Q – Tips: Reflux and laparoscopic surgery

  • Speaking of reflux, the New England Journal of Medicine just published a research project on people with “refractory” heart burn. The patients studied were people with severe reflux that weren’t adequately controlled using PPI’s.   One group was given a second medicine: Baclofen, a muscle relaxer, the other group had laparoscopic surgery called fundoplication.  The surgical group had a much better resolution of their symptoms.
