Abstract [en]

Purpose: This IFSO survey aims to describe the current trends of metabolic and bariatric surgery (MBS) reporting on the number and types of surgical and endoluminal procedures performed in 2020 and 2021, in the world and within each IFSO chapter.

Methods: All national societies belonging to IFSO were asked to complete the survey form. The number and types of procedures performed (surgical and endoluminal interventions) from 2020 to 2021 were documented. A special section focused on the impact of COVID-19, the existence of national protocols for MBS, the use of telemedicine, and any mortality related to MBS. A trend analysis of the data, both worldwide and within each IFSO chapter, was also performed for the period between 2018 and 2021.

Results: Fifty-seven of the 74 (77%) IFSO national societies submitted the survey. Twenty-four of the 57 (42.1%) reported data from their national registries. The total number of surgical and endoluminal procedures performed in 2020 was 507,806 and in 2021 was 598,834. Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) remained the most performed bariatric procedure. Thirty national societies (52%) had regional protocols for MBS during COVID-19, 61.4% supported the use of telemedicine, and only 47.3% collected data on mortality after MBS in 2020. These percentages did not significantly change in 2021 (p > 0.05).

Conclusions: The number of MBS markedly decreased worldwide during 2020. Although there was a positive trend in 2021, it did not reach the values obtained before the COVID-19 pandemic. SG continued to be the most performed operation. Adjustable gastric banding (AGB) continues to decrease worldwide.
