Perhaps you mean: TIF (transoral incisionless fundoplication) in which a device is inserted into the esophagus which partially wraps the the upper stomach from the inside requiring no incisions.It is less invasive that surgical or laparoscopic procedures and seems to be fairly effective. Long term results are not known. Preliminarily, it appears to have a higher failure rate than the older procedures-not a miracle!
