Gastrooesophageal reflux disease

GORD; GERD; gastroesophagal reflux disease

"When the regurgitation of gastric contents causes complications or contributes to tissue damage or inflammation (e.g. esophagitis, obstructive apnea, reactive airway disease, pulmonary aspiration, feeding and swallowing difficulties, or failure to thrive), it is called GERD."
