Abstract

Antireflux surgery is a well-established treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease, with long-term success rates in the region of 80%-90%. Perhaps some 1% of individuals with troublesome symptoms undergo surgery and of these, a further 1%-5% will have recurrent or persistent symptoms that lead to some form of revisional surgery.
