Background and study aims Incidence of morbid obesity has grown dramatically in the last half century and this phenomenon affects with particular severity the pediatric population. Dietary restrictions and careful programs to improve lifestyle are often ineffective to manage this particular group of patients, due to poor compliance typical of the adolescence. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a new intragastric balloon for treatment of morbidly obese children. Patients and methods A new swallowable intragastric balloon (Obalon) has been used for the first time in 17 obese children in order to assess its safety and effectiveness in terms of reduction in excess weight...

A new paradigm in the treatment of obesity and metabolic disease is developing. The global obesity epidemic continues to expand despite the availability of diet and lifestyle counseling, pharmacologic therapy, and weight loss surgery. Endoscopic procedures have the potential to bridge the gap between medical therapy and surgery. Current primary endoscopic bariatric therapies can be classified as restrictive, bypass, space-occupying, or aspiration therapy. Restrictive procedures include the USGI Primary Obesity Surgery Endolumenal procedure, endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty using Apollo OverStitch, TransOral GAstroplasty, gastric volume reduction using the ACE stapler, and insertion of the TERIS restrictive device...

BACKGROUND: Lifestyle interventions are often ineffective in the treatment of pediatric obesity. Weight loss devices have been introduced for the temporary nonsurgical treatment of morbid obesity. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of Obalon Intragastric Balloon on weight loss and on metabolic and cardiovascular parameters in a pediatric population with severe obesity. METHODS: We enrolled 10 children with severe obesity...

The goal of this study was to evaluate the safety and the impact on weight loss of a new swallowable gastric balloon. In this prospective pilot study, 17 overweight or obese patients were included. Up to three balloons were ingested under fluoroscopic control. All balloons were removed by upper GI endoscopy, 12 weeks after the ingestion of the first balloon. 43 out of 44 attempts (98 %) to swallow a balloon were successful. Nausea and stomach pain were the most frequent side effects. Endoscopic procedures for balloon removal were uneventful...
