Patients With Obesity and ESRD See Survival Benefit From Bariatric Tx

Even for people with obesity and end-stage renal disease (ESRD), bariatric surgery may help slash mortality risk, researchers reported.

In a retrospective cohort study of over 6,000 individuals with obesity and ESRD, those who underwent bariatric surgery saw a 31% reduced risk for all-cause mortality at 5 years (HR 0.69, 95% CI 0.60-0.78), according to Kyle Sheetz, MD, of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and colleagues.

Also at 5 years, 25.6% of those who received bariatric surgery died from any cause, including withdrawal from dialysis, versus about 40% of those who received usual care, they stated.
