Definition, prevalence and physiopathology. 2. Work up and role of endoscopy. 3. Medical treatment. 4. PPI : Equivalence of the medications ? Equivalence of the generic drugs ? 5. Barrett's esophagus. 6. Reflux and negative endoscopy. 7. Extra-oesophageal manifestations. 8. Surgical treatments. 9. Endoscopic treatments.
