Abstract

We greatly appreciate Dr Grigg's interest in our study, as documented in his letter.1 Dr Grigg provides an intriguing historical account of some of the early pioneers of surgery for gastro‐oesophageal reflux, including his personal experience of tutelage from Norman Barrett and Philip Allison. While the transthoracic approaches of Barrett and Allison had a strong anatomical basis,2 these procedures have now been superseded by modern laparoscopic anti‐reflux procedures.3
