Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is one of the most common maladies of mankind. Approximately 40% of the adult population of the USA suffers from significant heartburn and the numerous antacids advertised incessantly on national television represents a $8 billion per year drug market. The ability to control acid secretion with the increasingly effective acid-suppressive agents such as the H2 blockers (pepcid, zantac) and proton pump inhibitors (nexium, prevacid) has given physicians an excellent method of treating the symptoms of acid reflux. Unfortunately, this has not eradicated reflux disease. It has just changed its nature. While heartburn, ulceration and strictures have become rare, reflux-induced adenocarcinoma of the esophagus is becoming increasingly common. Adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and gastric cardia is now the most rapidly increasing cancer type in the Western world. The increasing incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma has created an enormous interest and stimulus for research in this area. GERD brings together a vast amount of disparate literature and presents the entire pathogenesis of reflux disease in one place. In addition to providing a new concept of how gastroesophageal reflux causes cellular changes in the esophagus, GERD also offers a complete solution to a problem that has confused physicians for over a century. Both clinical and pathological information about reflux disease and its treatment are presented. GERD is meant to be used as a comprehensive reference for gastroenterologists, esophageal surgeons, and pathologists alike. Outlines how gastroesophageal reflux causes cellular changes in the esophagus Brings together the pathogenesis of the disease in one source and applies it toward clinical treatment Tom DeMeester is THE leading international expert on reflux disease; Parakrama Chandrasoma is one of the leading pathologists in the area Book contains approximately 350 illustrations Ancillary web site features color illustrations: www.chandrasoma.com

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is one of the most common disorders with an increasing prevalence and incidence in the last two decades. This book, edited by two experienced surgeons and a clinical psychologist in cooperation with numerous worldwide leading experts, presents clinically relevant information for gastroenterologists, internists, surgeons, residents and also nurses, who frequently care for GERD patients. Focusing on different treatment concepts – medical, endoscopic as well as surgical – the chapters include the basics of symptomatology and epidemiology, pathophysiology, GERD among different age groups, complications and its treatment, hiatal hernia or H. pylori and GERD, NERD and functional heartburn, diagnostic procedures and also presurgical examination. In addition, the patient's perspectives of disease, diagnostics and treatment are included, the same as economic aspects of GERD, and the impact of disease on quality of life or patient-reported outcomes after treatment.

This volume provides a detailed and comprehensive review of current knowledge concerning all aspects of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The opening chapters on its pathogenesis and epidemiology include discussions of Helicobacter pylori as an etiological agent, and Barrett's esophagus. The bulk of the volume is taken up with critical reviews of all the contemporary approaches to GERD - both medical and surgical (open and laparoscopic) - and presents the early results from laparoscopic trials throughout the world. The book concludes with detailed descriptions from expert practitioners of the various alternative laparoscopic fundoplication techniques. This timely publication will be of interest not only to gastroenterologists and gastrointestinal surgeons, but to all doctors and general practitioners who must advise and prescribe treatment for patients with this common, distressing, but remediable complaint.

GERD: A New Understanding of Pathology, Pathophysiology, and Treatment transforms the assessment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) from its present state, which is largely dependent on clinical definition and management, to a more objective scientific basis that depends on pathologic assessment. Sequential chapters in this single-author book describe the fetal development of the esophagus, the normal adult state, and the way exposure to gastric juice causes epithelial and lower esophageal sphincter damage at a cellular level. It allows recognition of the pathologic manifestations of lower esophageal sphincter damage and develops new histopathologic criteria for quantitating such damage. This understanding provides new pathologic criteria for definition and diagnosis of GERD from its earliest cellular stage. Algorithms based on measurement of sphincter damage can identify, even before the onset of clinical GERD, persons who will never develop GERD during life, those who develop GERD but remain with mild and easily controlled disease, and those who will progress to severe GERD with failure to control symptoms, Barrett esophagus and adenocarcinoma. Aggressive early intervention in the last group with the objective of preventing disease progression to its end points of uncontrolled symptoms and adenocarcinoma becomes feasible. Provides a new method of assessment of GERD that has never previously been presented, creating a pathway to control Describes a new pathologic test based on standard histology that can define lower esophageal sphincter damage Sequential chapters outline the way GERD progresses from the perspective of the amount of damage to the lower esophageal sphincter Provides new avenues of clinical research and technologic innovations in pathology and treatment aimed at preventing esophageal adenocarcinoma
