Factors affecting the treatment outcomes of laparoscopic fundoplication for erosive reflux esophagitis: findings of esophageal pathological function tests

ConclusionThe results of this study indicate that esophageal clearance may affect the treatment outcome of LF. Based on the findings of MII-pH, the longest reflux time and the number of refluxes longer than 5  min were important factors influencing the therapeutic effect, whereas based on the HRM, the DCI value was most important.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is the most commonly performed bariatric procedure worldwide; due to its extensive impact and analysis, multiple procedure-related early and late complications have been described. Gastroesophageal reflux and Barrett's esophagus are highly debated issues related to sleeve gastrectomy in long-term follow-up. This review aims to explore the association between sleeve gastrectomy and gastroesophageal reflux in terms of their occurrence, and to analyze the protective or a...

Epub 2021 Apr 13.ABSTRACTGastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has been a problem for patients throughout in recent decades worldwide and its prevalence is increasing. Until 20 years ago, the established treatments were the proton pump inhibitors (PPI) and varieties of laparoscopic fundoplication (LF). Increasing experience with endoscopy and knowledge of the oesophagogastric junction (EGJ) has led to new options in the treatment of GERD. However, promising short term effects have been found with radiofrequency ablation (RFA, Stretta device), endoscopic mu...
