Introduction: Descriptive observational study in which the sample is made up of the 14 patients treated with balloon Lexbal«. Objectives: The objectives of the study were to evaluate the effectiveness and response to balloon (Lexbal«) in the treatment of mild to moderate obesity. Methods: We conducted an observational and retrospective study at Hospital Paroissien. We have compiled the results of 14 follow intragastric balloons (Balloon Lexbal«) in obese patients with mild to moderate type I-II (BMI between 28 and 34.9 kg/m2) placed during 2012 and 2017 and weight losses have been achieved over 70% of excess weight. Furthermore, patient satisfaction has been observed in our sample. Measurements: Descriptive observational study in which the sample is made up of 14 patients treated with balloon Lexbal« in our midst. Results: Over 80% of patient satisfaction was observed with 70% decrease in weight above the average (over 12 kilos). A better response was found in those presenting adherence to nutritional treatment and no differences were observed in the volume of filling the balloon. Conclusions: Treatment with intragastric balloon, along with a nutritional monitoring allows us to re-educate the patient and change their eating habits. Just for gradual diet, and to adapt each phase as tolerated by the patient, helps us to improve dietary behavior and facilitates greater weight loss. The intragastric balloon is a safe, well tolerated, with few adverse effects and relatively simple in the hands accustomed to endoscopic practice. We believe it can be considered an effective adjunctive therapy in selected cases of mild/ moderate obesity (type I-II).
