“I think we know that bariatric surgery does good things for people from a cardiovascular risk profile,” said Dr. Michael Gold, director of cardiology at Medical University of South Carolina, who wasn’t involved in the research. “Now we’re starting to go downstream from that to look at more long-term impacts . . . and atrial fibrillation is one of those.
