Brief Summary:
APC of gastric inlet patches is successful for the treatment of globus sensations in the throat (Bajbouj et al Gastroenterology 2009; 137:440-4). There is no data for long term efficiency of this treatment. To measure long term efficacy all patients treated with this therapy in our clinic were followed up with complaint-evaluation sheets and endoscopy.
