Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) Versus Sham for Treatment of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
A Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) Using EsophyX With Sham Procedure for the Treatment of PPI Dependent GERD: the TIF vs. Sham Study

The study objective is to evaluate the relative merits, safety and effectiveness of transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) in proton pump inhibitor (PPI) dependent GERD patients compared with sham procedure.

Primary Effectiveness Endpoint: The proportion of patients in clinical remission after 6 months (without being classified as treatment failure).

Secondary Effectiveness: PPI consumption, esophageal acid exposure, reduction in QOLRAD and GSRS scores and healing of reflux esophagitis.

Phase 4
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
  • Hiatal Hernia
Procedure: Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF)
The TIF procedure results in the creation of an esophago-gastric fundoplication extending up to 4 cm above the Z-line and 270 degress around the esophagus.
  • Active Comparator: TIF procedure
    Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF)
    Intervention: Procedure: Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF)
  • Sham Comparator: Sham procedure
    Sham procedure consisting of upper GI endoscopy
