Background/Aims: Since its original description in 1956 by Rudolph Nissen, minor changes were made in technical details of Nissen fundoplication. After the introduction of laparoscopic fundoplication, in order to reduce the rate of complications, some technical modifications led to the development of "floppy" Nissen fundoplication.
