ABSTRACT:
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is primarily a motility disorder. Escape of gastric contents into the esophagus occurs as a consequence of an incompetent gastroesophageal barrier. This barrier is weakened in the presence of an abnormally functioning Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES). This review is focused on the epidemiology, pathophysiology and treatments of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.
KEYWORDS:
Reflux, proton pump inhibitors, H2 receptor antagonists, radiofrequency.
