Abstract

Treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease with medication and antireflux maneuvers recently has seen dramatic improvement. Unfortunately, a significant number of patients still do not achieve satisfactory relief and must undergo a surgical procedure. Conventional antireflux surgery has inherent morbidity, as it requires a large abdominal or thoracic incision. This article explores the newer endoluminal and laparoscopic techniques for treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease.
