The Effect of Gastric Helicobacter pylori Colonization on Nasal Functions.

The Effect of Gastric Helicobacter pylori Colonization on Nasal Functions. Ear Nose Throat J. 2019 Apr 24;:145561319840825 Authors: Kumral TL, Gökden Y, Saltürk Z, Berkiten G, Yıldırım G, Ataç E, Tutar B, Uyar Y Abstract The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of gastric Helicobacter pylori colonization on nasal functions. The study enrolled patients (n = 100) who underwent endoscopy for gastroesophageal reflux disease. Patients with laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) were identified by Reflux Symptom Index (RSI) and Reflux Finding Score (RFS). Patients were divided into 2 groups: LPR (+) (n = 64) H pylori (+), RSI> 13, RFS> 7; LPR (-) (n = 36) H pylori (+), RSI

ConclusionThe results of this study suggest PPI overuse in France, not always in line with the French guidelines. In particular, inappropriate co-prescription with NSAID was frequent. Efforts should be made to limit PPI treatment to appropriate indications and durations.

AbstractThe Indian Society of Gastroenterology developed this evidence-based practice guideline for management of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in adults. A modified Delphi process was used to develop this consensus containing 58 statements, which were generated by electronic voting iteration as well as face-to-face meeting and review of the supporting literature primarily from India. These statements include 10 on epidemiology, 8 on clinical presentation, 10 on investigations, 23 on treatment (including medical, endoscopic, and surgical modalities), and 7 on complications of GERD. When the proportion of those who...

This study lists the various anomalies on the basis of 504 references selected from a PubMed search in October 2018. RESULTS: The anomalies are grouped into three categories: anatomical anomalies: duodenal atresia and stenosis (3.9%), duodenal web and annular pancreas; aberrant right subclavian artery (12% of children with DS with cardiac anomaly); Hirschsprung's disease (2.76%); anorectal malformation (1.16%); congenital vascular malformations of the liver; orofacial cleft, bifid uvula (4.63%), and submucous orofacial cleft; esophageal atresia (0.5-0.9%); pyloric stenosis (0.3%); diaphragmatic hernia; malrotation of ...

The etiology of adenocarcinoma of the cardia and the gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) is not known and is doubted. It is thought that cardia gastric adenocarcinoma (CGA) is distinct from adenocarcinomas located in the esophagus or distal stomach, both epidemiologically and biologically. Moreover, CGA is often identified in the advanced stage having a poor prognosis. In this paper, we would like to ascertain the possible role of GC family history, lifestyle, demographics, gastroesophageal reflux disease,Helicobacter pylori infection, and multiple genetic and epigenetic risk factors as well as several predisposing conditions ...

Authors: Waldum HL, Rehfeld JF Abstract Gastric cancer, a disease with a reduced frequency for decades, now appears to be on the rise again in young Americans. The epidemiology of gastric cancer differs between tumors in the cardia and those of the more distal parts of the stomach. The tumors are divided into the intestinal type showing glandular growth pattern and the diffuse type with a different pattern. The latter often expresses neuroendocrine and more specifically ECL-cell markers suggesting that they originate from the ECL cell, the target cell for the antral hormone, gastrin. Helicobacter pylori gastritis i...

ConclusionBariatric surgery is possible after fundoplication without taking down the fundoplication. It appears to be a viable alternative in patients seeking weight loss surgery after fundoplication, which is currently assumed contraindicated.

Authors: Mohammadifard M, Saremi Z, Rastgoo M, Akbari E Abstract There is evidence that infection by H. pylori can have a critical proportion in the development of hepatocyte injury and both noncancerous and malignant liver conditions including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This is attributed to several mechanisms, the most important one being the toxic products of the bacterium H. pylori and oxidative injury for hepatocytes which promotes hepatic injury. The present research was aimed at determining the association between H. pylori infection and the prevalence of NAFLD in Birjand, Iran. Two groups we...

Authors: Sevencan NO, Cesur O, Cakar M, Dogan E, Ozkan AE, Benli AR Abstract The aim of this study was to calculate the corrected rate of reflux in children with gastroesophageal reflux (GER)-like complaints by 24-hour pH monitoring and esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), and to determine the utility of mean platelet volume (MPV) and red cell distribution width (RDW) as diagnostic biomarkers of GER disease (GERD) in children. The subjects in this prospective study were 109 children, 6 to 18 years old. Of them, 74 subjects were with GER symptoms and 35 healthy controls. The subjects were divided into three groups: tho...

This study was aimed at assessing the role of H. pylori infection in GERD utilizing a large cohort of patients diagnosed with GERD. Methods and Materials: All patients who underwent gastroscopy for an indication of GERD during the study period between 2015 and 2017 at the EMMS Nazareth Hospital were considered eligible for the study and therefore were included. H. pylori infection was determined by the rapid urease test or histology. Severity of esophagitis was assessed using the Los Angeles classification. Univariate analysis was performed to figure out differences between patients according to H. pylori infection sta...
