Intragastric Balloon

How It Works

The Spatz3 Gastric Balloon has 2 components:

The Balloon

The Spatz3 Adjustable Balloon is a medical grade, saline-filled gastric balloon that rests in the stomach cavity and decreases appetite by occupying approximately a third of the stomach volume. In addition, with the gastric balloon in place, the stomach empties more slowly, keeping you feeling full longer.

The Inflation Tube: Unique to the Spatz3 Gastric Balloon

The unique retractable inflation tube allows your doctor to make adjustments to the volume of your balloon while it remains in your stomach. These volume adjustments increase your chances of achieving success with the balloon.
