    I know the company went out of business but does anyone has more information about this procedure? Is it done in any other countries?

    The company is out of business I am afraid. They found out that the procedure is not that gut in the end.

      I found this review from 2007: Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DiscoveryPanel.P ubmed_Discovery_RA&linkpos=3&log$=relatedreviews&l ogdbfrom=pubmed

      CONCLUSIONS: Endotherapy has shown the potential to treat (uncomplicated) GERD. However, some early procedures have failed or proven unsafe. Further developments and studies are necessary to determine what modifications to these techniques are required to produce optimal efficacy and durability. Until then, widespread clinical use of endotherapy for GERD should probably be avoided.
