High Resolution Images: The Hiatal Region after a Fundoplication

The endoscopic images in this site are mostly quite compressed in order to make the transmissions times as short as possible. Sometimes it is however nice to have high resolution images, for example for publications, text books or lectures. In these "high resolution files" some larger images are displayed.

Just click on any image to get a magnification (and then click "Back" on Your browser). Click here to get back to the index page.

Fundoplication is a surgical therapy for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, used if the patient does not like the idea of using medical therapy for a long time or if medical therapy lacks sufficient effect. In a fundoplication the upper part of the stomach is wrapped around a part of or all of the lower oesophagus. There are several techiques, the one best known si the Nissen funcoplicatio introduces by a Swiss Surgeon, Rudolf Nissen, in the 1950Žies. Other techniques are the Belsey plastia, the Toupet fundoplication and the Hill procedure. Fundoplications can now be done laparoscopically.
