What is the recommended treatment in patients with extraesophageal symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)? Is it different from the standard treatment of GERD?
Peter Malfertheiner: No, if we have established reflux underlying these symptoms, we would only increase the dose of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and have a prolonged period of treatment in order to achieve response. That is the difference. But it is still the maximal acid inhibition possible with a double standard dose to help these patients.
