Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA)

Introducing Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to treat gastroesophageal reflux diseases (GERD)

When is Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) considered for the treatment GERD?

What endoscopic therapies are available for the treatment of GERD?

There are 2 types of endoscopic therapies that are currently being utilized:

  • The Stretta (Mederi Therapeutics) devices
  • The Eso-phyX (EndoGastric Solutions) devices.

These devices have been improved in recent 10 to 15 years. It is difficult to compare success rate or side effects of these devices because there are not enough clinical trials to compare these methods with PPIs or Nissen fundoplication. Many people think they have GERD but in fact they may suffer from an overlap syndrome or a practical bowel difficulty. Thus, the patient with these symptoms must avoid RFA ablation. People who have variations in their anatomy ought to be avoided because Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to treat gastroesophageal reflux diseases (GERD) will not improve reflux in the background of a hiatus hernia. On the other hand, Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is useful for some specific reason.

What are the challenges associated with treating GERD via an RFA?

The test of GERD is aimed to suggest the best treatment method for the patient. Beyond looking at the pathophysiology of the patient’s problem and determining the role of acid reflux, the clinician needs to consider the expectations of the patient and how he or she wants to be treated. That is an important factor that should be noticed. Certain patients can be quite calm with being on a PPI for their whole lives, while others disagree to take medicine for the whole lives. On the other hand, some of them do not accept to experience surgery. When patients are at this situation, endoscopic therapy might be a good approach.
