Esophagogastric dissociation

Esophagogastric dissociation

Esophagogastric dissociation is a surgical procedure that is sometimes used to treat gastroesophageal reflux, mainly in neurologically impaired children.[1] It has been suggested as an alternative to Nissen fundoplication for these cases.[2][3] Preliminary studies have shown it may have a lower failure rate[4] and a lower incidence of recurrent reflux.[3]
