CONSENSUS CONFERENCE BARIATRICS After months of hard work throughout the project team led by Nicola Di Lorenzo and Gianfranco Silecchia, the new guidelines on obesity management were presented at the annual congress in a dedicated session that was very well attended. During the session, a voting system was used to involve the attendees in the development of this guideline. The EAES (European Association For Endoscopic Surgery) guidelines on bariatric surgery were completed in 2004 and published in 2005. After 14 years, their revision and update have been conducted by a multidisciplinary team of experts. They belong to EAES, IFSO-EC (International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and metabolic disorders - European Chapter), EASO (European Association for the Study of Obesity), ESPCOP (European Society for Perioperative Care of Obese Patients) The project aims to provide valuable guidance on the surgical management of obesity, reflecting the best and most recent evidence in this field according to GRADE methodology.
