Hi, I Had A TIF W/Esophyx In Nov. 2011. I Had An Endoscopy Done On 9-9-14 And I Was Told The TIF Has Disentegrated. I'm Confused.

Loose fundoplication. While a great surgery for GERD and hiatal hernias, fundoplications can occasionally become loose or unwrapped. According to the textbook, Current Surgical Therapy (11th edition) by Cameron: "The total failure rate [of TIF] was 8.1% (patients subsequently needed either Nissen fundoplication or redo-TIF)" Please speak to the surgeon that performed the TIF and discuss retreatment options.
