Background: Cohort studies showed that bariatric surgery may reduce cardiovascular disease (CVD) incidence, but real-world data from the UK in that regards are limited. Hence, we conducted a population-based study examining the impact of bariatric surgery on incident CVD.Methods: A retrospective cohort matched-controlled study of adults (18–75 years) who had bariatric surgery (Gastric band (GB), sleeve gastrectomy/gastroplasty (SG), gastric bypass (...

Listening to the unheard voice: a qualitative exploration of the views of men working in routine manual occupations and their general practitioners about body weight, health and weight management programmes

Broughton Matthew , Lymn Joanne , Redsell Sarah

Background: Men are underrepresented in weight management programmes despite more men having increased health risk due to elevated body mass index. Gender sensitised weight management programmes have been trialled in an attempt to encourage more men to access support. Despite successes little is known about the views of men that have never attended any form of structured weight management programme. The aim of this research was to increase understanding of the view that men wh...

Pregnancy after bariatric surgery: a case-control study of maternal risk factors for small for gestational age babies in the AURORA dataset

Akhter Zainab , Devlieger Roland , Rankin Judith , Ceulemans Dries , Heslehurst Nicola

Background: Small-for-gestational-age (SGA) is defined as a baby born <10th percentile for birth weight, age, and sex. Women with previous bariatric surgery have >2-fold risk of having a SGA baby, especially following malabsorptive surgery such as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). Babies born SGA are at an increased risk for morbidity and mortality; however, adverse outcomes are significantly improved when SGA identification occurs antenatally. This study aimed to inves...

A systematic review of the evidence for interventions to increase levels of physical activity in patients following weight loss surgery

James Jennifer , Sprung Victoria , Hardeman Wendy , Goodall Mark , Eborall Helen , Wilding John

Background: Weight loss surgery [WLS] is effective at inducing significant weight loss and improving associated complications such as type 2 diabetes. However, weight regain and re-occurrence of these conditions can occur. Consequently there is increasing focus on how to optimise patient outcomes with emerging evidence that those who increase their levels of physical activity [PA] have better clinical and patient-centred outcomes. The aim of this review was to synthesise the e...

Cognitive and behavioural strategies employed to overcome ‘relapse’ among weight loss maintainers and regainers: a qualitative study

Lawlor Emma , Hughes Carly , Duschinsky Robbie , Griffin Simon , Hill Andrew , Ahern Amy

Background: While many behavioural weight management programmes are effective in the short-term, in the context of a complex obesogenic environment, post-programme weight regain is common. Overcoming ‘relapses’ has been highlighted as an important phenomenon in weight-loss maintenance, but research on how this is done is sparse. By comparing strategies employed by those who had regained or maintained weight loss, we explored this phenomenon and identified effective c...
