Gastric Balloon Treatment in Bangladesh
Gastric Balloon, also known as gastric sleeve, is a surgical weight-loss operation. The Gastric Balloon can be a valuable and minimally invasive method of treating obesity and related conditions. It is used to help obese people lose weight, typically those with a BMI of greater than 35 kg/m2 or 30 kg/m2 with some comorbidities.
Endoscopically inserting a deflated balloon in the stomach and then filling it to reduce the amount of intragastric space is known as intragastric balloon placement. It can be held in the stomach for up to 6 months, resulting in a weight loss of 10-15 kg in half a year. It can be used in patients who are obese but do not qualify for a sleeve gastrectomy.
