*In rare cases the balloon may require removal with endoscopy. Also, for a very small number of patients, the empty balloon at the end of residence may be vomited instead of passing through the digestive tract.
**Results may vary from one patient to another. A small percentage of patients don’t respond to the treatment.
***Eligibility for a sequential Elipse balloon is evaluated at the time prior to each placement to ensure you still meet requirements
