The aim of this trial was to characterise the intra and post operative metabolic, endocrine and inflammatory response to laparoscopic fundoplication in children. We are testing the hypothesis that laparoscopic fundoplication is associated with a lack of hypermetabolism and catabolism and blunting of the endocrine/inflammatory stress response
