The LINX® Reflux Management System: Stop Reflux at its Source*

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), also called reflux, is a chronic disease that affects an estimated 1 in 5 U.S. adults.1 GERD is caused by a weak lower esophageal sphincter (LES) that allows acid and bile to move up, or "reflux", from the stomach into the esophagus, often causing injury to the lining of the esophagus and symptoms such as, heartburn, chest pain, regurgitation, sore throat, and cough.

 

When left untreated, GERD can lead to serious complications including stricture, Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer. The LINX® Reflux Management System is designed to keep the weak esophageal sphincter closed to prevent reflux. Click here to learn how the LINX® System works.
