Abstract

Background: Severe obesity reduces functional capacity. Total and segmental body composition after bariatric surgery may more accurately estimate functional capacity as assessed by the 6-minute walk test (6MWT) than the body mass index(BMI). Objective: To correlate the distance walked during 6MWT(6MWD) with BMI and body composition in the early (T1:6 months) and late (T2:36 months) postoperative period of bariatric surgery. Methods: Functional capacity was evaluated in 77 patients classified according to obesity grade before bariatric surgery(T0) in: Morbidly obese(MO: BMI 40 to 49.9 kg/m2) and super obese(SO: BMI 50 to 59.9 kg/m2) and according to the percentage of excess weight loss(%EWL) in T2: success group(SG: EWL≥50%) and failure group(FG: EWL

Keywords: Obesity, morbid; Exercise test; Movement; Body composition; Anthropometry; Bariatric Surgery.
