Intragastric balloon is a medical device which is placed in the stomach for the treatment of obesity when diet and exercise fail to function for an individual. It is a saline or gas-filled balloon which is inserted through an endoscopic procedure into the stomach of an individual. Since it is placed in the stomach, it confines the amount of food that stomach can hold, thereby providing an early feeling of satiety. Feeling of fullness by the placement of balloon can also be attributed to the changes in levels of hormones that control the appetite. This device can be used by individuals having body mass index (BMI) between 30-40 kg/m2. It should not be implanted into an individual if there has been any previous esophageal, stomach or intestinal surgery. Individuals with intestinal problems such as, inflammatory bowel disease or delayed gastric emptying, pregnant women and those who consume nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as, aspirin regularly are also advised not to undergo intragastric balloon surgery. The device is removed after the six months of insertion by endoscopy again.
