Gastric Balloon Techniques

The gastric balloon procedure is based on several types of medical balloons that are inserted into the stomach through the mouth, but they differ in terms of the filling material, which may be saline solution or hydrogen gas,They also differ in terms of the duration of stay in the stomach and the rate of weight loss resulting from it. The most prominent types of gastric balloon used in the operation are the following:

  • Orbera balloon

gastric balloon capsule

The stomach balloon capsule or the smart capsule is a compressed balloon the size of a vitamin capsule connected to a catheter, and it is filled with air when it reaches the stomach to occupy the stomach, approximately one third of the stomach, which helps reduce the person’s consumption of food.

The gastric capsule is characterized by the fact that it does not need an endoscope to insert it or anesthesia like a stomach balloon. Rather, it is a simple, non-surgical procedure, and you do not need to remove it either, as it fades by itself after 4 months.
