Twenty Years of Laparoscopic Fundoplication for GERD

  • Bernard Dallemagne
  • Silvana Perretta
Article

Abstract

The first laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication was performed 20 years ago. Surgical management of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) should be offered only to appropriately studied and selected patients, with the ultimate aim of improving the well-being of the individual, the “quality of life.” The choice of fundoplication should be dictated by the surgeon’s preference and experience.
