Abstract
This book is intended for surgeons wanting to take their antireflux practice to an advanced level. It focuses on what experts do in real life, highlights pitfalls in skillful patient selection and fundoplication surgical technique, and addresses how to handle the "curve balls". It also provides recommendations on obtaining high patient satisfaction and building relationships with referring physicians. It is intended as an "expert" level manual to help readers move to the next level in their practices. From patient assessment and selection, anticipation of perioperative challenges, intraoperative problem-solving and technique, and postoperative management of side-effects, to reducing long-term recurrence rates and resumption of antisecretory medication, these expert authors dig deep to share the pearls of wisdom that make the difference between the average surgeon and the expert. Written by experts in the field, Fundoplication Surgery: A Clinical Guide to Optimizing Results confronts the issues that have hindered the broader use of fundoplication nationally and is a valuable resource and reference guide for addressing ambiguous symptoms and test results in one's practice.

Abstract
This text comprehensively reviews the current state of the art in Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) together with a comprehensive explanation and description of the known gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) literature. With chapters written by experts from around the world, this text aims to deliver what is current in reflux recognition, diagnosis, reflux related complications, and the various treatment modalities. This is the first textbook to combine the most up to date knowledge of both LPR and GERD meant for both specialties and the general medicine population. Completely unique to the reflux literature is a section detailing the substantial benefits of a mostly plant based, Mediterranean style diet in the treatment of reflux disease. Encouraging patients to read and learn about diet and health is likely the most important step in improving their disease. The text provides direction to the caregiver on how to transition to a mostly plant-based diet. Review of myths, effects of diet in the setting of other disease states, and dietary consequences are explained. Guidelines on how to transition diet, dining out while maintaining a plant-based diet, and how to wean off medication, such as PPI, are also provided. Laryngopharyngeal and Gastroesophageal Reflux: A Comprehensive Guide to Diagnosis Treatment, and Diet-Based Approaches will provide the medical community with a resource to understand, teach, and provide the latest in LPR and GERD information to the caregiver and subsequently the patient. .

Abstract
This book provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art overview on the established knowledge in the field of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) as well as a current insight into new algorithms involving new diagnostic tools and new endoscopic and surgical techniques. The integration of these new findings in updated therapeutic decision making is demonstrated. The book reviews the latest literature on new diagnostic findings to better discriminate between different benign disorders of the esophagus and stomach. It describes the decision making to establish indications for the variety of established and new therapeutic options in the management of the disease. It also describes in detail new therapeutic techniques, which provides excellent back-up information for every clinician in daily practice. Management of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease is a valuable resource for clinicians, surgeons, nurses, technicians, students and researchers with an interest in esophageal and upper GI disease.

Abstract
This book presents a new, multi- and interdisciplinary approach to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and Barrett’s esophagus that reflects the latest advances in understanding of the disease. The role of each of the available diagnostic techniques, including endoscopy, histopathology, esophageal manometry, reflux monitoring, and EndoFLIP assessment, is carefully explained. The use of endoscopy for the purposes of mucosal ablation (radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation) and mucosal resection is described, and all aspects of anti-reflux surgery are covered, with detailed explanation of indications and techniques for standard fundoplication, endoscopic fundoplication, and surgical procedures using the LINX system and the EndoStim device. To assist the reader further, a novel interdisciplinary algorithm is presented for GERD diagnosis and treatment. In addition, the latest diagnostic and therapeutic approaches (including endoscopic and surgical resection and chemoradiation) are also presented for esophageal cancer and cancer palliation. A key feature of the book is its recognition of the contribution of different specialties in the management of GERD, and it will accordingly appeal to a wide range of practitioners.

When you eat, food travels from your mouth to your stomach through a long tube called the esophagus. A muscle called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) joins the esophagus and the stomach. This muscle opens when you swallow to let food and liquids pass into your stomach and stays closed when you are not eating or drinking. If you have GERD, this muscle opens at times when it should be closed, letting small amounts of food and acid from your stomach move back up into your esophagus. This is ca…

Abstract
When you eat, food travels from your mouth to your stomach through a long tube called the esophagus. A muscle called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) joins the esophagus and the stomach. This muscle opens when you swallow to let food and liquids pass into your stomach and stays closed when you are not eating or drinking. If you have GERD, this muscle opens at times when it should be closed, letting small amounts of food and acid from your stomach move back up into your esophagus. This is called reflux. This pamphlet explains the symptoms of GERD, what you can do to help or prevent GERD, what foods can trigger reflux or make it worse, how your primary health care provider can help, and why it is important to control your symptoms. Information on planning meals is included.

GERD is the most common gastrointestinal disease in the world affecting over 10-20% of the adult population. GERD is often perceived asáa Western disease and very little literature available about this disease in the Asian population. With growing obesity and westernization in Asia, the prevalence of GERD is rapidly increasing.

Abstract
GERD is the most common gastrointestinal disease in the world affecting over 10-20% of the adult population. GERD is often perceived asáa Western disease and very little literature available about this disease in the Asian population. With growing obesity and westernization in Asia, the prevalence of GERD is rapidly increasing. With growing morbidity and health care cost there is a significant need for understanding the disease from the Asian perspective. This book would fill the gap in the knowledge on GERD among Asians and will highlight the difference in terms of epidemiology, diagnosis and management of GERD from the Western perspective. The novel imaging, diagnostic modalities and treatment aspects will be essentially highlighted in this book. It also deals about the pathogenesis and risk factors of Asians for the development of GERD which have not been explored before. Another important difference is that the book would be dealing with symptom perception and cultural factors affecting the diagnosis and management of this common disorder. Finally, the surgical outcomes of GERD among Asians will be discussed. Information on these topics is limited.
