(a) Endoscopic picture of the gastric lumen showing BIB Placement Catheter Assembly while the balloon is still uninflated. The balloon must be below the lower esophageal sphincter and well within the stomach cavity. (b) Endoscopic picture of the gastric lumen showing partially infl ated BIB in situ (300 ml of sterile saline). (c) Endoscopic picture of the gastric lumen showing fully inflated BIB in situ (700 ml of sterile saline). (d) Endoscopic picture of the gastric lumen showing fully inflated BIB in situ at the end of 6-month therapy duration.
