Partial or total fundoplication for GERD in the presence of impaired esophageal motility

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

    Abstract

    Laparoscopic antireflux surgery is well established for the surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux, and excellent longer term outcomes have now been reported following both total (Nissen) and partial fundoplication. Even though the most commonly performed operation remains a Nissen fundoplication, some surgeons advocate the routine use of a partial fundoplication, either anterior or posterior, and excellent long term outcomes have also been reported following these procedures.1-3
