Abstract

BACKGROUND: We analyzed the very long-term results of the Nissen-Rossetti fundoplication performed in young children. Little has been reported about followup longer than 5 years in homogeneous populations, This study concerns a homogeneous group with a minimum follow-up of 10 years; these former patients, therefore, are now adolescents or adults. STUDY DESIGN: In 24 consecutive patients without other congenital or acquired anomalies of the esophagus or stomach, we evaluated the primary postoperative diagnoses, symptoms of recurrent reflux, and their state of health in 1994. RESULTS: After a median follow-up of 16 years, the result was excellent in 18 patients, good in 5, and poor in 1 (graded according to Visick). Patients with recurring reflux symptoms had evidence of failure of the fundoplication. All but 1 had been given a diagnosis of recurrent reflux within 2 years after the operation. The situation after 2 years seems predictive for the later outcome.CONCLUSIONS: In almost all cases, the Nissen-Rossetti fundoplication is a long-lasting, effective treatment for young children with symptomatic gastroesophageal reflux.
