Abstract

Gastro-esophageal reflux disease is the most frequent disorder of the oesophagus; endoscopic minimally invasive treatment is desirable. Various studies were conducted in patients with reflux disease injecting ethylene-vinyl-alcohol into the muscle of the gastric cardia. Ethylene-vinyl-alcohol implantation into the cardia resulted in circular diffusion of the product in many cases. Lower oesophageal sphincter pressure was increased at 1 month and was sustained at a median follow-up of 6 months. Only a minority of patients had to resume therapy with a proton pump inhibitor. Ethylene-vinyl-alcohol implantation in the muscle of cardia is feasible and safe.
