Weight loss in patients who are overweight or suffering from non-morbid obesity (BMI > 27) and who have not been able to achieve lasting weight loss as part of a medicalized weight loss program.
Weight loss in excessively obese patients (BMI > 40, or BMI > 35 with serious physiological risks) unable or unwilling to undergo obesity surgery.
Placing and removing the ball
The Allurion balloon is placed under radiological control without anesthesia or endoscopy simply by swallowing a capsule. It evacuates alone 16 weeks on average after installation.
The nutritional and behavioral support associated with the balloon with one consultation per month provides a much better result than the placement of the balloon alone. The average weight loss is 14 kg, for a 100 kg patient, but the results remain heterogeneous.
It was also found a beneficial effect of the ball on the risk of diabetes, arterial hypertension, sleep apnea and dyslipidemia.
