The field of medical and surgical weight loss is undergoing an explosion of new techniques and devices. A lot of these are geared towards endoscopic approaches rather than the conventional and more invasive laparoscopic or open approach. One such recent advance is the introduction of intrgastric balloons. In this article, we discuss the recently Food and Drug Administration approved following balloons for weight loss: the Orbera™ Intragastric Balloon System (Apollo Endosurgery Inc, Austin, TX, United States), the ReShape® Integrated Dual Balloon System (ReShape Medical, Inc...

Recently, the Elipse® swallow balloon with spontaneous evacuation has been incorporated. GETTEMO wants to position defending innovations in endoscopic treatment of bariatric patients, including this new gastric balloon. Any bariatric endoscopic procedure must always be done within a suitable protocol and in a Multidisciplinary Unit. In order to ensure maximum safety and to be able to effectively solve potential complications, in most of the cases a prior endoscopy should be required to rule out complications, the balloon must be implanted (or supervised) by a bariatric endoscopist and it is necessary to have an Endoscopic Emergency Department...

BACKGROUND: Intragastric balloons (IGBs) have demonstrated efficacy; however, the percent of "responders" (> 25% estimated weight loss (EWL) or > 10% total body weight loss (TBWL)-as suggested by FDA) have been less reported. The Spatz3 adjustable intragastric balloon (AIGB) extends implantation to 1 year, decreases balloon volume for intolerance, and increases volume for diminishing effect. AIM: The aim of this study is to determine the efficacy/responder rate of the Spatz3 AIGB...

Prevalence and incidence of obesity in the population has been increasing for decades. Due to associated comorbidities, treatment of obesity has become a global health topic and should be addressed with multimodal strategies. As conservative treatment has high rates of failure, bariatric surgery is often performed, especially in cases of severe obesity. However, interventional endoscopic options are gaining importance as less invasive approach. Intragastric balloons and duodenojejunal bypass liners are the most frequent applied endoscopic therapies...

Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is a novel surgical approach, currently performed for an array of conditions. Endoscopic procedures offer significant benefits, including lower cost, no surgical incisions, and shorter hospital stays. These advantages align with the current trends in health care, namely a push for "cost-effective care." There are a multitude of health issues which are now being addressed by the endoscopic surgical approach, including peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM), which is a relatively new technique used in the treatment of achalasia...

Intragastric Balloons are a temporary, reversible, and safer option compared to bariatric surgery to promote significant weight loss leading to improved metabolic outcomes. However due to subsequent weight regain, alternative procedures are now preferred in adults. In adolescents, more amenable to lifestyle change, balloons may be an alternative to less reversible procedures. Our aim was to assess the tolerability and efficacy of the intragastric balloon in severely obese adolescents and the impact of associated weight loss on biomedical outcomes (glucose metabolism, blood pressure, lipid profiles) and bone density...
