Recurrent gastroesophageal reflux is a common complication after fundoplication procedures. We report our experience with laparoscopic redo Nissen fundoplications in pediatric patients with a history of open antireflux procedure. The medical records of all patients with a history of open antireflux procedure who underwent a subsequent laparoscopic redo Nissen fundoplication were reviewed. One hundred eighty laparoscopic Nissen fundoplications were performed between September 2004 and September 2012; 23 were redo procedures. Twelve patients had a history of prior open fundoplication. Average time between operations was 113.7±64 months. Seven patients presented with emesis, 4 with aspiration pneumonia, and 1 with clinical reflux. Eight had a history of cerebral palsy and/or seizure disorder. Laparoscopic revision was completed in 100% of the patients, with no intraoperative complications. Average operative time was 177.5±86 minutes. Seven patients were able to resume feeds on postoperative Day 1. Median length of stay was 3 days. Median follow-up was 21 months. One patient required a redo antireflux procedure 8 months later for persistent dysphagia. Thus laparoscopic revision Nissen fundoplication after a prior open antireflux procedure is feasible and safe.
