BACKGROUND:: Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is gold standard treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease. We examined the results of laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication with or without double-sided polypropylene mesh.
PATIENTS AND METHODS:: Sixty patients were prospectively evaluated. Primer cruroraphy and primer cruroraphy with mesh were performed in 31 and 29 patients, respectively. The Gastrointestinal Quality of Life Index (GIQLI) was used for assessment of the patient satisfaction preoperatively and postoperatively at 12 months.
RESULTS:: Sixty patients were included in the study, with a mean age of 42 years. There was no difference between the 2 groups with respect to age, sex, and duration of symptoms. GIQLI showed an equal improvement, and there were no differences in the quality of life in both the groups. All patients' endoscopic findings were normal at first year.
CONCLUSIONS:: Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication appears to prevent reflux and its symptoms and create better quality of life. Double-sided polypropylene mesh for repair may result in better quality of life.
