#Flash : Men At 'Five Fold' Greater Risk Of Dying After Weig
According to a study, males who undergo obesity (bariatric) surgery are five times more likely than women to die within 30 days of the procedure and also their long-term mortality is almost 3 times higher. Researchers retrospectively analysed medical health claim data of 19,901 patients who had undergone bariatric surgery and noted sex-specific differences in comorbidities associated with obesity (ie, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, psychiatric disorders, and cancers) in patients who died. Less than 2% of bariatric surgery patients died and overall postoperative mortality rates were almost three times higher among men than women (0.64% vs 0.24%). Authors say that further research should be performed to explore if earlier surgical intervention in men could improve mortality outcomes.
