Abstract

BACKGROUND: We reviewed Nissen fundoplications performed in a single practice from January 1989 to March 1997, encompassing our transition from open to laparoscopic procedures. Because all operations were done by two surgeons in the same two hospitals, the study is well controlled for comparisons. METHODS: Records of 271 consecutive patients were reviewed. RESULTS: From 1989 to 1992 all patients underwent open fundoplication (n = 78). Thereafter, with increasing frequency, laparoscopic fundoplication was performed. The laparoscopic group was slightly younger (48 ± 14 years) than the open group (54 ± 13 years), but gender distribution and body mass index (BMI) did not differ. Mean operating time for laparoscopic cases was 163 ± 58 minutes compared with 148 ± 59 minutes for open cases (NS). Intraoperative complication rate was 8% for both groups. Length of hospitalization was shorter for patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery (2.4 days versus 7.2 for open procedures, P
