      Prevalence of adverse childhood experiences and impact on outcomes in bariatric surgery patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
      ] provide the first systematic review of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in bariatric surgery candidates and patients. Despite a dearth of studies evaluating the impact of ACEs on outcomes following bariatric surgery, this report serves as a valuable descriptor of the existing literature with well-reasoned recommendations for future research.

          Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are defined as childhood maltreatment (sexual, physical, and emotional abuse and neglect) and other childhood traumatic experiences. Published prevalence estimates for ACEs in bariatric samples vary greatly and evidence on the association between ACEs and bariatric surgery weight loss and psychosocial outcomes is inconclusive. A systematic literature search on PubMed/Medline, PsycInfo, Web of Science, CINAHL (Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature), and Open Grey for studies published until August 30, 2021, yielded 21 publications for qualitative synthesis: 20 reporting on prevalence of ACEs in bariatric surgery candidates and patients, and 10 on the association of ACEs with outcomes.
