Ingestible Gastric Balloon Placement

How is Elipse Gastric Balloon Insertion Made?

The placement of ingestible gastric balloons is performed without endoscopy and anesthesia. You swallow the compressed gastric balloon in capsule form with water under the control of your doctor. At the end of the capsule is a thin catheter that serves to inflate the gastric balloon. X-rays are used to ensure that the balloon you swallowed with the catheter at the end is in the correct position in the stomach. When it is seen that it is in the correct position, your doctor inflates the balloon with liquid with the help of a catheter. The final condition of the swollen gastric balloon is checked by going to the X-RAY machine and X-raying again. And your doctor slowly pulls the catheter out of your mouth and ends the insertion. The operation takes an average of 10-15 minutes. During the insertion; patients who have gastric balloon inserted are conscious and interact with us. Your doctor informs and directs you at every stage.
