SYSTEM IDENTIFIES RISKS FOR GASTRIC BYPASS PATIENTS
We have previously written about the increasingly popular gastric bypass surgery for the morbidly obese patient. Now, surgeons at Duke University Medical Center have developed a “scoring system” based upon 5 risk factors to predict which gastric bypass surgery patients would be at the highest risk of death during or following the procedure.
Are you one of those patients at high risk of complications or death? Read about the scoring system here.
