Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease ( GERD) is the most prevalent esophageal disease. It is a condition affecting up to 20% of the Western world and has a significant negative impact in the patient’s quality of life. The typical symptoms are heartburn and regurgitation, but  other clinical presentations can be present.

Information on indications for esophageal testing and clinical diagnosis of GERD can be found in the Modern diagnosis of GERD: the Lyon Consensus.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) Roundtable Discussion

Watch Peter Siersema lead a roundtable discussion on gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) during the ISDE 2016 Congress in Singapore. The discussion centered around the following areas:

  1. Diagnostic work-up
  2. Treatment: surgical and endoscopic
  3. Long-term results

Moderator: Peter Siersema

Panelists: Luigi Bonavina (Endoscopic / laproscopic antireflux procedures), Magnus Nilsson (Surgery), Karl Hermann Fuchs (Patients not responding to surgery), Giovanni Zaninotto (Hiatal Hernia), Kenneth Wang (PPI), Lars Lundell (patients, clinical practice, etc.), Monther Bajbouji (Diagnostics)
