HAZBON, Héctor René  and  JUNCA-BURGOS, Edgar Germçan. Management of gastroesophageal reflux at Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá. rev. colomb. cir. [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.3, pp.196-206. ISSN 2011-7582.

In our environment gastroesophageal reflux disease remains a problem that is managed medically, while surgical intervention is not fostered, especially by gastroenterologists. Patients are generally offered medical treatment, and the entity becomes chronic, while one could avoid the permanent prescription of medications with surgical intervention. This review is intended to indicate the manner for an early detection of patients with gastroesophageal reflux that can be benefitted from surgical correction.

Keywords : gastroesophageal Reflux; esophagitis; esophageal pH monitoring; fundoplication; laparoscopy.
