Partial fundoplications have been popularized by their lower risk of mechanical side effects. The question then emerges whether a similar partial wrap should be done posterior or anterior to the distal esophagus? We therefore conducted a study to compare the long-term outcome of laparoscopic partial fundoplications constructed either as anterior (AF) or posterior (PF) repairs. Ninety-five patients were enrolled in a randomized clinical trial. After a mean follow up of 65 months, 43 AF and 45 PF… CONTINUE READING
