  • Six-month readmissions after bariatric surgery: Results of a nationwide analysis. [Journal Article]
    Surgery 2019Rios-Diaz AJ, Metcalfe D, … Palazzo F
  • CONCLUSIONS: Readmissions after bariatric surgery continue to occur even 6 months after discharge. Most of these readmissions were related directly to the index procedure. Almost a fourth of those patients who were readmitted d required a procedure and almost a third presented to a different hospital than the hiatal of their initial operation. These readmissions carry a substantial burden for the health care system and may impair quality of life for patients. Strategies targeted to prevent readmissions beyond the traditional 30-day benchmark are warranted in this population.
  • The Association Between Kidney Disease and Diabetes Remission in Bariatric Surgery Patients With Type 2 Diabetes. [Journal Article]
    Am J Kidney Dis 2019Friedman AN, Wang J, … Wolfe B
  • CONCLUSIONS: A minority of participants had baseline CKD; lack of comparison group; no information on duration of diabetes, other clinical end points, or kidney biopsy results.Remission of type 2 diabetes 5 years after bariatric surgery was associated with improvements in albuminuria and stabilized prognostic risk for CKD, but not with eGFR. Lower kidney function and greater prognostic risk at the time of bariatric surgery was linked to a lower likelihood of diabetes remission. These results highlight the need to identify the mechanisms through which bariatric surgery may delay the long-term progression of CKD in type 2 diabetes.
