[The BIB intragastric balloon].
Ann Ital Chir 2006 Jul-Aug; 77(4):305-8AI

Abstract

INTRODUCTION

Since 1998, we adopted in our clinical practice for obesity treatment the new intragastric balloon (BioEnterics Intragastric Balloon, BIB), it has the characteristics of an "ideal gastric balloon" (Workshop Tarpon Springs, 1987).

MATERIALS AND METHODS

Since March 1998 we have placed by endoscopic approach 518 BIB in 480 patients affected by first, second and severe morbid obesity; 124 male and 356 female, mean age 41.6 years (18-72), mean weight Kg 116.9 (67-229), mean BMI 42 Kg/m2 (27.34-81.14). All our patients underwent to diet of 1000 Kcal/day and treatment with antisecretory drugs.

RESULTS

The mean weight lost was Kg 14.69 and the mean reduction in BMI was 5.11 Kg/m2. Weight loss was greater in male severe obese (BMI > 40). Weight was accompanied by an improvement of the disease associated with obesity, in particular diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnoea.

DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION

The best indication for BIB were: morbidly obese patients (BMI > 40) and super-obese patients (BMI > 50) in preparation for bariatric operation; obese patients with BMI 35-40 with co-morbilities in preparation for bariatric surgery; obese patients with BMI < 30 only in a multidisciplinary approach patients with BMI 30-35 with a chronic disease otherwise unresolved.
