Gastroenterology & Hepatology

Did you or a loved one undergo a bariatric surgery for obesity? Your input is needed on a protocol considering surgical techniques for closing mesenteric defects for internal hernia after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in bariatric surgery.

Skills / interests: Consumer (public, patient, carer) input

Would you be interested in helping us with this article focused on “Closure of mesenteric defects for internal hernia after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in bariatric surgery”.

I am looking for a consumer who would be willing to peer review this Cochrane systematic review protocol: Closure of mesenteric defects for internal hernia after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass in bariatric surgery.

Cochrane considers a consumer to be a person with experience of the condition (in this case, bariatric surgery for obesity), either as a patient or as a carer/family member of a patient. 

A protocol is a plan for a systematic review. Consumer input at protocol stage is integral to ensure that the completed systematic review will be helpful to patients and carers with healthcare decision making. For consumer peer review, you will be asked to complete a short form with your feedback. Our aim is for this to be a manageable task, that does not overburden consumer reviewers.

Thank you in advance for considering!
