Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Dumping syndrome and postprandial hypoglycemia have been reported after Nissen fundoplication. The physiopathologic mechanisms are poorly understood and a variety of therapies have failed to control the hypoglycemia in these patients. We report a series of 6 infants with postprandial hypoglycemia after Nissen fundoplication who were treated successfully with acarbose.
