2. Spatz Balloon – The Spatz balloon system is a more suitable choice for patients who have higher weight loss goals, of more than 15 kg, and who would benefit from a longer than 6-month therapy. The Spatz balloon is unique for both adjustability and a longer therapy period (12-months). It’s the only gastric balloon that provides adjustability feature in terms of increasing or decreasing its volume after insertion using an endoscopy.
In the rare instances where patients experience a more prolonged discomfort after the insertion of the balloon, they can benefit from decreasing the volume of their balloon. On the other hand, those who show limited response to the balloon have the option of getting it increased in volume to boost its weight loss effect.
