Seizure Controlled after Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Operation: A Case Report of an Obese Epileptic Patient

Author(s): Feng Cao, Chuang Yang, Pengwei Cao, Yanyan Xu, Yong Wang

Background: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy(LSG) has been widely used for treating severe obesity, but the recovery of epilepsy after surgery still remained unclear.

Case presentation: We herein described a case of a 31-year-old female obese patient with epilepsy who received laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in The Second Hospital of Anhui Medical University in 2018. After follow-up for one year, her body mass index was dropped from 63.9 kg/m2 to 38.6 kg/m2. Besides she had complete seizure remission and had complete freedom from medication. Her electroencephalogram (EEG) records were normal and showed no recurrence of epilepsy.

Conclusions: We believe that the improvement of epilepsy by such surgery further emphasize majority of the researchers, and eventually investigate the relevant and clear underlying mechanism.
