Abstract

Transoral gastroplasty (TOGA) is a safe and less invasive procedure than traditional bariatric surgery. We studied the effects of TOGA on the risk of progression from prediabetes to overt type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) or on regression from diabetes or prediabetes to a lower risk category.
