INTRODUCTION: Nissen fundoplication is the golden standard for surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Numerous studies report excellent short-term results. However, data regarding long-term quality of life are lacking. The aim of this study is to investigate the long-term quality of life after Nissen fundoplication in patients with GERD and to compare this with the short-term results. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analysed all patients who underwent laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication for GERD between January 2004 and January 2016...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a diagnostic and therapeutic algorithm for gastroesophageal reflux disease complicated by Barrett's esophagus in 46 patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A diagnostic and therapeutic algorithm for complicated GERD was developed. To describe the changes in the esophagus with reflux esophagitis, the Los Angeles classification was used. Intestinal metaplasia of the epithelium in the lower third of the esophagus was assessed using videoendoscopy, chromoscopy, and biopsy...

Importance: Cohort studies, mainly based on questionnaires and interviews, have reported high rates of reflux recurrence after antireflux surgery, which may have contributed to a decline in its use. Reflux recurrence after laparoscopic antireflux surgery has not been assessed in a long-term population-based study of unselected patients. Objectives: To determine the risk of reflux recurrence after laparoscopic antireflux surgery and to identify risk factors for recurrence...

Laryngeal granulomas are benign lesions located in the posterior third of the glottis, mainly at the level of the vocal apophysis of the arytenoid cartilage. They are typically associated with three etiological factors: endotracheal intubation, inappropriate voice use and/or gastroesophageal reflux. The formation of a post-intubation laryngeal granuloma is a late complication related to intubation injury. It is uncommon in the child, especially if the period of intubation is short. It is usually unilateral and produces dysphonia, pharyngeal foreign body sensation and cough...

A substantial decrease in Helicobacter pylori-associated peptic ulcer disease has been observed during the last decades. Drug-related ulcers as well as idiopathic ulcers are becoming predominant and are more refractory to treatment; however, H. pylori infection still plays an important role in ulcer bleeding and recurrence after therapy. The effect of H. pylori eradication upon functional dyspepsia symptoms has been reviewed in this article and generally confirms the results of previous meta-analyses. Additional evidence suggests a lack of impact upon the quality of life, in spite of improvement in symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is considered to be the standard approach for the surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Various trials have assessed the outcome of the operation performed in high-volume centers, but the existing evidence regarding peripheral, low-volume hospitals is scarce. The purpose of this study is to investigate the late outcome of laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication with regard to symptom control and postoperative quality of life in a community-hospital setting...

It is generally recognized that in patients with an intact stomach diagnosed with esophageal cancer, gastric tubulization and pull-up shall always be the preferred technique for reconstruction after an esophageal resection. However, in cases with extensive gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer with aboral spread and after previous gastric surgery, alternative methods for reconstruction have to be pursued. Moreover, in benign cases as well as in those with early neoplastic lesions of the esophagus and the GEJ that are associated with long survival, it is basically unclear which conduit should be recommended...

Up to 40% of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) report persistent symptoms despite proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy. This review outlines the evidence for surgical and endoscopic therapies for the treatment of PPI nonresponsive GERD. A literature search for GERD therapies from 2005 to 2015 in PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews identified 2928 unique citations. Of those, 45 unique articles specific to surgical and endoscopic therapies for PPI nonresponsive GERD were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Patients with class I obesity and refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease may not qualify for bariatric surgery, and the effectiveness of laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication remains controversial. This study evaluates the early efficacy of laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication in patients with class I and II obesity. METHODS: Data for patients who underwent laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication between 2009 and 2014 were collected prospectively. Cohorts were stratified based on body mass index at the time of surgery: Nonobese (body mass index <30 kg/m(2)), class I obese (body mass index 30-34...

BACKGROUND: A minority of patients undergoing surgery for refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) will require revision antireflux surgery ("redo-ARS") for persistent symptoms or complications. Although a repeat minimally invasive procedure for revision may be technically challenging due to post-operative changes, studies are beginning to show favourable data for the laparoscopic approach. METHOD: From a single institution 41 consecutive cases of laparoscopic redo-ARS performed by the same surgeon were classified by mode of presentation to analyse their intra-operative findings, management and post-operative outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Adequate muscle relaxation is important for ensuring optimal conditions for intubation. Although acceleromyography of the adductor pollicis muscle is commonly used to assess conditions for intubation, we hypothesized that acceleromyography of the trapezius is more indicative of optimal intubating conditions. The primary outcome was the difference between both measurement sites with regard to prediction of good or acceptable intubating conditions. METHODS: Neuromuscular blockade after injection of rocuronium 0...

Upside-down stomach is a relatively rare type of a large paraesophageal hernia characterized by the migration of the stomach into the posterior mediastinum. Upside-down stomach is prone to severe complications and therefore surgery is recommended even in asymptomatic patients. A 62-year-old male presented with frequent abdominal pain with nausea and vomiting that persisted for one year. The patient was obese with fatty liver and was treated medically for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) for 4 years. On upper gastrointestinal CT study a level-IV paraesophageal hernia was detected with upside-down stomach, and he was referred for elective surgery...

BACKGROUND: Despite the availability of objective tests, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) diagnosis and management in infants remains controversial and highly variable. Our purpose was to characterize national variation in diagnostic testing and surgical utilization for infants with GERD. METHODS: Using the Pediatric Health Information System, we identified infants <1 year old diagnosed with GERD between January 2011 and March 2015. Outcomes included progression to antireflux surgery (ARS) and use of relevant diagnostic testing...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic fundoplication is the gold standard treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) refractory to medical management. Although many studies have compared Nissen fundoplication (NF) to Toupet fundoplication (TF), it is unclear which operation provides the best long-term reflux control. The objective of this study was to evaluate long-term quality-of-life (QoL) outcomes after NF versus TF. METHODS: Clinical data from our single academic institutional foregut database were used to identify patients who underwent NF or TF (June 2010 to May 2016)...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the choice of reoperation after failed fundoplication for gastroesophageal reflux disease. Both redo fundoplication and conversion procedure to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) are safe and effective. We aimed to characterize the rates of different revisional procedures and to identify risk factors associated with failed fundoplication. METHODS: Using a statewide database, we examined records for patients who underwent fundoplication between 2000 and 2010...
