[Correspondence] Feedback of results to trial participants: be upfront or risk affront

We commend Erik Stenberg and colleagues for their well designed and delivered large randomised trial (April 2, p 1397),1 which investigated the utility of mesenteric defect closure in reducing the incidence of internal hernia after laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery. The study robustly answers the authors’ research question and a plenary audience at the European Obesity Summit in Gothenburg, Sweden, agreed almost unanimously that closure of mesenteric defects should now be standard practice.
