subsequent removal of the balloon under propofol sedation. Balloons were smoothly inserted into the stomach by traction under direct endoscopy vision and were positioned in the upper stomach position. The balloon was filled with a saline solution and methylene blue, to help in locating and removal of the balloon. Patients were followed for five to seven months in a multidisciplinary clinical setting, including a gastroenterologist, endocrinologist, nutritionist, psychologist and psychiatrist. The balloon was removed after the five to seven month observation.

Participants across all obesity grades experienced significant weight loss, losing an average of 9.18 percent of initial weight. Patients with an obesity grade 3 experienced a more significant average weight loss of 12.2 percent of initial weight.

"This study reinforces the concept, efficacy and safety of intragastric balloon procedures for treatment of overweight and obesity," said Dr. Elia. "This is a reversible procedure that can be considered as an alternative weight-loss treatment option, particularly in pre-obese patients with a history of failure in other clinical treatments."

Dr. Elia cautioned that the intragastric balloon and intragastric balloon procedures are not a miracle weight loss method; after the balloon is extracted, weight loss maintenance depends exclusively on a combination of a calorie-restricted diet, physical activity and behavior modification.

Dr. Elia will present these data on Monday, May 3 at 8 a.m. CT in Hall F, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Intragastric Air-Filled Balloon with New Features for Obesity (Bioflex): Preliminary Results (Abstract #W1582)
