Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: EsophyX Procedure: Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication
The TIF procedure using the EsophyX system with SerosaFuse fasteners was designed to create full-thickness serosa-to-serosa plications and construct valves of 3-5 cm in length and 200-300° in circumference.
