Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication with prosthetic hiatal closure reduces postoperative intrathoracic wrap herniation: preliminary results of a prospective randomized functional and clinical study.
BACKGROUND Postoperative intrathoracic wrap migration is the most frequent morphological complication after laparoscopic antireflux surgery. Previous authors have studied the use of prostheticExpand

Endoscopic full-thickness plication versus laparoscopic fundoplication: a prospective study on quality of life and symptom control
BackgroundEndoscopic antireflux techniques have emerged as alternative therapies for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Endoscopic plication receives continuing interest as an effective and safeExpand

Brain-IL-1beta induces local inflammation but systemic anti-inflammatory response through stimulation of both hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and sympathetic nervous system.
It is well established that systemic inflammation induces a counter-regulatory anti-inflammatory response particularly resulting in deactivation of monocytes/macrophages. However, recently weExpand

Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication With Prosthetic Hiatal Closure Reduces Postoperative Intrathoracic Wrap Herniation
Results: Patients in both groups had similar preoperative values in esophageal manometry, 24-hour pH monitoring, and symptom scoring. At the 3-month and 1-year follow-ups, functional outcomeExpand

Influence of the size of the hiatus on the rate of reherniation after laparoscopic fundoplication and refundopilication with mesh hiatoplasty
BackgroundIntrathoracic wrap migration is the most frequent morphological anatomic reason for failure of laparoscopic antireflux surgery (LARS). This study investigates whether the size of theExpand

Effectiveness of Laparoscopic Total and Partial Fundoplication on Extraesophageal Manifestations of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease: A Randomized Study
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the clinical effect of partial and total fundoplication on extraesophageal symptoms in a selected cohort of patients with gastroesophageal reflux diseaseExpand

Influence of the esophageal hiatus size on the lower esophageal sphincter, on reflux activity and on symptomatology.
Hiatal hernia is an underlying factor contributing to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). However, it remains elusive whether the size of the esophageal hiatus has a de facto influence on theExpand

Laparoscopic Nissen versus Toupet fundoplication: objective and subjective results of a prospective randomized trial
BackgroundAlthough symptom outcomes following laparoscopic fundoplication have been adequately evaluated in the past, comparative subjective data of laparoscopic Nissen and Toupet fundoplications areExpand

Similar symptom patterns in gastroesophageal reflux patients with and without hiatal hernia.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a common clinical entity in Western societies. Its association with hiatal hernia has been well documented; however, the comparative clinical profile of patients inExpand
