Abstract

The original objective of our studies was prospectively to determine the efficacy, durability, and complications of Nissen’s fundoplication (FUN) alone, or combined with lengthening gastroplasty (FUN-GP, Collis-Nissen), in patients with complicated reflux esophagitis failing medical therapy. This brief report emphasizes the incidence, nature, and duration of a particular postoperative complication — esophageal aperistalsis.
