Bariatric surgery in Russia in 2011-2013

Cover Page


Within three years (2011 - 2013), we collected data on the operations carried out by sending a questionnaire to members of the Russian Society of Bariatric Surgeons. In the questionnaire were asked to fill in a table on the total number of operations, their structure, subject to the applicable access and report on fatal cases indicating the cause of death.

The number of executed operations (excluding installation gastric balloon) increased from 989 to 1525.

In 2012, steel longitudinal gastrectomy performed more often than banding. The share gastroshuntirovany continues to decline throughout the period.

In 2013, against the backdrop of a significant increase in the number of bariatric interventions deaths were recorded.
