Outcomes after minimally invasive reoperation for gastroesophageal reflux disease
Background. Reoperative antireflux surgery is complex and traditionally performed by open methods. Increasingly, surgeons are performing minimally invasive reoperations. This report summarizes our experience with laparoscopic reoperative antireflux surgery (LRAS).
Methods. A retrospective review (1996 to 2001) identified 80 LRAS cases. Median age was 49 (22 to 80) years with 52 females and 28 males. Primary symptoms included heartburn (53%), regurgitation (22%), and dysphagia (25%). Detailed outcomes recorded
Results. LRAS was completed in 97.5% of cases (two conversions). The most common problems identified were mediastinal migration of the wrap in 48 (60%) and misplaced wrap in 11 (13.8%). LRAS operations included
Conclusions. LRAS can be performed safely with complication and success rates similar to open operations in a center with extensive laparoscopic experience.
