This is a prospective trial of the utility of esophageal stitches during fundoplication.
The hypothesis is that recurrence rate may be different with or without the esophageal stitches.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Reflux||Procedure: esophageal stitches during fundoplication Procedure: no esophageal stitches placed during fundoplication|
This will be a single center, prospective randomized clinical trial involving patients who require an operation for gastroesophageal reflux disease. This is intended to be a definitive study. All patients will receive the standard operation for reflux: laparoscopic fundoplication. The dissection will be performed by leaving the phrenoesophageal membrane intact in all patients.
One group will undergo laparoscopic fundoplication with 4 esophageal-crural sutures while the other group will not have these placed. The operation, post-operative care, and follow-up plan will otherwise not differ between groups.
