Reflux parameters as modified by EsophyX or laparoscopic fundoplication in refractory GERD

BACKGROUND: EsophyX is a novel transoral incisionless fundoplication device developed to mimic surgical fundoplication. EsophyX fundoplication improves acid reflux parameters in proton pump inhibitor (PPI)-responsive GERD patients but its efficacy in refractory GERD has been scarcely studied. AIM: To assess reflux parameters before and after EsophyX or laparoscopic fundoplication and their relationship with symptoms in… Read more »
