PTH-152 Heller’s myotomy and pneumatic dilatation in the treatment of achalasia: a population-based case-control study assessing long-term quality of life

PTH-152 Heller’s myotomy and pneumatic dilatation in the treatment of achalasia: a population-based case-control study assessing long-term quality of life

 

120 Achalasia patients were studied.

 

Read the conclusion carefully:

 

"Despite treatment, achalasia patients have significantly worse long-term physical HRQL (Health-related quality of life) compared to population controls. Poor HRQL is most pronounced in patients requiring dual treatment where mental and physical HRQL are significantly impaired. Overall, no long-term HRQL differences were observed between the treatment modalities. However, laparoscopic Heller’s myotomy may confer a benefit and further studies with long-term follow-up are warranted."

 

Why not start doing something about your quality of life?
