EndoCinch is a non-surgical endoscopic
treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease. It is done under
general anesthesia, an involves using a special “sewing machine”
placed on the tip of a standard endoscope. Several small stitches
are placed near the junction of the esophagus and stomach.
These stiches or “plications” then tighten the area of the lower
esophageal sphincter, thus reducing reflux into the esophagus.
Although effective, more patients may receive a better result
with Enteryx than with EndoCinch. If you are interested in a
non-surgical treatment for your reflux disease, talk with your
doctor to find out which approach would be right for you.
