Video ratings of surgical skill and late outcomes of bariatric surgery.
The authors sought to study the association between surgical skill and long-term outcomes of bariatric surgery. They found that surgical skill did not affect postoperative weight loss or resolution of medical comorbidities at 1 year after laparoscopic gastric bypass. They suggested that long-term outcomes after bariatric surgery may be less dependent on a surgeon's operative skill and instead be driven by other factors.
