412. INTRAOPERATIVE APPLICATION OF ENDOFLIP FOR THE REPAIR OF HIATUS HERNIA AND FUNDOPLICATIONDaniel Tong

There is no objective measurement during repair of hiatus hernia and fundoplication intraoperatively. Whether the patient needs Nissen, Toupet or other fundoplication requires individual consideration. If the wrap repaired too tight, patient will develop dysphagia after surgery. If the wrap fold too loose, then the patient may experinced persistent reflux symptoms. This video demonstrate the application of EndoFlip intraoperatively to objectively measure the distensibility of the lower esophageal sphincter.
Patient underwent laparoscopic hiatus hernia and fundoplication after symptoms assessment and confirmation of diagnosis. Intraoperatively, EndFlip probe was inserted and distensibility were measured as pre-dissection, post abdominal resection, post crural repair and after fundoplication. Tightness of fundoplication is adjusted aming at distenisbiliary index ranged 2–4.
This study demonstrate the intraoperative aspproach for using EndoFlip as the tool to adjust the appropriate tightness on creating the wrap. Fpr this particular patient, before crus dissection, the distensibility index (DI) was 4.5, after crural dissection, DI was 5.5. After crural repair and Toupet fundoplication, the DI was 2.5. Post-operatively, patient had all the proton pump inhibitor stopped and enjoying good quality of life.
Objective intraoperative measurement during fundoplication is now available. Appropriate tightness of the wrap can be adjusted to avoidf post operative dysphagia or persistent reflus.
