Trends in bariatric surgery procedures among patients with ESKD in the United States.
This study examined trends in bariatric surgery among patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) in the United States. There was an almost ninefold increase in surgery between 2006 and 2016 for ESKD patients and also for sleeve gastrectomy surgery. ESKD patients showed similar complication rates compared with non-ESKD patients, but there were more readmissions.
