STOP REFLUX AT ITS SOURCE

The LINX Procedure: The Link to Acid Reflux Relief

The LINX Reflux Management System is a surgical procedure that lessens the effects of GERD. LINX was designed to stop reflux at its source by restoring the body’s natural barrier, the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES). LINX is a small, flexible band composed of titanium beads with magnetic cores. The band is placed around the LES through a laparoscopic procedure. The magnets hold it shut which stops stomach acid from breaking the seal. However, the magnetic force is still weak enough that swallowing can loosen it before it reconnects. This allows food and other necessities to enter the stomach and continue natural bodily function.

UNDERSTANDING GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE (GERD)

  • GERD, more commonly, acid reflux, is a digestive disorder that affects the muscular ring connecting the esophagus to the stomach, also known as the lower esophageal sphincter. Normally, the sphincter prevents food from creeping up into the esophagus from the stomach.

 

  • A patient diagnosed with GERD, presents with a weakened sphincter muscle, which fails to close tightly, thereby allowing, food and stomach acids to flow back into the esophagus (reflux).  The esophageal lining can become inflamed or irritated due to these acids, causing the burning chest pain, sour taste, or cough that patients suffer from.

WHEN IS ACID REFLUX SURGERY NECESSARY?

Those with severe, chronic esophageal acid reflux may need surgery to correct the problem if other medical treatments are not relieving their symptoms.

When left untreated, chronic gastroesophageal reflux can cause further complications including esophagitis, esophageal ulcers, bleeding, or scarring of the esophagus.
