  Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is defined as symptoms or mucosal damage produced by the abnormal reflux of gastric contents into the esophagus. Medical, endoscopic, and open/laparoscopic surgical methods are used to treat GERD.
  Over the last years a number of anti-reflux endoluminal procedures (suturing, injections, implants and radiofrequency energy application) have been developed for treating GΕRD, thus obviating the need for long-term proton pump inhibitors (PPI) and the potential morbidity of laparoscopic fundoplication. Although all these techniques were able to improve symptoms, the quality of life, PPI use and esophageal acid reduction were unremarkable. Moreover, some early endoscopic procedures have failed or proven unsafe, while no single endoscopic modality has been yet proved or accepted as the endoscopic therapy of choice for GERD.
