Intragastric Balloon
The IGB System consists of a soft, expandable balloon, the placement tube and a filling system so a physician can orally insert the weight loss aid.
Once inserted in the stomach, the empty balloon is filled with either sterile saline or air (depends on the type of balloon being used and the preference of the surgeon). When full, the balloon is too large to pass into the bowel and will now float freely in the stomach. The balloon is then filled with saline solution that partially fills the stomach. You will have then the feeling of fullness even after eating smaller amount of food.
