BACKGROUND: Obesity is a growing global epidemic with tremendous financial burden and health care costs worldwide. Restrictive surgery has emerged as the definitive treatment option to combat morbid obesity and its associated comorbidities. The advent of endoscopy has new grounds in obesity with the introduction of inflatable balloon placed in the stomach that decreases satiety by volume restriction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report a first case of gastric perforation with peritonitis after ReShape intragastric balloon placement that needed emergent surgical intervention...

Intragastric balloon (IGB) therapy is a widely used technique to counter obesity, and it is known to be safe and effective. Although there can be a high rate of side effects following IGB therapy, most are self-healing and they are mainly accommodative in nature. Few cases of Wernicke's syndrome under IGB therapy have been described in the literature, and to the best of our knowledge, none have been fatal. We present here a case of a 51-year-old woman who underwent IGB therapy over 8 months. Late diagnosed Wernicke's syndrome that first appeared as lower limb neuropathy progressively immobilized the patient, until she required bed rest...

BACKGROUND: Four commercially available intragastric balloons have been used for the management of obesity and underwent randomized controlled trials (RCTs), and we aimed to compare them using a network meta-analysis approach. METHODS: Several databases were queried from inception to May 26, 2017, and we included RCTs enrolling patients treated with Orbera, Heliosphere, ReShape Duo, and Obalon compared with another balloon, sham, or open-label control group. Two investigators independently abstracted data...

The historical concept that obesity protects against bone fractures has been questioned. Weight loss appears to reduce bone mineral density (BMD); however, the results in young adults are inconsistent, and data on the effects of weight loss on bone microstructure are limited. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of weight loss using an intragastric balloon (IGB) on bone density and microstructure. Forty obese patients with metabolic syndrome (mean age 35.1 ± 7.3 yr) used an IGB continuously for 6 mo...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a serious disease, with an increasing incidence also among subjects over 60 years old; surgical management has proven to be the most effective in the production of significant and durable weight loss. Intragastric balloon (IGB) treatment, promotes a reduction of five to nine body mass index (BMI) units in 6 months with an impressive improvement of obesity-associated comorbidities. METHODS: Two hundred and twenty five patients, 106 men (47...

BACKGROUND: The aim is to evaluate the effects of IGB in overweight or class I obese patients, by analyzing body composition and quality of life (QOL). METHODS: Prospective study including patients with BMI 27-34.9 kg/m2. body composition analysis (BCA) was performed before IGB implantation and its removal, after 6 months of treatment. QOL was assessed by the Short Form 36 (SF-36) Health Survey at baseline and after treatment. RESULTS: Forty patients were included in this study, but four were excluded...

A 25-year-old obese woman experienced ischemic renal injury as a complication of intragastric balloon (IGB) insertion for weight reduction. Although IGB is associated with a low risk of renal injury in the form of acute renal failure, this presentation has never been reported. The patient responded well to treatment, with complete clinical and radiologic resolution after balloon removal. She did not have an apparent cause of renal ischemia other than a significant compression of the renal vessels by the balloon as seen on imaging...

BACKGROUND: The BioEnterics Intragastric Balloon [BIB] is a reliable, non-invasive technique to manage obesity for subjects who refuse or are unsuitable for bariatric surgery. In a prior study, BIB placed in the antrum [A] was found to have significantly better results on weight loss in relation to that in fundus [F], but many balloons initially placed in the F were eventually found in the A. The aim of the present analysis was to evaluate whether the balloon position [firmly in F, firmly in A, or transient from F to A [FA]] influences the 3- and 6-month weight loss...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic balloons have been used for years to treat obese seeking weight loss. This study evaluated the safety and effectiveness of our lifestyle modification program. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from patients who underwent End-ball® (Endalis) intragastric balloon insertion with a multidisciplinary follow-up program. Demographic data, weight loss complications, and satisfaction rates were assessed. RESULTS: In total, 114 overweight/obese individuals from July 2012 to December 2015 were included...

Obesity is considered the most common nutritional disorder in Western countries and is related to multiple morbidity and mortality. There are different options for obesity treatment, including diet, behavioral therapy, medications, and surgery. If patients do not meet the criteria for bariatric surgery, intragastric balloons may be used to achieve weight reduction. Currently, the intragastric balloon is one of the most common bariatric procedures in obese patients in Europe. Gastric perforation associated with intragastric balloon is a rare but dangerous complication...

OBJECTIVE: to assess the short-term efficacy, tolerance and complications in high-risk morbidly obese patients treated with an intragastric balloon as a bridge for surgery. METHODS: we conducted a post-hoc analysis study in a Brazilian teaching hospital from 2010 to 2014, with 23 adult patients with a BMI of 48kg/m2, who received a single intragastric air or liquid balloon. We defined efficacy as 10% excess weight loss, and complications, as adverse events consequent to the intragastric balloon diagnosed after the initial accommodative period...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: The Orbera intragastric balloon (OIB) is a single fluid-filled intragastric balloon approved for induction of weight loss and treatment of obesity. However, little is known about the effectiveness and safety of outside clinical trials, and since approval, the Food and Drug Administration has issued warnings to health care providers about risk of balloon hyperinflation requiring early removal, pancreatitis, and death. We analyzed data on patients who have received the OIB since its approval to determine its safety, effectiveness, and tolerance in real-world clinical settings...

BACKGROUND: Bariatric surgery, despite being the most successful long-lasting treatment for morbid obesity, remains underused as only approximately 1% of all patients who qualify for surgery actually undergo surgery. To determine if patients in need are receiving appropriate therapy, the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery created a Numbers Taskforce to specify annual rate of use for obesity treatment interventions. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to determine metabolic and bariatric procedure trends since 2011 and to provide the best estimate of the number of procedures performed in the United States in 2016...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is on a continuous rise worldwide, and with it, novel bariatric procedures have emerged. The introduction of gastric balloons has opened up a nonsurgical option for patients opting for it. However, they still require some form of sedation and endoscopy for insertion and/or removal. OBJECTIVES: The Elipse balloon is a novel creation that has managed to bypass both these procedures; therefore, the investigation into its effectiveness is of importance...
