Pharmacotherapy Weight Loss Interventions to Prevent Obesity-Related Morbidity and Mortality in Adults: An Updated Systematic Review for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force [BOOK]

  • CONCLUSIONS: We found that behavior-based weight-loss interventions with or without weight loss medications resulted in more weight loss than usual care conditions. The degree of weight loss we observed with the behavior-based weight loss interventions in the current review is slightly smaller but consistent in magnitude with our 2011 review on this topic. As in the previous review, we noted that weight loss interventions resulted in a decreased risk of developing diabetes, particularly among those with prediabetes, although the prevalence of other intermediate health outcomes was less well reported. Limited evidence exists regarding health outcomes associated with weight loss interventions. Weight loss medications, but not behavior-based interventions, were associated with higher rates of harms compared with control arms. Heterogeneity within each individual intervention arm confounded with differences in the populations, settings, and trial quality, making it difficult to disentangle which variables may be driving larger effects. Long-term weight and health outcomes data, as well as data on important subgroups (e.g. those who are older, nonwhite, or overweight) were lacking and should be a high priority for future study.

  • Phentermine: A Systematic Review for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. [Journal Article]
  • APAnn Plast Surg 2018; 81(4):503-507

  • CONCLUSIONS: The relationship between phentermine and anesthesia, if any, is unclear. Hypotension on induction of general anesthesia is the most reported complication of perioperative phentermine use. Specifically, phentermine-induced hypotension may be unresponsive to vasopressors that rely on catecholamine release, such as ephedrine. Therefore, the decision to perform surgery, especially elective surgery, in a patient taking phentermine should be made with caution. Because of the half-life of phentermine, we recommend discontinuing phentermine for at least 4 days prior to surgery. This differs from the classic 2-week discontinuation period recommended for "fen-phen." The patient should be made aware of the increased risk of surgery, and a skilled anesthesiologist should monitor intraoperative blood pressure and body temperature for signs of autonomic derailment.
