BRAGHETTO M., Italo. Clinical consequences post tubular vertical gastrectomy: gastroesophageal reflux disease. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2018, vol.70, n.6, pp.598-603. ISSN 0718-4026.

Several publications report an increase in the rate of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) after surgery, although there is still no consensus on this. The aim of this article is to show our own experience and literature regarding the clinical aspects of GERD disease after tubular vertical gastrectomy. From the analysis of our results and data from the literature, studies evaluating the prevalence of postoperative gastro-oesophageal reflux disease show that GVT can cause symptoms of de novo GERD or worsening of pre-existing GERD.

Keywords : tubular vertical gastrectomy; gastroesophageal reflux disease; sequels.
