Abstract

Endoscopic bariatric procedures are gaining traction as possible minimally invasive treatment modalities for obesity. This article focuses on the various endoscopic devices and procedures that pertain to primary and revisional treatments. Additionally, the article discusses the potential for applying these various devices and procedures to other points of intervention, including early intervention, bridge to surgery, and primary metabolic treatment (eg, diabetes management). Devices that are currently in human use are preferentially discussed, followed by references to devices that may see clinical use in the near future.
