Obesity is a leading cause of preventable death in developed countries, with a rising incidence over time. Lifestyle modification, pharmacotherapy, and bariatric surgery are the mainstays of bariatric therapy, even though burdened by several limitations in terms of efficacy or safety. Bariatric endoscopy has been developed in the last decades as a minimally invasive alternative, aimed to bridge the gap between conservative and interventional conventional therapies. This review aims to provide an updated overview of the bariatric and metabolic available endoscopic procedures and to drive the choice of the right procedure for the right patient.

Abstract

Obesity is a leading cause of preventable death in developed countries, with a rising incidence over time. Lifestyle modification, pharmacotherapy, and bariatric surgery are the mainstays of bariatric therapy, even though burdened by several limitations in terms of efficacy or safety. Bariatric endoscopy has been developed in the last decades as a minimally invasive alternative, aimed to bridge the gap between conservative and interventional conventional therapies. This review aims to provide an updated overview of the bariatric and metabolic available endoscopic procedures and to drive the choice of the right procedure for the right patient.
