Fundic mucosal ablation followed by endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty in the treatment of adults with obesity.
In this study, the investigators propose to investigate the effects of fundic ablation (FA) on circulating plasma ghrelin, satiation via standard nutrient drink test, and total body weight loss (TBWL), as well as the incidence of adverse events. Fundic ablation will be followed sequentially with endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG), to evaluate the combined impact of FA and ESG (FA-ESG).
Other Name: FA – ESG
