Feasibility and Ease of Implantation [ Time Frame: < 1day ]
Percent of subjects whose device implantation was rated by the surgeon as a 1 or 2 on a 5-point scale, where 1 is "very easy" and 5 is "impossible."
Performance and Effectiveness as measured by feasibility and ease of implantation, and weight loss, % excess weight loss and BMI reduction. Safety as measured by Adverse and Serious Adverse Events. [ Time Frame: 12 months with further 12 month follow-up ]

  • % Excess Weight Loss [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Percent excess weight loss was defined as weight loss divided by excess weight multiplied by 100, where weight loss was equal to baseline weight minus follow-up weight, and excess weight was equal to baseline weight minus ideal weight.
  • Change in BMI [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Decrease in body mass index (BMI; measured in kg/m2) from baseline to 12 months
  • Change in Weight [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
