REYES FIGUEROA, Julio César  e  MUNOZ TAMAYO, Rodrigo. Prevalence and Determination of Risk Factors Associated with Psychopathology in Bariatric Surgery Candidates at Clínica Reina Sofía, Bogotá, Colombia. rev.colomb.psiquiatr. [online]. 2008, vol.37, n.3, pp.385-396. ISSN 0034-7450.

Objectives: To determine the prevalence of psychopathology among bariatric surgery candidates at the Reina Sofía Clinic during October-November 2007, and to identify some factors associated to psychopathology in this population. Method: This is a descriptive study with a comparative transversal analysis. 50 ba-riatric surgery candidates were considered into study, who accepted to participate in the study and signed written informed consent. These patients were then assessed with Structured Clinical Interview (SCID), for DSM-IV, and structured questions for the systematic variables exploration. Results: In the study group (n=50), 62% (n=31) were women, the mean age was 45.2 years (SD=12.94) and the mean body mass index (BMI) of the group was 38.92 Kg/m2 (SD=3.53). The psychopathology prevalence was 38% (n=19), with mood disorders: 24% (n=12); adaptative disorders; 8% (n=4), and anxiety disorders: 6% (n=3). The comparative analysis by the psychopathology presence showed a significant correlation with history of sexual abuse and psychopathology (OR=10.71; 95% C.I.: 1.14-100.52). The analysis did not show significant relation among demographic characteristics, obesity grade or social problems and the risk of psy-chopathology. Conclusions: the study shows a significant correlation between child sexual abuse history and psychopathology.
