The laparoscopic fundoplicatio is the "gold standard" among surgical therapy of gastrooesophageal reflux disease. In this context the Toupet fundoplicatio is an alternative indication to the Nissen fundoplicatio. The lesser dysphagia rate is specified as postoperative advantage. To avoid complications, a standardized procedure is relevant for a good postoperative outcome, even in more complex procedures. In this article, the indications and surgical methods are illustrated, as they are performed by the authors. The operation steps are demonstrated in addition to the text also in the attached video.
