Journal Review in Bariatric Surgery: SPLENDID and BRAVES Studies


For our last submission as the BTK Bariatric Surgery Team, we thought we would take a minute to review some recent landmark trials in bariatric surgery. Get caught up on the impact of bariatric surgery on obesogenic cancers and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. 

Journal articles:
Association of Bariatric Surgery with Cancer Risk and Mortality in Adults with Obesity: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35657620/

Bariatric-Metabolic Surgery versus Lifestyle Intervention plus Best Medical Care in Non-Alcoholic Steatophepatitis (BRAVES): A Multicentre, Open-Label, Randomised Trial: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/37088093/.

Ad referenced in episode: A team at the Brooke Army Medical Center is working to better define proficiency-based metrics for competency in commonly performed robotic general surgery procedures. If you are a general surgery resident or practicing surgeon who performs robotic assisted cholecystectomies or inguinal hernia repairs,  reach out to the PI, Robert Laverty, MD, at rblaverty@gmail.com for more information on how you could be compensated $500 per video submitted of each (up to $1000 per surgeon).
