Despite advances in lifestyle interventions, antiobesity medications and metabolic surgery, obesity׳s health burden continues to rise. Endoscopic bariatric techniques (EBTs) have arisen over the years that are efficacious, reversible, safe, and cost effective. These techniques potentially allow us to treat broader populations that are unable to undergo bariatric surgery. Gastric space–occupying devices are some of the most widely endoscopic metabolic therapies available. This review would summarize the gastric-occupying devices that are available in the US market or in advanced stages of development and regulatory approval.
