A 71-year-old woman who had a family history of esophageal cancer presented with symptoms of chronic heartburn. The patient expressed interest in definitive treatment, declining long-term medical therapy and opting to undergo transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) ([Fig. 1]). This was accomplished by using the EsophyX Device (EndoGastric Solutions, San Mateo, California, USA). Before and after the TIF procedure, an EndoFLIP Endolumenal Functional Lumen Imaging Probe (Crospon, Carlsbad, California, USA) was used to measure the luminal compliance and high pressure zone of the gastroesophageal junction. EndoFLIP utilizes impedance planimetry technology to measure the geometry and physical properties of hollow lumina. The patient was observed for 24 hours after the procedure and was discharged in a stable condition.
