Question 10#

The gastric sleeve procedure and RYGB result in similar degrees of resolution of all of the following EXCEPT:

a. Gastroesophageal reflux disease ( GERD)
b. Hypertension
c. Type 2 diabetes mellitus
d. Obstructive sleep apnea

Correct Answer is A


The resolution of obesity-related comorbidities after gastric sleeve procedures is nearly equivalent to that seen after RYGB, with the exception of the resolution of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Whereas more than 90% ofRYGB patients report relief of GERD, some studies show an increase in GERD symptoms after gastric sleeve surgery.
