A comparative study of three-year weight loss and outcomes after laparoscopic gastric bypass in patients with "yellow light" psychological clearance. - Obesity surgery
The relationship between psychological factors and bariatric surgical outcomes is unclear. While some psychological contraindications to bariatric surgery are described, there is no consensus on preoperative psychological evaluation or on factors that can predict bariatric outcomes. Our aim was to determine whether full or reserved psychological clearance predicts early weight loss or compliance with follow-up. We found no clinically significant differences in short-term weight loss outcomes or in attendance at scheduled follow-up visits between patients receiving full or "green light" clearance versus "yellow light" clearance, meaning clearance with recommendations for ongoing therapy. Further research may identify psychological predictors of success following bariatric surgery and help optimize preoperative evaluation practices.
