The purpose of this systematic review was to provide updated evidence synthesis of the effectiveness of exercise training in patients with obesity undergoing bariatric surgery to improve cardio-metabolic risk. We systematically searched the MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scopus, Cochrane, and Web of Science databases. The studies selected were those in which an exercise-based intervention was performed after bariatric surgery, a control group was present, and at least one of the following outcomes was investigated: VO or VO, resting heart rate (RHR), blood pressure, lipid profile, glucose, and insulin. The study quality was assessed using the PEDro scale and the data were meta-analyzed with a random effects model, comparing control groups to intervention groups using standardized measurements. Twenty articles were included in the systematic review and fourteen (70%) in the meta-analysis. Significant differences were observed between the control and intervention groups (always in favor of exercise) for absolute VO / VO (ES = 0.317; 95% CI = 0.065, 0.569; p = 0.014), VO / peak relative to body weight (ES = 0.673; 95% CI = 0.287, 1.060; p = 0.001), HDL cholesterol (ES = 0.22; 95% CI = 0.009, 0.430; p = 0.041) and RHR (ES = -0.438; 95% CI = -0.753, -0.022; p = 0.007). No effects were observed for either systolic or diastolic blood pressure. Exercise training for patients undergoing bariatric surgery appears to be effective in improving absolute and relative VO / VO, HDL cholesterol and reducing the RHR. More intervention studies using (better) exercise interventions are needed before discarding their effects on other cardiometabolic risk factors. This systematic review and meta-analysis has been registered in Prospero (CRD42020153398).

The R820W mutation in the MYBPC3 gene, associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in cats, causes hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and left ventricular non-compaction in humans.

Int J Cardiol 2010 Nov 14;145(2):405-407. Epub 2010 Jun 14.

Cardiology Department, Hospital Son Llatzer, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Background: The R820W mutation in the MYBPC3 gene has been associated with the development of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) in rag-doll cats, but had not been described in humans.

Aims: To describe the phenotype associated with the R820W mutation identified in a human family.

Methods: The R820W was identified by direct sequencing of the MYBPC3 gene in a 47 year old woman with HCM and left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC). Clinical and genetic studies of the R820W mutation were performed in her family.

Results: The index patient was homozygous for the mutation and had no additional mutations in the main sarcomeric genes (MYH7, TNNT2, TNNI3, and TPM1). She had HCM with LVNC and normal systolic function. One brother had died suddenly at age 43 years. Another brother diagnosed of LVNC with severe systolic dysfunction and a cardiac arrest was also homozygous for the mutation. One heterozygous 31 year old sister, and three heterozygous sons of the index (ages 14, 20 and 23 years old) were clinically unaffected. The father of the index was apparently healthy and her mother had atrial fibrillation and an electrocardiographic diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy at age 86 years.

Conclusion: The R820W mutation in the MYBPC3 gene, previously associated with HCM in rag-doll cats, causes both HCM and LVNC in homozygous human carriers, with mild or null clinical expression in heterozygous carriers.
