Calculator Predicts Heart Benefits of Bariatric Surgery

A new web-based calculator showed promise for predicting individualized outcomes following bariatric surgery. Using regression and machine learning techniques paired with diabetes complications risk scores, this web-based tool predicts the 10-year risks of heart failure, cerebrovascular disease, and all-cause mortality in patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes.

What’s unique about this Individualized Diabetes Complication (IDC) Risk Calculator is that it compares the patient’s current risk for these complications of obesity to their projected risk after undergoing metabolic or bariatric surgery.
