Barrett and funduplication

Luis Durand, Roberto De Antón, Miguel Caracoche, Enrique Covián, Mariano Gimenez, Pedro Ferraina, Lee Swanström
BACKGROUND: After improvements in antireflux surgery (ARS), a percentage of reherniations still has cause of failure attributed to a reopening of the hiatal closure or to an untreated short esophagus. However, the existence of short esophagus and its treatment results still are matters of debate. METHODS: The consecutive medical records containing prospective collective data for patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) during the period 2001-2009 were analyzed retrospectively...

INTRODUCTION: Oesophageal surgery for reflux stricture is as challenging in adults as in the paediatric age group. Several management protocols, both medical and surgical, are currently proposed, such as bougienage, funduplication without dilatation, funduplication with pre- and postoperative dilatation, resection and interposition, and pharmacological therapy. However, reported results are not univocal. The aim of this work is to demonstrate that preoperative treatment with H2-antagonist combined with oesophageal dilatation and followed by anterior funduplication (Boix-Ochoa procedure with elongation of intraabdominal segment of the oesophagus) is a long-term, effective treatment for reflux stricture in children...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the results of laparoscopic Nissen-Rossetti funduplication and to compare them with the results obtained in open surgery. DESIGN: Prospective, observational, longitudinal, pre and post-procedure. CENTERS: Beneficencia Española, Hospital Angeles, and Hospital Francisco Galindo Chávez, ISSSTE, in Torreón, Coahuila, Mexico. PATIENTS AND METHOD: From December 1992 to February 1999, 100 patients with surgical indications due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) prospectively underwent a laparoscopic Nissen-Rossetti procedure...

We have studied for periods averaging 111 months 16 survivors out of a series of 20 children treated for oesophageal atresia (EA) by neonatal end-to-end anastomosis. Twelve of them had gastroesophageal reflux (GER) manifested by either digestive (vomiting, dysphagia, pyrosis, haemorrhage or foreign body impaction) or respiratory symptoms (repeated neumoniae or frequent u.r.i.). pH-studies decealed very increased acid exposure in these patients. Manometric studies showed disorganized peristalsis with near-absence of propulsive waves and predominance of mass-contractions...
