Treatment of GERD with extraesophageal symptoms

Peter Malfertheiner

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.
