AbstractIntroductionBariatric surgery is increasingly performed. Since there are numerous surgical techniques, the effects of these on the esophageal function are still poorly understood. We aimed at assessing the effect of different techniques on esophagogastric junction (EGJ), esophageal peristalsis and reflux exposure using high-resolution manometry (HRM), and impedance-pH monitoring (MII-pH).MethodsAll obese patients underwent symptomatic questionnaires, endoscopy, HRM, and MII-pH before and 1  year after surgery. Esophageal function and EGJ were classified according to Chicago Classification V. 3.0. Intragastric ...

AbstractBackgroundFunctional and motility disorders (FMDs) are common conditions that cause significant morbidity and economic loss. A comprehensive analysis of these disorders and their impact has not been done in an inpatient setting.AimsWe seek to evaluate adult hospitalization trends for FMDs in the USA.MethodsThe National Inpatient Sample between 2005 and 2014 was analyzed. Poisson regression was used to assess hospitalization trends for FMDs referenced to non-FMD hospitalizations. Linear regression was used to assess cost per hospitalization and length of stay (LOS). All models were adjusted for age, sex, primary ins...

Conclusions: The current meta-analysis found that the risk of GERD was numerically lower among statin users although the pooled result did not reach statistical significance. Therefore, more studies are still needed to further clarify this potential benefit of statins.

Mean nocturnal baseline impedance (MNBI) and post-reflux swallow-induced peristaltic wave (PSPW) index are able to increase the diagnostic yield of impedance-pH and are associated to proton pump inhibitor (PPI) response. Few data concerning these variables in patients with extra-esophageal symptoms (EES) are available.

Authors: Deng Y, Pan L, Qian W Abstract Changes in the levels of serum oxidative stress indexes, gastrointestinal hormones and inflammatory factors in children with different severity of reflux esophagitis (RE) were detected. Sixty child patients diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) via gastroscopy were selected and divided into non-erosive reflux disease group (NERD group, n=12) and RE group (n=48) according to whether there was esophageal mucosal injury. In RE group, the patients were further divided into grade I RE group (n=15), grade II RE group (n=18) and grade III RE group (n=15) based on the...
