Abstract

First of all, ‘GOR’ should be distinguished from ‘GOR disease’ or ‘pathological GOR’. ‘GOR’ usually refers to an episode of reflux of the gastric contents into the oesophagus. This is a normal phenomenon at all ages. Classifying it as pathological GOR or GOR disease is dependent on the severity as defined by various objective criteria. I infer from the article that the authors implicitly refer to ‘GOR disease’ when using their term, ‘GOR’, as all these subjects needed surgery for it.
