VBLOC® – Vagal Blocking Therapy for Weight Reduction 

VBLOC-imageVBLOC® is a first-in-class weight loss treatment designed to treat a range of gastrointestinal and metabolic diseases. Delivered by a pacemaker-like device called the Maestro® Rechargeable System,VBLOC Therapy is designed to block vagal nerve signaling between the brain and stomach believed to be responsible for multiple mechanisms involving metabolic control, food intake and processing, as well as sensations of hunger, satisfaction and fullness. The Maestro Rechargeable System is limited by federal law to investigational use in the United States where EnteroMedics is currently conducting a pivotal trial, the ReCharge Study.
