Abstract

Laparoscopic fundoplication for gastroesophageal reflux disease has been associated with excellent symptom control. Compared with medical treatment, laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication has shown favorable control of typical reflux symptoms. However, in approximately 2% to 17% of patients, surgical treatment fails. The role of reoperative repair for reflux disease and the factors that contribute to it are examined.
