Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) affects as much as a third of western populations. Proton pump inhibitors, the initial therapy for typical symptoms, fail in up to 40% of patients. The management of these nonresponders poses significant challenges clinically and, when patients remain symptomatic for many years, delays in treatment can increase costs and worsen outcomes. This course will review the modern diagnostic and treatment strategies for patients presenting with both typical (heartburn, regurgitation, chest pain) and atypical (cough, hoarseness, choking) symptoms.
