What is Reflux?

Gastoesophageal reflux disease is a disease that affects almost 25% of the population. It often manifests itself with complaints such as burning in the throat and chest, and bitter water in the mouth. The main disorder that causes the disease is the escape of stomach acid into the esophagus with the relaxation of the structure (sphincter), which is made up of tight muscles between the esophagus and the stomach. It is a chronic disease. The use of acid-suppressing drugs usually provides relief. However, in many patients, the symptoms start again after discontinuation of drug therapy.

Why Endoscopic Fundoplication?

The permanent treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease is to narrow and strengthen the loose sphincter and make it functional. With this method, the sphincter is strengthened by suturing endoscopically. No incisions are made on the skin. By entering through the mouth with a special endoscope, the intact stomach tissue is sutured to the loose area at the lower end of the esophagus with a suture material, which we can call a medical stapler. Thus, acid leakage problem is prevented.
