Authors: Liu J, Chen H, Wu D, Wei R, Lv C, Dong J, Wu D, Yu Y Abstract Background: Stimulant laxatives are still considered the most common treatment for functional outlet obstruction constipation (FOOC). However, the effectiveness of laxatives is unsatisfactory, and the long-term use of laxatives may cause certain adverse events. With this in mind, it is, however, paramount that novel complementary treatment(s) and/or other forms of alternative medicine are adequately investigated. Aims: The study aims to explore the effects and potential mechanism(s) of transcutaneous electrical acustimulation (TEA) combined ...
Authors: Sun Y, Yan C, Jin S, Shi C, Zhao J, Li G Abstract Recent studies have identified the curative effects of traditional Chinese medicine for constipation. The mechanism of action of Guiren Runchang granules (GRGs) in the treatment of slow transit constipation (STC) was evaluated in this study. Here, we assessed the efficacy of GRG by comparing the differences in fecal characteristics, stool weight, and intestinal transit rate (ITR) among 6 groups (n = 12/group), which were administered three concentrations of GRG, mosapride, and saline. The influence of GRG on the SCF/c-kit pathway, AQP4, and se...
Conclusions: The data provided in this study may be a valuable supplement to the medication guidelines for the treatment of chronic constipation.
Conclusion: Our results suggest that the detection of pαSyn, but not αSyn, especially in the muscularis propria of GI tracts, could be a sensitive prodromal biomarker for PD. PMID: 33029342 [PubMed]
(University of Eastern Finland) Women are 2-3 times more likely to suffer from constipation during pregnancy and right after childbirth than at any other time in their life, a new study from the University of Eastern Finland shows.
Constipation is one of the most common chronic disorders in childhood. Functional constipation (FC) is the most common form of constipation and can be defined as difficult or infrequent passage of stool. Current practice guidelines for FC are well defined; however, primary provider perception and treatment often differ from clinical practice guidelines. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are vital in improving overall outcomes. Primary care providers should be knowledgeable about the diagnosis, initial treatment, and when to refer a child to a gastroenterology specialist.
ConclusionWe demonstrated the feasibility of robot-assisted re-do sacrohysteropexy. In the surgical technique herein reported, we showed how we were able to partially re-use a previously implanted mesh together with a new one to ensure fixation of a multi-compartment pelvic organ prolapse.
Conclusions Prevalence of abdominal pain and constipation is high and increased after one year. Negative perception of school toilets with consecutive avoidance behavior could be an important and improvable influence.

This study analyzed QoL data from a prospective multicenter patient-reported outcome registry in patients with pancreatic or periampullary carcinoma registered in the nationwide Netherlands Cancer Registry (2015-2018). Baseline and delta QoL, between baseline and 3-month follow-up, were assessed with the Happiness, EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core 30 (QLQ-C30), and QLQ-PAN26 questionnaires. The relationship between QoL and survival was assessed using Cox regression models, and additional prognostic value of separate items was assessed using Nagelkerke R2 (explained variance). RESULTS: For the baseline and delta...
CONCLUSIONS: In this cohort of women with vulvar diseases, vitamin D levels and supplementation were not significantly different amongst women with vulvar lichen sclerosus or other non-lichenoid vulvar diseases. Furthermore, vitamin D levels are not serum biomarkers for OAB, urinary incontinence, constipation, or IBS. PMID: 30747611 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
