Legner A, Altorjay A, Juhasz A, Stadlhuber R, Reich V, Hunt B, Rothstein R, Filipi C - Surg Innov (2014)

Bottom Line: An outpatient transoral endoscopic procedure for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and obesity would be appealing if safe, effective, and durable.The subsequent 5 subjects had a successfully completed procedure.The initial human clinical experience showed promising results for effective and safe GERD and obesity therapy.

fig8-1553350613508228: Patient 8’s 12-month follow-up endoscopy using a 6-mm endoscope.

Mentions: Patient #8 (GERD) had a complete procedure and made an uneventful recovery. At 12-month follow-up she remains asymptomatic and off all antisecretory medications. Her preoperative HRQOL was 19 and the DeMeester score was 44, compared with 24-month results, which were 6 and 8.9, respectively. Her 12-month endoscopy with a 6 mm endoscope and full insufflation is shown in figure 8. No esophagitis was evident.
