Sep 22, 2018 · Linx After Fundoplication? in Digestive Health

Thanks for the welcome message and for the link to the previous discussion, which didn’t show up in my search.

I had a very large hiatal hernia — my stomach was in my chest and collapsed a lung, and the laparoscopic repair and fundoplication took 6.5 hours. Given that, I’m thinking that the Linx device is not possible, but I figure I’ll confirm.

Btw my GI doc retired and I haven’t connected with a replacement yet, so I’m asking here.

Sep 22, 2018 · Linx After Fundoplication? in Digestive Health

I had a fundoplication over a decade ago and have been on Dexilant to avoid reflux, but I get occasional reflux incidences. I had manometry done 3 years ago after I complained of the reflux, and I was told that the wrap had loosened but was not appropriate

I just learned about the Linx device, which appears to be more efficient than fundoplication. Can the Linx be used in a patient with a fundoplication? If so, are there any special considerations?

Thanks in advance for any information.
