Abstract

Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is effective for treating gastroesophageal reflux and is usually well tolerated. Some patients, however, experience postoperative dysphagia refractory to conservative measures. We report our experience and operative technique for laparoscopic conversion of previous laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication to partial fundoplication to relieve dysphagia. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 6 patients with refractory dysphagia after laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication who underwent laparoscopic conversion to partial fundoplication using a laparoscopic linear stapler. There were no perioperative deaths and no fundoplication-related complications. In short-term follow-up, all patients reported improvement of dysphagia symptoms.
