Excerpt

This Statistical Brief presents national estimates of GERD hospitalizations from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP), for 1998 and 2005. First, national estimates of GERD-related discharges and hospital costs are provided for 1998 and 2005. GERD trend differences among age, gender, region or household income are analyzed. Next, we investigate trends in the level of severity of GERD. We examine trends in GERD hospital stays with moderate to alarming symptoms, as well as trends in severe complications associated with GERD. Finally, the trend in anti-reflux surgery for severe GERD complications is examined.
