Sammanfattning

BACKGROUND: The most effective therapeutic strategy in newly diagnosed achalasia is yet to be established. Therefore we designed a study in which pneumatic dilatation was compared to laparoscopic cardiomyotomy to which was added a partial posterior fundoplication. PATIENTS AND RESULTS: A series of 51 patients (24 males, mean age 44 years) were randomly allocated to the therapeutic modalities (dilatation = 26, surgery = 25). All patients were followed for at least 12 months, and during that period the pneumatic dilatations strategy had significantly more treatment failures (P = 0.04). Only minor differences emerged between the study groups when symptoms, dysphagia scorings, and quality-of-life assessments were evaluated 12 months after initiation of therapy. CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic myotomy was found to be superior to an endoscopic balloon dilatation strategy in the treatment of achalasia when studied during the first 12 months after treatment.
