Operations to treat complicated gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) have become the third most commonly performed general surgical procedure in large pediatric centers, and many surgical techniques have come into use to prevent gastroesophageal reflux. This paper presents our experience with gastric tube cardioplasty, a new procedure described by Oktay Mutaf (Mutaf procedure). Eleven children with GERD were successfully operated on. The postoperative period was uneventful, and all patients were symptom-free.
