Abstract

Laparoscopic antireflux surgery is becoming a standard procedure in pediatric surgery. Anterior gastropexy is often performed in antireflux procedures, as well as in children with recurrent and intermittent volvulus of the stomach. We present a simple and secure technique for anterior laparoscopic-assisted gastropexy.
