The role of bariatric surgery in the management

Despite the fact that bariatric surgery does not reduce absolute BMI to within normal range in most patients, studies suggest it improves some important markers of fertility including hyper-insulinemia and ovulation in polycystic ovary syndrome.
Moreover, maternal outcomes and morbidity in pregnancy are better than for women who are similarly obese and are comparable with that of the general population.
Obese women who have weight loss surgery before becoming pregnant have a lower risk of pregnancy-related health problems and their children are less likely to be born with complications.
Life-long vitamin supplementation is advised.
It is advised against falling pregnant during the initial weight loss phase (1 year)

  7. 7. **In1997 the WHO formally recognized obesity as a global epidemic. **At 2008, The WHO claimed that 1.5 billion individuals over the age of 20 are considered obese. **Obesity rates are rising worldwide.
  8. 8.  Data from the Demographic and Health Surveys show that:  In 1992, mothers with young children had a mean (BMI) of 26.9.  By 2005, rise to a mean BMI of 30.1, with nearly half of Egyptian women of reproductive age classified as obese. WHO study (Musaiger 2004)
  9. 9.  Obesity is associated with reduced fertility primarily as a result of oligo-ovulation and an-ovulation .  In one study of 500 women, there was a 30% reduction in rate of conception with each 0.1 point increase in waist–hip ratio. Fat and female fecundity: prospective study of effect of body fat distribution on conception rates. BMJ 1993;306:484–7.
  10. 10.  Compared with normal weight women with PCOS, those obese women with PCO are characterised by: * Worsened hyper-androgenic state. * Worsened metabolic state. * Poorer menses. * Poorer ovulatory performance. * Poorer pregnancy rates. • Obese women with PCOS often report extreme difficulty in loosing weight .
  11. 11.  Compared with women with a BMI of 25 kg/m2 or less, women with a BMI ≥ 25 kg/m2 have: * A lower chance of pregnancy following IVF. * Require higher dose of gonado-trophins . * More days of ovarian stimulation. * Have an increased miscarriage rate.
  12. 12.  There is insufficient evidence on the effect of BMI on: * Live birth, * Cycle cancellation, * Oocyte recovery , * Ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome.  Further studies are needed to investigate the true impact of weight on the outcome of ART.

  15. 15.  women seeking fertility advice with a BMI above 29 kg/m2 should be informed that:  They will take longer time to conceive.  ART is less likely to be effective at this BMI.  Losing weight in a structured group programme of exercise and dietary advice is likely to increase their chances of conceiving. National Institute for Clinical Excellence. Fertility: Assessment and Treatment for People with Fertility Problems. Clinical Guideline 11. London: NICE; 2004
  16. 16.  Fertility treatment should be deferred in women who are morbidly obese, until they have lost weight to below a BMI of 35 kg/m2, although in those with more time (under 37 years with normal ovarian reserve) a weight reduction to less than 30 kg/m2 is preferable.

  37. 37.  Compared with the general population:  The No. of congenital anomalies, not increased .  The No. of perinatal death, not increased.  A trend towards lower mean birth weight:  More SGA infants.  Decreased macrosomia .
  38. 38.  Contraception  Timing of pregnancy  Nutritional dificiency  Drug absorption
  39. 39.  Recommendation is to wait 12-24 months after bariatric surgery before conceiving so that: 1) The fetus is not exposed to a rapid maternal weight loss environment . 2) The patient can achieve full weight loss goals . 3) Any operative complications should have appeared.
  40. 40.  Increased risk of oral contraception failure with mal-absorption .  Non-oral rout should be considered .
  41. 41.  The most common nutritional deficiencies are of protein, iron, vitamin B12,folate, vitamin D. and calcium.  Evaluate for micronutrient deficiencies at the beginning of pregnancy .  If there is a proven deficit, then treat & monitor.  In the absence of a deficiency, monitor the blood count, iron, ferritin, calcium, and vitamin D levels every trimester .
  42. 42.  It is not known if women require higher dose of folic acid ( greater than 0.4mg/d)  The daily recommendation for protein intake of 60g is the same regardless of bariatric surgery status .  Caloric and protein restriction during pregnancy may impair fetal growth so, there is no recommendation for caloric restriction during pregnancy.
  43. 43.  Fluid from the gastric band is removed or lessened during a pregnancy allowing for less gastric constriction and an increase in oral intake & relieve nausea and vomiting during the first trimester . 
  44. 44.  Delay in the diagnosis of bariatric-related operative complications including intestinal obstruction and GI hemorrhage -----There should be a high index of suspicion for gastrointestinal surgical complication.  Exploratory surgery during pregnancy may be required to treat these complications .  Maternal deaths have been reported .
  45. 45.  Dumping syndrome: hyper-insulinemia and hypoglycemia due to rapid empty of the stomach into the small intestine.  Patients with dumping syndrome may not tolerate the 75g GTT.  Alternative measures to screen for gestational diabetes is home glucose monitoring ( fasting and 2-hours PP blood sugar) for approximately 1 week during the 24-28 weeks of gestational .
  46. 46.  Absorptive surface of the intestine Extended-release preparations not recommended .  Smaller gastric pouch caution against using non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs postpartum to avoid gastric ulceration .  In using medications in which a therapeutic drug level is critical testing drug levels may be necessary to ensure a therapeutic effect.
  47. 47.  Does not alter the course of labor and delivery.  Cesarean delivery rates are higher after bariatric surgery, as high as 62% .  Bariatric surgery itself should not be considered an indication for a cesarean delivery.
  48. 48.  Obesity has many deleterious effects for women of reproductive age.  Obese women are more likely to encounter fertility problems & miscarriage.  Maternal& foetal mortality and morbidity is significantly elevated for obese women due to complications in pregnancy labour and postpartum period .
  49. 49.  The management of obesity requires a multidisciplinary approach.  Stepwise programmes with realistic time- related goals are required, starting with modification of lifestyle, progressing to pharmacotherapy and ultimately obesity surgery.  Weight loss interventions do not appear to be common practice among fertility centres& pre-pregnancy clinics in spite of clear evidence as to the benefits.
  50. 50.  Obese women who have weight loss surgery before becoming pregnant have a lower risk of pregnancy-related health problems and their children are less likely to be born with complications.  Life-long vitamin supplementation is advised.  It is advised against falling pregnant during the initial weight loss phase (1 year)
  51. 51.  Despite the fact that bariatric surgery does not reduce absolute BMI to within normal range in most patients, studies suggest it improves some important markers of fertility including hyper- insulinemia and ovulation in polycystic ovary syndrome.  Moreover, maternal outcomes and morbidity in pregnancy are better than for women who are similarly obese and are comparable with that of the general population.  Long-term cardiac and metabolic outcomes for infants born following bariatric procedures are also improved.
  52. 52.  Pregnancy is better to be delayed for 1-2 years after bariatric surgery.  During pregnancy adequate nutrition and vitamin supplementation should be maintained,  Caution should be exercised when determining eligibility for in vitro fertilisation in women who have undergone bariatric surgery.
  53. 53.  Prevention of childhood obesity is a priority. In particular, barriers to physical activity in girls and young women should be addressed.
