    Aim: The way to introduce laparoscopic fundoplication (LF) to a pediatric surgical unit has not been well described. We have taken a measured approach to introducing LF and report our experience in this paper. Methods: All patients undergoing LF from the first case in April 2003 to December 2007...

    Background: To evaluate the outcome of antireflux surgery, we assessed disease-specific symptoms and quality of life of all patients treated by laparoscopic fundoplication at our center between 1992 and 2002. Materials and Methods: Preoperative symptoms and details of surgery were evaluated for...

    Incontinence or hypercontinence of the fundic wrap depends primarily on the length of the valve or the type of procedure. Much less attention has been paid to the fundic wrap length. This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of two different wrap lengths among the patients undergoing partial...

    Background: To bridge the early learning curve for laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication from the clinical setting to a safe environment, training models can be used. This study aimed to develop a reusable, low-cost model to be used for training in laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication procedure as an...

    The article examines the feasibility of day-case laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF). The study focuses mainly on the patients with refractory gastro-esophageal reflux disease. Patients were then asked if they would undergo LNF in a day-case setting. Data suggest that day-case laparoscopic...

  • A New Technique for Preventing Wrap Disruption/Migration After Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication: An Experimental Study. Doi, Takashi; Ichikawa, Satoko; Miyano, Go; Lane, Geoffrey J.; Miyahara, Katsumi; Yamataka, Atsuyuki // Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques;Feb2008, Vol. 18 Issue 1, p179 

    Purpose: Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (LNF) is associated with a wrap disruption/migration rate of 3–40%. At reoperation, there is usually a lack of adhesions between the wrap, esophagus, and crura. In this paper, we report a new technique for the induction of scarring in the fundic...

    Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is an established treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Postoperative improvement in esophageal physiology can be indicative of successful surgery, but the degree to which it correlates with symptom control remains questionable. We have...

  • The use of esophageal transit and gastric emptying studies in the evaluation of patients undergoing laparoscopic fundoplication. Schuchert, Matthew J.; Pettiford, Brian L.; Abbas, Ghulam; Oostdyk, Alicia; Landreneau, James R.; Kilic, Arman; Landreneau, Joshua P.; Luketich, James D.; Landreneau, Rodney J. // Surgical Endoscopy;Dec2010, Vol. 24 Issue 12, p3119 

    Background: Preservation of esophageal and gastric function is a hallmark principle in ensuring optimal surgical outcomes after gastric fundoplication. In this study, we evaluated the impact of fundoplication on esophageal transit and gastric emptying using scintigraphy studies and related these...

    Background: The division of the short gastric vessels (SGVs) is a common practice during laparoscopic floppy Nissen fundoplication (NF) to achieve an adequate mobilization of the gastric fundus. However, the terminal branches of splenic vessels can also be ligated during SGV division, resulting...
