Gastro-oesophageal reflux disorder (GORD)

Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GORD), also known as acid reflux, is a common relapsing condition caused by repeated reflux of the contents of the stomach. Some patients have the reflux symptoms; others have evidence of mucosal damage (oesophagitis) with or without symptoms; a small minority have complications such as bleeding or stricture.
