|Issue Date:||2021||Journal:||Obesity Surgery||Abstract:||We analyzed in detail the outcomes of eight patients with ventricular assist devices (VADs) and obesity who underwent laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) at a single heart transplant (HT) center. This comprehensive analysis included body mass index (BMI) trends from VAD implantation to the time of LSG; BMI and percentage of excess BMI lost during follow-up; adverse outcomes; and changes in echocardiographic parameters, fasting lipids, unplanned hospitalizations, and functional status. We also identified the patients who achieved the following outcomes: listing for HT, HT, 50% excess BMI loss, and BMI < 35 kg/m2. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy seems to be a reasonable and effective intervention to help patients with VADs and obesity to decrease excess BMI and become candidates for HT.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/74273||ISSN:||0960-8923||DOI:||10.1007/s11695-020-04948-9||Source:||Obesity Surgery [ISSN 0960-8923], v. 31(2), p. 884-890, (Febrero 2021)|
