Comparative Effectiveness of Management Strategies for Adults With Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease: An Update

Slide: 18 of 26

Findings of the Comparative Effectiveness Review: Surgery (1 of 3)

Surgery (fundoplication) is a potential treatment option for patients with GERD. Fundoplication may reduce the need for long-term use of medication. Variations on the surgical approach include laparoscopic total versus partial fundoplication, laparoscopic fundoplication with and without division of short gastric vessels, and open total versus partial fundoplication. Evidence of moderate strength indicates that these various approaches showed no significant differences in effectiveness.
