Why Do Anti-Reflux Operations Fail in 2018?
The vast majority of patients undergoing minimally invasive anti-reflux operations have successful results. However, some patients experience dissatisfying outcomes even with technically correct procedures. This panel includes the current standards for selecting the right patient and the right procedure for anti-reflux surgery, the principles of technical execution, and the approach for identifying the cause and potential remedies when there are unsatisfactory results.
