Abstract

This article reports patient perceived symptomatic outcome at a median of 23 months after surgery for a consecutive series of 200 patients who underwent a laparoscopic anterior partial fundoplication for gastrooesophageal reflux disease (GORD). Responses to postal questionnaires indicated that far the majority of patients the outcome was good, with 62% reporting minimal CORD symptoms. However, for a significant minority, the outcome was less favourable, and for 10% the outcome was poor, Continuing evaluation of the procedure is needed to establish its place in the management of GORD.
