How gastric balloon is placed in the stomach?
Placing a balloon in the stomach does not require surgery, because it is inserted through the mouth.In the initial phase of the surgery the doctor carried out a preliminary examination of the stomach using endoscopic probe.If it finds any anomalies, continues the treatment by inserting a balloon through the mouth and esophagus to the stomach.The balloon is made of soft, supple and flexible silicone material.Is placed in the stomach in the form of the blank when it is small and easy to swallow.The process of swallowing a balloon is further supported by local anesthesia administered.Drugs are also used muscle relaxants.When the balloon is already in the stomach is filled with sterile saline through a small tube attached to the balloon.After filling the balloon doctor removes the tube gently pulling on its end.Balloon has a self-closing valve, which means that it is tightly closed.Since then, the balloon floats freely in the stomach.The procedure usually takes between 20 to 30 minutes, after which for a time the patient is under medical supervision, and then allowed to go home, or stay in the clinic for further observation.
