Resumen

GROS HERGUIDO, Noelia et al. Paraplegia patient and morbid obesity: new challenge in bariatric surgery. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2014, vol.29, n.6, pp.1447-1449. ISSN 1699-5198.  http://dx.doi.org/10.3305/nh.2014.29.6.7400.

The loss of mobility due to spinal cord injury is a risk factor for weight gain. Despite the well-documented outcomes of bariatric surgery in outpatients, little information is available about the surgery in paraplegic patients. We present two cases of patients with morbid obesity and spinal cord injury. After several attempts to lose weight conservatively, were assessed by the multidisciplinary team of our hospital and finally intervened by laparoscopic gastric bypass. After surgery have been no post-surgical complications. The patient in case 1, after two years of follow-up, a weight of 84 kg (BMI 25.08 kg/m2). Case 2, after a month of surgery has reduced weight and stopped taking antihypertensive therapy. It ‘s available to bariatric surgery as an important option to consider if all non-surgical interventions fail is highlighted.
