ABSTRACT Background: The patients with hipocontractil esophagus and gastroesophageal reflux disease have a more probabilities to present dysphagia after a total fundoplication. Objective: To prove that the Total Fundoplication (Nissen) don’t show any grade of dysphagia in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease and hipocontractil esophagus. Patients and methods: This is a descriptive, retrolective, and longitudinal study were included patients with diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease, hipocontractil esophagus and subjected a laparoscopic fundoplication. Results: Between January 1996 to January 2004, we included 301 patients, divided in two groups: Group I (Nissen) = 201p (66.5%), y Group II (Toupet) = 100p (33.5%). The surgical time average in the group I was 45 min and 70 min in the group II. In the group I there were more number of patients with dysphagia during the first month; nevertheless, after the six months, both groups had the same results as regard dysphagia. The gastroesophageal reflux control is the same (100%) in both groups. Conclusion: The results are satisfactory either the Nissen or Toupet fundoplication to control the gastroesophageal reflux. We demonstrated that the Nissen fundoplication are safe in patients with hipocontractil esophagus. REFERENCES Gotley DC, Smithers BM, Rhodes M, Menzies B, Branicki FJ, Nathanson L.
