Abstract

Gastroesophageal reflux disease is very common, and there continues to be a need for gastroesophageal reflux surgery despite improved medical therapy. With the relatively new option of laparoscopic antireflux surgery, many more of these procedures are now being performed. In order to perform these well, one must select patients carefully, evaluate them fully, and adhere to the technical principles required to achieve consistently good results.
