INTRODUCTION: Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy are the two most common bariatric surgery performed in the UK that result in comparable weight loss and remission of obesity-associated comorbidities. However, there is a paucity of studies examining the impact of these procedures on body composition, physical activity levels, sedentary behaviour, physical function and strength, dietary intake, health-related quality of life and costs. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: The BARI-LIFESTYLE observational study is a 1-year prospective, longitudinal cohort study within a real-world routine clinical care setting aiming to recruit 100 patients with severe obesity undergoing either primary Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy from two bariatric centres in London, UK...

Bariatric surgery is an effective treatment for morbid obesity and its metabolic related comorbidities - Type II Diabetes, Hypertension and Hyperlipidaemia.1 However, the literature is scarce regarding the long-term outcome after bariatric surgery especially among multi-ethnic Asian populations. Considering the growing number of bariatric metabolic operations in Asia, we have attempted to provide a regional perspective on 5-year long-term clinical outcomes post bariatric surgery in Singapore. Between years 2010 to 2016, all bariatric operative cases consisted of 393 Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG), 125 Laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) and 43 Laparoscopic Mini-gastric Bypass (MGB) were included...
