Bariatric surgery in morbidly obese sleep-apnea patients: short- and long-term follow-up


American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 55(2 Suppl): 594s-596s
Bariatric surgery in morbidly obese sleep-apnea patients: short- and long-term follow-up
47 obese sleep-apnoea patients were investigated in a sleep laboratory before and after a massive weight reduction achieved by bariatric surgery. The first post-operative sleep investigations were performed about 1 year after surgery and revealed a highly significant decrease in the number of apnoeic episodes per hour of sleep and a significant improvement in all sleep-quality-related measures.
