Background: Controversial findings about the relationships between obesity and gastro-esophageal reflux have been reported, as well as about the effects of weight loss and bariatric surgery on reflux. The aims of this study were to evaluate esophageal motility and gastro-esophageal acid circadian patterns in obese patients and to test the effects of vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) on these parameters. Methods: 14 obese subjects (BMI 36-53 kg/m 2 ), 4 men, 10 women, 27-61 years old, admitted f...
