Study: Vascular Function Improves in All Patient Groups After Bariatric Surgery

On top of the weight loss benefits, a recent study found that bariatric surgery effectively improved vascular outcomes. More than 300 obese adults participated in this study, which saw a significant improvement in both average endothelium-dependent flow-mediated dilation (FMD) and reactive hyperemia (RH) after a 6-month follow-up. Both these metrics are “clinically validated as independent predictors of cardiovascular risk” and indicate significant improvement in macrovascular and microvascular function following bariatric surgery.

We can add vascular function to the long list of benefits of bariatric surgery, lessening risks for many health problems down the road that become dangerous and costly. Bariatric surgery has also been shown to resolve other comorbidities of obesity:

Clearly, the research indicates that bariatric surgery can be an effective long-term and affordable solution for obesity. So, whether you’re a potential patient or an employer looking for the best healthcare plan for your organization, considering surgical solutions to obesity and related health issues is in your best interest.
