The Linx Reflux Management System

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Linx Reflux Management System is an FDA-approved magnetic esophageal sphincter device. Linx is indicated for patients with diagnosed gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), confirmed by abnormal pH testing, who continue to have symptoms of GERD despite maximum medical therapy. Linx has been studied extensively in human subjects, and the long-term results on its safety and efficacy have been published. This session will be helpful for anyone interested in learning about this new technology, its place in the management of GERD, and the challenges in coding and billing for this procedure.

Learning Objectives:
  • Define GERD, its epidemiology, and its medico-economic impact.
  • Identify the indications for the medical and surgical management of GERD.
  • Describe the Linx procedure, including its expected outcomes and complications.
