BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the results obtained in 14 patients with achalasia who underwent laparoscopic Heller's myotomy and Dor's fundoplication with those of 16 patients who had endoscopic dilation. METHODS The diagnosis of achalasia was confirmed by manometry, endoscopy, and barium swallow. Esophageal symptoms were quantified before and after treatment using a clinical scale. Six patients had had endoscopic dilation prior to surgery. RESULTS Before treatment, the… Expand
