A Less Invasive Alternative for GERD

Treatment TermsEsophagus disorders Overview When antacids no longer alleviate the burning, belching symptoms of GERD, an acid reflux procedure performed through the mouth can provide much-needed relief. Duke Health ’s Jacob Klapper, MD, and Matthew Hartwig, MD, are among the few esophageal surgeons offering this procedure in North Carolina. “We’re constantly looking for newer, less invasive options to give people freedom from chronic reflux and from taking antacid medications,” Dr. Klapper said.

This study aimed to delineate the causal relation between GERD and asthma.MethodsParticipants of the Korean National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort 2002-2013 who were ≥ 20 years old were selected for this study. In study I, 116,502 GERD patients were matched in a 1:2 ratio to 233,004 control I participants, and the hazard ratio (HR) of asthma in GERD patients was analyzed. In study II, 104,146 asthma patients were matched in a 1:1 ratio to 104,146 control II participants, and the HR for GERD in asthma patients was analyzed. A stratified Cox-proportional hazards model was used. Subgroup analyses were per...

Look at Pamela’s spectacular progress that began with the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox and posted on the Detox Facebook page, showing her standing in ONE LEG of her old pants! Her experience illustrates just how awful health, weight, and life can get on the wrong way of eating, but also just how dramatic the changes can be when you finally get it right. “It’s a long one, but hang with me! “I’ve been debating whether to share this picture or not… I found my ‘before’ pants and decided to see what would happen… I thought I’d take another picture after I put on so...

AbstractIntroductionSleeve gastrectomy (SG) has overtaken Roux-En-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) as the most common bariatric procedure worldwide. However, there is little long-term data comparing the two procedures.ObjectivesWe perform a systematic review and meta-analysis comparing 5-year outcomes of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing RYGB and SG.MethodsMedline, Embase, The Cochrane Library, and NHS Evidence were searched for English language RCTs comparing RYGB with SG and assessed weight loss and/or comorbidity resolution at 5 years.ResultsFive studies were included in the final analysis. Meta-analysis demonstrates...

ute;n Riechmann E Abstract OBJECTIVES: The incidence of eosinophilic esophagitis is unknown in our area. The aim of our study was to determine the incidence of eosinophilic esophagitis and its possible association with the most frequent absolute annual pollen counts. METHODS: A descriptive retrospective multicenter observational study was designed to calculate the incidence of eosinophilic esophagitis in children aged under 15 years in the southwest region of Madrid, Spain in 2002-2013 (data were provided by the Statistics Institute of Madrid). We collected data on age, sex, clinical presentation, and date of...

Publication date: Available online 9 November 2019Source: The Journal of Supercritical FluidsAuthor(s): A Novella, S. Camy, J.-S. CondoretAbstractFractionation of dilute acetic acid aqueous mixtures was operated using a continuous countercurrent packed column with supercritical CO2. A generic procedure was developed to assess the feasibility of such an operation. Experiments were performed using a 2 m high and 17 mm inner diameter column, in the range (10-15 MPa) and (40 °C-60 °C). Thermodynamics of the mixture was described using the Soave-Redlich-Kwong equation modified by Bosto...

Publication date: Available online 8 November 2019Source: Computational and Theoretical ChemistryAuthor(s): M. Emin CinarAbstractThermal reaction of 1,8-diketone in presence of Lawessońs reagent (LR) or P4S10 under toluene reflux condition provided expected fused five-membered thiophene and dithiin compounds along with 2,4-diphenylthiophene (2,4-DPT), 2,5-diphenylthiophene (2,5-DPT) and 3,6-diphenylthieno[3,2-b][1], [4]dithiine (3,6-DPTDT). DFT level computations conducted to shed light on this intriguing mechanism indicate in situ generation of phenylthiirene from phenylthiiran analogue, which leads to the formation of t...

ConclusionsAlthough semi-solid nutrients have several advantages, including reduced diarrhea and gastroesophageal reflux, evidence on semi-solid nutrients via the nasogastric tube is insufficient. It should be noted that semi-solid nutrient reflux can be more fatal than liquid nutrients.
