The ARROW study


A national, collaborative, prospective audit to quantify the variation in practice and inform future studies with regards to anti-reflux operations.

COVID-19 Update

All elective operations have been cancelled for at least 3 months to increase capacity to manage COVID-19 patients. Therefore, we are postponing the start of the patient survey until further notice. The ARROW surgeon's survey is open now. 


This national, collaborative, prospective audit will quantify the variation in anti-reflux practice and inform future studies. 

Anti-reflux surgery and workup practises vary across the UK and there is no level 1 evidence to support one type of fundoplication over others, despite increasingly novel techniques being developed.
