The Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation commissioned a Research Consensus Panel to establish a research agenda on "Obesity Therapeutics" in interventional radiology (IR). The meeting convened a multidisciplinary group of physicians and scientists with expertise in obesity therapeutics. The meeting was intended to review current evidence on obesity therapies, familiarize attendees with the regulatory evaluation process, and identify research deficiencies in IR bariatric interventions, with the goal of prioritizing future high-quality research that would move the field forward. The panelists agreed that a weight loss of >8%-10% from baseline at 6-12 months is a desirable therapeutic endpoint for future IR weight loss therapies. The final consensus on the highest priority research was to design a blinded randomized controlled trial of IR weight loss interventions versus sham control arms, with patients receiving behavioral therapy.
