Abstract

Passing the stomach behind the esophagus during laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is a common source of frustration for the laparoscopic surgeon. It often leads to an incorrect formation of the fundoplication, resulting in a wrapping or twisting of the fundus around the distal esophagus. The correct technique should result in the distal esophagus being enveloped inside the fundus without distorting the orientation of the greater curve. We have developed an easy, precise, and reproducible technique to perform this maneuver. The steps for performance of this maneuver are described.
