Welcome to “Checklists in Bariatric Surgery.” This column’s aim is to help bariatric surgeons quickly review the reasons for potential problems when caring for bariatric patients.
This month’s Checklist focuses on gastric venous thromboembolism after bariatric surgery.
We present this 21st installment of “Checklists” based on peer-reviewed publications, which might help our readers communicate better and treat patients expeditiously. We hope you clip and save this convenient checklist and find it useful as a reference tool in your everyday practice.
Please stay tuned for more checklists in upcoming issues of Bariatric Times.
