I've been reading about
this very subject.
I guess, one of the reasons the surgeons don't want to touch patients with normal LES pressures is because the possibility of post-operative swallowing problems (dysphagia) is much higher in such patients (us). Our main problem is the TLESRs and the fundoplication does reduce these relaxations - although the exact mechanism is not clearly understood, but it may also introduce / cause dysphagia.www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11986014
