Stretta Procedure for GERD: Successful 10 Year Follow-Up Data Presented at Digestive Disease Week--Sustained Improvement, Long-Term Efficacy
Date:5/19/2013

type="disc">
  • Statistically significant and sustained improvement in GERD as measured by HQRL scores, patient satisfaction, and reduced medication requirements
  • Patients with variant anatomy and prior Nissen fundoplication (anti-reflux surgery) responded as well as those with normal anatomy
  • Demonstrable improvement in Barrett's tissue, and in some cases disappearance of metaplasia and dysplasia
  • The reduction in reflux as a result of the Stretta procedure may protect against esophageal cancer
  • The 10 year results compare favorably with the results of more invasive Nissen surgery, particularly when considering the substantially reduced risk of complications with Stretta versus all anti-reflux surgery methods
  • SAGES Gives Stretta Its Strongest Recommendation

    The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) recently issued new Clinical Guidelines that give Stretta therapy for the treatment of GERD its highest recommendation based on strong clinical evidence from 32 clinical trials.

    "This 10 year data adds to the already robust body of long term and Level 1 data for Stretta," said Will Rutan , CEO of Mederi Therapeutics. "This extremely long-term follow up confirms what was noted in the recent SAGES guidelines for GERD treatment…that Stretta is a very safe and very effective treatment whose time has come."

    Stretta Reimbursement

    Stretta is currently covered by Medicare in 12 states, nationwide by Tricare and the VA Systems, and locally by select commercial insurance carriers.  Together they insure more than 36 million Americans.
