Rapid onset of Wernicke's encephalopathy following gastric restrictive surgery.
Obes Surg. 2003 Aug; 13(4):661-2.OS

Abstract

A patient with severe vomiting following gastric banding developed Wernicke's encephalopathy. All neurological disorders disappeared with thiamine treatment. This complication may be prevented by keen awareness, early diagnosis and treatment, in patients with persistent vomiting. Vitamin and mineral supplementation must be taken in patients following bariatric surgery.
