Bariatric Surgery Should Be Proposed in Certain Septuagenarian Patients with Obesity

Abstract

Bariatric surgery (BS) is rarely performed on patients aged 70 and over, due to the fear of adverse effects, particularly related to sarcopenia. We examined the outcome of obese patients who underwent BS after the age of 69 in the French population. Operated subjects were matched with non-operated obese patients (n = 1307 in each group after matching). We showed that BS was associated with a reduction in mortality and no increase in the risks of rehospitalization or fracture events.
