CALL FOR ABSTRACT 12THGHUCG TRACK 21: BARIATRIC SURGERY
What is Bariatric Surgery?
Diet and exercise alone frequently fail to adequately cure individuals with extreme and excessive obesity. Bariatric surgery is an operation performed to assist these persons in losing weight. Evidence suggests that bariatric surgery may reduce mortality rates among individuals with severe obesity, particularly when accompanied with dietary and lifestyle modifications.
Fundamentals of bariatric surgery
The fundamental premise of bariatric surgery is to limit food intake and reduce food absorption in the stomach and intestines.
In the mouth, where food is chewed and combined with saliva and other enzyme-containing secretions, digestion begins. When the food reaches the stomach, it is combined with digestive juices and broken down so that nutrients and calories can be absorbed. As food enters the duodenum (first part of the small intestine), where it is combined with bile and pancreatic juice, digestion speeds up.
This digestion process is altered or interrupted by bariatric surgery so that food is not normally broken down and absorbed. Reducing the amount of nutrients and calories consumed assists patients to lose weight and reduces their risk for health hazards or illnesses associated with obesity.
Isometric body mass index (BMI)
The body mass index (BMI), a ratio of height to weight, is used to describe levels of obesity and decide if bariatric intervention is necessary. Clinically severe obesity is characterised by a BMI greater than 40 kg/m2 or a BMI greater than 35 kg/m2 in conjunction with serious health issues.
Obesity is connected with type 2 diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and severe obstructive sleep apnea. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) permits the use of adjustable gastric banding for patients with a BMI of 30 kg/m2 or above who also have at least one of the following conditions: type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease, or hypertension.

Types of Weight Loss Surgery
There are a variety of bariatric surgical procedures that can be performed. Laparoscopy allows surgical instruments to be directed into the abdomen through small, half-inch incisions. An “open” method, which requires cutting open the abdomen, may also be used to do surgery. Laparoscopic bariatric surgery is now the norm since, compared to open surgery, it involves fewer incisions, produces less tissue damage, results in fewer post-operative complications, and permits earlier hospital discharge.
There are four sorts of available operations:
- Adjustable abdominal banding (AGB)
- Roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy (RYGB)
- Duodenal switch for biliopancreatic diversion (BPD-DS)
- Vertical sleeve gastric bypass (VSG)
