Brief Summary:
This single-blind randomized control study will follow 142 subjects across 7 sites randomized on a 1:1 ratio to compare treatment efficacy and safety between TIF and LNF in GERD patients with hiatal hernia undergoing hernia repair.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
GERD Hiatal Hernia Procedure: LAPAROSCOPIC PARAESOPHAGEAL HIATAL HERNIA REPAIR COMBINED WITH TRANSORAL INCISIONLESS FUNDOPLICATION Not Applicable

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 142 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Masking Description: Measures will be taken to minimize or avoid bias in the study "masking/blinding procedures." Neither treatment groups will be advised as to which procedure (TIF or LNF) they will be receiving. Randomization assignment will be recorded in the EDC and subject tracking, but will not be recorded within the EMR to reduce clinical team exposure to their randomized status for follow-up care. Research teams will not be blinded to the randomization results.
Primary Purpose: Other
Official Title: Multicenter Single-Blind RCT of CTIF Versus LNF For Treatment of GERD in Patients Requiring Hiatal Hernia Repair Combined With Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication Versus Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication for Treatment of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease in Patients Requiring Hiatal Hernia Repair
Actual Study Start Date : January 26, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2025

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean difference in HRQL score ≤ 15% [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Hypothesis: TIF is non-inferior to LNF as measured by quality of life at 6 months post-procedure using the Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease-Health-Related Quality of Life (GERD-HRQL) score.

    GERD-HRQL Scoring Total Score: Calculated by summing the individual scores to questions 1-15.

    • Greatest possible score (worst symptoms) = 75
    • Lowest possible score (no symptoms) = 0

    Heartburn Score: Calculated by summing the individual scores to questions 1-6 .

    • Worst heartburn symptoms = 30
    • No heartburn symptoms = 0
    • Scores of ≤ 12 with each individual question not exceeding 2 indicate heartburn elimination.

    Regurgitation Score: Calculated by summing the individual scores to questions 10-15.

    • Worst regurgitation symptoms = 30
    • No regurgitation symptoms = 0
    • Scores of ≤ 12 with each individual question not exceeding 2 indicate regurgitation elimination.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in AET [ Time Frame: [Time Frame: 6 months] ]

  3. Incidence of dysphagia [ Time Frame: [Time Frame: 6 months] ]

  4. Change in distensibility index of GE junction [ Time Frame: [Time Frame: 6 months] ]
    Endoflip (optional) Case Report Form

  5. Cessation of Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) use [ Time Frame: [Time Frame: 6 months] ]
    PPI Use Questionnaire Case Report Form

  6. Healing of esophagitis [ Time Frame: [Time Frame: 6 months] ]
