abstract

  • LNF should be considered as a treatment option for professional voice users with LPR with symptoms refractory to standard or super-high-dose medical management. LNF may decrease or eliminate the need for postoperative PPI usage. The RFS may not be sensitive enough to monitor changes in LPR severity. Patients, especially those on super-high-dose medication administration, are satisfied with the improvement in LPR symptoms after anti-reflux surgery.
