Using machine learning, a team of researchers from the University of Lille in Lille, Hauts-de-France, has developed a model that predicts specific weight trajectories for a maximum of five years after bariatric surgery. Three of the most common types of bariatric surgery include sleeve gastrectomy, RYGB (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass), and AGB (adjustable gastric banding). The model has been internationally verified and is being utilized for the very first time to deliver preoperative predictions of obesity trajectories for up to five years after surgery, based on a study released by THE LANCET Digital Health journal.
