Abstract

A subset of patients does not report improvement of symptoms or satisfaction after antireflux surgery. The aim of this study is to assess the effect of pre-existing depression as a factor in patient satisfaction and gastrointestinal quality of life index (GIQLI) outcomes after antireflux surgery. Patients undergoing antireflux surgery who had filled a preoperative quality of life score and had more than 1 year follow-up were included in this study. Based on available history and self-reported medication use, patients were divided in two groups: with depression (group A) and without depression (group B). Fifty-four patients with completed preoperative GIQLI questionnaire were contacted for this study; 32 (59%) patients completed the postoperative questionnaire. Seven patients (22%) had psychological disorder (group A) in the form of depression The GIQLI in groups A and B increased significantly from 64.4 ± 17.3 and 89.6 ± 18.6 to 88.6 ± 23.7 (P <0.001) and 102.2 ± 18.6 (P = 0.02), respectively, after the surgery. There was significant improvement in the quality of life in patients after antireflux surgery based on the GIQLI assessment. This improvement was also reported in patients with history of depression.
