Abstract

This paper presents commentaries on how endoluminal antireflux procedures compare to laparoscopic fundoplication; new endoscopic procedures being studied to treat refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD); the new Stretta; the relationship between obesity and proton pump inhibitor (PPI) resistance; data concerning acid hypersensitivity and sensory receptors (vallinoid, TRPV1) causing refractory GERD; whether microscopic esophagitis is relevant in determining symptoms of non-erosive reflux disease (NERD); how concomitant functional gastrointestinal disorders affect the PPI response in NERD; the evidence that a functional esophagus is associated with inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS); the role of GABA agonists in the treatment of refractory GERD; the role of biofeedback and antidepressants in refractory GERD; and endoluminal fundoplication using the EsophyX device.
