Abstract

Background/Purpose: Surgery is indicated for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) when medical treatment fails or complications are encountered in children. However, it has not been fully established how the results after surgery can be evaluated. A prospective study was performed to evaluate the results of surgical therapy for GERD by pH monitoring (PM) and esophageal manometry (EM) in children.
