PMID:  6359494     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A more astute selection of patients and greater attention to technical details will preclude most complications. The first step is standardizing the technique, with avoidance of unnecessary ancillary maneuvers. Equally important is a thorough preoperative evaluation. With these considerations in mind, the authors believe that Nissen fundoplication is the preferred method of treatment for patients with uncomplicated gastroesophageal reflux refractory to medical therapy.
