Partial Fundoplication May Have Edge in Treating GERD Partial Fundoplication May Have Edge in Treating GERD

In surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), partial fundoplication (PF) prompts less dysphagia than total fundoplication (TF), according to randomized trial results reported by Scandinavian researchers.Reuters Health Information

Medication, such as proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs), have been recommended first line therapy for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), but not all patients receive satisfactory relief with drug therapy, alone. We developed the endoluminal fundoplication by applying ESD (endoscopic submucosal dissection), and named ESD-G (ESD for GERD). We previously reported about efficacy of ESD-G (Scand J Gastroenterol. 2014, 49: 1409-13). We will herein report of novel result including the added patients undergone ESD-G.

ConclusionsA bilateral duplex collecting system with refluxing upper pole moiety ureter is a very rare entity. The diagnosis should be suspected when exploring any flank pain with recurrent urinary tract infections to avoid subsequent renal impairment. Furthermore, this case shows how some common symptoms may lead to finding an unexpected urinary tract abnormality.

In this study, we investigated the antihypertensive effect and underlying mechanisms of P. asiatica L. seeds extract (PASE) in spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR). Male SHRs were treated with 2.5 mg/kg of fosinopril (FOS) and 400 mg/kg of PASE orally per day for once or 12 weeks. SHR or Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) receiving vehicle (distilled water) was used as control. The results demonstrated systolic, diastolic, and mean blood pressures (SBP, DBP, and MBP) were significantly lowered after single and long-term intragastric administration of PASE. The cardiac and aortic index and collagen accumulation were improved in the PA...

Bile reflux is a factor in the appearance of severe esophagitis and Barrett ´s esophagus which have been reported after a sleeve gastrectomy (SG). Incompetent lower esophageal sphincter and increased gastroesophageal acid reflux have been demonstrated after this operation. Some reports have shown bile content in the antrum during endoscopic control but there are no investi gations that objectively confirm the presence of duodenogastric bile reflux in these patients.

ConclusionsIn older children, the normal late DMSA scan predicted the absence of high-grade VUR, obviating the need for a VCUG. This approach could be a possible strategy for children not studied at acute infection time.

Conclusion: The prevalence of VUR was 25.9% in this study and 33.3% in ≤1 year age group. There was a loss of function in delayed presenters with associated ipsilateral VUR. There was delayed drainage postpyeloplasty in patients with VUR. A preoperative voiding cystourethrogram should be done in children <1 year age before pyeloplasty so that associated VUR if detected can be concurrently managed along with pyeloplasty and preserve nephrons affected by the dual pathology.
