Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of posterior hemifundoplication (the Toupet procedure) in the management of gastroesophageal reflux (GER) [2]. Several authors have stated that the effects of this procedure do not last, but a pH study at 5 years has never been systematically performed. This preliminary study which was carried out at 12 months postsurgically and which is to be repeated at 5 years was carried out to gain insight into this problem.
