Educating health professionals: the Avicenna project.


966 Vol 371 March 22, 2008 I can only hope that Mönkemüller and colleagues’ review off ers an eye-opener to all those involved in the development and assessment of new endoluminal therapies for GORD. Their overview should help to raise the standards of safety and success by which we evaluate these therapies. But most importantly, their systematic review highlights the fact that, up to this point, there is no clear evidence to support the use of any of the endoluminal therapies, however promising the early data may seem, in routine clinical practice.
