Abstract

Endoscopic bariatric therapy consists of devices or procedures for primary weight loss or weight regain after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass that are placed or done endoscopically. In most cases, they result in less weight loss, but fewer complications than bariatric surgery; and more weight loss than lifestyle therapy or weight loss medications. These therapies are important advances to treat patients with obesity. This article focuses on therapies or devices with US Food and Drug Administration approval or those with current or planned US pivotal trials.
