What are the risks of pregnancy after gastric bypass surgery?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Pregnancy after gastric bypass surgery is associated with an increased risk of nutritional deficiencies, small-for-gestational-age (SGA) newborns, and postsurgical complications that are not immediately recognized. However, compared with obese women without previous gastric bypass surgery, these women have a decreased risk of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), and macrosomia.
