Bariatric surgery was associated with a reduction in the long-term risk of dying, and longer life expectancy, reported researchers in Sweden.
An additional analysis of the ongoing Swedish Obese Subjects (SOS) study suggested that individuals that underwent bariatric surgery had a 23% lower risk of dying over a median 24-year follow-up compared to those who received usual obesity care (hazard ratio 0.77, 95% CI 0.68-0.87, P<0.001). The lower mortality risk was primarily driven by a reduction in death due to cardiovascular disease (CVD), the most common being myocardial infarction, heart failure, and sudden death, reported the researchers in the New England Journal of Medicine. Bariatric surgery was tied to a 30% reduced risk of CVD-related death versus usual obesity care (HR 0.70, 95% CI 0.57-0.85), and a decline in cancer-related mortality in comparison with receiving usual obesity care (HR 0.77, 95% CI 0.61-0.96)… (Medpage Today)
