Partial posterior wrap (toupet)in patients with defective esophageal body motility
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
<b>Background: </b> The effectiveness of partial posterior wrap (Toupet procedure) in patients with defective esophageal body motility is controversial. <b> Aim of the study: </b> To evaluate the effect of Toupet procedure upon the outcome of laparoscopic (LF) and open (OF) fundoplications in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) patients with defective esophageal body motility. <b> Patients and Methods: </b> This study included 32 patients with severe GERD who underwent Toupet procedure; 18 (56.25&#x0025;) OF &#x2032;and 14 (43.75&#x0025;) LF. Outcome measures included assessment of relief of the symptoms, results of repeated endoscopy, barium study, manometry and pH metry; both early (within six months) and late (two years at least). <b> Results: </b> Relief of heartburn was achieved in 26 patients (81.3&#x0025;). These include 14 (77.7&#x0025;) and 12 (85.7&#x0025;) patients who underwent OF and LF respectively. Occasional dysphagia developed in six patients (18.7&#x0025;) early, and three (9.4&#x0025;) late; all were managed conservatively. Endoscopic esophagitis healed in 26 patients (81.3&#x0025;); 14 (77.7&#x0025;) OF and 12 (85.7&#x0025;) LF. Mean LES and body pressures improved (10.5 to 17.7 and 29.0 to 41.0 mmHg respectively). Persistent acid reflux was detected in six patients (18.7&#x0025;); two (22.3&#x0025;) OF and two (14.3&#x0025;) LF. <b> Conclusion: </b> Toupet fundoplication is an effective procedure for reflux control except in patients with severe GERD
