Abstract:PURPOSE: Evaluate short results after fundoplication procedure, concerning the division of short gastric vessels.

They were divided into two groups: no SGV division (group A, n= 46) and with SGV division (Group B, n=44), although in both groups the gastric fundus was mobilized to perform a floppy valve. Early outcome with clinical follow up (1 year) was observed. … Show more
