INABNET III, MD, FACS Page 16 COLUMN EDITOR Daniel B. Jones, MD, MS, FASMBS FEATURED STUDENT Sally Tan Pathophysiology and Management of Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Bariatric Patients INTRODUCTION Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common comorbidity of obesity, estimated to afflict up to 71 percent of bariatric surgery patients. 1 OSA impairs quality of life for these patients, and emerging evidence suggests it may even perpetuate the endocrine imbalances that drive weight gain. Bariatric surgery is the most effective option for long-term weight loss, and patients often experience dramatic improvement in OSA symptoms following surgery. This article reviews the latest literature about OSA pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment as a practical guide for bariatric surgeons caring for patients with OSA. T h e M E D I C A L S T U D E N T N o t e b o o k WELCOME TO THE MOUNT SINAI HEALTH SYSTEM BARIATRIC SURGERY COLLABORATIVE Surgery for severe obesity has been performed at The Mount Sinai Health System hospitals for almost 40 years. This experience provides the foundation on which our bariatric program was built. Our hospitals have a long tradition of quality and innovation in bariatric surgery. We have been performing laparoscopic, or minimally invasive surgery for obesity since 1998. Our surgeons have accomplished many "firsts," including the development of the technique for laparoscopic duodenal switch; moreover, the first laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy was performed at Mount Sinai in 2000. In 2013, Mount Sinai merged its three bariatric centers to form one program dedicated to the care of patients with obesity and metabolic disease. The Mount Sinai Health System has one of the largest and busiest bariatric surgery programs in the United States. ITunes Google (Android) Download the BT app for your mobile device!
