Abstract

Despite the numerous techniques put forward, it is still difficult to obtain more than 85% of good results after the surgical treatment of peptic esophagitis due to gastroesophageal reflux [19, 1]. The failures of treatment are associated with technical imperfections responsible for recurrence or with residual hyperacidity.
