Abstract

Background: The long-term results of endoluminal gastroplication (ELGP) for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are still under investigation. Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF) has unquestionable results in the treatment of GERD and, therefore, it would be unfortunate to compromise this treatment option by performing alternative therapies such as ELGP. Methods: Six patients underwent ELGP for the treatment of GERD symptoms. After symptoms returned, these patients elected to have a LNF. Results: There was no sign of periesophagitis or intraperitoneal adhesion formation found at hiatal dissection that hindered or complicated the LNF procedure. Recent follow-up has shown that the patient's GERD symptom scores have decreased, as expected after a de novo LNF. Conclusion: ELGP does not alter the surgical dissection or results of a subsequent LNF.
