Abstract

There is vast evidence that supports the importance of obesity in the pathogenesis and progression of cardiovascular disease. Rapid weight loss induced by laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) has proven beneficial. The aim of this study is to evaluate laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) as an alternative treatment modality and its impact on the Framingham-BMI 10-year risk score. We retrospectively reviewed all patients that underwent bariatric surgery at our institution between 2010 and 2014. Patients who met the criteria for calculating the Framingham BMI 10-year risk score were included. Data collected included baseline demographics, perioperative parameters such as tobacco use, diagnosis of diabetes, treatment for hypertension, BMI and postoperative outcomes at 3 and 12 months. From our 1129 bariatric patients, 358 (31.7%) met criteria for the Framingham BMI 10-year risk score calculation. LSG was the most prevalent surgery 61.45% (N = 220) followed by LRYGB 22.06% (N = 79). Females composed 69% (N = 248) of our population. The average age for females was 52.3 ± 10.8 years and for males 54.07 ± 11.2 years. The initial Framingham 10-year score risk was significantly higher in males compared with females (36.16% ± 22.3 vs. 16.97% ± 15.6 (p < 0.001)). After 12-month follow-up, the absolute risk reduction in males was 11.58% (p < 0.001) and 6.17% in females (p < 0.001). The preoperative heart age was high in females and males (69.23 ± 15.72 years and 73.55 ± 13.55 years, respectively (p = 0.012)), and after 12 months it was reduced 7.19 years in females (p < 0.001) and 7.04 years in males (p < 0.001). The percentage of estimated BMI loss at 1 year was 64.43% in females and 60.69% in males. Sleeve gastrectomy has demonstrated to be an effective method of treatment for obesity. Our results suggest that rapid weight loss after LSG has a positive impact in the reduction of the 10-year cardiovascular disease risk. Further prospective studies may be needed to better assess these findings.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 August 2017.
All research outputs
#3,274,025
of 12,229,332 outputs
Outputs from Surgical Endoscopy
#765
of 3,571 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#86,367
of 265,977 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Surgical Endoscopy
#49
of 153 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,229,332 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 72nd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,571 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 265,977 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 153 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 67% of its contemporaries.
