LINX Reflux Management System
The LINX Reflux Management System is indicated for patients diagnosed with pathologic Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD) as defined by abnormal pH testing, and who continue to have chronic GORD symptoms despite maximum medical therapy.

How LINX Works
LINX is a small, flexible ring of magnets placed around the Oesophagus during a minimally invasive procedure.
The magnets help to keep the lower esophageal sphincter (LOS) closed so that acid and bile do not flow from the stomach to the Oesophagus.
When you eat or drink, the forces from swallowing cause the magnets to separate, the LINX device to expand, and the LOS to open for food or liquid to pass into the stomach.
The LINX device is MRI conditional, so patients can undergo magnetic resonance imaging up to either 0.7-Tesla (0.7T) or 1.5-Tesla (1.5T), depending on the LINX model implanted.
