Issue 47 of Bariatric News is now available to read and/or download here. In this issue, we report on the ten-year outcomes from the SLEEVEPASS Randomized Clinical Trial – a study comparing the long-term outcomes of weight loss and remission of obesity-related comorbidities after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
We also report on the first systematic review and meta-analysis of banded SG vs SG, bariatric surgery and opioid abuse, the outcomes from the SPLENDID study that found bariatric surgery reduces the risk of developing cancer and death from cancer, and the first result from the MERIT RCT that assess endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty.
The newspaper also features meeting reports from the ASMBS annual meeting, the European Congress on Obesity and the GORE Complex Ventral Hernia Symposium.
Plus the usually summary of clinical papers, product and industry news, information on future events and more.
