Esophageal dysmotility can decrease luminal clearance and increase the risk of aspiration and GERD and contribute to allograft dysfunction. We sought to determine the impact of pre-transplant esophageal dysmotility on allograft function, GERD, rejection and survival after lung transplantation.

Esophageal dysmotility is very common in lung transplant recipients and is thought to predispose to allograft injury through higher risk of aspiration. At our center, we routinely test lung transplant recipients for esophageal dysmotility with High Resolution Manometry (HRM) at 3 months post-transplant. We hypothesize that lung transplant recipients (LTRs) with significant esophageal dysmotility are more likely to develop lung injury leading to CLAD and death.

This report investigates the effect of esophageal motility disorders on CLAD after lung transplantation. We hypothesized that esophageal dysmotility will result in more frequent development of CLAD.

OBJECTIVE: Postprandial hypotension occurs frequently in older survivors of critical illness at 3 months after discharge. We aimed to determine whether postprandial hypotension and its predictors - gastric dysmotility and cardiovascular autonomic dysfuncti...

CONCLUSIONS: In older adults who were evaluated 3 and 12 months after ICU discharge, postprandial hypotension at 3 months was associated with an increased risk of subsequent falls, but the prevalence of postprandial hypotension decreased with time. PMID: 32102643 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Honda H, Hanayama Y, Obika M, Hasegawa K, Hamahara J, Kishida M, Hagiya H, Ogawa H, Kataoka H, Otsuka F Abstract A relationship between diabetes and depression is apparent. To clarify the clinical relevance of diabetic patients' gastroesophageal symptoms to their psychological status, we retrospectively analyzed the data from a Selfrating Depression Scale (SDS) and a Frequency Scale for Symptoms of Gastroesophageal reflux disease (FSSG) among 143 type 2 diabetic patients who visited a general medicine department. Among the 45 Japanese patients enrolled, the group with relatively high SDS scores (≥ 36) s...

In conclusion, the components of BGH may exert synergistic effects on improving gastric emptying via various targets. BGH is considered to be potentially useful for treating gastrointestinal dysmotility with psychological symptoms. PMID: 32089720 [PubMed]

We present the case of an 11-year old boy with mosaic trisomy 13 and an end ileostomy (for gut dysmotility) who presented with a catastrophic gastrointestinal haemorrhage during a prolonged Paediatric Intensive Care (PICU) stay recovering from an episode of presumed sepsis. A normal upper GI endoscopy was followed by a laparoscopy which revealed a small bowel adhesion to the anterior abdominal wall which had facilitated the creation of a jejuno-jejunal fistula that had eroded through a mesenteric artery. The child recovered well after a limited laparotomy and segmental small bowel resection.This case highlights an extremel...

AbstractDysphagia lusoria is rare embryologic defect of the aortic arch vasculature characterized by an aberrant retro-esophageal course of the right subclavian artery (RSA), comprising a vascular sling. This may manifest clinically with symptoms of dysphagia or reflux. Given the rarity of this pathology, there remains uncertainty regarding the most effective treatment algorithm. Vascular decompression procedure surgery is often used to rectify the aberrant vascular morphology. However, a low percentage of aberrant arteries result in trachea-esophageal symptoms. As such, we suggest (1) one must exclude co-morbid esophageal...
