Abstract

Collis gastroplasty with fundoplication is an accepted treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) complicated by short esophagus. The procedure can be done either via left thoracotomy or using minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques. Few centers have reported long-term follow-up for patients undergoing a Collis gastroplasty using both the open and minimal access techniques. Retrospective review of prospectively collected data at Creighton University was done to identify patients who underwent Collis gastroplasty with fundoplication for GERD. After approval from the institutional review board, the patients were contacted and administered a questionnaire regarding symptoms and satisfaction. Data were entered in a dataset and analyzed from the patient's perspective. Eighty-five patients underwent a Collis gastroplasty procedure over a period of 13 years. Forty-eight percent (41 cases) were performed laparoscopically, and a transthoracic open repair was performed in the rest. Long-term data (more than 9 months) was available on 52 patients. Surgery resulted in complete resolution of heartburn, chest pain, regurgitation, and dysphagia in 52, 22, 54, and 29% of patients, respectively. More than 75% of the patients were satisfied with the outcome of surgery, and more than 85% would recommend the procedure to another patient. Collis gastroplasty with fundoplication results in good long-term patient satisfaction and symptom control.
