JACC: Study Shows Bariatric Surgery Improves Cardiac Structure and Function in Severely Obese Patients

On October 27, 2022 the American College of Cardiology published a study of the cardiac results of bariatric surgery. Obesity is one of the largest healthcare issues in the western world affecting 40% of adults and causing 4-million deaths per year. Bariatric surgery is one option for treating severe obesity leading to sustained weight loss.

In the study, bariatric surgery was found to improve both cardiac structure and function: reduced blood pressure, reduced fasting glucose, favorable left ventricular remodeling, reduced cardiac adipose tissue, as well as reduced left ventricular and right ventricular strain.
