What is Intragastric Balloon / Gastric Balloon?
Gastric Balloon is applied endoscopically. The balloon with its suitable duration, which is decided according to the weight and preference of the patient, is released into the stomach and inflated. The inner area of the stomach is narrowed and creates a feeling of satiety because it creates fullness and is expected to be saturated with less amount when food is taken. The gastric balloon is again removed endoscopically. This is a daily operation. The patient is discharged in the same day.
