This action causes pain , which is often called heartburn. The term refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (refractory GERD) describes those patients who continue to have symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux despite standard treatment with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).

However, not all patients with gastroesophageal reflux are considered to have Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. This diagnosis is reserved for those patients who have symptomatic reflux (to be defined below) as a primary condition. Among gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) patients, those not exhibiting esophageal mucosal injury at endoscopy, but a proven relationship betweengroup, according to the 24-h pH profile and to symptom-reflux association indices: indeed, it has been reported that in 3050 of symptomatic.
