Summary

Gastroesophageal reflux disease has a high global prevalence, proton pump inhibitors are the cornerstone in the management but 10-20% of the patients are refractory to these, surgical treatment being an option of treatment in these patient but its associated with high morbidity, as well as a greater possibility of early therapeutic failure, for these reasons new therapies are in development being the mucosectomy with band and ablation of the esophagogastric junction with hybrid argon plasma options widely available that can offer a viable therapeutic option for patients with difficult control of symptoms or those who does not want to receive continuous medical treatment or surgical treatment. The aims of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of this new techniques in the management or gastroesophageal reflux disease without hiatal hernia.

Description

Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a disease with high global prevalence, reaching rates of 19.6 and 40% in our country, for which it is one of the most common reasons for medical care and although a clinical response is obtained in an 80-90% of patients with the use of proton pump inhibitors, the rest of the patients represents a medical challenge; surgical and endoscopic treatment being within the treatment options, the former having a high related morbidity (perforation, vagal nerve injury, postoperative dysphagia, etc), its duration is suboptimal and a second operation is associated with more surgical complications and morbidity, as well as a greater possibility of early therapeutic failure. For all these reasons, new endoluminal therapies have begun to be planned, including transoral fundoplication and radiofrequency ablation of the esophagogastric junction, these with controversial results and with the need of the use of special accessories and instruments that are not widely available; mucosectomy with band and ablation of the esophagogastric junction with hybrid argon plasma are widely available procedures in medical centers, offering a viable therapeutic option for patients with difficult control of symptoms or those who does not want to receive continuous medical treatment or surgical treatment.
