In this live interactive surgery video, Dr. Silvana Perretta presents the clinical case of a patient with GERD. Dr. Bernard Dallemagne demonstrates the main principles of a Nissen fundoplication for GERD, covering all aspects of the surgical procedure including key steps. The Endolumenal Functional Lumen Imaging Probe Imaging System (EndoFLIP) is used for intelligent monitoring of anatomical structures. The fundoplication and valve construction are better visualized by means of intraoperative endoscopy.
