AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis paper aims to review the definition and diagnostic criteria for reflux hypersensitivity and comment on the present and future management of this condition.Recent FindingsIn 2016, the Rome IV criteria redefined reflux hypersensitivity as characterized by typical reflux symptoms, absence of endoscopic mucosal disease, absence of pathologic gastroesophageal reflux, and positive symptom correlation between reflux and heartburn episodes. Though uncertain, TPRV1 receptors have been implicated in the pathophysiology of reflux hypersensitivity. Recent studies have shown neuromodulators like SSRIs, SNR...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis narrative review focuses on the presentation, contributing factors, diagnosis, and treatment of non-acid reflux. We also propose algorithms for diagnosis and treatment.Recent FindingsThere is a paucity of recent data regarding non-acid reflux. The recent Porto and Lyon consensus statements do not fully address non-acid reflux or give guidance on classification. However, recent developments in the lung transplantation field, as well as older data in the general population, argue for the importance of non-acid reflux.SummaryExtrapolating from the Porto and Lyon consensus, we generally classify p...

Gastroparesis is frequently identified following lung transplantation with incidence rates as high as 44%.1 Gastroparesis post lung transplant is of significant concern, as complications directly related to gastroparesis, specifically gastroesophageal reflux and aspiration, have been linked to the development of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS), the primary cause of graft failure and the main cause of late morbidity and mortality following lung transplantation.1 The therapy for medically refractory post lung transplant gastroparesis represents a significant therapeutic challenge, as current therapies (such as botuli...

AbstractPurpose of reviewThere is a growing interest in minimally invasive approaches to the management of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), including endoscopic GERD therapy. This review evaluates available endoscopic therapeutic options utilized in GERD management.Recent findingsApplication of radiofrequency energy at the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) reduces reflux symptoms, but esophageal acid exposure does not necessarily normalize, and esophageal sensation is compromised. Two approaches to the creation of a valve at the EGJ, the Medigus ultrasonic surgical stapler (ultrasound guided stapling of the gastric fun...

Conclusion: The incidence of postoperative GERD and esophageal stricture was 67.2% and 37.9%, respectively. The risk factors for postoperative esophageal stricture were long-gap EA/TEF and postoperative GERD.What is Known:•EA/TEF is a congenital digestive tract anomaly with a high postoperative survival rate but can be complicated by many long-term morbidities.What is New:•Long-gap EA/TEF and postoperative GERD are risk factors of anastomotic stricture after repair.•Surgeons and pediatricians should be highly experienced in managing anastomotic tension and the GERD.

A popular form of heartburn medication may increase a person’s risk of developing COVID-19, according to a new study, lengthening the already long list of risk factors for the virus. In the study, published Tuesday in pre-print form in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, scientists led by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s Dr. Brennan Spiegel conducted an online survey involving more than 86,000 people. Among them, more than 53,000 reported abdominal pain or discomfort, acid reflux, heartburn or regurgitation, and answered questions about the medications they took to relieve those symptoms. Of those, more than...

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is an effective treatment for morbid obesity and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) 1. Despite majority of patients with resolution of GERD after RYGB, some patients will continue to complain of significant, persistent reflux symptomatology or develop de novo symptoms despite aggressive medical management. It ’s true incidence is unknown and one study showed an improvement in GERD but not resolution in 22% of patients after RYGB with GERD2. Possible mechanisms may include primary lower esophageal sphincter incompetence, disruption of the angle of His or development of hiatal hernia...

Functional dyspepsia (FD) is a common condition, loosely defined by some physicians as a stomach ache without a clear cause. More specifically, it is characterized by the feeling of fullness during or after a meal, or a burning sensation in the mid-upper abdomen, just below the rib cage (not necessarily associated with meals). The symptoms can be severe enough to interfere with finishing meals or participating in regular daily activities. Those with FD often go through multiple tests like upper endoscopy, CT scan, and gastric emptying study. But despite often-severe symptoms, no clear cause (such as cancer, ulcer disease, ...

(Canadian Medical Association Journal) A new guideline from the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care, based on a rigorous systematic review of the latest evidence, found no benefit of routine screening for esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) and precursor conditions (Barrett esophagus and dysplasia) in patients with chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The guideline, published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal), recommends physicians in Canada continue current practice to not screen routinely http://www.cmaj.ca/lookup/doi/10.1503/cmaj.190814.
