Vibrynt Inc.

Building an obesity franchise outside of the stomach

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Vibrynt Inc.’s adjustable VIBRYNT PREVAIL Implant System is a saline-filled, silicone bladder designed to limit the stomach's ability to expand beyond the size of a small tube, and thus limit food consumption and calorie intake. The permanent implant is placed laparoscopically on the top of but still outside the stomach, and is designed to occupy the space that the stomach would normally expand to as a meal is eaten. Unlike the currently available surgical options, with the Vibrynt system there is no altering of the gastrointestinal anatomy and there are no restrictions on the types of healthy foods patients can eat.
