We present the case of a 42-year-old female patient who successfully and uneventfully underwent gastric sleeve surgery 3-years after left gastric artery embolization, for the treatment of obesity. This case highlights that left gastric artery embolization may not preclude future bariatric surgeries in this subset of patients who initially fail to lose weight after bariatric arterial embolization (BAE).
