The article focuses on the therapeutic use of gastroendoscopy and barium meal in treating gastroesophageal reflux disease. In a clinical study, an esophagogastric fistula was found by the double-contrast barium. At endoscopy, he had an almost double-lumen esophagus with the lumen of fistula. The fistulous track was found and resected during the reoperation. It is suggested that fistula on the gastroesophageal junction should be considered in patients with gastroesophageal reflux symptoms.
