Background: Laparoscopic Heller myotomy LHM with partial fundoplication is an effective treatment for achalasia. However, the type of fundoplication is still a subject of debate. Aim: The aim of the study is to identify which partial fundoplication leads to better control of acid exposure, manometric parameters, and symptoms scores. The preoperative diagnosis was made by high-resolution manometry HRM , upper endoscopy, and barium esophagogram.

Results: Seventy-three patients were randomized, 38 underwent Dor and 35 Toupet. Baseline characteristics were similar between groups.

The number of patients with abnormal acid exposure was significantly lower for Dor 6. No differences were found in postoperative symptom scores at 1, 6, or 24 months. Conclusion: There were no differences in symptom scores or HRM between fundoplications in the long term. A higher percentage of abnormal h pH test were found for the Toupet group, with no difference in the long term.
