dc.description.abstract There are controversies regarding existence and incidence of short esophagus. the authors reviewed the literature incidence of short esophagus among operated patients due to gastroesophageal reflux disease in the last 3 years. the overall incidence of short esophagus was 1.53%. the proposed risk factors (paraesophageal hernia, Barrett's esophagus, reoperation, esophageal strictures and access route) do have a higher incidence of short esophagus, with the exception of the Barrett's esophagus. Although several biases can be associated with the review, the authors identified the short esophagus incidence in the literature. en
