Methods: Six databases were searched for intervention studies in any language up until July 2018. Study quality was assessed using the Cochrane Risk of Bias tool.
Results: 6,871 records were screened, identifying 17 eligible publications (n=10 trials; n=1,169 participants in total) which mostly had low to unclear risk of bias. Intensive behavioural interventions addressed lifestyle (n=4 trials), physical activity (n=3 trials), or cognitive behavioural therapy (n=3 trial); which were delivered as preoperative interventions (n=3 trials), postoperative interventions (n=2 trials), or pre- and postoperative intervention (n=5 trials). Intensive interventions varied from weekly to quarterly in frequency, with a duration from 6-weeks to 24-months. No trial which concluded intervention delivery before 6-months post-surgery reported any effect compared with control (n=6 trials). All six trials which commenced or continued MDT delivery 6-months post-surgery reported significant improvements in weight and/or fat loss (n=4 trials) and depression (n=1 trial) compared with control.
Conclusions: For the best outcomes and most efficacious use of resources, intensive multidisciplinary behavioural interventions may be of the greatest value if they commence 6-months postoperatively; with standard multidisciplinary support provided pre- and early postoperatively.
