Kurze Zusammenfassung

The purpose of this project is to lay the groundwork for a proposed clinical trial to compare the effectiveness of two approaches to gastroesophageal reflux disease: treatment with medications and treatment with anti-reflux surgery. This project includes a non-interventional pilot study to test ways of measuring outcomes of treatment, and to gauge potential participants' willingness to enroll in the proposed clinical trial.
