Efficacy and Safety of Intragastric Balloon for Obesity and Pre-Obese Patients: A Brazilian Experience (Abstract #M1515)

New research from Gastroendo Medical Group in Brazil has found intragastric saline-filled balloons to be a safe, effective and minimally invasive weight-loss treatment for pre-obese and obese patients, and may offer an alternative weight-loss treatment option for patients who may not be eligible for gastric bypass to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with obesity.

Since the initial designs in the 1980s, the intragastric balloon procedure designs have progressed to eliminate many of the complications initially associated with the procedure, namely a smooth, seamless balloon constructed from a long-lasting material with a low ulcerogenic (tending to develop into ulcers) and obstruction potential, as well as the ability to adjust the balloon size and to fill the balloon with fluid instead of air. While this procedure has been employed internationally and in the U.S. for some time, this study may help establish expanded indications for intragastric balloon procedures including pre-obese patients.

Over a 15 month period, 81 patients completed the study using the intragastric balloon. Patients were divided along BMIs in four grades: pre-obese (BMI < 30), obesity grade 1 (BMI 30-34.9), obesity grade 2 (BMI 35-39.9) and obesity grade 3 (BMI ≥ 40). Prior to the procedure, each patient had failed to respond to previous clinical treatment for weight loss including, a calorie-restricted diet, physical activity, behavior modification and pharmacotherapy.
