Laparoscopic antireflux surgery for supraesophageal complications of gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease can result in such supraesophageal complications as hoarseness, sore throat, cough, bronchitis, asthma, recurrent pneumonia, intermittent choking, chest pain, and ear pain. Appropriate patient care involves careful evaluation to decide on medical or surgical therapy. Preoperative testing must include endoscopy, 24-hour esophageal pH monitoring, and esophageal manometry. Additional evaluations, such as barium swallow, chest x-ray, bronchoscopy, and sinus radiographs, may be required. Medical treatment improves gastroesophageal reflux and supraesophageal symptoms. However, surgical therapy seems to provide better long-term results. A profile that predicts the best response to medical therapy has not been identified, although the best results with surgery are achieved in patients with nocturnal asthma, onset of reflux before pulmonary symptoms, laryngeal inflammation, and a good response to medical treatment.[1]
