This article was originally published in PharmAsia News
Doctors at Vietnam's Trieu An hospital collaborated with Singapore-based physicians on a new weight-loss solution. Representatives for the hospital announced that they have successfully performed the procedure on three patients. During the procedure, doctors put a small silicone ball into the stomachs of the patient through their mouths. The ball is then inflated to the appropriate size with a natrium chloride solution.

The physicians say the procedure is safe and can be completed in between 20 minutes and 30 minutes. Patients can be sent home after only one or two hours. (Click here for more
