There has been many studies regarding the use of Dor or Toupet fundoplication
and have reported equally good results.
This article focuses on the outcomes associated with two fundoplication surgeries commonly used to treat GERD: nissen fundoplication (NF) and toupet fundoplication (TF).
One such method is the toupet fundoplication (TF) (see Figure 2).

Laparoscopic Heller myotomy with Toupet fundoplication
In general surgery, robotic systems have enhanced laparoscopic Heller myotomy, esophagectomy, pancreatectomy, pyloroplasty when performed at the time of antireflux surgery, and fashioning the posterior suture lines of Toupet fundoplication
Methods: Data were collected prospectively on all patients undergoing laparoscopic myotomy and Toupet fundoplication during a 6-year period.
Fifty-three patients underwent laparoscopic myotomy with Toupet fundoplication (91%), and four had laparoscopic myotomy without a fundoplication (6%).
At this point the diaphragmatic hiatus is loosely closed, and a Toupet fundoplication is performed in standard fashion (Fig.
The procedure is known as the Toupet Fundoplication
