Inflammatory Bowel Disease Is Not a Contraindication for Bariatric Surgery

Inflammatory Bowel Disease Is Not a Contraindication for Bariatric Surgery Background Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are listed as a contraindication for bariatric surgery in various guidelines due to a theoretical higher complication risk. Therefore, little is known about safety and efficacy of bariatric surgery in IBD patients. Aim We assessed the safety and efficacy of bariatric surgery and postoperative quality of life (QoL) in IBD patients. Setting The study was conducted in a large peripheral hospital in the Netherlands. Methods All IBD patients who underwent bariatric surgery in our facility were included. Complications, mortality, reoperations, and micronutrient deficiencies were analyzed. Weight loss was assessed 6, 12, and 24 months after surgery. Postoperative QoL was assessed using a disease-specific Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ). Results Forty-five patients were included in this study, all diagnosed with IBD (16 ulcerative colitis (UC) and 29 Crohn’sdisease (CD)) prior to bariatric surgery. Bariatric procedures included Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric banding, and revisional surgery. There was no mortality in the entire follow-up period and there were no major perioperative complica- tions. Two major complications in two CD patients occurred during follow-up, gastro-enterostomy bleeding and pyelonephritis with secondary pancreatitis.

Abstract

Background Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are listed as a contraindication for bariatric surgery in various guidelines due to a theoretical higher complication risk. Therefore, little is known about safety and efficacy of bariatric surgery in IBD patients. Aim We assessed the safety and efficacy of bariatric surgery and postoperative quality of life (QoL) in IBD patients. Setting The study was conducted in a large peripheral hospital in the Netherlands. Methods All IBD patients who underwent bariatric surgery in our facility were included. Complications, mortality, reoperations, and micronutrient deficiencies were analyzed. Weight loss was assessed 6, 12, and 24 months after surgery. Postoperative QoL was assessed using a disease-specific Inflammatory Bowel Disease Questionnaire (IBDQ). Results Forty-five patients were included in this study, all diagnosed with IBD (16 ulcerative colitis (UC) and 29 Crohn’sdisease (CD)) prior to bariatric surgery. Bariatric procedures included Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric banding, and revisional surgery. There was no mortality in the entire follow-up period and there were no major perioperative complica- tions. Two major complications in two CD patients occurred during follow-up, gastro-enterostomy bleeding and pyelonephritis with secondary pancreatitis. Mean percentage (± SD) of overall excess weight loss (%EWL) and total body weight loss
