INTRODUCTION: Achalasia is a rare disorder in children who are commonly treated by laparoscopic Heller's myotomy (LHM). However, there are no large studies evaluating the results of LHM in the pediatric population, and the need of a concomitant fundoplication remains unclear. The aim of the study is to appraise the results of LHM based on a systematic literature review. MATERIALS AND METHODS: MEDLINE search of the English literature was performed for "achalasia," "children," "laparoscopy," "Heller," "myotomy," and "cardiomyotomy...

Sliding hiatal hernias are common and affect approximately 10% to 80% of the general population. The condition typically presents with reflux-type symptoms and is diagnosed either with imaging or endoscopy. In this case, the hernia presented as G-induced abdominal pain. The patient was an F-18 pilot who experienced worsening epigastric abdominal pain proportionate to the amount of accelerative force experienced. The pain would occur at approximately 3 Gs and increase beyond that. The patient was asymptomatic at rest and denied any dysphagia or reflux symptoms...

BACKGROUND: A randomized controlled trial (RCT) showed that laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF) and Hill (LHR) repairs are equivalent in treating uncomplicated GERD. We combined both repairs to create a laparoscopic Nissen-Hill Hybrid repair (HYB). The purpose of this study is to compare clinical and objective outcomes of a matched group of HYB to the two cohorts of the RCT. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from the RCT and a prospectively collected data base was performed...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is defined by the presence of troublesome symptoms resulting from the reflux of gastric contents. The prevalence of GERD is increasing globally. An incompetent lower esophageal sphincter underlies the pathogenesis of GERD. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) form the core of GERD management. However, a substantial number of patients do not respond well to PPIs. The next option is anti-reflux surgery, which is efficacious, but it has its own limitations, such as gas bloating, inability to belch or vomit, and dysphagia...

BACKGROUND: Per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is increasingly utilized to treat patients with achalasia. Early results have demonstrated significant improvement of symptoms, but there are concerns about postoperative reflux. With only limited comparative data available, we sought to compare POEM to laparoscopic Heller myotomy (LHM) with partial fundoplication. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of 42 POEM and 84 LHM patients undergoing primary myotomy for achalasia...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF) is the most common surgical procedure for the surgical management of gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Laparoscopic Toupet fundoplication (LTF) has been reported to have a lower prevalence of postoperative complications yet still obtain a similar level of reflux control. We conducted a meta-analysis to confirm the value of LNF and LTF. METHODS: PubMed, Medline, Embase, Cochrane Library and Springerlink were searched for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing LNF and LTF...

Only a minority of patients with gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) are offered a surgical option. This is mostly due to the fear of potential side effects, the variable success rate, and the extreme alteration of gastric anatomy with the current gold standard, the laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication. It has been reported that laparoscopic Toupet fundoplication (LTF) and laparoscopic sphincter augmentation using a magnetic device (LINX) can treat reflux more physiologically and with a lower incidence of side-effects and reoperation rate...

BACKGROUND: Pseudoachalasia is a rare diagnosis manifested by clinical and physiologic symptoms of achalasia, with alternative etiology for outflow obstruction. While malignancy is a frequent cause of pseudoachalasia, prior surgical intervention especially surgery involving the esophagogastric junction, may result in a misdiagnosis of achalasia. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of a 70 year-old male with dysphagia and weight loss after undergoing a Billroth I and Nissen fundoplication several decades ago...

Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is the current standard surgical option for complicated GERD and symptomatic hiatal hernia. Though comparable in safety, short-term efficacy, and patient satisfaction when compared with open operation, laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication has demonstrated shorter hospital stays and recuperative times. Commonly reported complications include gastric or esophageal injury, splenic injury, pneumothorax, bleeding, pneumonia, fever, wound infections, and dysphagia. We present an unusual case of gastropericardial fistula that developed as a late complication of laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication performed 4 years earlier...
