Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common disorder, known to affect about 20% of the Western population. Although conventional medical or surgical treatment has proven effective, there is certainly room for improvements. As only 10% of GERD patients are finally treated by antireflux surgery, a large therapeutic window exists. This treatment gap consists of patients who are not effectively treated with proton pump inhibitor but do not want to run the potential risks of conventional surgery. During the last two decades, several novel and intriguing options for the surgical treatment of GERD have been introduced and found their way into clinical use...

BACKGROUND: We sought to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of magnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) in patients with GERD after bariatric surgery. METHODS: Pre- and post-operative GERD quality of life (G-QOL) surveys were conducted. Standard indications (SI) group or the post-bariatric group (PB) created. Outcomes were compared between groups. RESULTS: Twenty-eight patients analyzed with no losses to follow-up. All patients had preoperative testing confirming normal motility and presence of GERD...

Esophageal symptoms can arise from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) as well as other mucosal and motor processes, structural disease, and functional esophageal syndromes. GERD is the most common esophageal disorder, but diagnosis may not be straightforward when symptoms persist despite empiric acid suppressive therapy and when mucosal erosions are not seen on endoscopy (as for nonerosive reflux disease, NERD). Esophageal physiological tests (ambulatory pH or pH-impedance monitoring and manometry) can be of value in defining abnormal reflux burden and reflux-symptom association...

Background and study aims:  Us of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) has made endoscopic treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) more efficient, with reduction in morbidity and complications. However, some patients persist with symptoms despite medical treatment and some are not compliant with it or cannot afford it for financial reasons, and thus they require non-pharmacological therapeutic options such as surgical fundoplication. Surgery may be effective in the short term, but there is related morbidity and concern about its long-term efficacy...

As per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) is not followed by any anti-reflux procedure, a common concern is the risk of postoperative gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Electrical stimulation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES-EST) could be an option for post-POEM GERD. A 68-year old male obese patient underwent successful POEM but developed GERD not responsive to proton pump inhibitors. Consecutively, the patient had implanted an electrical LES stimulation device, consisting of bipolar LES-electrodes connected to a subcutaneous pulse generator...

Barium upper GI series performed by an interested and competent radiologist is still a very useful study to evaluate a variety of esophagogastric disorders. It usually provides information complementary to upper endoscopy and other foregut studies. Barium upper GI series is an important part of the diagnostic workup for gastroesophageal reflux disease, hiatal hernia, and esophageal motility disorders including achalasia. It is also an important part of the follow-up after operation for these common problems and after other operations such as resection or bariatric surgery...

Background: Although a variety of antireflux procedures and medications are used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), reliable large-animal models of GERD that can be used to objectively compare the efficacy of these treatments are lacking. We developed a method to establish large animal models of GERD by endoscopic sphincterotomy to develop an endoscopic treatment for GERD. Methods: In this study six flesh swine carcasses were used. A full thickness incision was made at the esophageal site 5 cm above the dentate line by per-oral endoscopic tunneling...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is defined as a “disease that develops when the reflux of stomach contents induces troublesome symptoms and/or complications”. From a therapeutic point of view, many options have been proposed, including proton pump inhibitors (PPI), antihistamines (H2- receptor antagonists), antacid chemical compounds, antireflux barrier (using alginates), prokinetics, inhibitors of gastric sphincters, protection of mucosal tissue, neuromodulators, nociceptor antagonists, lifestyle modification, and surgery...

Laparoscopic duodenal switch is a recognized bariatric procedure, which can be performed in one step or as a second step after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG). Mainly, indications as primary surgery are super-obese or super super-obese patients, and after LSG indications are the presence of insufficient weight loss or weight regain, associated with morbid obesity co-morbidities, without gastroesophageal reflux. In this video, the authors report the technique of reduced port laparoscopic duodenal switch after LSG...

ᅟ: Obesity is a global epidemic and will soon become the number one priority in healthcare management. Bariatric surgery causes a significant improvement in obesity and its related complications. Pre-operative esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (EGD) is done by several bariatric surgical teams across the world but is still not mandatory. AIM: To study the percentage of symptomatic and asymptomatic pathological EGD findings in obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery and to analyze whether these findings influence the eventual choice of bariatric surgery...

BACKGROUND: Revisional surgery is the fastest growing area in bariatric surgery, constituting 13.6% of all procedures performed as of 2015. This reflects a rising need to treat adverse sequelae of primary bariatric procedures. Despite the increase in revisions, their safety and efficacy remain controversial. The objective of this study is to review the experience of revisional bariatric surgery in our center and the relevant literature to date. METHODS: We performed an IRB-approved review of prospectively collected data from all patients undergoing revisional bariatric surgery between 2012 and 2015...

OBJECTIVES: Fundoplication is commonly performed in patients with a history of esophageal atresia (EA), however, the success of this surgery is reduced, as reflected by an increased rate of redo fundoplication. We aimed to determine whether EA impacts the prevalence of fundoplication, its timing, and performance of a redo operation. STUDY DESIGN: A single-center, retrospective review of all patients undergoing fundoplication over a 20-year period (1994-2013) was performed...

Advanced lung disease is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The thoracoabdominal pressure gradient (TAPG) facilitates gastroesophageal reflux, but the effects of TAPG on gastroesophageal reflux in patients with pulmonary disease have not been well defined. Patients diagnosed with end-stage lung disease are expected to have the most extreme derangement in respiratory mechanics. The aim of this study is to explore the relationship between TAPG and reflux in lung transplant (LTx) candidates...

Gastroesophageal reflux is a latent factor that may cause esophagitis, esophageal stenosis, and aspiration pneumonia through the regurgitation of the gastric fluid contents. For laparoscopic surgery, posture-changing and pneumoperitoneum operations are conducted to develop the visual field. However, few studies have examined the influence of these operations on gastroesophageal reflux. In this experiment using 10 Beagles, 10 mL of contrast medium was administered into the stomach, and the dogs were placed in the Trendelenburg position with 10-degree tilting...
