Toupet Fundoplication or 270° Stomach Wrap to Treat Reflux

This animation describes how a Toupet Fundoplication or 270° stomach wrap is performed to surgically stop reflux from happening. Theoretically, the Toupet Fundoplication addresses some of the shortcomings (bloating, trouble swallowing, inability to vomit/burp) experienced with the more standard Nissen Fundoplication or 360° stomach wrap, especially for patients suffering from both reflux and ineffective esophageal motility. This animation was created with Dr. Kevin Gillian at the Virginia Heartburn and Hernia Institute. 

Another video was also created that includes actual surgical footage of a Toupet Fundoplication which you can watch here.
