Abstract

GERD is a highly prevalent disease in our country. It has a deep impact in patient’s quality of life, representing extremely high costs regarding health. The correct understanding of its pathophysiology is crucial for the rational use of diagnoses methods and the implementation of appropriate treatment adjusted to each individual case. In this review we evaluate this disorder based on the best available evidence, focusing in pathophysiological mechanisms, its epidemiology, modern diagnosis methods and current management standards.
