Introduction: Morbid obesity is related to the high incidence of dyslipidemia, which is considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
Objective: To evaluate the lipid profile in the pre and post-operative patients undergoing gastric bypass Roux-Y.
Methods: A retrospective study on patients undergoing gastric bypass Roux-Y at the Hospital of the Federal University of Pernambuco. Body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, waist-hip ratio, total cholesterol (TC), high density lipoprotein (HDL-C), low density lipoprotein (LDL-C) and triglycerides (TG) were evaluated before and 3 months after surgery. From the serum lipids was rated the most atherogenic lipid profile through the TG / HDL-c ratio.
Results: 30 patients were studied, 83.3% were female. There was reduction of concentrations of all parameters studied except for HDL-c, with decreased frequency of dyslipidemia and cardiovascular risk after 3 months.
Conclusion: In just three months after surgery, bariatric surgery was effective in improving lipid profile and therefore, some important cardiovascular risk factors.
