Control reflux, long-term.1

Reflux sufferers, meet LINX® — a revolutionary treatment for reflux. It’s a simple device with life-changing potential. LINX® is intended for patients diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) as defined by abnormal pH testing, and who are seeking an alternative to continuous acid suppression therapy. Continue on to learn more about this small device and its results.

About LINX®

Reflux Barrier — One of the causes of Reflux is a weak muscle in your esophagus called the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES). The LES is your body’s Reflux Barrier. Normally your Reflux Barrier acts like a one-way valve, allowing food and liquid to pass into the stomach, but preventing stomach contents from flowing back into the esophagus. In people with reflux, the Reflux Barrier allows harmful acid and bile to flow back into the esophagus.
Stomach Acid — Stomach acid plays an important role to break down food into molecules your body can absorb. When acid leaves your stomach, it’s toxic and can wreak havoc on your esophagus, lungs and throat, causing painful symptoms and may lead to serious complications.

Esophagus — Insult, then injury over and over again. When stomach acid rises upward, it can wear away the lining of the esophagus, causing irritation, inflammation and painful symptoms .
*LINX® is not intended to prevent cancer
Lungs — Stomach acid can also enter the lungs. Once there, it can cause coughing, wheezing, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma and other breathing issues.
