The aim of this study is to establish responsiveness of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptom score, quality of life SF-36 score in GERD with relation to oesophageal manometry and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy following laparoscopic Nissen's fundoplication (LNF). Interventional prospective study was done enrolling 77 patients of GERD who respond to proton pump inhibitor (PPI) and have undergone LNF, strict diagnostic criteria were followed with GERD score, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, oesophageal manometry, and endoscopically negative patients have further undergone 24-h pH study. Follow-up was done at 12 and 24 months by GERD score, SF-36 score, endoscopy, oesophageal manometry. GERD score shows significant difference in pre-operative and post-operative score with P value <0.001 except dysphagia. Post-LNF improvement in GERD score is consistent with improvement in lower oesophageal sphincter (LES) pressure at 12 months. All dimensions in quality of life SF-36 show significant difference in pre-operative and post-operative score at 12 months with P value <0.001. Results are consistent at 24 months. Oesophagitis was decreased from 40.2 to 11.6 % as well as it showed down grading on endoscopy in post-operative period. Out of three patients of complete disruption of wrap, two patients underwent redo surgery and showed improvement. In properly diagnosed PPI respondent patients by GERD score, LNF has got improvement in GERD score, quality of life in all dimensions of SF-36 score in relation to improvement with LES pressure and oesophagitis.
