Experimental: Responsive Neurostimulation
Surgical arm. Patients expected to receive treatment.
Device: responsive neurostimulation
The RNS® System is a novel, implantable therapeutic device that delivers responsive neurostimulation, an advanced technology designed to continuously monitor brain electrical activity, detect abnormal electrical activity and respond by delivering imperceptible levels of electrical stimulation to normalize that activity before an individual experiences seizures. This is an Early Feasibility Study determining the safety and efficacy of NAc-RNS in the treatment of LOC eating in treatment-refractory obesity.
- Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Related Adverse Events [Safety and Tolerability] [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
Safety of the RNS System and NAc stimulation through evaluation of AE's graded as "related" (vs. not related) to the intervention that will be graded based on severity.
Grade 1 Mild AE Grade 2 Moderate AE Grade 3 Severe AE Grade 4 Life-threatening or disabling AE Grade 5 Death related to AE
- Count of Participants Exhibiting Overall Decrease in Loss of Control Episodes Per Week [ Time Frame: 5 years ]This endpoint will be met if at least 50% of subjects exhibiting a decrease in the number of Loss of Control (LOC) episodes per week. LOC episodes will be assessed by the currently available standard, ecological momentary assessment (EMA) diary entries.
