The Allurion (aka Elipse) swallowable gastric balloon is a new innovation in balloon technology requiring no surgery, no endoscopy, and no anaesthesia. Traditionally gastric balloon procedures have involved a 3-4 hour hospital stay for an endoscopic insertion followed by a second visit when it’s ready for removal. Not anymore.
The Allurion swallowable gastric balloon requires no hospital admission, just a 20 minute outpatient appointment. There is no endoscopy to feed the balloon down the throat, you simply swallow the capsule with a glass of water. When its position is confirmed via x-ray, the balloon is filled with a saline solution and the small catheter removed. As no sedation is used, you can even drive yourself home.
