Abstract

Today it is a well-known fact that reflux esophagitis with its serious complications of peptic stenosis (Savary and Miller 1976; Shmerling 1976; Wienbeck et al. 1976) and possibly Barrett’s ulcer (Barrett 1951; Wurnig 1963) (Tables 1 and 2) often occurs in hiatus hernia in infants and children. This knowledge is supported and extended mainly by the results of pH monitoring and esophageal manometry (Wienbeck et al. 1976). In some cases purely conservative treatment is sufficient (Carre 1954; Prinsen 1975); in others the peptic stenosis is treated by fundoplication and dilatation and possibly a myotomy, as well. Extreme cases could require a resection with colonic interposition.
