LINX Reflux Management System
TIF (Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication)
The LINX® System is a small, flexible band of magnets enclosed in titanium beads that is placed around the lower esophageal sphincter in order to tighten it. The magnetic attraction between the beads helps keep the weak LES closed to prevent reflux.
Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication is an incision-free technique that offers patients a method of anatomically correcting their weak sphincter, reconstructing the defective muscular ring and strengthening the LES to minimize the occurrence of acid reflux
