Expanded Clinical Data Set for the Obalon Balloon System Presented at DDW 2019
In the presentation at DDW, average weight loss for indicated patients receiving three balloons and six months of therapy was 21.7 pounds, resulting in a 10.2% reduction in total body weight. Of note, 50.7% of patients lost ≥ 10% total body weight and 77.9% lost ≥ 5% total body weight. Weight loss in the first months of therapy was the largest predictor of success. Non-serious adverse events occurred in 10.3% of the patients with the most common being abdominal pain (3.8%), nausea (3.0%), and vomiting (1.7%). There were no serious adverse events (SAEs) reported.
“The Obalon Balloon registry is the largest endoscopic bariatric therapy registry series in the US. The additional data collected showed significant weight loss in patients treated with this therapy in clinical practice with a good safety profile. These results remain consistent with our previous publications,” said
