Expert Consensus – Sizing Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation (LINX) AFS-EFS

2023-12-28T20:15:13+00:00

Expert Consensus – Sizing Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation (LINX) AFS-EFS Sizing of the esophagus during MSA placement is one of the most critical components of this procedure. Experience and some limited data have taught us that sizing the device more tightly around the esophagus appears to result in more dysphagia and possibly an increased erosion rate. On the other hand, sizing slightly looser in a non-compressive manner does not appear to compromise reflux control. Theoretically the appropriate size is one that is non-compressive around the esophagus. Practically this can be difficult to determine. Various ways to size include: (1) simple visual [...]
