Extensive Thrombus and Brain Microabscesses After Sleeve Gastrectomy

Free full text article: Extensive Thrombus and Brain Microabscesses After Sleeve Gastrectomy

Abstract
Sleeve gastrectomy is a relatively newer bariatric surgical procedure and has become the most common of all bariatric surgeries performed. Complication rates reported with sleeve gastrectomies are relatively low and are generally due to staple line leaks, hemorrhage, or sleeve stricture. Portal vein thrombosis is an uncommon but potentially dangerous complication. We present a case of a 21-year-old woman who developed thrombosis of the portal, splenic, and right common iliac veins that then resulted in multifocal brain abscesses from presumed Fusobacterium septic emboli following an uncomplicated laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
