Özet

Introduction: Chronic reflux of gastric content to the esophagus causes retrosternal burning, pain, and regurgitation, and results in histopathologic changes that may culminate in adenocarcinoma. Insufficiency of the lower esophageal sphincter and hiatal hernia are the two principal causative factors. In this paper, we present the early results of a new antireflux operation in pigs.
