Abstract

The aim of the present study was to describe the clinical- nutritional evolution of older women submitted to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. A concurrent, retrospective study was conducted involving a sample of 16 older women with morbid obesity submitted to Rouxen- Y gastric bypass surgery between 1997 and 2010. Weight, body mass index (BMI), percentage of weight loss (%WL) and percentage of excess weight loss (%EWL) were evaluated three, six and 12 months after surgery. Preoperative comorbidities, postoperative clinical-nutritional manifestations and peri-operative mortality were also investigated. Mean age was 62.02 ± 2.02 years. A progressive reduction was found in mean body weight (116.04 ± 22.99 to 80.96 ± 21.43 Kg) and BMI (47.13 ± 8.19 to 33.42 ± 9.31 Kg/m²), with a consequent %WL of 28.60 ± 8.59% and %EWL of 64.79 ± 3.99% throughout the one-year follow-up period (p < 0.05). All patients has diseases associated with obesity, the most frequent of which were arterial hypertension (n = 16), arthropathy (n = 11), dyslipidemia (n = 9) and diabetes (n = 7). The following clinical-nutritional symptoms were reported: alopecia (n = 9), nausea/vomiting (n = 7), constipation (n = 5) and food intolerance (n = 4). One patient was diagnosed with malnutrition one year after surgery. No deaths occurred within 30 days after surgery. At the one-year evaluation, surgical success was evidenced by the significant reductions in mean weight and BMI and the more than 50% loss of excess weight.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 October 2015.
All research outputs
#7,451,434
of 8,600,861 outputs
Outputs from Nutricion Hospitalaria
#287
of 587 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#203,232
of 245,163 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nutricion Hospitalaria
#18
of 31 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,600,861 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 587 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.9. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 245,163 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 31 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
