BACKGROUND EsophyX is a novel transoral incisionless fundoplication device developed to mimic surgical fundoplication. EsophyX fundoplication improves acid reflux parameters in proton pump inhibitor (PPI)-responsive GERD patients but its efficacy in refractory GERD has been scarcely studied. AIM To assess reflux parameters before and after EsophyX or laparoscopic fundoplication and their relationship with symptoms in refractory GERD. METHODS In an open-label study, we enrolled prospectively… CONTINUE READING
