  • Here talk of the “Gold Standard” of LRBGYAlso communicate the use of LRBGY as opposed to other bariatric surgeriesCommunicate what a “malabsorption procedure”
  • Look up NIH criteria, figure out what that means
  • Figure out better title

  • Prevalence of anemia and relateddeficiencies in the first year followinglaparoscopic gastric bypass for morbidobesityAarts, E. O., van Wageningen, B., Janssen, I. M. C.,& Berends, F. J. (2012).Journal of ObesityAllison Kliewer
  • IntroductionBackgroundPurposeSubjectsMethodsResultsOther research
  • Literature : Evidence Analysis Manual Accurate assumptions No bias was introduced to the study Appropriate conclusions made No financial ties to disclose No conflict of interests Design: prospective cohort Epidemiological analytical study: class B, Grade I: Good
  • Background Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (LRBGY)is most common bariatric surgery Anemia associated with iron, folic acid, andvitamin B12 deficiencies after surgery arecommon Restrictive, malabsorptive procedure Bypassing stomach and duodenum, gastricacid, intake
  • Purpose Limited studies addressing nutrientdeficiencies and anemia Prospective study to investigate the prevalenceof anemia and deficiencies in iron, folate, andvitamin B12 in the first year after laparoscopicgastric bypass (LRYGB) in our patients.
  • Subjects January 2005 – October 2009 416 pts LRYGB (Rijnstate Hospital, TheNetherlands) N= 377 ( 102: M, 275: F) Average age: 43.4 (18-63) Average wt (kg): 137.5 ± 22.6 Average BMI 46.8 ± 6.3
  • Inclusion/Exclusion criteria Screened by multidisciplinary team Met NIH Consensus Development ConferencePanel for bariatric surgery Unable to attend standard F/U protocol Pt with laboratory evaluations that surpassedthe 6 & 12 month evaluation by 2-3 monthsrespectively
  • Methods 30 cc proximal gastric pouch Connect 100-150 cm roux-en-y limb tojejunum 40 cm from the ligament of Treitz 2005-2007 BMI > 40 received 100 cm limb,BMI of >50 (or failing gastric band) received150 cm limb 2007 all pt received 150 cm

  • Methods F/U at 1,3,6 & 12 months post-op Complete blood count, mean cell volume(MCV) and kidney function pre-op After 6 & 12 months laboratory evaluationsrepeated, plus plasma levels of iron, total ironbinding capacity (TIBC), serum folate levels andserum B12
  • Post-op Protocol Standard multivitamin 3 x daily 7 mg iron 100 μg of folic acid 0.5 μg B12 Compliance was assessed
  • Limits Anemia: Hemoglobin (Hb) in men < 8.4mmol/L & Hb women <7.4 mmol/L MCV 80-100 fL normal TIBC > 80% Serum iron < 9.0 μmol/L = Deficient Serum folate < 9.0 nmol/L = Deficient B12 < 150 pmol/L = Deficient
  • Results: Anemia Pre-op 27 pt had anemia After 12 months 66 pt developed anemia Total prevalence of anemia including pre-op is25% 93 developed anemia within first year
  • Results: Iron deficiency 33% after one year 61% with anemia de novo 38% vs. 17% (Female vs. Male)
  • Results: Folic acid 15% of pt 14% of pt with anemia de novo
  • Results: Vitamin B12 50% of pt 40% of pt with anemia de novo 42 % vs. 21 % (female vs. male)
  • Results 239/377 (63%) were diagnosed with at leastone of either iron, folic acid, or B12 deficiency Male 45% risk of being diagnosed with iron,folic acid, or B12 deficiency vs. 68% of females AGB prior to RYGB a 24% vs. 39% risk in B12deficiencies

  • Risk Factors Decreased absorption surface = absorptioncapacity ph due to gastric acid (proton pump inhibitorsand calcium, other meds) Intolerance for red meat and milk Inadequate intake preoperatively Menstruation inflammatory response
  • Recommendations 40-65 mg/d of elemental iron for males 100 mg/d elemental iron for females + Vitamin C ? 400 μg/d of folic acid or 1 mg/d 300-500 μg/d of B12
  • Questions? Based on the results from this study, whatprotocol should be followed with patientsundergoing LRYGB? Why would a folate deficiency be of concernfor premenopausal women? Is this information useful?
  • Application Monitor anemia and deficiencies in ptfollowing gastric bypass Supplementation to avoid deficiency andanemia post-op needs to be determined At risk pts would benefit from a highersupplementation level
