  • Bariatric surgical procedures are classified as restrictive, malabsorptive, or a combination of those.
  • In 2017, 59.4% of all bariatric procedures per-formed in the United States were sleeve gastrectomies, a primarily restrictive procedure.
  • Due to the prevalence of comorbid diseases amomong obese patients, there is an increased risk of postoperative myocardial infarction and pulmonary embolism after surgery.
