Abstract

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a functional disorder that occurs when refluxed gastric contents produce symptoms or tissue damage. Indications for an antireflux procedure in a child are GERD associated with hiatal hernia, failure of medical therapy for GERD, dependence on aggressive or prolonged medical therapy, respiratory symptoms, or high risk to develop GERD after EA repair or following placement of a feeding gastrostomy for nutritional support.
