Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy or increased health problems.
Body mass index (BMI), a measurement which compares weight and height, specifies people as overweight when their BMI is between 25 kg/m2 and 30 kg/m2 and obese when it is greater than 30 kg/m2. Intragastric balloons are one of the newer forms of weight loss surgery.
The Intra Gastric Balloon is a simple gastric surgery devise, fitted inside the stomach, to create short term & rapid weight loss. It is a soft, expandable, silicone balloon that is placed inside the stomach via a camera that enters through the mouth and into the stomach. Once inserted in the stomach, the empty balloon is filled with sterile saline.
Procedure – In this video of intra gastric balloon surgery, the balloon is introduced into the stomach through the mouth without the need for surgery. Insertion of the intra gastric Balloon is a non-surgical way of aiding weight-loss. The physician inserts an endoscopic camera (gastroscope) into the stomach. If no abnormalities are observed, the physician proceeds with the placement of the balloon through the mouth and down the oesophagus into the stomach. Once the balloon is inside the stomach, it is filled with sterile saline through a small filling tube attached to the balloon. Once filled, the doctor removes the tube by gently pulling it out, leaving the balloon inside the stomach.
The balloon fills a large portion of the stomach, and therefore reduces the capacity of the stomach. This creates a feeling of fullness for the patient and does not allow for overeating, therefore allowing the patient to effectively diet without feeling continuously hungry. Unlike other mechanical weight loss solutions, the intra gastric balloon surgery involves no surgical incisions or stapling, and is fully reversible.
